The last time Jake Sisko was seen in the Deep Space Nine relaunch, he had bought a ship from Quark and was headed into the wormhole in an effort to fulfill a prophecy that seemed to indicate he would be reunited with his father. It would not be until six books later that we would have an answer to the question, "What happened to Jake?".
In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther talk about Rising Son. We discuss our first impressions, Opaka's escape, Jake's life in his father's shadow, how we live, free will, predestination, responsibility, life's purpose, planting the seeds for the future, and our ratings.
In our news segment, we talk about the way the Star Trek books hold up, judge a book by it's cover, and then celebrate the 100th episode by talking about some of the favorite books we've covered, interviews, and a sincere thank you to all of the listeners for their support as well as to the authors for being so generous with their time.
