2015 has been a banner year for Star Trek literature. With just one more book to talk about, we go back to where it all began: The Space Ship Enterprise under the command of Captain Christopher Pike. An incident involving a young woman torn between two worlds may lead to open conflict with the Klingon Empire!

133: Brother From Another Mother

Mere Anarchy: Its Hour Come Round.

The film Star Trek: Generations saw the loss of a legend: Captain James T. Kirk, presumed dead during the maiden voyage of the Enterprise-B. The loss is a devastating one, especially for his former crew and the lives he has touched over the many years of his Starfleet career, including the people of the ravaged planet Mestiko. As the people of that world debate joining the Federation, the former crew of the Enterprise come together one last time to usher in a new era for the Payav.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about the last book in the Mere Anarchy series It’s Hour Come Round. We discuss another end, the loss of Kirk, Bones, family, parallels, adversity bringing people together, an ambiguous ending and our ratings.

In the news segment we take a look the brand new comic Starlet Academy issue #1

132: It Smells Like Burning

When the Deep Space Nine relaunch began in 2001, readers were treated to a great series of stories that laid the groundwork for the shared continuity of the 24th century novels. Unfortunately, the ongoing story of DS9 under Captain Kira came to an unexpected halt with The Soul Key, the final novel before the narrative was jumped forward to catch up with the rest of the shared universe.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about The Soul Key. We discuss the end, a convoluted plot, Ghemor and her plot, characters we know and love, forgotten characters, comparisons, the cover and our ratings.

In the news segment we talk about Ongoing #52 and Star Trek/Green Lantern #6.
