David R. George III:
Revelation and Dust.
The Star Trek universe as you know it is about to change. Over
the past decade the prime universe has grown richly complex as
print 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 TNG, DS9, 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 DS9 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 DS9 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. Plus, in news, we take a close look inside Larry
Nemecek's Stellar Cartography.
