TREKnological Trailer
Captain’s Log … Stardate 99751.48 … Join two Star Trek loving dads/co-captains of the U.S.S. TREKnological, as we boldly go and lay in a course each week to watch and discuss all things Star Trek! Together, we’ll dock at Starbase Paramount+ for some much needed shore leave (it’s hard work taking care of toddlers!). There, we’ll ENGAGE with the latest Trek content that’s been teleported into the Alpha Quadrant! We’ll also be slingshotting around the Sun to travel back in time in order to bring you some fascinating discussions of Star Trek TV shows and films of the past as well! If you’re hard-working parents like us who love Star Trek, but are pressed for time, then beam aboard the U.S.S. TREKnological for all things Trek, in 30 minutes or less! And the best part? It won’t cost you any bars of gold-pressed latinum! Four out of five Borg drones agree: Resisting this podcast is futile! I’m Vactor (and Shoff’s here too!), and our Geek So To Speak Network podcast will wash your tribbles away! Perhaps today is a good day to SUBSCRIBE! Live long and prosper!
