More than eight months after it made its debut on the Science cable channel, “Trek Nation” is once again available — and you don’t have to be at San Diego Comic-Con to get it.
The documentary, hosted by Eugene W. Roddenberry Jr. as part of his exploration into Trek fandom as well as the work of his father, the late “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry, is now available on a number of platforms. They include Apple iTunes, Xbox Live, Vudu and YouTube.
First started in 2003, Roddenberry traveled the world to talk to various Star Trek fans, trying to find out the heart of what makes this franchise tick. He not only talked to the biggest Trekkies, but hit celebrities as well, including George Lucas, Stan Lee, Seth MacFarlane and others.
If that weren’t enough, “Trek Nation” will be part of a special screening at Comic-Con that will also include another Roddenberry Entertainment production, the 360-degree film “White Room: 02B3.” The screening, which is already sold out, will take place Thursday at 7 p.m. PT at The Birch: North Park Theater, located at 2891 University Avenue in San Diego.
Then on Saturday, Roddenberry will host a panel at Comic-Con with Roddenberry, producer Trevor Roth and others in Room 7AB at the convention center. The panel will start at 3 p.m. PT.
Roddenberry.com is the official sponsor of San Diego Comic-Con coverage on Airlock Alpha and the GenreNexus websites.
This will not be fans’ only chance to see “Trek Nation” on the big screen. Roddenberry plans to show both the documentary and “White Room” Aug. 9 during the official Star Trek convention in Las Vegas.
