TREKLAND: On Speaker
"Larry, I have listened to 'On Speaker' and it is something special. Thank you so much for putting this out. It would be a sin to lose this. I recommend this to anyone interested in Trek!"—Ronald B. Moore, Star Trek Visual Effects 1987-2005
The latest in our CD series
that opens up our decades of interviews,
now remastered for fans
First, the bad news:
For two decades, boxes and boxes of my cassette tapes of TREKLAND creator interviews have sat unused.
And worst of all, unheard—the vast majority not even transcribed and out in print.
The good news?
Thanks to the digital revolution, that’s all changing now. Hundreds of hours of Trek talk are being sorted, saved and finally shared.
That's why I’m so proud to present this CD series, TREKLAND: On Speaker—with a new edition debuted each year at the Vegas Star Trek convention since 2012. On each CD, you won’t get just sound bites or even a few sentences, as you expect even with DVD bonus features—but extended conversations with writers, producers, designers and all manner of crew, on-stage and off...from the days when memories were very fresh with the memory of their work.
VOL. 4: “Voyager's Pilot: Taking Care of 'Caretaker' ”
JUST RELEASED FOR 2015!
For our fourth edition, we mark 2015 as the 20th anniversary of the premiere of Voyager—and thus our latest big chunks of old analog cassette tapes made digitally remastered are all about "Taking Care of 'Caretaker' "(see front cover) ! For digging up the roots of the show that gave us Talaxians, EMHs and Seven of Nine from here to teh Delts Quadrant, you'll hear nearly an hour and 20 minutes from these long archival chats, never released before—with co-creator / exec producer and Janeway's virtual character mother JERI TAYLOR, plus production designer RICHARD JAMES, VFX producer DAN CURRY and the late, great director RICK KOLBE—with comments and tales you've never heard before… And, as always: these clips are long, leisurely, and ALL IN THEIR OWN VOICES, from WINTER 1994 and SPRING 1995, to be exact.
