Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Apr 24, 2016

Burden of Knowledge.

The Original Series is an era of Star Trek that lends itself to being depicted in the pages of a comic book: bright colors and outlandish plots all make for entertaining comic stories! However, what makes these stories quintessential Star Trek is the fact that on top of being entertaining, they give us the opportunity to think about issues in a way that other forms of entertainment don’t.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by Bruce Gibson to talk about the Star Trek comics Burden of Knowledge. We discuss the artwork, Uncertain Perceptions, A Failure to Communicate, A Matter of Perspective, The Burden of Knowledge and our ratings.

In the news segment we talk about the last issue of Starfleet Academy and the first issue of Manifest Destiny.
