Standard Orbit: A Star Trek Original Series Podcast

Standard Orbit 164: The Con of Wrath

Ultimate Fantasy 1982
   
Dr. Trek himself, Larry Nemecek joins Zach and Ken as we discuss his forthcoming documentary The Con of Wrath as well as Star Trek conventions then and now.
 
Long time Star Trek writer, author, publisher, and historian; Larry Nemecek talks about his first documentary about the legendary 1982 Houston Star Trek convention that devolved into quite the fiasco. He interviews several of the cast and production crew who were involved including the last interview ever given by the late Harve Bennett.
   
What would a new version Standard Orbit be without our famous tangents? We review the size and origins of Star Trek conventions right up to the current day. Prepare yourselves for the influx of Trek fandom we receive when Dr. Trek explores this universe like no else.
