Literary Treks 145: A Skynet Brain-Sucker

Enterprise: Rise of the Federation: Live By the Code
by Christopher L. Bennett



In his Rise of the Federation series, Christopher L. Bennett has attempted an ambitious project: telling the story of the early days of the Federation, and showing how we got from there to here (to coin a phrase). Brain-sucking computers, smooth-headed Klingons, and interplanetary bigotry and conflict are just a few of the challenges that the young United Federation of Planets faces during this turbulent time.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by Bruce Gibson to talk about Live By the Code. We discuss the interesting series, the greater good, Trip's soul and Section 31, Klingon connections, interference, fanatical racism, a full plate, the problem of dependency, and our ratings.

In our news segment, we discuss the latest comic in the Legacy of Spock series, Ongoing #56.
