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.

The long wait is finally over!

Star Trek Beyond debuted in theaters this past weekend and both Dan and Bill attended Thursday night IMAX 3D showings in their towns.

This week's episode contains nothing but spoilers, so if you haven't seen Star Trek Beyond yet, you should skip this episode for now.

After a discussion on the plot, we'll take a look at the aspects of Beyond that we really enjoyed, and those we didn't. We'll also examine whether this film reflects The Original Series, as well as where it falls in an impromptu stack ranking of all the Star Trek movies.

Plus, there's news out of San Diego Comic Con about the new Star Trek series coming to CBS All Access in January!

There's LOTS of new Star Trek in Episode 69, and we hope you'll join us!
