If you’ve been reading the post-Nemesis world of Star Trek, you know that Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher are married. And we mean for real—none of that “All Good Things…” alternate future stuff. But the wedding itself has gone missing as the story has unfolded. Just what happened on their wedding night? It seems Worf and Geordi really want to know, and in Rudy Josephs’s new eNovella Picard and Beverly fill them in on all the details.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones take you through Q Are Cordially Uninvited, the questionable framework, the intriguing adventure that spans time and space, why Admiral Laneway’s logs are apparently required reading in the Picards’ bed, and try to figure out just how the brown dachshund plays into the story.

In our news segment we preview Star Trek Ongoing 41, which will drop in January 2015, and field some listener questions about the Doctor Who-TNG crossover and the Enterprise novels.
