The Original Series tells the story of the Enterprise’s first five-year mission under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. But where did that mission really begin and where did it really end?

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones find out as they overcome a case of arachnophobia to join Kirk’s crew on a trip to Archernar IV. Filling in many of the blanks left by the premature end of TOS, IDW’s Mission’s End comic series sets Kirk, Spock, and McCoy on the paths that lead to where we see them in The Motion Picture.

In our news segment we learn about The Klingon Art of War, tell you what you need to read in order to jump into Revelation and Dust and the start of The Fall, and take a look at Madeira’s Star Trek motion comic in action. Plus, we play a game of Klingonity, drink up the autumn beers, and recount the history of tart fighting.
