The Husnock: described as beings of "hideous intelligence," this sprawling empire represented a surprise threat to the United Federation of Planets in the 24th century. However, the inevitable invasion never arrived due to the fact that the entire species was wiped out by an incredibly powerful and enraged entity, a Douwd who went by the name of Kevin Uxbridge. Now, all of the ships, weapons, and machines of war of the Husnock sit empty and unclaimed, awaiting the opportunistic clutches of Nausicaans, Ferengi, Pakleds, and more.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther are joined by author David Mack to discuss his latest Titan novel, Fortune of War. We talk about the links to TNG's The Survivors, the Husnock, Admiral Riker's new role, the characters of Titan, "The Chase" on speed, and wrap up with what David Mack has on the go for future novels and where you can find him online.

In our news segment, we are once again joined by Earl Grey and The Edge host Amy Nelson to talk about the final issue of the TNG: Mirror Broken comic from IDW.
