This month on my podcast, "It Has Come To My Attention," I draw the attention of Star Trek fans to two other space / naval adventure properties that they might enjoy.

The Mote in God's Eye was written by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle and published in 1974. Robert Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read." It's a space navy, first contact adventure.

Patrick O'Brian's 20 Aubrey–Maturin novels center on the adventures of a Royal Navy captain and his friend, a ship's doctor, during the Napoleonic Wars. These age of sail books were called by the New York Times Book Review "the best historical novels ever written." And the film version, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, will especially delight fans of The Wrath of Khan.

Something new to add to my (re)reading list
I read The Mote in God's Eye several years ago, and I loved it to pieces. Now I need to reread it through the prism of Star Trek ...
