The unthinkable has happened: the red and blue wormholes have come together to signal the annihilation of the universe as we know it. However, in a pocket reality, the crew of Deep Space Nine must work to return to their station at one of two points in history. The first: The Day of Withdrawal, when the Cardassians left DS9 at the end of the occupation, and the second: the moment when the red wormhole destroyed the station. Can Sisko and his crew change history and possibly prevent Armageddon?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson discuss the conclusion to the Deep Space Nine: Millennium trilogy: Inferno by Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens. We talk about the crew's individual personal hells, a paradox-filled time-twisting storyline, some lingering mysteries in the story, Arla Ries's surprising arc, Sisko's role as the Emissary, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we talk about an upcoming Discovery comic from IDW: Captain Saru, set for release in February 2019.
