Trek Nation Tonight on Science-TV

posted by Nell Minow

Join George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, Seth MacFarlane and Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry Jr. for “Trek Nation,” tonight at 8 (Eastern and Pacific) on the Science channel for “Trek Nation,” with never-before-seen footage in a 45th anniversary of one of the greatest television franchises of all time, Star Trek.  This tribute follows Gene Roddenberry’s son, Rod, as he explores the deep impact of his father’s singular vision for the future through interviews with fans and many notable Star Trek alums.  The show draws on hours of exclusive footage, including never-before-seen home movies from the Roddenberry family collection and the first-ever Star Trek convention.

If you enjoy this, be sure to watch one of my all-time favorite documentaries, Trekkies and The Captains – A Film By William Shatner, Captain Kirk’s own take on the commanders of the Starship Enterprise.
