(WARNING: This episode includes SPOILERS for STAR TREK: DISCOVERY - DRASTIC MEASURES, and DISCOVERY SEASON ONE.)
Three members of our regular panel of STAR TREK fans — Chris Clow (Movies.com, Comics on Consoles), Rachael Clow (Biology PhD candidate), and Cicero Holmes (Spawn On Me Cast) — are joined by a very special guest!
DAYTON WARD, STAR TREK expanded universe author of such titles as FROM HISTORY'S SHADOW and DISCOVERY: DRASTIC MEASURES (the subject of DISCOVERY DEBRIEF Episode 20), joins our panel for a wide-ranging conversation concerning everything from how he broke into writing for the franchise, his ideas on how to tell stories within the sandbox of STAR TREK canon, how his time in the United States Marine Corps influences the way he sees Starfleet and the Federation, his favorite episodes and movies, and inside information on what it was like to write a novel tying into STAR TREK's latest TV series!
Be sure to listen into this fascinating discussion, including details like Ward having to write for characters that the show established that audiences never ACTUALLY met, along with how firm the continuity of these works really are in the world of the new series, along with other great insights into the STAR TREK universe!
