Positively Trek 140: Book Club: Catalyst of SorrowsStar Trek: Mission Impossible!

A Star Trek story featuring intrigue, spycraft, and off-the-books missions… with a centenarian Uhura as the head of Starfleet Intelligence! It’s the perfect blend of Star Trek and Mission: Impossible you didn’t know you needed!

In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Dan and Bruce discuss The Lost Era: Catalyst of Sorrows by the incomparable Margaret Wander Bonanno. We talk about the homage paid to John le Carré in this novel, a galactic pandemic, Uhura’s job, an adventure in the Neutral Zone, a ton of familiar faces, the ending of the story, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
