Just in time for the release of Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many I had the opportunity to interview Michael A. Martin about the first STO tie-in, his work on the post finale Enterprise novels and his upcoming return to the Star Trek: Titan series for Unreality-SF.net.
You can read the full interview here.
|“The Needs of the Many isn’t a book about timelines or continuity. Nor does it present a blow-by-blow account of the Undine War that had such a profound effect on the lives of the various interviewees - Jake assumes his 25th Century audience doesn’t need any lessons in basic history. Instead, it’s a collection of slice-of-life accounts that reveals how each of Jake’s interview subjects was tested by the war. It’s a book about the unique sacrifices each person had to make during the conflict. It was this theme of sacrifice that inspired the book’s title.”|
