101: Rainbow Rings of Terror

Gold Key Comics Vol.1 Part 2.

Starting with issue one, Gold Key created a unique look at what Star Trek might have been without the philosophy Gene Roddenberry and basis in scientific extrapolation. The pulp wackiness of the series has delighted readers for close to 50 years.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther finish their look at the first volume of IDW's reprints. We talk about some of the ways things from the show begin to creep in to the comic, issues 4-6, where we laugh a lot and give our ratings. 

In our news segment we review Ongoing #44.

100: In the Shadow of the Emissary

Rising Son.

The last time Jake Sisko was seen in the Deep Space Nine relaunch, he had bought a ship from Quark and was headed into the wormhole, in an effort to fulfill a prophecy that seemed to indicate he would be reunited with his father. It would not be till six books later that we would have an answer to the question, "What happened to Jake?".

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about Rising Son. We discuss our first impressions, Opaka's escape, Jake's life in his father's shadow, how we live, free will, predestination, responsibility, life's purpose, planting the seeds for the future and our ratings. 

In our news segment we talk about the way the Star Trek books hold up, judge a book by it's cover and then celebrate the 100th episode by talking about some of the favorite books we've covered, interviews and a sincere thank you to all of the listeners for their support as well as to the authors for being so generous with their time.

99: Dr. Suess Trek

Gold Key Comics Vol. 1.

The first company to produce Star Trek comics was Gold Key. Armed in the beginning with only production art and never having seen the show, these comics give fans a picture of what Star Trek might have been without the philosophy and hope for the future Roddenberry instilled in the franchise. 

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther go back to issues 1 though 3 of the Gold Key comics, collected in IDW's stunning Volume 1. We discuss the impact of creators who had never seen Star Trek beyond publicity stills and how this impacts the look, feel and interpretation of Star Trek, asking the question; "If this was what Star Trek had been, would it have lasted 50 years?". We walk through each issue and conclude with our ratings for the first 3 issues. 

In our news segment we talk about the upcoming Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover as well as take a look at the last issue of the Trek/Apes series.

Uncertain Logic.

There is always a beginning and The Rise of the Federation series is the story of how a fledgling group of planets will become the shining beacon of hope known as the Federation we see in The Original Series and beyond.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther dive into the latest book by Christopher L. Bennett, Uncertain Logic. We talk about the surprise of learning there is another Enterprise in Starfleet, the politics in this period of Federation history, filling in the gaps, the Deltan story line, the power of devaluation, the battle for the Vulcan soul, the price of lies and our ratings.
