‘The Roddenberry Vault’ is a jaw-dropper! My vidchat with Roger, Denise & Mike Pt I

Quick! If you don’t have a copy yet of The Roddenberry Vault, the perfect cherry on top of this year’s 50th anniversary dessert… you can still likely order one for Christmas gift-giving! It actually sold out in 36 hours at Amazon last week, but has since been mercifully re-stocked—largely due to the huge fan word-of-mouth and, as you’ve seen by …

Welcome to the NEW Trekland and larrynemecek.com!

Once upon a time, the world changed. Internets rose, Big Boxes fell.  “Get yourself a blog and your own website,” they said, “but there is no manual. It’s being written as we speak.” And so the old larrynemecek.com website and HQ of all things “Trekland” was born on April 21, 2008. It served well…it was a beaut in its day… …

RIP Ron Thornton, CGI pioneer and fan media’s hero too

  I didn’t know Ron Thornton that well, although he was certainly kind and generous and supportive of me in my writing and projects. I may not even have any pics with him, back from the time of no cameras-on-pagers known as The Nineties. Following his passing Monday afternoon after a long illness, you can read much more by his …

After 20 years, “Tribble-ations” is still Trek‘s best fan film

November 4th is not only the day to say “Happy Will Rogers Birthday!”—yes, there is a physical as well as a philosophical link there—but this year it’s the 20th anniversary of DS9‘s delightfully and awesomely monument anniversary homage show, “Trials and Tribble-ations.” Now this is a valentine to fans. I mean, it’s pro-Trek’s own fan film, is what it is. …

Portal 47 Hosts Trek’s First Director in a Virtual “Open House”

My baby is one year old! Portal 47, the monthly insider deep-dive to more in-depth Trek, was launched a year ago this month—and we had a party to celebrate! Well, a virtual open house, actually: On Oct. 12, we hosted a special edition of one of our guest telebriefings. And in the spirit of #StarTrek50, it was a doozy: None …

A rare political move: Trek Against Trump takes a stand

Well, this is unprecedented. Nearly 100 names and faces who brought Gene Roddenberry’s hopeful, future universe to life over five decades are diving into Campaign 2016 with “Trek Against Trump.” From the original series right through to the Kelvin timeline films and even Discovery—before and behind the camera alike, and alongside too. And, I’m proud to say, me too. It’s …

STV: Happy 50th from Star Trek crews past

YES! Finally, new Trekland video—and a brand-new intro! But the 50th celebration has only just begun … for a whole year, yes? So here’s some faces and voices I’ve been holding back for the Happy 50th party—just the kind of behind-the-scenes insight that I love recording and revealing… from the TNG Companion where I met many of them, to our …

Portal 47: One year old — just now getting its space legs

Hard on the heels of Thursday’s #Happy50 #StarTrek50 celebrating… It’s hard to believe, but it was just one year ago that I sprung the official launch of PORTAL 47 on an unsuspecting Trekland…. where no savvy fan had gone before. And despite a couple of opening-night glitches as I scrambled to self-produce a combination talkshow/podcast/intro session, the Portal since then …

Happy Trek 50th! It’s only now I can be excited

Hey, it’s Sept. 8! The Official Big 5-0 is here, at last. Everyone and their alien dog is doing the Star Trek thing: mainstream news, bloggers, entire nations of state-owned media. So, just as I promised when I started this blog, I’ll take the personal route on this landmark day. And say, after a year of joining fans worldwide to …

STV: Vic Mignogna & Todd Haberkorn: Star Trek Continues’ Kirk & Spock cut-ups

Let me introduce you to two of the best voice actors and most popular guests on the anime convention circuit—as well as a couple of all-around performers, directors and even editors: Vic Mignogna and Todd Haberkorn. With all that, you’re catching them at Trekland because Vic is the driving force—as producer, director, co-writer and Captain James T. Kirk—behind Star Trek …
