4: Brinkmanship, Cardassia, and Beyond

Una McCormack.

The complex storylines of Deep Space Nine are the perfect playground for Una McCormack, an author who carries a PhD in sociology into her approach to Star Trek. Beginning with the short story “Face Value” in the collection Prophecy and Change, Una has explored Cardassia, the repurcussions of “In the Pale Moonlight,” and even played with Ezri Dax in the continuing Star Trek universe. In this episode of Literary Treks we’re joined by Una to discuss why Deep Space Nine is her favourite series, how she got involved in writing Star Trek, bringing female characters to the forefront, and the intricacies of freedom and how we are all interconnected.

In our news segment we look at three new omnibuses coming from Pocket Books: Typhon Pact: The Khitomer AccordsThe Original Series: The Continuing Missions; and Destiny: The Complete Saga. We also cover IDW’s Star Trek: The Next Generation Omnibus and Star Trek: The Newspaper Strips, Volume 1, the covers for Countdown to Darkness, the Star Trek 100-page Winter Spectacular comic, and we talk in-depth about the first three issues of Brannon Braga’s HIVE.
