Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Mar 18, 2018

Captain's Glory.

Since his resurrection thanks to the Borg in the novel The Return, James T. Kirk has embarked on many adventures in the 24th century, often alongside Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise. However, all good things must come to an end. Kirk faces his most dangerous enemy yet and fights for all he holds dear: his family.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther talk about the Shatnerverse novel Captain's Glory. We discuss Kirk's tendency to go it alone, the plot against Starfleet, Kirk vs. Picard, the nature of the Totality, the connection to the galactic barrier, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In our news segment, we talk about the book Star Trek: The Next Generation Cats and review the comic Boldly Go #17, issue 5 of the I.D.I.C. miniseries.
