Defending the fabric of time itself from criminal elements, protecting the Federation from all manner of temporal distortions and time-related technologies, and ensuring that overzealous Starfleet officers don't muck about in time: it's just another day at the office for the agents of the Federation's Department of Temporal Investigations. But when soldiers of a foreign government attempt to steal dangerous temporal artifacts, it's up to the DTI to stop them at any cost!

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing, Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson talk about the new Department of Temporal Investigations ebook, Time Lock. We discuss the confusing nature of time in the story, technobabble, the character, dangerous power, wanting more and our ratings.

In the news we take a look at the premiere issue of the Waypoint comic and remind everyone that Prey: Hell’s Heart is out now!
