Literary Treks 97: TOS's "Family" Episode

E-novella: The Original Series: Shadow of the Machine by Scott Harrison

In the aftermath of The Motion Picture, the TOS characters were seen supposedly going back to the final frontier; but what if they went back to Earth for repairs and shore leave first?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss Shadows of the Machine, the latest e-novella by Scott Harrison. We talk about the how heroes are real people, some of the continuity issues with other novels, dive into the stories of Kirk, Sulu, and Spock, and give our ratings.

In the news segment, we judge the covers for the New Frontier novellas, talk about blurbs for the upcoming Titan, Seekers, TOS, and DS9 books, discuss the news of a 50th anniversary trilogy, and finish up by reviewing the new issues of the Trek/Apes crossover and Ongoing #43.
