Literary Treks 89: Elephant in the Room

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Slings and Arrows, Book V: A Weary Life

The TNG episode "Second Chances" gave us a duplicate of William Riker and the DS9 episode "Defiant" left that duplicate, Tom, in a Cardassian prison. What we never got a chance to see was the effect all of these things had on Will until the Slings and Arrows' entry, A Weary Life.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about this penultimate book in the Slings and Arrows e-book series. We ask the question of where Tom is, discuss the trio of Riker, LaForge, and Daniels, the genuine emotion of Riker, the news media and Maquis problem as well as our ratings.

In our news segment we remind everyone that Takedown by John Jackson Miller is out, discuss the Axanar announcement of an anthology collection that's on the way, as well as celebrate 20 years of Star Trek: Voyager by discussing our favorite Voyager books.
