In each episode the guys talk about the latest Trek news and rumors, then discuss general topics related to the TV shows, movies and more. The debate is always passionate and they try to make sure that the topic always stays focused on Trek. After all, that's why they named the show "The Topic is Trek." But please forgive them if they stray from time to time. Their geekery tends to ramble.

The Topic is Trek Clinton Alvord, Kreg Steppe, and Chuck Tomasi

Aye Love It, says Danny Hillcrest

And not only do I love “it”, I love Star Trek shows too, which is a good thing, because if I did not, then I might not have recognized what a fantastic podcast this is!

HansCopilot ,

The topic is also ‘fun’

The Technorama and Comedy4cast teams team up (teams team up? Yeesh that doesn’t sound right) for a great Star Trek podcast.

Clinton, Craig and Chuck have a great chemistry and know their Trek. I’m sometimes amazed at how fast and furious the obscure Trek references fly.

A must listen for Trek fans! Here’s hoping they make ‘The Topic is Firefly’ or ‘The Topic is Babylon 5’ next!
