3: Inspired by an Old M*A*S*H Episode


Keith R. A. DeCandido.

Since the release of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers e-book Fatal Error in 2000, Keith R.A. DeCandido has become one of the most influential authors in the Star Trek literary universe. His hand can especially be seen in the development of the Klingons through the I.K.S Gorkon novels, the bridging of Insurrection and Nemesis in A Time for War, A Time for Peace, and in fleshing out the Federation political system in Articles of the Federation. In this episode of Literary Treks we’re joined by DeCandido to discuss how he got involved in writing the Star Trek expanded universe, his love of Hikaru Sulu, and even how the Klingons got their ridges back.

In our news segment we cover the upcoming Star Trek Visual Dictionary from Dorling Kindersley, Mike and Denise Okuda’s Onboard the Enterprise-D reference book, a new five-book series in development titled The Fall, James Swallow’s The Stuff of Dreams, Dayton Ward’s From History’s Shadow, a complete John Byrne comic collection, and Brannon Braga’s HIVE.
