Star Trek books have always been good at filling in the gaps and giving us a deeper understanding for the decisions the characters make on screen, it’s one of the joys of Treklit.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by author Dave Galanter to talk about his newest TOS book, Crisis of Consciousness. We discuss his Star Trek story, coming up with new adventures, his influences, writing the TOS cast and them working together, dovetailing with his first book, the psychology of Star Trek and where to find him online.

In the news segment we take a look at the newest Titan novel cover and talk about the club.
