Trek Radio and the Captain’s Table are proud to present a special broadcast featuring critically-acclaimed science fiction author and screenwriter David Mack and the Music of Star Trek: Vanguard.

Recently David Mack had a vision to create an Internet broadcast highlighting the music that inspired him while he wrote the Star Trek: Vanguard novels. Captain’s Table hosts Timewarp and Nydra teamed up with David Mack to bring his vision for this special musical presentation to life on Trek Radio.

The following three-hour broadcast, aired April 23rd, 2012, provides a unique opportunity to peer inside the mind of the writer and embark on a musical journey of discovery as David Mack discusses how each song influenced the development of the story and characters in the Star Trek: Vanguard novels.

Trek Radio, Timewarp & Nydra, and Deyvid, would like to thank David Mack for joining us and sharing insights into his creative process.
