Star Trek Lit Wish List.

From James Blish's first novelizations in 1967 all the way through to Seekers in 2014, the Star Trek content brought to us in written form dwarfs the adventures seen on television and the big screen. No matter what story you're looking for, its out there somewhere. Learn the back history of your favorite character, explore an unknown corner of the Beta Quadrant, travel with new crews you've never met, and learn how the Federation was born. You can do it all in the expanded literary universe. And best of all, after more than 2,000 books, there are still countless stories to be told.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones are joined by Dan Gunther of Trek Lit Reviews to brainstorm on the future of Star Trek literature. We share with you a list of sixteen things we want to see in the years to come. Is your wish on our list?

In our news segment we find out what's next for the Titan series after the events of The Fall, share the new blurb for Lust's Latinum Lost and Found, and review the first issue of IDW's new doctor-centric Tricorder X-Prize spectacular, Flesh and Stone
