From the moment First Contact hit the screens and Geordi mentioned the Enterprise-E had been in space for a year, fans wondered what transpired that year. With huge events on DS9, fans knew the crew of the Enterprise had to be involved somehow. Luckily Treklit came to the rescue with the Sings and Arrows series.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunter are joined by author Keith DeCandido to talk about the last book in Slings and Arrows, Enterprises of Great Pitch and Movement as well as the series. We discuss the conclusion, the genesis of the series, choosing the writers, Keith’s installment, Sisko and Picard, tying it all together, favorite moments, Keith’s future in Treklit, his work outside Star Trek and where to find him online.

In the news we talk about a new book and cover to judge, The Wit and Wisdom of Star Trek and one more thing from Dayton Ward.
