Is assimilation your thing? How about a nice fight to the death with ice cleavers? Maybe you prefer a tall glass of kana? We all have our favorite alien races, and in 2007 IDW turned the spotlight on some of Star Trek’s most famous aliens with a series of comics that told stories unique to each.

In the episode of Literary Treks, Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones take you through three of these stories and discuss a Borg plot to assimilate every life form in the galaxy at birth, Andorra’s secessionist movement, and possibly Kira and Garak involved in some Cardassian plot… it’s kind of hard to tell.

In our news segment we judge Michael A. Martin’s Seasons of Light and Darkness by its cover, unveil yet another cover for IDW’s version of The City On the Edge of Forever, find out more about David Mack’s Section 31: Disavowed, and do a beauty pass of Cross Cult’s USS Voyager refit. Plus, we try to figure out if Batman is actually working for Section 31.
