“For every Julian Bashir that can be created, there’s a Khan Singh waiting in the wings.” Those are the words of Starfleet Rear Admiral Bennett, and they highlight why the Federation is skittish on genetic enhancement. But not everyone is so concerned about the risks—including Section 31.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones continue their look at the Deep Space Nine relaunch with the third book in the series, Abyss. A worthy continuation of Avatar’s aftermath, Abyss challenges Bashir’s ideas of who he is as well as our ideas of right, wrong, and strength of faith.

In our news segment we get our first look at the new Deep Space 9 station with the new cover art for Revelation and Dust, find a few new clues about the McCoy-centric Seasons of Light and Darkness, hear Alan Dean Foster’s thought on novelizing Star Trek Into Darkness, find out what Mike Johnson has planned for After Darkness, see The Best of Klingons, and learn about a John Harrison miniseries.
