Jean-Luc Picard: Son, brother, explorer, captain, diplomat, hero. The public perception of this great figure from future history is certainly well known: both his numerous triumphs and his public tragedies. But what made him the great man that shaped so much of what the Federation is today? From his formative years on the family vineyard in Labarre, France, to his halcyon days as captain of the Federation flagship, hear the story of one of the most inspirational figures in galactic history is his own words!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are joined by David A. Goodman, the "editor" of The Autobiography of Jean-Luc Picard: The Story of One of Starfleet's Most Inspirational Captains. We talk about Picard's early years, his time aboard the U.S.S. Stargazer, his relationship with numerous figures throughout his life including Beverly and Jack Crusher, the context that this book adds to The Next Generation, a surprising Star Trek: Discovery connection, and wrap up by discussing David Goodman's other role as executive producer of The Orville, including some insights into a future episode of that show.

In the news segment, we talk about the new Waypoint trade paperback, detail IDW's upcoming January releases, and review issue 13 of Boldly Go, the first in a new 6-part storyline, I.D.I.C.!
