159: The Twilight Zone

Best Defense: David Mack.

A dangerous rescue mission into a confusing alternate reality. A critical peace conference between the Federation and the Klingon Empire is threatened. The Enterprise and her crew up against impossible odds. And for Leonard McCoy, the stakes are far more personal than he could possibly imagine. The epic Star Trek 50th anniversary trilogy continues!

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing, Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson welcome David Mack to talk about his latest book Star Trek Legacies: Best Defense. We discuss writing TOS, the transfer key, the story, characters, new dimensions and aliens, plus what’s coming up next for David.

For news we celebrate the last issue of Star Trek Ongoing and look at the 50th anniversary cover special.
