A powerful force has been unleashed on an unsuspecting galaxy: a dangerous being who once tested the might of the entire Q Continuum. Now, it's up to Picard and his crew, along with Q and his family, to thwart this enemy and keep the galaxy as we know it from complete and utter destruction.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther are again joined by The Edge and Earl Grey host Amy Nelson to talk about the final novel in the Q Continuum trilogy, Q-Strike by Greg Cox. We discuss the plot of the novel, a sad end to a family crisis, the Q family dynamic, the ending of the novel, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings for both this novel and the Q Continuum trilogy as a whole.

In the news segment, we review two comics: the final issue of the Waypoint series, and issue #3 of the Mirror Broken miniseries.
