Author, interviewer, host, archivist, producer, voiceover, actor… and fan: LARRY NEMECEK has a background in news and theatre, but it is “Trekland” where he’s worked for nearly 25 years. A renowned Star Trek authority, Larry is the author of the bestselling classic Star Trek The Next Generation Companion, and a regular convention guest worldwide, often referred to as “Dr. Trek.”
Larry now brings his Trek knowledge, resources, and archives to the ultimate deep-dive experience for Trek fans: PORTAL 47.
ON STAGE / ON CAMERA
Larry is a regular host and guest at conventions around the world, and a favorite on podcasts, too. Every Tuesday you can hear him and a guest on his own Roddenberry Podcast Network show The Trek Files, and then watch at 1 pm Pacific for Trekland Tuesdays LIVE on Facebook. There’s also official DVD/Blu-ray features, documentaries, and TV and radio whenever Trek news breaks. Thousands of fans also know him as the original Dr. McCoy in the award-winning Internet hit Star Trek Continues.
A trained journalist, Larry went from daily news to best-selling author of the classic Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion, and the Star Trek: Stellar Cartography map/book set. He served as managing editor of the fan-favorite official magazine Star Trek Communicator, was a senior staffer for the entire original Fact Files run, and was an editor/producer for the original startrek.com. His regular column for Star Trek Magazine celebrated both its 100th entry and 20th anniversary in November 2017.
ONLINE: Interviews & Photos
Larry continues to produce video interviews with Trek creative pros and fans for his “Switching to Visual” online series. His “On Speaker” audio series draws from hundreds of hours of long-form archival interviews since the late ‘80, curated and digitally remastered onto CD. Many of them turn up as guests for the Portal 47 community as well. As a photographer, Larry has also captured decades of original images of Star Trek moments both pro and fan, a close witness especially during the TV revival boom of the later Next Generation era through Enterprise.
PRODUCING / CONSULTING
The Con of Wrath is Larry’s first film project, a documentary preserving the tale of “Star Trek’s most glorious failure”: the 1982 Ultimate Fantasy arena show debacle. His consulting credits include the storied Star Trek: The Experience in Las Vegas and other Star Trek exhibitions and science tours. He was creative consultant for Webbie Award-winning Star Trek Continues series online, and speaks for the non-profit Enterprise in Space global education/orbiter program.
