Episode 18: Star Trek The Original Series and the Science Fiction New Wave

In this episode Graham, Terry and Derek discuss the New Wave of Science Fiction in the 1960s and its relationship with Star Trek. The centrepiece of our topic is on the seminal anthology of short stories and novellas called Dangerous Visions, edited by Harlan Ellison and with contributions by fellow Star Trek alums Robert Bloch, Theodore Sturgeon and Norman Spinrad.

The conversation blossoms into other aspects of the New Wave and its progenitors in other media including the Marvel and DC Universes.
