Dave Baker, Writer of IDW Comics' "Star Trek Voyager: Seven's Reckoning"
Comics and Star Trek have a long history together, one that continues to this day. Nearly every major comic company has held the license, from Marvel, DC, Malibu Comics, and today it resides under IDW Publishing. In this episode of "Trek Untold," we speak with the writer for the most recent Trek mini-series coming out that just came out this week, Dave Baker.
Dave is the writer of "Star Trek Voyager: Seven's Reckoning," drawn by Angel Hernandez and colored by Ronda Pattison. We discuss his history of comics, the road he took to become a professional writer, and his odd history of becoming a Star Trek fan. Baker talks us through his latest Trek comic, which is all about Seven of Nine, writing dialogue for familiar characters like Captain Janeway and Tuvok, creating new alien races, and working with CBS to have the comic approved. We also spend some time discussing his work for the "Star Trek Waypoint Special" in 2018, which features a story he wrote that was drawn by Nicole Goux.
Dave also tells us about some of his other comic work and an upcoming project you may be interested in, as well as some tips for how to break into the comic industry.
As a side note, this episode contains some language that may be harsh for some listeners; viewer discretion is advised.
