47: Are You Going to Quote Kirk to Me Again?

Dayton Ward: Peaceable Kingdoms.

Over the past decade the prime universe has grown richly complex as print adventures have taken over where television left off. Now, in a new five-book series titled "The Fall," some of Star Trek's greatest authors are going to rock the Federation to its core with an adventure that takes place over a period of sixty days and involves TNG, DS9, and Titan.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones conclude our series of interviews with the authors of The Fall as Dayton Ward joins us to talk about his entry in the series, the final book, Peaceable Kingdoms. Dayton talks about batting clean-up in an epic five-book series, how collaboration between all the authors helped make The Fall such a seamless story, giving Beverly Crusher a meaningful role, and the future of Picard.

45: Out of Your Comfort Zone

James Swallow: The Poisoned Chalice.

Over the past decade the prime universe has grown richly complex as print adventures have taken over where television left off. Now, in a new five-book series titled "The Fall," some of Star Trek's greatest authors are going to rock the Federation to its core with an adventure that takes place over a period of sixty days and involves TNG, DS9, and Titan.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones continue our series of interviews with the authors of The Fall as James Swallow joins us to discuss the fourth book in the series, The Poisoned Chalice. James is returning to the world of Titan for the first time since Synthesis to get Riker and his crew out of their comfort zone. We learn about the real-world politics behind The Poisoned Chalice, how the world view of Federation citizens and leaders has changed in the aftermath of war, and what it was like to write the first ever meeting between two onscreen favorites—Tuvok and Nog. We also find out what James has in store for us on the Star Trek front in 2014.

In our news segment we get a first look at the cover art for Greg Cox’s No Time Like the Past, find out more about David R. George III’s John Harriman-Demora Sulu novel One Constant Star, and also check in on Jeffrey Lang’s Light Fantastic. In comics we take a peek at IDW’s early-2014 slate, which includes Ongoing #31—the first part of I, Enterprise—and a reissue of the first six classic Gold Key comics. And to top it all off, we close out the year with a review of Ongoing #28, the final chapter of The Khitomer Conflict.

38: Beyond the Apocalypse

Una McCormack: The Crimson Shadow.

Over the past decade the prime universe has grown richly complex as print adventures have taken over where television left off. Now, in a new five-book series titled "The Fall," some of Star Trek's greatest authors are going to rock the Federation to its core with an adventure that takes place over a period of sixty days and involves TNG, DS9, and Titan. In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones continue our series of interviews with the authors of The Fall as Una McCormack joins us to talk about her entry in the series, The Crimson Shadow. As the second book in The Fall, The Crimson Shadow continues the overall story but also brings together two fan favorites—Picard and Garak—to further the story of a post-war Cardassia. Una talks to us about the genesis of her novel, the political undertones, and what she wanted to accomplish in writing Picard and Garak. In news we steer clear of a super-spoilery blurb for Peaceable Kingdoms, preview Star Trek Ongoing #29 and Khan #4, and bring you our review of the second installment in The Khitomer Conflict.
