Terrorist attacks are rocking the Federation and the Klingon Empire, and the U.S.S. Prometheus teams up with the I.K.S. Bortas to investigate. However, as the investigation progresses, not all is as it seems. Are the attacks the actions of a small, militant religious group, the result of covert actions by the Typhon Pact, or something even more sinister and deadly?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson talk about the first novel in the Prometheus series, Fire with Fire. We discuss the first original German language Star Trek novel and its translation, the Prometheus and its unique abilities, the terrorism allegory, the book's relation to the on-going Pocket Books novel continuity, the role of the Klingons, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we talk about the upcoming third Discovery novel, Fear Itself, and discuss some exciting news from the world of IDW Trek comics!
