Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Jun 14, 2015

Armageddon's Arrow. 

It has been a long road of recovery for the Federation since the events of Destiny. Captain Picard once asked during a previous war, "Does anyone remember when we use to be explorers?". Now the time has come for the Enterprise to once again boldly go and author Dayton Ward has given us a front row seat in Armageddon's Arrow. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by Dayton Ward to talk about this latest adventure for the TNG crew. We discuss changing course in the 24th century, the new crew with the old, Picard's changes, creating races and technology, being careful what you wish for, literary on ramp, balancing resources, how things circle back, section 1701, what Taurik saw, the ending, trying to surprise readers and upcoming things from Dayton. 

In the news section we find out exactly what Dan was doing for Section 31 in Iceland and talk about the soon release of The Wit and Wisdom of Star Trek.
