The Motion Picture left Star Trek fans with as many questions as it answered and when the story picked up in The Wrath of Khan, a lot of them did not truly get dressed leaving the audience to wonder, what happened to the crew after Kirk said, “Out there….. that away.”

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss Christopher L. Bennett’s, Ex Machina. Well talk about what happens after The Motion Picture, the profound changes, the questions the book raises, the McCoy problem, fallout from TMP, true freedom, bad sales and our ratings.

In the news segment we have new clubs for upcoming, Voyager, Original Series and Enterprise books to discuss.
