Planning a trip to Qo’noS? Marrying into a warrior family? If so, you won’t want to miss this episode of Literary Treks in which we’re joined by Emmett Plant to learn how to speak Klingon. Alright, we won’t actually be learning many Klingon phrases—that’s what the book is for—but we will be learning how this new book, How to Speak Klingon: Essential Phrases for the Intergalactic Traveler, came to be and about the production of the audio elements. Along the way Emmett also talks about the state of Star Trek audiobooks in general, the challenges in producing them, and whether or not we might expect more audible Trek in our future.

In our news segment we look at updates on two novels: Rise of the Federation: A Choice of Futures by Christopher L. Bennett and From History’s Shadow by Dayton Ward. Cover art for both books has been unveiled along with extended synopses that give us a better picture of what to expect.
