163: Pinochle Buddies

Purgatory’s Key: Dayton Ward.

In the 50th anniversary, it is important to remember Star Trek's roots. Morality plays that take place against the backdrop of high-minded science fiction concepts were the backbone of Star Trek's Original television series. It is fitting, then, that an epic 50th anniversary book trilogy closes out on a classic-style Trek adventure by the ever-talented Dayton Ward and Kevin Dillmore!

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing, Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are joined by author Dayton Ward to talk about Star Trek Legacies: Purgatory’s Key. We discuss celebrating the 50th, keeping the TOS feel, monolithic cultures, new dimensions, characters and all that Dayton is working on now.

In the news segment we talk through New Visions #12, the flow chart update and the newest ships joining the Starship collection from Eaglemoss.

162: The Lukewarm War

To Brave the Storm. John Jackson Miller in News.

The Romulan War: a pivotal conflict in the history of the Star Trek universe. This clash of civilizations would bring humanity to the brink of destruction and lay the groundwork for the formation of the Federation. This week, we look at the definitive chronicle of that momentous event and discover how the crew of the NX-01 faced down the existential threat of the Romulan Star Empire.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing, Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson talk about Star Trek Enterprise: To Brave the Storm. We discuss if the book covers enough, the pacing, Mayweather returning, T’Pau’s change of heart, Romulans, Trip and T’Pol, what might have been and ratings.

In a very special news segment we are joined by John Jackson Miller to preview his new trilogy Star Trek Prey as well as the news that Kirsten Beyer is shepherding the Star Trek Discovery books and comics.
