Trekland’s Larry Nemecek (aka Dr. Star Trek) has just released his second CD in the On Speaker series in which Nemecek has digitally preserved hours and hours of anecdotes and stories from Trek legends such as Michael Piller, Mark “Sarek” Lenard, Bob Justman, and more. All of the content is never-before-released material that has been sitting on cassette tapes in a box in some forgotten corner for decades. In the newly released VOL. 2: “ ‘All Good Things…’: Words and Deeds”, you’ll hear stories from Ron D. Moore, Brannon Braga, and others in their own voices in Spring 1994. Hit the jump for more and info on how to snag yourself this little piece of Star Trek history.
Volume 2, with even more Trek history
In Volume 1, Larry Nemecek, the universe’s renowned Star Trek authority, brought us never-before-released extended interviews with some of the people integral to Trek’s life. Well, Nemecek’s gone back to that dusty old box of cassette tapes and dug out even more material that hasn’t been heard for 20 years. He told TrekMovie in an exclusive quote:
After the debut disc was so popular, the hardest thing about this edition was coming up with a follow-up theme…but who doesn’t love TNG’s last small-screen hurrah, “All Good Things…”? I had forgotten, aside from shorthand notes squeezed into the TNG Companion and various articles, just how much forgotten detail and personal angst was wrapped up in that show—and just by the writers, returning head writer, and director!
These are, again, all being preserved off 20-year-old cassette tapes (thankfully), but Chris Jones of Stellar Debris/trek.fm podcasts does a great job tweaking them back to maximum life. And softening the clink of the Paramount Commissary behind Rick Kolbe!
Each volume sells for $21.99 (or save $4 when you buy both) and are available at the Trekland Blog or in person from Larry Nemecek at a convention.
Playing Bones, the Trekland Trunk, and a new Starfleet reference library
This has been a busy year for Larry Nemecek, who’s added playing Dr. Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy to his resume when he joined the cast of Star Trek Continues. The web series began shooting for it’s upcoming episode this week. For you Trek history buffs, Larry has also started a new facebook page, the Trekland Trunk, where he’ll be posting when new archives are up for sale. If you thought that wasn’t enough, Larry’s new book Star Trek Stellar Cartography: The Starfleet Reference Library is now available for pre-order from Amazon.
