Literary Treks 195: Big Q, Big Q, and little q

The Next Generation #47
The Q Continuum, Book 1 of 3

Q-Space by Greg Cox


When Q appears on the bridge of the Enterprise-E to stop a scientific experiment, Picard is understandably annoyed. Defying Q, the Enterprise presses on in its attempt to breach the galactic barrier that surrounds the Milky Way. However, they may be in over their heads as cosmic forces collide that may spell doom for the crew of the Enterprise and the rest of the galaxy!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are joined by Earl Grey's Amy Nelson to discuss the first book in the Q Continuum trilogy, Q-Space by Greg Cox. We talk about the Enterprise's mission to the galactic barrier, Q's vulnerability, the cliffhanger ending of the novel, some fun bits in the story, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.

In the news segment, we discuss the recently announced release date for David Mack's Star Trek: Discovery: Desperate Hours, and we review the latest comic, issue #2 of Mirror Broken.
