Literary Treks 116: Bajor’s John Hughes Story






Unity saw Bajor finally make it into the Federation as a member world, fulfilling one the earliest storylines of the Deep Space Nine television series. Transition is never easy and Bajor now finds itself experiencing the growing pains of integrating itself into the interstellar community.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about the Worlds of DS9 story Bajor: Fragments and Omens. We discuss the different pace, the changing times, Jake Sisko's role, Bajoran conspiracy theories, the endgame, theology and science, how people make the place, and our ratings.

In the news segment, we rejoice at the announcement of a new edition of The Star Trek Encyclopedia, the Star Trek: Prey trilogy, new books from Christopher L. Bennett, and review Star Trek/Green Lantern #2.
