HTP Episode 100 – Larry Nemecek



Larry Nemecek has been around the Star Trek fandom in so many capacities… as a writer, editor, podcaster, and even as McCoy himself in Star Trek Continues.  In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, we’re excited for the premiere of the second season of Lower Decks and amused by the joke about the Tom Paris collector’s plate… which made us remember the Collectible Plate fad of the 80s and 90s.  

That spins into a slightly deeper discussion of how fan trends come and go, and how generations of fans sometimes look at the same concepts very differently.  

Be sure to tune in to Larry’s podcast Portal 47 .  You can also follow him on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, and find all his info on his official website.

Peter David is an extremely talented author, writing for many great franchises such as Star Trek, X-Men, Superman, Babylon 5, and many other worlds he created.  Peter is also a long-time fan of science fiction, and has a great perspective on how fandom changed from the early days of conventions though today.  In this episode, he and I have a great talk that includes the transition between Star Trek: TOS and Star Trek: TNG, and how the Vietnam War made for a different perspective between the two shows.  We also reflect on rivalries between fandoms, how it’s often an illusion, but also ways in which those rivalries can be very real.

You may have started to get hungry during our discussion of ribs and rib parties… if so, the Atlanta-based rib place we were discussing is Fat Matt’s Rib Shack . Fried chicken can be found at The Colonnade.

If you’d like to check out some of his books, consider starting with Q-Squared, Imzadi, or Pulling Up Stakes.  You’d also do well to check out his independently-published books at Crazy 8 Press, a writing consortium.

You can follow Peter at his official website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.  For some extra content, you can back his Patreon account.

The Life Radio Show 5/12/2020

I had a great time discussing Hungry Trilobyte with Don Smith from The Life Radio Show, out of WWSU. We got to cover a lot of ground on why fandom helps people cope, and how to use it to prompt creativity and positivity. I cover my favorite Treks, analyze the newer Star Wars movies, and gush over MST3k in the 21st century.
