My Trek-Related Podcast Segments: Trek and Arthuriana, Native America, and Crossover Genius

Because I'm bursting with Star Trek love today on the franchise's 50th birthday, and just in case you're looking for some free Star Trek discussion, I thought I'd repost these Trek-related "Looking Back in Genre History" StarShipSofa podcast segments of mine. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

First, my tribute to the weird and wonderful multi-crossover Ishmael by Barbara Hambly, a most unusual Star Trek novel, and one of my very favorite ones: here it is!

Second, inspired by my essay "The Sword in the Starship: Arthuriana in Four Incarnations of Star Trek" (published in Winedark Sea), here is my two-part discussion of Arthuriana and Star Trek.
- Part 1
- Part 2

Third, inspired by my essay "If This Is the (Final) Frontier, Where Are the Natives?" (published in Star Trek and History), here is my three-part discussion of Native America and Star Trek.
- Part 1
- Part 2
- Part 3

Thanks for letting me share these with you.

And last, just for nostalgia and laughs, here is the most fangirlish photo I think I have. This is me with the wonderful Star Trek: Deep Space Nine "baddie" triumvirate of Jeffrey Combs (Weyoun), Casey Biggs (Damar), and Marc Alaimo (Gul Dukat). That was a very fun day!
