John Jackson Miller: The High Country. 
One of the joys of a new Star Trek series is when the literature is able to fill in gaps and create new adventures for the crew.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Casey Pettitt are joined by author John Jackson Miller to talk about his new book, the first Strange New Worlds novel, The High Country. We discuss the timeline, the genesis, an event novel, as utopia's turn, willful blindness, everyone is trapped, you can't stop time, technology, use of characters, everything means something, what's next for John and our final thoughts.
