Keith looks back on a series he co-created and edited for Simon and Shuster Publishing - the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineering series. He talks about the characters, the stories, and the eventual demise of the series.
S.C.E. is a spinoff series from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, taking place primarily in the time period immediately following the end of the latter series.
The stories mainly concern a special Starfleet division called the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, stationed aboard the Saber class starship, U.S.S. da Vinci (NCC-81623).

Keith returns with a double length entry that we'll count as two episodes. To celebrate, he reads his entry in the recently released anthology, Liar, Liar.
Lying is essential to good story-telling. Daily, we writers sit at their computers--or Underwoods or legal pads--and write down a bunch of untruths, piling one on top of another, page after page. We compound them, massage them, edit them, spin them, until we're satisfied that, despite how outlandish or other-worldly these lies are, you the reader will swallow them. (From Sandra Brown's introduction to LIAR LIAR) This gripping new anthology offers a baker's dozen tales of deceit by some of the finest liars in the business. The stories vary in setting, genre, style and tone, but they share a common theme: Each is based on a lie. Even better: Part of the proceeds from sales of this anthology will go to literacy organizations. And that's no lie.
