When the crew of Voyager finally returned to the Alpha Quadrant after seven years on the far side of the galaxy, they never thought they would have to return. Now, on a long-term mission of exploration, they find themselves back in uncharted space, confronting not only familiar faces, but new life and new civilizations, as well as something they have long been unfamiliar with: character development!

158: Captain John Tesh

Star Trek Archives 4: Best of Deep Space Nine.

Writers and artists often struggle to properly emulate the style of a show when adapting Star Trek to comics, especially in the early days of a series. We've recently seen examples of comics wildly missing the mark! However, when it is done well, the results can be impressive. Such is the case with the Deep Space Nine tales we are looking at this week!

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing, Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson talk about the Star Trek Archives 4: Best of Deep Space Nine. We discuss it being so much fun, Stowaway part I and II, Old Wounds, Emancipation part I and II, Hostage Situation and our ratings.

In the news we talk about the announcement of another Star Trek/Green Lantern Crossover.
