The publication of David Mack’s Storming Heaven in March 2012 marked the end of the Vanguard saga—or so we thought. As it turns out there’s a little more to the story. It comes in the form of what author Dayton Ward calls “a coda”—just a little something extra for fans of this series that is set in the TOS time period. In this, the premiere episode of our books and comics show, we’re joined by Dayton to discuss how this novella, In Tempest’s Wake, came about. In the process we also find out more about the inspiration of the Vanguard series itself, Dayton’s desire to write Captain Proton stories, and whether or not there’s a smoking jacket in Dayton’s closet.

In our news segment we cover upcoming releases in the literary world including Christopher L. Bennett’s continuation of the Romulan War story for the Enterprise line, David Mack’s second installment in Cold Equations: Silent Weapons, and we look at three upcoming releases from IDW on the comic front: Countdown to Darkness, Star Trek Ongoing #15, and Brannon Braga’s Hive #3.
