03 August 2012 | Welcome to the second installment of Trek It Out! Trek It Out is a production of the Priority One Staff and hosted on www.priorityonepodcast.com. Trek it Out is conceived as a general interest Science Fiction podcast. In producing this show, our intention is to provide an outlet for news, interviews and opinions on topics that are not directly related to the main interest of Priority One, Star Trek Online. Trek It Out will not at this point be a weekly show. We will produce new Episodes of Trek It Out as the opportunity for great interviews and interesting topics presents itself.
This episode on Trek It Out, we interview an icon from the Star Trek Universe – Mr. Walter Koenig! Best known for his role as Pavel Chekov on Star Trek: The Original Series, Mr. Koenig joins us to discuss his latest endeavors. We discuss everything from Star Trek to his love for writing. Speaking of writing, be sure to check out Mr. Koenig’s latest project: a graphic novel titled, Things to Come #1!

A long-time Trekkie, Elio has been watching the series since he was a child and sneaking in late night, back-to-back, episodes of TNG reruns. He finally embraced the Trekdom in college and spent many hours catching up on the entire multiverse…. instead of studying.
