Portal 47 is now up and running and sounds amazing! It comes across as a virtual convention. If anyone has been to one of Larry’s talks or stall at a convention you will know he is a wealth of knowledge with memories, archives and friends from all series.
“Portal 47 may not be for all Trek fans but if you crave a new way to get a virtual backstage pass and hear from new voices of people who were there, like a min-con package all year long no matter where you live… Then beam aboard and deep-dive through the Portal with us!” – Larry Nemecek
But why wait to go to a convention to get the chance to just glimpse? Instead Larry offers Portal 47 as an immersive experience where he shares his knowledge, treasure trove, questions and answers and even chats with other Trek guests.
So what do you get? Taken from Larry’s press release:
EVERY MONTH we’ll meet at virtual Portal 47 for your access pass:
• My live, one-hour group telebriefing interview with a real-life Trek veteran from the series, movies and more, with your questions…
…and the recoding afterwards.
• A live, one-hour group roundtable “Ask Dr. Trek” telebriefing with me —on a topic, or your Q/As; decide what you want …
… and the recording afterwards.
• Open the vault: Exclusive Archive Access via one rare or exclusive audio, document and/or image file to download monthly. That object may well be the opening spark for our ADT Roundtables!
• Three-day early advance access to all new guest vidchats and other undated posts at my TREKLAND blog.
• Exclusive access to our new Portal 47 closed community on Facebook, just for our Portal Passers… where we can talk further or set up new areas for our various deep-dives.
•15% DISCOUNT once a month on your winning bid at my Trekland Trunk events .. or on my own future merchandise. (Hmmm.. I guess that means… Portal 47 cards?)
• AND YES, EVEN LIVE:
• An ANNUAL Portal 47 meetup drink and munchies at Vegas Trek, Comic-Con SanDiego, or a local con near you where I am a guest. Even if it’s just the two of us! (Trekkie Girls Hint: Larry is already signed up to at least 2 UK conventions in 2016)
• PLUS a 20% DISCOUNT on my new, one-day personal TREKLAND TOURS of choices off a menu of Trek film site locations, when you are in LA! (To be announced this winter)
We asked Larry what he has planned in the near future and there’s even more reason to sign up, If you join in November you’ll get an actual call sheet from DS9, Voyager or Enterprise!
Larry is also planning to bring in European timezone friendly calls. He just needs another 6 European based members to join the portal.
Pretty exciting eh!? There are various membership options and with the exchange rate in our favour (for us Brits), it works out cheaper than a trip to the cinema. To sign up, visit Portal 47 or perhaps give membership as a gift to a friend? *hint hint*!
