Geeks in Vegas

Episode 73: STLV Wrap-Up

VIVA GEEK VEGAS!

STLV50 Wrap-UpIt seems like forever since we’ve sat down and recorded a standard Trek Geeks episode, and we’re back with our wrap-up of the amazing 2016 Las Vegas Star Trek Convention!

We met so many amazing people during the convention, one of whom was one of our favorite podcasters: Norman Lao from Trek.FM and also the Fandom Podcast Network, where he hosts Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast!

Norm sits down to talk to us about his first-ever STLV and some of his cosplay! We’ll talk about some of our favorite experiences, convention going, dressing the part, and even throw in a healthy dose of pop-culture references for good measure!

Plus, we’ll play catch up on some of the things that have happened since our last pre-Vegas episode, we’ll run through the latest Star Trek news from TrekNews.net, and we’ll make a special announcement regarding a new podcast for you to enjoy in January 2017!!

We had a lot of fun recording this episode and we hope you’ll enjoy it!

Episode 28: STLV Wrap-Up & Ashley V. Robinson

IS IT 2016 YET?

It was one amazing time, that’s for sure!

Bill and Dan have returned from the gigantic Official Star Trek Convention in (Fabulous) Las Vegas, Nevada!

They met new friends…

They got autographs…

They took pictures…

…and they laughed a LOT.

They also came back with the mysterious “Khan Krud” that seemed to affect a lot of people who attended. Now that they’ve finally recovered from that, they wrap up their experiences at STLV and talk about some of their lasting memories from this year’s trip!

Plus, we’re also joined by one of the new friends we made during the trip–none other than Ensign Williams from the web series, “The Red Shirt Diaries!” Ashley Victoria Robinson will talk about her favorite moments of the convention and tell us about the upcoming second season of RSD which debuts new, weekly episodes on YouTube starting Monday, September 14th!

Plus, find out all about Dan’s inability to set an alarm clock–all in this episode of the Trek Geeks Podcast!

CATCH UP ON RSD SEASON 1

The best way to prepare for season 2 of The Red Shirt Diaries is to catch season 1 all over again! You can do it–there’s 10 episodes and we believe in you! (Well, Bill does.  Dan…not so much.)

Episode 27: Geeks in Vegas, Part III

DABO!

It’s the third of our minicasts from this year’s Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas!

Once again, Dan and Bill report on their experiences from high atop the Flamingo, overlooking the Las Vegas Strip! We met many listeners and new friends yesterday–and we hope to meet even more of you today as the KHAAANN winds down.

Today we recap all the great cosplay, Dan’s fanboy moments meeting Vic Mignogna, and our plans for today. Plus, hear about how Dan and Bill will randomly be screaming in the Dealer’s Room with Michele Specht at various, unpredictable times.

It’s the last day of our global family reunion where they also happen to hold a Star Trek Convention!  We hope you all enjoy it!

Episode 26: Geeks in Vegas, Part II

HOT AS VULCAN

NOW we understand what the phrase means! Sure, it’s a dry heat, but so is a kiln, honestly. It’s a good thing we spent plenty of time basking in the air conditioning at the Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas!

Dan and Bill recap their second full day of the KHAAANN–they extol the virtues of Hash House a Go Go and talk about their first hand experience playing Star Trek Timelines! To be honest, the awesome folks at Disruptor Beam practically had to pry the iPads out of our hands after we were done test driving the game—but you can find out more about that in today’s episode!

Plus, hear about the screening of “The White Iris” which was presented by our friends at TrekMovie.com! (Did you know how hard it is to get a cab in Vegas anywhere other than a hotel? Yep. We found out! LOL)

Join us for Episode 25 of the Trek Geeks Podcast!
