Literary Treks 140: Landed in Yoda's Swamp

Miasma by Greg Cox




The TOS movie era is a period of Star Trek history rife with story possibilities. Kirk's crew aboard the Enterprise-A has been through a lot together, and that experience has molded them into some of Starfleet's most valuable officers. Imagine if a television series had been set in this period. The episodes of that imaginary series might have been very much like the e-novella we are discussing this week.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss the newest e-novella Miasma. We talk about it feeling like an episode, the setting, growth for the characters, Spock and Saavik, logic vs. compassion, and our ratings.

In the news, we take a look at Ongoing #54.
