59: The Rough Seas of Love

Mission Gamma: Twilight.

When Deep Space Nine premiered, the stated goal of the Starfleet presence on the station and the purpose Sisko's mission was to prepare Bajor for Federation membership. As the series went on, this came close to happening once; but a warning from the Emissary put the issue on the backburner. Then the Dominion War happened. With all of that now in the past—and with other loose ends from "What You Leave Behind" either wrapped up or at least addressed—Mission Gamma sets Bajor back on a course for Federation membership and provides DS9 with a new TOS-like initiative to seek out new life and strange new worlds.

In the episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones are joined by Dan Gunther to continue our look at the DS9 relaunch series and kick off discussion of the four-part Mission Gamma. We discuss the character stories involving Bashir and Ezri, Vaughn and Prynn, how Kira is dealing with the Attainder, and what the future holds for Bajor and the United Federation of Planets.

In our news segment we get an update on Keith R.A. DeCandido's The Klingon Art of War, a New Frontier for Peter David, Dayton Ward's new TNG book Armageddon's Arrow, and we review the second issue of IDW's I, Enterprise comic.
