Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

David Mack: Harm's Way.

One of the beauties of tie-in fiction is the ability to fill in the gaps between episodes, giving authors the ability to show how characters deal with the aftermath of the life-changing events that don't always get seen onscreen in the next episode.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Casey Pettitt welcome back author David Mack to talk about his latest novel for The Original Series, Harm's Way. We discuss working Vanguard back in, aftermath, is a beautiful lie beautiful, Spock, respect, the prime directive, the Klingons, just say no, the future and our final thoughts.

In the news we review two new comics, issue two of Resurgence and the first issue of The Illyrian Enigma.
