It seems like forever since we've sat down and recorded a standard Trek Geeks episode, and we're back with our wrap-up of the amazing 2016 Las Vegas Star Trek Convention!
We met so many amazing people during the convention, one of whom was one of our favorite podcasters: Norman Lao from Trek.FM and also the Fandom Podcast Network, where he hosts Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast!
Norm sits down to talk to us about his first-ever STLV and some of his cosplay! We'll talk about some of our favorite experiences, convention going, dressing the part, and even throw in a healthy dose of pop-culture references for good measure!
Plus, we'll play catch up on some of the things that have happened since our last pre-Vegas episode, we'll run through the latest Star Trek news from TrekNews.net, and we'll make a special announcement regarding a new podcast for you to enjoy in January 2017!!
We had a lot of fun recording this episode and we hope you'll enjoy it!
We can't thank FIVE YEAR MISSION enough. We are truly grateful to them for allowing us to use their music for every episode of Trek Geeks. You really should check them out--they're writing and recording one original song for each episode of the classic Star Trek series from the 1960's.
Beam on over to their website at FiveYearMission.net and check out all of their fantastic albums! You can hear them all: Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, The Trouble with Tribbles, and of course, the amazing Spock's Brain!
