Trek Geeks - A Star Trek Podcast is a casual discussion on Star Trek between two friends that have known each other for 20 years.

Each week, Dan Davidson and Bill Smith will highlight various Star Trek topics covering The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and well as the new feature films and independently produced shows! In addition, they'll stump one another with trivia and have conversations with various contributors and celebrities throughout the Star Trek Universe.

This week, Bill and Dan are joined by their good friend, Vic Mignogna from Star Trek Continues!

Vic comes by to talk about the latest crowdfunding campaign for his award-winning series, "To Boldly Indiegogo!" Over the next two months, STC hopes to raise $350,000 which will help them finish their seventh episode, as well as provide funding for three more installments!

In addition, we'll talk about the state of fan films in the wake of litigation taken by CBS and how that may affect the crowdfunding landscape. We'll also chat about "The White Iris," the perks for the current crowdfunding campaign, and we'll have a couple of questions from our Camp Khitomer group on Facebook! He'll even have an exclusive tidbit for our Trek Geeks listeners regarding their upcoming sixth episode, "Come Not Between the Dragons!"

Plus, we'll cover some Star Trek news including:

  • Two blockbuster guests announced for STLV in August
  • Dan's guest appearance on The Tricorder Transmissions' Shore Leave Podcast

PARENTAL ADVISORY: This week's episode has some serious conversation around how Star Trek has actually helped prevent suicide. Some of the discussion may be intense for younger listeners.
