New Frontier: Turnaround.

When Admiral Jellico seemingly steals a top-secret Starfleet prototype starship, a comic adventure of epic proportions is kicked off. Captain Calhoun of the Excalibur sets off in pursuit, but can he catch Jellico before destruction rains down on Bravo Station? Everything is not what it seems in this week's graphic novel adventure!

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing, Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson talk about the comic series New Frontier: Turnaround. We discuss the New Frontier timeline, the Kelvin Timeline feel, characterization, the story, if it works for New Frontier fans, any surprises and our ratings.

In new we discuss the blurb for Patterns of Interference and the second issue of the Waypoint comic.
