James Swallow: The Ashes of Tomorrow.

Time is of the essence for the literary universe of Star Trek and there are hard choices for the characters to make that will see them pitted against friends and thrust into the most desperate situations of their lives.

In this episode of Literary Treks host Matthew Rushing is joined by author James Swallow to talk about his middle portion of the Coda trilogy, The Ashes of Tomorrow. We discuss how James is feeling, tying in DS9, Sisko and Kira, Bashir, Miles, Ro, Quark and Nog, Picard's next generation, artificial intelligence, the fire in which we burn, shadows, Worf's moment, prophecy fulfilled, wrapping up dangling threads, final thoughts and where to find James online.
