What if our actions are not our own? What if all of us are merely pawns in a universe-spanning game, controlled by vastly older races with agendas and motivations that remain obscured? How would we know? And, most importantly, how would the mighty Captain Kirk deal with them?
In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson talk about the Shatnerverse novel Preserver. We discuss the nature of the Preservers, fate versus free will, duplicate Earths, secret groups within the Federation, the two Kirks, Teilani, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
In the news segment, we talk about Star Trek comic news from SDCC and review issue #10 of Boldly Go.
