On this bonus edition of A Strange New Pod, the ASNP Book Club sit down with New York Times bestselling author John Jackson Miller to talk about his latest novel, Star Trek Picard: Rogue Elements.

From Simon and Schuster:

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.

Join us as we talk to John about Rios' early journey as a smuggler for hire, how he managed to mesh so many different eras of Star Trek together, and how the upcoming CodaTrilogy of Treknovels reminds him of the Star WarsExpanded Universe becoming "Legends." 

All that and more on this special edition of ASNP.
