Have Andorian fight scenes lost their luster? Want an Orion fight scene instead? How about a Romulan troubled by war? 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 conclude our look at the first Alien Spotlight series with four more stories about Orions, Vulcans, Romulans, and Gorn. Where do you hide something when you have no pockets? How do you react when a Gorn wants to help you, not eat you? We find out.

In our news segment we discuss new blurbs for Una McCormack’s The Missing and Greg Cox’s Foul Deeds Will Rise, and find out more about Data’s role in Jeffrey Lang’s The Light Fantastic.
