Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Sep 28, 2014

Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found).

Ladies and gentlemen, Vulcan Love Slave as we know it has now been in existence for three versions, and a fourth will be added just as soon as Quark can figured out to get his hands on it. Yes, when business at Quark's Bar, Grill, Gaming House and Holosuite Arcade began to dry up, a big move was needed to get things back on track. Something bold, something exciting, something… exclusive. The holosuite program Vulcan Love Slave has become a bit of a legend within Star Trek, but we've never learned much about it. It's just been mentioned in episodes like "The Ascent," "Doctor Bashir, I Presume," and "The Emperor's New Cloak." So what better topic for a fun adventure set aboard DS9—with a quick trip to Wrigley's Pleasure Planet?

In this episode of Literary Treks we're joined by the mastermind behind The Trek Collective, James Edwards, to discuss Terry J. Erdmann and Paula M. Block's new eNovella Lust's Latinum Lost (and Found). Few people know more about Deep Space Nine than Terry and Paula, and they deliver a delightful romp that slips in some meaningful messages about empowerment and equality.

James also joins us for our news segment as we take a look at IDW's Star Trek: New Adventures collection of the first twelve issues of Star Trek Ongoing, judge some apes by their covers, and find out how John Byrne plan to bring back Harry Mudd.
