There is always a beginning and The Rise of the Federation series is the story of how a fledgling group of planets will become the shining beacon of hope known as the Federation we see in The Original Series and beyond.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther dive into the latest book by Christopher L. Bennett, Uncertain Logic. We talk about the surprise of learning there is another Enterprise in Starfleet, the politics in this period of Federation history, filling in the gaps, the Deltan story line, the power of devaluation, the battle for the Vulcan soul, the price of lies and our ratings.
