The Root of All Rage.

Across the Alpha Quadrant, opinion is turning against the Renao. A terrorist group, The Purifying Flame, is responsible for the destruction of starbases and colonies in the Federation and the Klingon Empire, and now the Empire screams for blood. It's up to the crews of the U.S.S. Prometheus and the I.K.S. Bortas to investigate and bring The Purifying Flame to justice, but can they complete their mission before the calls for vengeance overwhelm the situation, or will cooler heads ultimately prevail?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss the second book in the Star Trek: Prometheus trilogy, The Root of All Rage. We talk about the delicate relationship between the Federation and the Klingon Empire, bigotry and hate, mistreatment of people who are different, the situation back on Earth, Lwaxana Troi's role, Renao mythology, a surprise tie to a TOS episode, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, Bruce and Dan review the fourth and final issue of IDW's Star Trek: Discovery: The Light of Kahless.
