Amazing Star Trek Podcast

I have listened to both of you on the Trek FM network before I was really happy to see you had made your own podcast and I love that is podcast promote positivity in Star Trek in the Star Trek community. I wish I could give you more then five stars for the rating keep up the great work. LLAP

Vulcandork ,

BEST Star Trek Podcast anywhere

I have been listening to Bruce and Dan since they were on Literary Treks and it is ALWAYS a treat to listen to them. I can say with most certainty that I agree with their assessments and thoughts close to 99.9% of the time. They have great guests and I absolutely love when thy have the authors on when they do their book reviews. There is so much depth that goes in to the Novelverse and they explore it and look at things like “true believers”(hope you appreciate the Marvel Pun”) as I do. I can only hope someday our culture will “Grow Up” and be what Star Trek offers, A Positive Future! This is the ONLY podcast that I have listen to ALL episodes and look forward to each and every one!

WhoIsaiahTrek1 ,

I’m positive you’ll love them!

This is one of my favorite podcasts. Dan and Bruce are so fun to listen to. They are kind, insightful, and funny. I’m glad they are in the Trek fandom to spread positivity!
