24: The Heroes Of Their Own Story

William Leisner and The Shocks of Adversity.

The Federation is usually in the position of "good" pitted against clear foes such as the Klingons, the Romulans, or the Dominion. But what if it encountered a group that looked very much like itself? How would the Federation react and how far can you trust someone after glimpsing only the surface? In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones are joined by author William Leisner to talk about his new TOS novel The Shocks of Adversity, the inspiration for the Federation's seeming reflection in the Goeg Domain, and the issue of cultural tolerance. We also find out how William original got into Star Trek and how he found himself writing for the franchise.

In our news segment we check in on Star Trek Ongoing #22 and #25 and the progress on Volume Two of the collected newspaper strips, which will cover October 1981 through December 1983.
