Book Club: TNG: Warped by Mike McMahan

Book Club: TNG: Warped by Mike McMahan

Mike McMahan: you may know him as the creator of Star Trek: Lower Decks. But in 2015, before the idea of Lower Decks had made its way to the ear of CBS, he created an episode guide for the little-known, never talked-about 8th season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. All 26 episodes were covered, including the one where Riker’s pajamas attempt to kill him, and the one where Barclay can’t seem to survive a bet between Q and fellow Continuum member “California Steve.”

In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Dan Gunther and Bruce Gibson discuss Warped! An Engaging Guide to the Unaired 8th Season by Mike McMahan. We talk about the origins of the book, the format, the artwork, some of our favorite plots and moments from the various episodes, the book’s link to Lower Decks, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
