Shield of the Gods. The Department of Temporal Investigations is responsible for maintaining the timeline, preventing galaxy-ending paradoxes, and stopping temporal criminals. Their track record for meeting these goals has been put in jeopardy by a criminal named Daiyar who intends to use an item stolen from the DTI's vault to change history, and it's up to the agents to put an end to her scheme. In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Bruce Gibson and Dan Gunther discuss the latest DTI e-novella, Shield of the Gods. We talk about Daiyar's scheme, character vs. plot, the Aegis Prime Directive, the Deltan concept of love, Ranjea's ultimate fate, the meaning of the title, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings. In the news, we mention the imminent releases of Eaglemoss's Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection volume 2 and Dayton Ward's Hidden Universe Travel Guide to The Klingon Empire.

I love this podcast. It covers Trek books and comics in an entertaining fashion. The guests (mostly Trek authors) are excellent as well.
