Saving the galaxy on a regular basis is pretty tiring work, and for Starfleet's finest, rest and relaxation is important. But when two legendary Starfleet captains decide to take a vacation on Bajor, it isn't long before another crisis arises, and it's up to Captain James T. Kirk and Captain Jean-Luc Picard to once again save the day.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss the Shatnerverse novel Captain's Peril, the first book in the Totality trilogy. We talk about the murder mystery plot, philosophical differences between Kirk, Spock, and Picard, different ideas about risk, the Prime Directive debate, the huge left turn the story takes at the end, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we discuss a poll in our Goodreads group about where our listeners get their Star Trek novels.
