This is a replay of Episode 13.
Richard Arnold has been around Star Trek most of his life. He was at the first Star Trek convention in 1972, and has, to date, attended over one thousand!
In the 70s, Richard worked as a volunteer for Gene Roddenberry as the creator began plotting the return of Star Trek. He was there, in the Paramount offices, when Star Trek lurched from a movie, to a TV show, and back to a movie again.
While The Next Generation was in production, Richard finally became employed by Paramount and held the position of Research Consultant. As part of his job, Richard vetted proposals for manuscripts, merchandise and licensed ties-ins.
He also has the unique distinction of being an extra in both Star Trek The Motion Picture and also J.J. Abrams' 2009 reboot.
Co-hosts Bob Turner and Kelly Casto talk with Richard for this extended episode of 70s Trek.
