Positively Trek 170: Book Club: Revenant with Special Guest Alex White!
"Tyrants that are smart burn sci-fi books, too."

A friend has gone missing, and it’s up to Jadzia Dax to get to the bottom of a mystery that will rock the foundations of all that the Trill hold dear. Secrets from Jadzia’s own past, long-buried, will force Trill society to confront some hard truths and give rise to a deadly adversary…

It’s not often that we get the chance to welcome a new voice in the field of Star Trek novelists, and we are privileged to be able to do so with renowned science fiction author Alex White! In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Dan and Bruce welcome Alex to the show to discuss their new novel, Deep Space Nine: Revenant. We talk about how Alex became a fan, their experience in writing science fiction and tie-ins, the plot of Revenant, Jadzia’s role, Kira’s mid-book exit, Bashir and Worf, “sympathy” for Joran, and much more, wrapping up with what Alex is working on now and how you can follow them online.
