Una McCormack: The Autobiography of Kathryn Janeway
Kathryn Janeway is known for her strength, drive, dedication, and nurturing nature. But how did her childhood and early career shape the woman who led her crew back from the Delta Quadrant, against all odds?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and C Bryan Jones are joined by Kathryn’s ghostwriter—also know as Una McCormack—to find out how parents, grandparents, and even that pesky little sister, helped a young girl from Indiana become one of Starfleet’s most decorated admirals. We also discuss the important role that mentors play in our lives and how the Federation–Cardassian Wars influenced Janeway and those growing up in Starfleet families during the 24th century. In our news segment, we review the first two issues of the Star Trek: Voyager IDW comic miniseries Seven’s Reckoning.

Greg Cox: A Contest of Principles.

The crew of the Enterprise face a challenge unlike any other when when they are called to a system with three different inhabited planets and are asked to observe a contentious election on the only planet in the system the Federation has a relationship with.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and C Bryan Jones welcome Greg Cox back to the show to talk about his book A Contest of Principles. We discuss keeping it fresh, the ethics of news, story genesis, part of the story, responsibility, re-litigating the past, finding out something new, does the right thing, working with new Trek, what Greg has coming up and where to find him online.
