A young radio show dedicated to everything Star Trek is now becoming part of a fan club that's everything Star Trek.
And a popular radio show attached to Airlock Alpha may not be far behind.
Trek Radio, which launched last June as the Internet's first radio network dedicated to Star Trek, joins The Federation, the group formerly known as the International Federation of Trekkers, and the only group officially sanctioned by the late creator of "Star Trek," Gene Roddenberry.
"I am so proud to have Trek Radio as part of The Federation Network," said Russ Haslage, president of IFT and The Federation, in a release. "Since our upgrade in early 2010, I had never dreamed that all of these great organizations would come together to form such a great team. Now The Federation is truly multimedia as Trek Radio joins the family."
Among the sites that have partnered with The Federation Network are TrekUnited -- which was purchased by Haslage's team last year -- Star Trek Cruise, Roddenberry.com, online production Star Trek: Phase II, and Airlock Alpha.
"This new affiliation is a great step forward for Trek Radio in its mission to reach as many Star Trek fans as possible and boldly go where no group has gone before," said Trek Radio host Zach Nicodemous, in a release. "Over the past few months, we had brought you many fantastic interviews and going forward, our partnership with The Federation will help us in bringing you many more interviews and exclusive offers."
Trek Radio can be found at TrekRadio.net. It has a variety of popular music and the latest entertainment news.
Airlock Alpha has begun initial negotiations to move its popular Alpha Waves Radio to Trek Radio after announcing last month it was leaving BlogTalkRadio following a move there to start charging shows for service.
The corporation behind Airlock Alpha and Alpha Waves Radio has been talking to various new hosts for its podcast, which over Christmas featured a special surprise guest appearance by "Star Trek" legend George Takei. Among those still negotiating for Alpha Waves Radio is BlogTalkRadio itself, which has offered the show a chance to air commercials to help offset costs.
A decision is expected to be made later this month.
