On November 17th, 2012 a new show was added to the network that was dedicated to the books and comics of Star Trek and that would also allow the authors a place to come and talk about their work, giving fans behind-the-scenes access to the stories. With Strange New Worlds winner and Star Trek author Dayton Ward as the first show guest, Literary Treks boldly went.

In this very special episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by Bruce Gibson and Strange New Worlds contestant Tristan Riddell to talk about his DS9 story The Last Will Be First. Then as a special treat and for the first time ever, we present the audiobook version of his story to the world.
