Keith R.A. DeCandido: A Singular Destiny.

The galaxy has been changed forever. The Borg, once the Federation's most fearsome enemy, has been eliminated once and for all thanks to the efforts of four courageous Starfleet captains. But now, the Federation and the rest of the powers in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants are left to pick up the pieces after the devastating invasion that left billions dead. New challenges and mysteries are on the horizon, however, and the long-term consequences of the Borg invasion are only now beginning to be felt.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther are joined by Keith R.A. DeCandido to discuss his novel A Singular Destiny. We talk about following up Destiny, the interstitial chapters which give us a glimpse into hidden corners of Federation society, Sonek Pran and his uniqueness in the Star Trek universe, President Nan Bacco, the Typhon Pact, A Singular Destiny's legacy, and wrap up with what Keith is working on now and where he can be found online.

In the news segment, we report on four upcoming titles: Picard: The Last Best Hope by Una McCormack, Picard: Official Collector's Edition behind-the-scenes book from Titan, The Original Series: The Higher Frontier by Chrisopher L. Bennett, and Hell's Mirror, a Khan/Mirror Universe comic coming from IDW! We also respond to Babel Conference feedback for Literary Treks 291: Get People Laughing While They're Squatting and Literary Treks 292: More of a Culmets Book.
