In 2007 Pocket Books decided to honor the 20th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation with a six-part eBook series that bridged the gap between the destruction of the Enterprise-D in Generations and the next time we saw the crew on the big screen in First Contact. Penned by J. Steven York, Christina F. York, Phaedra M. Weldon, William Leisner, Terri Osborne, Robert Greenberger, and Keith R.A. DeCandido, these novellas tell the story of the Enterprise-E’s shakedown cruise.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones discuss the first book in the Slings and Arrows series, A Sea of Troubles, and find out what happens with Picard comes face-to-face with the Changeling threat during the lead-up to the Dominion War. We also learn more about Lt. Hawk and how he became part of the crew before he turned up at the helm in First Contact.

In our news segment we bring you two comic reviews as we share our thoughts on the John Byrne photo comic Strange New Worlds and go in-depth into IDW’s Khan #3.
