Are you writing the kind of mystery you like to solve? Can you solve it the way it’s written? If you can’t, then I guarantee your readers won’t be able to. In this episode, I talk about how to write good mysteries.
…Rewrites Star Trek in the 90s
The 1990s were the Golden Age of Star Trek. Three different series and a slew of movies had all the Trekkies on top of the world. But, not to be too greedy about it, I think we could have had a lot more. Here’s what I would have added and amended about Star Trek in the 90s.
…About Money in Star Trek
What would it be like living in the world of Star Trek where you don’t have to earn money to live? Would it really be a world without despair?
…About Mature Content in Star Trek
Swearing and sex and violence have always been part of Star Trek, and they always will be, whether we like it or not. (Content warning: I’ll be swearing in this podcast. A lot.)
…About Drugs in Star Trek
You may think Star Trek has always taken a hard line against drugs of any kind, but the truth isn’t that simple.
…About Comedy in Star Trek
“Lower Decks” is the first legitimate Star Trek comedy; but comedy has always been part of Star Trek.
…About Representation in Star Trek
The best thing Star Trek can do to fight discrimination is the same thing it’s always done.
…About Consistency in Star Trek
Over the past 54 years, only one thing has remained consistent in Star Trek: Its message.
…Recommends Movies and TV (Condorman, Enemy Mine, Good Omens, Avenue 5, and more)
