Literary Treks 26: Cardassia Is In the Caribbean

Larry Nemecek’s Stellar Cartography.

It’s been more than a decade since the last update to the Star Charts reference book, but thanks to Larry Nemecek and 47North fans will soon be able to get around the galaxy more efficiently than ever. In this episode of Literary Treks, Christopher Jones is joined by Larry to learn about the genesis of his new book Star Trek: Stellar Cartography, the process of creating it, and how Larry’s career in mapping stars dates back to the 1980s. We also make sense of the Delphic Expanse and choreograph the Dominion War.

In our news segment we find out what Jeff Mariotte has to say about his forthcoming TOS novel Serpents In the Garden, what hints Greg Cox has dropped about No Time Like the Past, and IDW’s latest Ongoing omnibus, Star Trek Volume 5, which collects Ongoing 17 through 20.
