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!

David Mack: Seekers 3: Long Shot.

What if the laws of probability were no longer a factor and the most improbable and nigh unthinkable things began to happen? This is exactly what the crew of the Sagittarius runs into in the latest Seekers novel and the solution may just cost them more than they bargained for.

We talk about it’s creation, being villainless, illustrating the Prime Directive, scientific research, crew interactions, personal connections, life to the fullest, what’s next for David and where to find him online.

115: Maybe He's Not An 80's Fan

New Frontier: The Returned Part 2.

Part one of The Returned left us with a classic cliffhanger as Calhoun and his crew had traveled to a pocket universe in hot pursuit of the aliens responsible for the genocide of the Xenexians and to rescue the Starfleet personnel they had taken hostage.   

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss The Returned Part 2. 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.

In the new segment we discuss the latest issue of Star Trek Ongoing #48
