Enterprising Individuals, Season 2, Episode 16: “The Corbomite Maneuver”
30 August 2017

We don’t always talk about “The Corbomite Maneuver,” but when we do, it’s on this episode! New York Times and USA Today bestselling author David R. George III joins the show to talk about the first non-pilot episode of Star Trek, and along the way, we discuss how Trek became Trek, the inclusiveness of Trek’s future, what it takes to command a starship, and the search for the unknown!

 

Plus we discuss the show’s humanistic principles in a military science-fiction setting, we share mutual love for a good countdown, we talk deus ex devices, and David gives us insight into the process of developing a Star Trek script, while I try to convince him that The Most Interesting Man in the World is in this episode!

Take all that, add Clint Howard and three fingers of tranya, pour into your ears, and enjoy!

Literary Treks 136: Temporal Mechanics Chess Game
22 January 2016

The Deep Space Nine relaunch had been building to a showdown with the Ascendants. The Soul Key left fans with a massive cliffhanger, but with Star Trek: Destiny bringing all the crews together, the Ascendants story line was dropped in order to align the DSN books with the rest of the 24th century. Fans have long wondered what transpired with the Ascendants and how it spurred major changes for many of the DSN characters. Luckily, the answers have finally arrived. 

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther are joined by author David R. George III to talk about his latest Deep Space Nine book, Ascendance. We discuss weaving the tapestry, research, what to tell and what not to tell, prophecies, character arcs, Sisko, faith and belief, working things in, what’s next, and where to find David online.

Literary TREKS 112: A BAJORAN COPERNICAN REVOLUTION
16 JULY 2015

When The Soul Key ended in 2009, Star Trek fans were left with a massive cliffhanger as Iliana Ghemor stood in front of the Ascendants and proclaimed, “ I am the Fire.” Unfortunately, the story of the Ascendants arc was lost as the DS9 books caught up with the rest of the 24th century in the Typhon Pact series—that is, until now. 

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther welcome author David R. George III back to discuss his latest Deep Space Nine novel, Sacraments of Fire, which begins the final arc of the Ascendants story. We talk about stitching together the DSN quilt, what goes where, the different faces of faith, Ro’s growth, a place for Sisko, the many plot threads, the new DS9, tidbits about the forthcoming Ascendance, and where to find David online.

literary treks 64: a sense of isolation
15 June 2014

Many fans know Demora Sulu merely as the daughter of Hikaru and as the helmsman of the Enterprise-B. We only catch a glimpse of her in Generations, but as the literary universe has evolved, we’ve come to know her through novels like The Captain’s Daughter and Serpents Among the Ruins. For David R. George III, Demora has been an important character and the relationship between her and Captain John Harriman has been central to his view of the Lost Era—the time period between 2293 and 2369. Returning to the Lost Era for the first time in nine years, David’s new novel brings us back to Demora, who is now captain of the Enterprise-B.

In this episode of Literary Treks, Dan Gunther of TrekLit Reviews sits in for Matthew as we’re joined by David to discuss the genesis of the novel, his goals in exploring the relationship between Demora, Hikaru, and Harriman, what it was like returning to the Lost Era after writing so much 24th-century political fatigue, the sense of isolation that pervades Demora’s life, and the sense of responsibility that friends and colleagues have for one another.

Literary Treks 36: An Archduke Ferdinand Moment
6 October 2013

The Star Trek universe as you know it is about to change. Over the past decade, the universe has grown richly complex as literary adventures have taken over where television left off. Now, in a new five-book series titled The Fall, some of Star Trek’s greatest authors are going to rock the Federation to its core with an adventure that takes place over a period of sixty days and involves The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Titan.

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Christopher Jones kick off The Fall with special guest David R. George III, whose DSN novel, Revelation and Dust, sets the stage for the series. We discuss the incredible new Starfleet-built Deep Space 9 station, how Doug Drexler, Andy Probert, and Douglas E. Graves helped shape the visual design, the continuation of Kira’s journey and the broader DSN story, the challenges of writing a book that builds upon so many past novels while making the story accessible to new readers, and how Revelation and Dust not only sets up The Fall, but also pays tribute to Deep Space Nine on its 20th anniversary.
