Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Aug 28, 2015

Shadows of the Indigent.

There are very few times in The Original Series where the trinity of Kirk, Spock and McCoy is not apart of an episode, but during the years between TOS and TMP the characters had taken different paths, Kirk was an admiral, McCoy a country doctor and Spock was on Vulcan attending to a private matter. With the Mere Anarchy series spanning the entirety of TOS, it gives the writers an opportunity to do something a little different with the characters. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about Shadows of the Indigent. We discuss the ebook series, the Motion Picture era, dissatisfaction, a buddy cop feel, strange bedfellows, greed and our ratings.

In our news segment we remind everyone that Atonement is out now!
