This week Vernon joins David to discuss Visual Effects throughout the years in Star Trek and how Computer Graphics (CG) have influenced story telling. Is it a good thing or a bad thing?

This week we delve into the Star Trek fandom and nerdom. Did Star Trek write the book on this level of fandom and why can we so passionate about Trek? We are pleased to be joined by Star Trek author, actor, editor, archivist, consultant, interviewer, producer and good friend, Larry Nemecek. There aren't many people that know this much about our beloved Star Trek so it's a treat to be able to sit down and pick Larry's unusually keen, Spcok sized brain.
Here are some places to keep up with Larry.

What is the next, next generation of Star Trek going to be? A gig, deep, Game of Thrones style show with violence and thirty characters that is hard to follow, a kids show with a talking prairie dog or a reality show about a bunch of fans making a fan film? Should Star Trek take a break and be pulled for a few years? All of these ideas sound pretty frightening, but as Trek fans we are going to have to take the risk at some point.
