The end of The Fall left the Star Trek universe in a little more hopeful place than it was when the series began. There is a new focus on exploration in the Federation and even with all that the characters have experienced there is still the drive to boldly go.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by author Una McCormack to talk about her latest book The Missing. She talks about following up The Fall, writing a “day in the life” of DS9, the fun of exploring the new station, writing the character of Pulaski, as well as featuring the women of Star Trek, deepening the Tzenkethi, the themes of preconceived notions about people and atonement, all while remaining us that DS9 is truly a home for the homeless.

In the news segment we discuss Mike Johnson’s interview on what coming up for the Star Trek Ongoing comic as well as some well known villains that may make an appearance soon.
