Deep Space Nine under siege! A seemingly indestructible and implacable foe is tearing through DS9 deck-by-deck, destroying everyone in their path. Salvation will come from an unlikely place, however, and it is up to Quark and Odo to work together to solve the mystery and save the station!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther are joined by guest host Brandon Shea-Mutala to discuss the Deep Space Nine novel Fallen Heroes by Dafydd ab Hugh. We talk about when the novel was written, a Quark and Odo team-up, whether the author captured the voices of characters adequately, time travel shenanigans, the alien of the week, the resolution of the novel, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news section, we review issue #18 of Boldly Go, which is sadly the final issue of the series.
