Horn and Ivory.
When we last left Kira she was faced with a choice of paths on a distant world in the Delta Quadrant. Two Iconian gateways offered very different escape routes from a seemingly hopeless situation. Which did she choose? Demons of Air and Darkness left a huge thread dangling—but it was by design.
In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones discuss the Deep Space Nine entry in the final Gateways book, What Lay Beyond, which tells the story of what happened to Kira after Taran’atar returned to the station. We explore what this short story, “Horn and Ivory,” adds to the richness of Bajor and how it helps Kira stop living in the shadow of the baseball. In news we find out what the coming year has in store for fans of The Lost Era and Section 31, and we delve into Mike Johnson’s new StarTrek.com series “Writer’s Log.”
