Following the multiple crises of the past year, the Enterprise crew has nearly been vindicated; all that stands in their way is an inspection by Starfleet. Meanwhile, however, the Klingon Emperor has gone missing, Klingon terrorists have attacked the Federation Embassy on Qo'noS, and a surprise Federation presidential election has threatened to turn nasty. After nine books and nearly 3000 pages, the A Time To series is coming to an end!

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson are joined by renowned Trek author Keith R.A. DeCandido to talk about his novel A Time for War, A Time for Peace, the final book in the A Time To series. We discuss the series as a whole, Die Hard at the Federation embassy, Worf's son Alexander, Nan Bacco, the politics of the Federation, linking this story to Star Trek Nemesis, the theme of moving on, and wrap up by discussing what's coming up from Keith as well as where you can find him online.

At the top of the show, we review issue 5 of the TNG: Terra Incognita comic miniseries and respond to your Babel Conference feedback about Literary Treks 250: Tom Clancy Without Technobabble.
