Literary Treks 118: Footie Pajamas

Mere Anarchy, Book Three
Shadows of the Indignant by Dave Galanter






There are very few times in The Original Series where the trinity of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy is not a part of an episode, but during the years between TOS and TMP the characters had taken different paths. Kirk was an admiral, McCoy a country doctor, and Spock was on Vulcan attending to a private matter. With the Mere Anarchy series spanning the entirety of TOS, the writers were given an opportunity to do something a little different with the characters.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about Shadows of the Indignant. We discuss the e-book series, the Motion Picture era, dissatisfaction, a buddy cop feel, strange bedfellows, greed, and our ratings.

In our news segment, we remind everyone that Atonement is out now!
