Literary Treks 108: Star Trek Beyond the Thunderdome

Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Cardassia: The Lotus Flower
 by Una McCormack


The Dominion War left Cardassia ravaged. The planet is on the edge of a knife as its people scrounge for food, power, and answers, trying to rebuild a once proud civilization. The question becomes: do they look to the past for answers or forge something new?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about Una McCormack's book Cardassia: The Lotus Flower, which kicks off the Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series. We discuss a broken world, faith and belief, rehabilitating a vedek, being out of Miles' shadow, science's purity, and give our ratings.

In our news segment, we look at the new Ongoing #46 as it starts a new story: The Tholian Webs.
