36: An Archduke Ferdinand Moment

David R. George III: Revelation and Dust.

The Star Trek universe as you know it is about to change. Over the past decade the prime universe has grown richly complex as print adventures have taken over where television left off. Now, in a new five-book series titled "The Fall," some of Star Trek's greatest authors are going to rock the Federation to its core with an adventure that takes place over a period of sixty days and involves TNG, DS9, and Titan.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones kick off The Fall with special guest David R. George III, whose DS9 novel Revelation and Dust sets the stage for the series. We discuss the incredible new Starfleet-built Deep Space 9 station, how Doug Drexler, Andy Probert, and Douglas E. Graves helped shape the visual design, the continuation of Kira's journey and the broader DS9 story, the challenges of writing a book that builds upon so many past novels while making the story accessible to new readers, and how Revelation and Dust not only sets up The Fall but also pays tribute to Deep Space Nine on its 20th anniversary. Plus, in news, we take a close look inside Larry Nemecek's Stellar Cartography.
