Robert Greenberger: A Time to Hate.

The situation on Delta Sigma IV continues to deteriorate. Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-E must find a way to stop the violence and introduce a cure that will set the warring people back on the path of peace. Meanwhile, Riker tracks down his father and learns the terrible truth behind the problems facing the once-peaceful world. Is the Federation truly to blame?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson review A Time to Hate before being joined by author Robert Greenberger to talk about both of his books in the A Time To series. We discuss the situation on Delta Sigma IV, the supposed cure, bridging the gap between Insurrection and Nemesis, Riker and Troi's relationship, Riker's relationship with his father, a dark secret revealed at the end of the novel, and we wrap up with what Bob is currently working on and where you can find him online.

In the news, we talk about the upcoming Star Trek: Epic Episodes from Titan publishing, as well as speculate about an upcoming project from IDW for which artist J.K. Woodward has been dropping hints about on Instagram.

The Fall of Terok Nor.

Mysterious events are taking place on Deep Space Nine: Quark is accused of murdering a visiting Andorian, Jake and Nog reveal a mysterious, hidden holosuite deep in the bowels of the station, and a fearsome Cardassian scientist arrives for sinister purposes. All of these events relate to a mystery that has lain dormant since the withdrawal of the Cardassian forces from DS9 following the end of the Occupation of Bajor: a lost set of orbs that may have the ability to set the apocalypse in motion!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss the first book in the Deep Space Nine: Millennium trilogy: The Fall of Terok Nor by Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens. We talk about the periods of time the book covers, a somewhat confusing but compelling plot, some fun elements of the story, the varied cast of villains, questions we're left with at the end of the novel, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we talk a bit about Star Trek: Discovery: The Making of Season One, available now from Titan books!

Diplomatic Implausibility.

At the end of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Worf traded his life as a Starfleet officer for a career as a Federation diplomat. While some aspects of that life are similar to the years he spent in service to Starfleet, there are many new challenges and attitudes to overcome. When a rebellion on a Klingon-controlled planet threatens to involve the Federation, it's up to Worf to sort out the issue, facing a difficult challenge in diplomacy on his first assignment as Ambassador to the Klingon Empire!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson discuss the TNG novel Diplomatic Implausibility by Keith R.A. DeCandido. We talk about Worf's new role, the crew of the I.K.S. Gorkon, the aliens of the week, Federation/Klingon relations, the oddity of this being a TNG novel, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

At the top of the show, we review the newly-released third issue of TNG: Terra Incognita.

A Time to Love.

As Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise continue to deal with the fallout from their disastrous mission at the Rashanar battle site, a new crisis threatens to unravel the civilization on an alien colony. A murder has been committed in a society that has known nothing but peace for a century, and at the center of it all: Kyle Riker, Commander William Riker's father!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss A Time to Love, the fifth novel in the A Time To series and the first part of a duology by Robert Greenberger. We talk about the Enterprise's damaged reputation, Troi's efforts to deal with a despondent crew, Kyle Riker's role in a unfolding planetary crisis, a particularly bad case of gas, changes on the horizon for the command crew of the Enterprise, a strange b-plot that has Geordi trading with the Ferengi, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
