S.D. Perry set up the continuation of Deep Space Nine beautifully in the first part of the Avatar duology, but the real payoff comes in book two. On the final pages of the first half we were left with a cliffhanger that threatened to renew hostilities between the Federation and the Dominion.

In this episode of Literary Treks we conclude our look at the start of Pocket Books’ relaunch of DS9 and how S.D. Perry may have not only captured the pure essence of Deep Space Nine but actually elevated it.

In our news segment we look inside Mike and Denise Okuda’s new book On Board the U.S.S. Enterprise, get an update on Willain Leisner’s upcoming TOS novel The Shocks of Adversity, learn how to speak Klingon, and check in on the release schedule for IDW’s Star Trek Ongoing #19 and the Ongoing Volume 4 omnibus.
