The Trek Files – A brand new Roddenberry Star Trek Podcast hosted by Larry Nemecek aka “Dr Trek” begins TODAY!
If you have ever seen Larry at a convention or the material he shares online you’ll see he is a living memory-alpha for all things Star Trek. And this is exactly what he’ll be bringing to the weekly podcast.
What we love about it:
- It’s perfect for the ‘deep divers’. Fans who are thirsty for more knowledge and obscure facts.
- Fantastic guests. We can’t wait for the D.C Fontana episode.
- The title is genius.
- Only 15 minutes. We miss out on many great podcasts because there simply isn’t the time to listen. This gets straight to the point.
Here’s what Larry and Rod have to say:
Going where no Star Trek podcast has gone before, “The Trek Files” debuts Jan. 23 as a weekly “look” deep into the mostly unseen archives of Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, hosted by Larry “Dr. Trek” Nemecek on the Roddenberry Podcast Network.
“Even with all the Star Trek “archiving” going on now, there are so many papers and memos in my dad’s archives that still have not seen the light of day,” said Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry, executive producer on the new program, an EP on “Star Trek: Discovery” from CBS All Access, and family overseer of his father’s legacy. “I’m so excited to get into these plans, notes, and letters from him and those he worked with—and share them now for all to see. And who better to lead this look at these people and their times in the right context than “Dr. Trek,” Larry Nemecek?”
Putting in multiple appearances in the first round of guests are:
— John Champion, series co-producer and co-host of the network’s flagship Mission Log podcast;
—Dave Rossi, associate producer on Enterprise and the original Star Trek Remastered project, and a longtime assistant to former Trek EP Rick Berman; and
—Dorothy “D.C.” Fontana, legendary story editor for the original series, story editor/associate producer for The Animated Series, TNG associate producer and writer of its pilot episode—and creator of so much original Spock/Vulcan background.
