93: Riker Goes Full Fabio

The Gorn Crisis.

The Original Series of Star Trek gave us many aliens that became iconic, even though they may have only been seen once or twice. Andoians, Tellarites, Tholians and of course, the Gorn. Seen only two times in Star Trek, the Gorn have become fan favorites.

In this episode of Literary Treks Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about the comic series, The Gorn Crisis. We discuss the story, if the comic captures the TNG characters, the art work, the impact this comic has on the novels and our ratings. 

In the news segment we talk about the latest issue of Star Trek Ongoing: Behemoth and the upcoming May comics.

92: Good Thing Riker Doesn't Listen to Amy Winehouse

John Jackson Miller: Takedown.

Star Trek fans have been pitting captains against each other since Picard came on the scene in 1987. The debate on whether Kirk or Picard is better still rages on internet message boards or any given weekend, in any city hosting a sci-fi convention. But what if Picard went up against his protege, William Riker, who would be the victor?

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk to John Jackson Miller about his first full length Star Trek novel Takedown where Picard and Riker do go head to head. We discuss John catching up with the continuity, inspirations for the story, being concurrent with The Missing, humor in the book, major spoilers as well as writing Admiral Riker and Captain Dax.

In the news we talk about the new Almighty Flow Chart on The Trek Collective as well as Gary Seven's upcoming appearance in John Byrne's New Vision comics in issue, you guessed it, seven.

91: Pulaski Fights Crime

Una McCormack: The Missing.

The end of "The Fall" left the Star Trek universe in a little more hopeful place than it was when the series began. There is a new focus on exploration in the Federation and even with all that the characters have experienced there is still the drive to boldly go.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by author Una McCormack to talk about her lastest book The Missing. She talks about following up The Fall, writing a "day in the life" of DS9, the fun of exploring the new station, writing the character of Pulaski, as well as featuring the women of Star Trek, deepening the Tzenkethi, the themes of preconceived notions about people and atonement, all while remaining us that DS9 is truly a home for the homeless. 

In the news segment we discuss Mike Johnson's interview on what coming up for the Star Trek Ongoing comic as well as some well known villains that may make an appearance soon.

90: Through the Brita Filter

Fade In: The Writing of Star Trek Insurrection

When the lights went down in the theater in 1998, we all sat there with trepidation. We hoped that the new Star Trek movie would live up to it's predecessor First Contact and when it didn't, many of us wondered what had gone wrong. Jonathan Frakes had directed and Michael Piller had written the script, this should have been a dynamic duo.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunter are joined by Larry Nemecek and Daniel Proulx to discuss Michael Piller's unpublished book Fade In. We wonder why Trek is always trying to relive it's glory days, talk about the first story idea Star Trek: Stardust, what happens after Rick Berman and Patrick Stewart see the script, the stripping away of the Star Trekness, Ira Steven Behr's thoughts, what the studio wanted, as well as ask the questions of whether fans really know what's best and if this book helps us feel better about the movie.

In the news segment we judge a book by it's cover as well as look forward to James Swallow's newly announced Five Year Mission novel.
