David Mack: A Time to Heal.

Federation forces, led by Picard and the Enterprise, have captured Tezwa, a world that threatened to become a flashpoint in a devastating war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. However, as difficult as the attack itself was, the occupation of Tezwa will prove even more difficult, costly, and bloody. And the price that Picard's crew pays in lives may be in the service of a cover-up that reaches to the very highest levels of the Federation...

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson welcome back author David Mack to talk about his novel A Time to Heal. We discuss the difference between this book and A Time to Kill, what Starfleet at war is really like, the effect of war on the people involved, Troi's anger, Riker's experiences as a prisoner of Kinchawn, and wrap up with a surprise announcement from David Mack about an upcoming project, as well as where you can find him online!

At the top of the show, we respond to viewer comments about episode 248, all about DS9: Millennium, Book III: Inferno by Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens.

Since its debut in September of 1966, Star Trek has held a cherished place in the hearts of fans the world over.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther speak with David Tilotta and Curt McAloney, authors of Star Trek: Lost Scenes. We discuss how they became fans of Star Trek, the origin of the book, their website startrekhistory.com, the process of researching the material, behind the scenes, deleted scenes, and bloopers from The Original Series, and wrap up with what they have planned for the future and where you can find them online.

Inferno.

The unthinkable has happened: the red and blue wormholes have come together to signal the annihilation of the universe as we know it. However, in a pocket reality, the crew of Deep Space Nine must work to return to their station at one of two points in history. The first: The Day of Withdrawal, when the Cardassians left DS9 at the end of the occupation, and the second: the moment when the red wormhole destroyed the station. Can Sisko and his crew change history and possibly prevent Armageddon?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson discuss the conclusion to the Deep Space Nine: Millennium trilogy: Inferno by Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens. We talk about the crew's individual personal hells, a paradox-filled time-twisting storyline, some lingering mysteries in the story, Arla Ries's surprising arc, Sisko's role as the Emissary, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we talk about an upcoming Discovery comic from IDW: Captain Saru, set for release in February 2019.
