Literary Treks: A Star Trek Books and Comics Podcast

Jan 23, 2015

The Q Gambit.

Star Trek Ongoing has finally made it to the five year mission and their first experience is completely unexpected when an "Old Friend" from the prime universe shows up and it's Q. What happens next sends the Enterprise to Terok Nor and mixes the crew with some of our favorite characters from Deep Space Nine.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about The Q Gambit series, walking through each issue, discussing the plot and whether or not this crossover works. 

In the news segment we ponder the news from Margaret Clark about this year's novel releases and the light she shed on them. We then move to the new issue of the Trek/Apes event to see if the story line has improved, rounding out with a look at John Byrne's latest New Visions comic staring everyone's favorite scoundrel, Harry Mudd.
