One of the joys of Star Trek literature is what it can add to the series, even the bad episodes can be improved upon through a well written book or comic.
In this episode of Literary Treks, Matthew Rushing is joined by author Tony Daniel to talk about his latest novel, Savage Trade that follows up on the classic TOS episode, "Savage Curtain." We discuss the genesis of the book, building from what is seen in the show, good and evil, historical characters, expanding on the Vulcans, writing the ensemble, why Tony chose certain figures from history, creating races for the book, his upcoming projects, and lastly where to find Tony online.
With Dan on a super-secret Section 31 mission we are saving news and comic reviews till the next episode.
