Scott Mantz: Star Trek Fotonovels. Before VCRs, DVRs and Netflix, viewers had to watch Star Trek as it appeared on TV. There were no options to record. You couldn't buy the episodes on Blu-ray or download them online. To relive favorite episodes, fans were at the mercy of watching reruns on their local TV station. The only way to enjoy certain episodes over and over again on your own time was to open a book filled with full-color photographs and dialogue directly from the series. In this...

Ghost Ship. On Literary Treks, we have reviewed the first original novel of each of the Star Trek series. Now it's time for our attention to turn to The Next Generation, and a very unique novel that shows us a take on TNG that was written with very little of the actual show to work with. Is the story representative of what we would come to know from the crew of the Enterprise-D, or is it a pale reflection that is nearly unrecognizable? In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce...
