Vastly outnumbered and outgunned by the relentless Borg advance, the United Federation of Planets faces its final hours. Captain Erika Hernandez, formerly of the Columbia, may be all that stands in the path of the insatiable hunger of the Borg Queen for the destruction of the Federation. She and the mysterious Caeliar, with their unlikely link to the Borg, may hold the secret to ending the threat from the Collective once and for all. But will victory come in time for the people of the Federation?

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther are joined by the author of the Destiny trilogy, David Mack, to discuss the final book, Lost Souls, and the trilogy as a whole. We talk about the genesis of this epic story, the various character issues that are confronted, Picard's link to the Borg and how it has affected him these many years, Erika Hernandez's part in the story, hope vs. fear, the origin of the Borg Collective, the legacy of Star Trek: Destiny, and wrap up with where David can be found online and what he has coming out in the next year.

At the top of the show, we respond to feedback from The Babel Conference for Literary Treks 287: Fear Usually Leads to Chaos.
