Show notes for the episode!

Welcome to the third iteration of the StarfleetComms Podcast as promised. Unshackled from talking about one game only or indeed being a purely gaming related podcast our scope has widened to include all things science fiction. However we remain somewhat true to our roots for this episode, staying within familiar territory by discussing our recent experience at Fantasticon (Science Fiction and Fantasy Con in Hull, which was awesome) and the newly confirmed date for Elite Meet which is a social gathering for players of Elite and their friends. We then move on to science fiction book reviews, namely The First Exoplanet by TJ Sedgewick and Neuromancer by William Gibson then discuss some TV news before rounding off with a return to the writing scene and a brief mention for the Festival of Drabbles ran by Michael Brookes.
