Star Trek: Is the New Series Still "Trek” For You?
“Dr. Trek,” author/interviewer/producer LARRY NEMECEK, beams back with us again from Los Angeles for a fresh look at Star Trek’s return to the small screen this year and how it stacks up to our patrons’ past favorite versions. After 15 “cinematic TV” episodes, Discovery has already been renewed for a second season by CBS All Access — and opinions are many. Did today's serialized “chapter” format for episodes, on a streaming service, deliver all the Star Trek elements of diversity, aspiration and futurism a large audience needed — or a new audience expected? Has reaction been divided by age, media preferences, or other easy boundaries ? Larry will once again offer visuals, and invite the audience to share their opinions along with his. He’ll also have copies of his own Trekland books, CDs, and Portal47.net info afterward (larrynemecek.com).
