Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Oct 16, 2022

Second Self.

Star Trek: Picard lead to the end of the lit-verse for Star Trek which in turn has opened the doors for writers to fill in the gaps between the previous shows and the new series.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Casey Pettitt talk about Second Self. We discuss the structure, living with the past, history, gritty, complexity of life, plain simple Garak, hope, hypocrites, our ratings and final thoughts.

In the news we have so much to talk about with new book news, two new comics coming, as well as our review of Stargazer #2, Lower Decks #1, Mirror War: Troi and Star Trek 400.
