Last Full Measure.

In the final episode of Star Trek: Enterprise, fans were faced with a tragedy: the death of Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker, a fan-favorite character. However, because the episode took place as a holodeck simulation, there was some leeway to interpret those events differently. Enter authors Andy Mangels and Michael A. Martin, who took that idea and ran with it, seeding the hints of Trip's ultimate fate in a novel set during Enterprise's third season.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are joined by Warp 5's Brandi Jackola to talk about the Enterprise novel Last Full Measure. We discuss the plot of the novel, the conflict between the 'squids' and 'sharks,' a story of differing perspectives, Archer's ethical issues, Trip's ultimate fate, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we talk about the impending end to John Byrne's New Visions series and review the latest Star Trek: Discovery comic, issue #3 of The Light of Kahless.
