Dayton Ward: Moments Asunder.

It affectionately became known as the Lit-Verse to Star Trek fans, beginning in 2003, with the release of the first novel to take place after the finale of Deep Space Nine in a book called Avatar. After the end of Enterprise, the universe in the novels would continue to expand with unprecedented freedom to explore the characters lives past the finales of each of the shows and now that Star Trek: Picard has begun, it's time for this iteration of the universe to find its way into continuity.

In this episode of Literary Treks host Matthew Rushing is joined by author Dayton Ward to talk about his first book in the Star Trek: Coda series, Moments Asunder. We discuss, the end being near, batting order, collaboration, setting it all up, the villains, complete consumption, loose ends, Wesley, Picard's lineage, who's happy, who lives/who dies, early plans, open doors, how Dayton is feeling, where to find him online and our final thoughts.

In the news section Bruce Gibson joins Matthew to discuss the zero issue of Mirror War as well as the finale to Year Five.
