Peter David is an extremely talented author, writing for many great franchises such as Star Trek, X-Men, Superman, Babylon 5, and many other worlds he created. Peter is also a long-time fan of science fiction, and has a great perspective on how fandom changed from the early days of conventions though today. In this episode, he and I have a great talk that includes the transition between Star Trek: TOS and Star Trek: TNG, and how the Vietnam War made for a different perspective between the two shows. We also reflect on rivalries between fandoms, how it’s often an illusion, but also ways in which those rivalries can be very real.
