Positively Trek 167: Book Club: The Galactic Whirlpool
I wanna be the Royal High Minister Plenipotentiary in Total Command of the Universe!

We’re going back 41 years (!!!) in this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club! This week, hosts Bruce and Dan are reviewing the Bantam Star Trek novel The Galactic Whirlpool by “The Trouble with Tribbles” writer David Gerrold. We discuss the lost colony, Specks and the Enterprise historical library, Kevin Riley & Katwen, the “bug-spot event,” the MacMurray Empire, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
