Dave Galanter: Dead Endless.

While Stamets leads the U.S.S. Discovery through the mycelial network, an error occurs, and the starship becomes trapped within the network. A mysterious stranger, calling out to Stamets, appears to be a human Starfleet officer, but the crew can't be sure. With the starship's hull suffering under the onslaught of the inhabitants of the network, can Stamets and the rest of the crew of Discovery escape in time?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are joined by author Dave Galanter to discuss his new Discovery novel Dead Endless. We talk about how the story came about, the setting of this story, the relationship between Hugh Culber and Paul Stamets, the mysterious Ephraim, the secondary characters in the story, the bond between a trio of great characters, and end with where Dave can be found online and what he is working on now.

At the top of the show, we review the new Voyager mirror universe comic Mirrors and Smoke, and respond to your feedback from The Babel Conference for Literary Treks 290: I Want All the Spock.

Robb Pearlman: Body By Starfleet.

Let's face it: as Star Trek fans, our primary way of enjoying this franchise is by sitting and watching the hundreds of hours of television shows and films that make up our favorite science fiction universe. But now, thanks to a book that recently hit store shelves, we can use Star Trek to inspire us to get up off the couch and get more active!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther welcome author Robb Pearlman on the show to discuss his new book Body By Starfleet: A Fitness Guide. We talk about where the idea for the guide came from, the real exercises within its pages, the fantastic illustrations, some of our favorite exercises, how non-humanoids can get in on the action, an amusing tie-in video on startrek.com, and wrap up with where Robb can be found online and what he's working on next.

At the top of the show, Bruce and Dan review Star Trek: Year Five #8 from IDW and respond to feedback from The Babel Conference for Literary Treks 289: It Is Better to Heal Than to Harm.

Discovery: Aftermath.

At the culmination of season two of Star Trek: Discovery, the titular starship has traveled through a wormhole into an uncertain future. However, the century they left behind is uncertain as well. A tenuous state of peace exists between the Federation and the Klingon Empire, a situation that both Captain Pike and Chancellor L'Rell are eager to capitalize on. But will they manage to maintain that peace with the forces of chaos doing all they can to disrupt it?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are joined by The Edge's Brandi Jackola to discuss the Discovery comic trilogy Aftermath. We talk about the surprise return of Kor, Spock's coming to terms with the aftermath of season two of Discovery, L'Rell's ability to play politics, The Shadows of Kahless, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings for the trilogy as a whole.

In the news segment, we talk about the release of Star Trek: Picard: Countdown #1 from IDW and Body by Starfleet by Robb Pearlman. We also respond to feedback from The Babel Conference for Literary Treks 288: The Golden Girls in Space.
