While Cullen was getting things ready this week for Wizard World Portland, John and Jerry decided to talk Star Trek. Sure, we could have discussed it ourselves and put out a decent podcast, but what if we talk to some guys who know Star Trek? Like really know the shows and the characters and the merchandising inside and out? So sit back and enjoy our conversation with Kansas City-based authors Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore.
Dayton and Kevin have partnered on multiple Star Trek novels over the years, as well as their projects. Whether it’s the original series, Next Generation, the Kelvin universe, or Discovery, these two authors have a lot of insight into what keeps Star Trek relevant after more than 50 years in the pop culture world.
This just so happens to coincide with the launch of Picard on CBS All Access. With a lot of familiar faces to reconnect with, people are preparing their Earl Grey tea and are commanding their computers to Make It So as they watch the all-new adventures of Jean-Luc Picard.

In addition to the Star Trek discussion, we have our weekly Pick 3 selections, sponsored by our good friends at Clint’s Comics. All three guys voted to “Make Mine Marvel” for books coming out on January 29.
