Superheroes in Star Trek? Star Trek has attempted a number of ambitious crossovers in the comic world in recent years. The universes of Doctor Who, Planet of the Apes, and Green Lantern have all been visited by our intrepid Starfleet heroes. These are always a fun diversion from the main storylines of the comics, giving a whole new meaning to exploring “strange new worlds.”

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by Legion hero Bruce Gibson to talk about Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes Vol. 1. We discuss our familiarity with the Legion of Superheroes, bridging the universes, immortal issues, trapped in a purple orb, characterization, art and our ratings.

In the news segment we look inside the new travel guide to Vulcan and discuss the latest issues of New Visions and Manifest Destiny.
