The TOS movie era is a period of Star Trek history rife with story possibilities. Kirk’s crew aboard the Enterprise-A has been through a lot together, and that experience has molded them into some of Starfleet’s most valuable officers. Imagine if a television series had been set in this period. The episodes of that imaginary series might have been very much like the e-novella we are discussing this week.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss the newest enovella Miasma. We talk about it feeling like an episode, the setting, growth for the characters, Spock and Saavik, logic vs. compassion and our ratings.

In the news we take a look at Ongoing #54.
