Listen to the show :

On Episode 2 of ReadingTrek, we take a dive into "Star Trek: The Next Generation: Grounded", by David Bischoff. We discuss autistic character choices, why Brent Spiner finally connected to his role as Data, and why this story wouldn't have worked on the screen.

Next week we'll have Part One of new Star Trek Discovery novel, "Drastic Measures", by Dayton Ward.
