Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Jun 2, 2013

Shadows On the Sun.

When the Enterprise set course for the second star to the right and sailed straight on 'til morning at the end of The Undiscovered Country, it may have been the end of TOS voyages on the big screen; but it wasn't the end of the story for our characters. In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones discuss Michael Jan Friedman's 1993 novel Shadows On the Sun, which tells the story of Dr. McCoy's reunion with his ex-wife Jocelyn and his struggle to balance his ethics as a physician with the realities of an alien culture.

In our news segment we look at the Abrams ComicArts Original Topps Star Trek Trading Cards book, hear what Doug Drexler has to say about The Fall and the new Starfleet-built Deep Space 9, also hear from Andy Probert and Douglas E. Graves about the new DS9, discuss EMPIRE Magazine's list of the top Star Trek novel series (and why Star Trek: Titan would make a perfect animated series), see what IDW has in store for collectors in the Red, Blue, and Black Label releases of Star Trek Ongoing, and get Matthew's first impressions of Ongoing 21, which picks up where Into Darkness left off.
