111: A Pocket Universe of the 24th Century

New Frontier: The Returned, Part 1.

When the New Frontier series began in 1997 it was a bold experiment for Pocket Books, a series without lead characters from on of the Star Trek series. Over the years it's popularity has grown and has a loyal following which has lead to a new three part ebook series. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss The Returned, Part 1. We talk about New Frontiers return, working for a resolution, jumping in late, popcorn Trek, the legacy of New Frontier, a demigod, 3 instead of 1, if this is the end and why people should read the series.

For the news segment we look at New Visions issue 7 as well as the beginning of The Spectrum War, Star Trek's crossover with Green Lantern.
