If you take a look at the 'features' section on CBS Action's website you might notice some familiar faces! It's us! We have contributed to their Treklog feature and we'd love to know what you think?

Did we accurately describe the major themes behind each series? Where are you on the journey? Were you there from the beginning? Were you part of the great assimilation of the 1990's? Or like our Trekkie In Training, part of the 21st century resurgence of Star Trek fandom? CBS Action is available on Sky 148, Virgin 192, Freeview 64 and freesat 137
