David Mack: A Ceremony of Losses.
Over the past decade the prime universe has grown richly complex as print adventures have taken over where television left off. Now, in a new five-book series titled "The Fall," some of Star Trek's greatest authors are going to rock the Federation to its core with an adventure that takes place over a period of sixty days and involves TNG, DS9, and Titan.
In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones continue our series of interviews with the authors of The Fall as David Mack joins us to talk about his entry in the series, A Ceremony of Losses, which falls right in the middle of the saga and centers around the Andorian reproductive crisis. We learn about the genesis of his part of the story, the challenges in bringing DS9 characters back into the fold, the real-world historical bases for may aspects of the story, and a bit more about David’s upcoming books Seekers and Section 31: Disavowed. In news we get an update on Kirsten Beyer’s next Voyager novel, Protectors, and we have some Fun with Kirk and Spock.
