Star Trek Comes To METAtropolis

You may have noticed a couple other interesting things about this week’s release of METAtropolis: Cascadia. The first being that the release is audio-only. (Which isn’t all that surprising, as this series has so far been audio-only. Why, just check out the initial METAtropolis and its paper cousin.) The second being that all of the stories in this anthology are being read by Star Trek veterans!

METAtropolis: Cascadia “focuses in on a futuristic Pacific Northwest that has transformed—politically, economically, and ecologically—into a new reality known as Cascadia. Conspiracies and secrets threaten the tenuous threads of society. The End of Days seems nearer than ever. And the legend of the mysterious Tygre Tygre looms large.”

The line-up of authors, stories, and accompanying Trek actors goes as follows:

  • “The Bull Dancers” by Jay Lake
    Narrated By: Rene Auberjonois (“Odo”)
  • “Water to Wine” by Mary Robinette Kowal
    Narrated By: Kate Mulgrew (“Capt. Kathryn Janeway”)
  • “Byways” by Tobias S. Buckell
    Narrated By: Wil Wheaton  (“Wesley Crusher”)
  • “Confessor” by Elizabeth Bear
    Narrated By: Gates McFadden (“Dr. Beverly Crusher”)
  • “Deodand” by Karl Schroeder
    Narrated By: Jonathan Frakes (“Cmdr. William Riker”)
  • “A Symmetry of Serpents and Doves” by Ken Scholes
    Narrated By: LeVar Burton (“Geordi La Forge”)

Full court press from the Crusher family! The microsite for the story project has videos from the actors and snippets, as well, as the above link. Happy listening!
