Q and Trelane Comics.
Is Trelane a Q? Certainly this was never the intent when Paul Schneider penned the TOS episode “The Squire of Gothos.” But in the years since, the literary world of Star Trek has retconned the good general (retired), endowing him with the powers of the Continuum and a backstory to go with it. But a year before Peter David made Trelane a renegade Q in Q-Squared, Steven Wilson essentially merged him with the Continuum in a comic called “A Little Man-to-Man Talk.” In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones explore this DC comic along with Marvel’s 1998 “An Infinite Jest,” which brings the two omnipotent characters face-to-face. In news we check in on the cover art for Kirsten Beyer’s upcoming Voyager novel Protectors and we review the third part of The Khitomer Conflict comic from IDW.
