A warm Penguicon welcome to 2022 Guest of Honor Larry Nemecek, “Dr. Trek”!
Best known as a host, experience leader, writer, and author of the classic bestseller “Star Trek: Next Generation Companion,” Larry Nemecek moved into “Trekland” full-time 25 years ago in Los Angeles from his native Oklahoma.
These days, Larry as “Dr. Trek” hosts THE TREK FILES weekly podcast for Roddenberry, has launched his unique PORTAL 47 background deep-dive fan experience—“where no savvy fan has gone before”—and leads his own Trekland Treks day tours of Trek film locations around L.A. (when pandemics are not raging).
After hosting “Trekland Tuesdays LIVE” commentary and chat each week since 2017, Larry was seen across the 10-part “Center Seat” docuseries on History Channel as well as a host of other Trek documentaries over the years, including the DS9 and Voyager docs, Rod Roddenberry’s “Trek Nation” and the Susan Oliver bio-doc “The Green Girl.”
Fans also are still excited for his official “Star Trek: Stellar Cartography” map/book set from Amazon, while backgrounders love the first five “Trekland: On Speaker” themed editions on CD, culled from his hundreds of hours of remastered archival Trek back-in-the-day interviews.
The longtime former editor of official ST Communicator magazine and Fact Files is busy wrapping up “The Con of Wrath” true-event documentary project, based on Star Trek’s “most glorious failure” in Houston 1982.
Along with story credit for the “Prophecy” episode of Voyager and working as a producer at the original startrek.com , Larry still writes his “Fistful of Data” column for official Trek Magazine after 22 years, and appears frequently on podcasts, convention stages, and CBS Star Trek Blu-ray
documentaries and audio commentaries. Oh—and he’ll also be happy to tour you through the Will Rogers State Historic Park ranch house where he’s docent—and now member of the nonprofit Will Rogers Ranch Foundation
… or just preach the legacy of his Oklahoma Sooners football legends.
