We’re pleased to announce episode 24 of our “Life After Trek” podcast featuring Dan Madsen. Dan is know for forming the first official Star Trek fan club, creating Star Trek Communicator Magazine, and running the official Lucasfilm Fan Club for nearly 20 years, just to name a few. Being a longtime fan of Star Trek, beginning with TOS syndication in the 70s, Dan started his jaunt into the fan club scene with a small ad in Starlog Magazine in 1979. The fan club grew with leaps and bounds until 1982 when he was approached by Paramount to head the first officially licensed Star Trek fan club. Dan has been a major force in Trekdom for over 30 years and has continued his work today with the extremely popular Her Universe clothing and collectibles company.

The Starfleet Escape PodCast started out in August of 2012 on the Four Eyed Radio Network. Every other week three Star Trek fans get together and discuss various topics in the Star Trek universe.
Hi-ya folks. Gather up around the fireplace and I’ll tell you a story about a young augment, tyranny and the repercussions from a giant ego through space and time. No I’m not talking about Lady Gaga; I’m talking about Khan, of course.
You may have heard of that little event in our neck of the woods called SXSW. Well, it seems Google Search Chief, Amit Singhal, has a vision for the future of search that he says will be much like the computer from Star Trek.
“You can walk up to a computer and say, hey, computer," Says Singhal.
A brand new teaser trailer for the upcoming J.J.-verse Star Trek Into Darkness was leaked to the web. Supposedly, this is the trailer that's being shown as a preview before the new Disney film Oz the Great and Powerful. The new teaser features a handful of as-of-yet-seen intense action shots from the film including Kirk & Spock in a small (shuttle? fighter?) ship chase and general spacesuit awesomeness.

The weekend following Valentine’s Day marked the return of the Grand Slam Sci-Fi Summit in Southern California after an absence from the convention circuit for a few years. The event had been a major affair in the sci-fi world, but especially with Star Trek, for nearly twenty years and had been prominently displayed in the Trekkies documentaries and on various media productions.
Despite attendance dropping due to the growing popularity of the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention and a move to different locations (first starting in Pasadena, then Burbank, next to LAX, and then back to Burbank again), the Grand Slam has had a loyal following and ended up having a more intimate feel than many of the other conventions of similar genres with thousands of attendees.
