James Swallow: The Dark Veil.

With the end of the first season of Star Trek Picard, there were still a lot of questions about what happened in those years between Star Trek Nemesis and the first episode of the series, especially with regards to Riker and his command of the Titan.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and C Bryan Jones welcome James Swallow to talk about his new book, The Dark Veil. We discuss the Titan in canon, the Riker, writing Thad, fear, Picard and a different response, twisted truth, the Jazari, AI, learning from the past, a cameo, what's next for James and our final thoughts.

In the news section we review some comics, Seven's Reckoning #3 and Year Five #18.
