Star Trek fandom remains strong

For the third consecutive year Trekkies held a strong spot on the Fandom 250 rankings showing that even after all these years our collective voices are loud and proud. In fact fan outpouring even lead to the release of archived, unedited copies of parts of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine For digital remastering to HD for use in a crowdfunded documentary due to be released in 2019.

Add to that the growing size of Star Trek: The Cruise which we recently learned would be headlined in 2020 by Captain Janeway herself, Kate Mulgrew, and there’s no denying that our collective edge as fans remains as sharp as ever.
