    41. Interview: John Jackson Miller on Star Trek: Picard - Rogue Elements

    Welcome back to MAKE IT SO, a Star Trek: Picard podcast and to a special run of supplementary episodes over the coming months.

    In this episode, host Luke Winch talks to New York Times bestselling author John Jackson Miller about his new Star Trek: Picard tie-in novel, Rogue Elements.

    “Starfleet was everything for Cristóbal Rios—until one horrible, inexplicable day when it all went wrong. Aimless and adrift, he grasps at a chance for a future as an independent freighter captain in an area betrayed by the Federation, the border region with the former Romulan Empire. His greatest desire: to be left alone.

    But solitude isn’t in the cards for the captain of La Sirena, who falls into debt to a roving gang of hoodlums from a planet whose society is based on Prohibition-era Earth. Teamed against his will with Ledger, his conniving overseer, Rios begins an odyssey that brings him into conflict with outlaws and fortune seekers, with power brokers and relic hunters across the stars.

    Exotic loves and locales await—as well as dangers galore—and Rios learns the hard way that good crewmembers are hard to find, even when you can create your own. And while his meeting with Jean-Luc Picard is years away, Rios finds himself drawing on the Starfleet legend’s experiences when he discovers a mystery that began on one of the galaxy’s most important days…”

    We discuss the novel, his writing process, touch on characters and themes, before answering some listener questions.

Entertaining, Detailed and Fair

Brilliant podcast for Trekkies in a space awash with poor alternatives. If you’re at all interested in Trek this is worth a go. I only wish others put so much effort in their commentaries, appraisals and investigations. Good, informed conversations without the shrill edge that often accompanies topics blessed with a strong, opinionated fanbase.

Fantastic Podcast

I was looking forward to Picard so much and I love this podcast to accompany it. I find myself looking forward to the deep and expert analysis it offers almost as much as I look forward to the next episode of Picard!
