118: Footie Pajamas

Shadows of the Indigent.

There are very few times in The Original Series where the trinity of Kirk, Spock and McCoy is not apart of an episode, but during the years between TOS and TMP the characters had taken different paths, Kirk was an admiral, McCoy a country doctor and Spock was on Vulcan attending to a private matter. With the Mere Anarchy series spanning the entirety of TOS, it gives the writers an opportunity to do something a little different with the characters. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about Shadows of the Indigent. We discuss the ebook series, the Motion Picture era, dissatisfaction, a buddy cop feel, strange bedfellows, greed and our ratings.

In our news segment we remind everyone that Atonement is out now!

We talk about as the universe turns, how the story is for a long-time reader, it's a trap, a captain on the edge, a lively universe, a surprising guest, being in middle book purgatory, permanent political classes, the fight for survival and the good that men don't do.

113: The Dark Knight Deception

Mere Anarchy: The Centre Cannot Hold.

The Original Series is often seen as an anthology show since the Enterprise hops from planet to planet with no real connection to what came before. The literary universe gives the authors the opportunity to show that just because a specific mission is over that does not mean the the crew never returns to further the relationship that has begun.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss the book The Centre Cannot Hold, the second part of the Mere Anarchy series. We talk about being back on Mestiko, the cold war era, spanning TOS, the Federation V Klingons, the long game, the dangerous game and give our ratings.

In the news segment we wrap up the Tholian Webs comic arc with Ongoing number 47.

When The Soul Key ended in 2009, Star Trek fans were left with a massive cliffhanger as Illiana Ghemor stood in front of the Ascendants and proclaimed; " I am the Fire." Unfortunately the story of the Ascendants arc was lost as the DS9 books caught up with the rest of the 24th century in the Typhon Pact series. that is, until now. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther welcome author David R. George III back to discuss is latest DS9 novel, Sacraments of Fire which begins the final arc of the Ascendants story.

109: Andorian High School Musical

Andor: Paradigm.

The Andorians have always been one of Star Trek's best looking races, yet even by the time the DS9 relaunch started, they had been little more than window dressing. The relaunch team set out to change that by bringing on a new character to the station, allowing the authors to create a vivid culture for the Andorians. It is no surprise that when the Worlds of DS9 series started that Andor was one of the planets visited. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther wrap up the first book in the Worlds of DS9 series with Andor: Paradigm. We discuss the differences Enterprise created, the Andorian culture, alien races being alien, science and biology, Prynn and Shar, the Prynn problem, where things end and our ratings.

In the news segment we talk about Dayton Ward's newest book In History's Shadow II: Temporal Boogaloo and the possibilities for cover art as well as look at Christopher Jones' new monthly column on StarTrek.com
