James Swallow: The Stuff of Dreams.
It all started years ago with an idea revolving around that unusual
spatial anomoly in Generations. It ended with the commissioning of
a Next Generation novella called The Stuff of Dreams. In this
episode of Literary Treks we're joined by James Swallow to talk
about his new story that centers on Captain Jean-Luc Picard and
goes a long way—in just 94 pages—toward fleshing out the inner
workings of one of Starfleet's greatest captains.
In our news segment we go inside DK's new Star Trek Visual
Dictionary for a hands-on review, speculate on IDW's upcoming film
sequel After Darkness, and review Star Trek Ongoing #19, the
backstory of Montgomery Scott.
