Well everyone…  we have been quite lazy, but we have a fire under our arses once again to excrete the continuing mission of Talk Trek.  We are planning our next Extravaganza for sometime later this summer.

Stay tuned!


The Return of Talk Trek

It seems every summer, we get sidetracked by life.  This summer was no different, except that the excitement of life extended into the fall.  The episode we released this past weekend (The Deadly Years) was actually recorded last February, I believe, which is quite fun to listen to.  So much has occurred since that month.

Here is a quick overview:

  • Talk Trek Crew (sans ClankFu) went to Vegas
  • Njord4 and wife went to Hawai’i
  • Vontresc went to San Diego
  • Njord4 and wife adopted the most beautiful puppy in the world, Gunner
  • ClankFu and wife lost one hedgehog and adopted another
  • No deer were shot by any of the Talk Trek Crew
  • ClankFu broke his foot and NewPowerSoulMan’s baby broke her arm
  • Vontresc attained his commercial glider certificate
  • Njord4 attained his instrument rating
  • NewPowerSoulMan’s baby turned 2
  • NewPowerSoulMan, ClankFu, and the Vontresc both entered their 35th years
  • Njord4 ended age 32

We hope 2009 treated you all with as much adventure as it has treated us!

Happy Holidays and let’s welcome the new year for the joy it has the potential to bring!

Live Long and Talk Trek!

    A sad announcement…

    Unfortunately, Ned, the Talk Trek mascot, died Thursday morning. He was less than 1 year old. He will be missed.

    “A Dream” by Edgar Allen Poe (Episode 45)

    The first Talk Trek Poem of the Week is titled “A Dream” by Edgar Allen Poe.  This poem will be discussed along with Episode 45.


    In visions of the dark night
    I have dreamed of joy departed-
    But a waking dream of life and light
    Hath left me broken-hearted.

    Ah! what is not a dream by day
    To him whose eyes are cast
    On things around him with a ray
    Turned back upon the past?

    That holy dream- that holy dream,
    While all the world were chiding,
    Hath cheered me as a lovely beam
    A lonely spirit guiding.

    What though that light, thro’ storm and night,
    So trembled from afar-
    What could there be more purely bright
    In Truth’s day-star?

    Poem of the Week

    Here at Talk Trek Enterprises, we’re going to start a new segment aptly named “Talk Trek Poem of the Week.”  Each week, we will choose a poem that has captured and raptured the minds of the Talk Trek crew so much so, that we must talk about it!

    This week, we will be recording Episode 45 – The Gamesters of Triskelion, so stay tuned in a few weeks when we release it.  You will also hear an educated discussion of the Talk Trek Poem of the Week!

    Greetings from Ned!

    Hello, my name is Ned. I am hybrid of the African pygmy hedgehog and the Algerian hedgehog and I was informed a couple of weeks ago that I am the official Talk Trek mascot. Whatever, as long as the Star Trek episodes and the mealworms keep coming. I suppose I have to do *something* to earn my keep around here. I was born in July 2008 at Hedgehog Valley in Iola, KS.

    Truth be told, I spend most of my day sleeping. Like most hedgehogs, I am most active during the evening and night, though Jim’s wife likes to get me up during the day sometimes so she can coo at me and tell me how cute I am (and I’m not complaining). I eat high-grade cat food, some human foods (I just love beef brisket!), and mealworms. During the night, I like to run on my wheel and stick my little nose in old toilet paper tubes. They’re just so fascinating—all the patterns, all the ways I can lose balance and roll on my back, it’s just so much fun (and I look so good doing it).

    I’ll be watching Star Trek episodes with Jim from now on and give you the hedgehog’s take on the action. If I like the episode, you’ll get to see my face, but if it’s a bad episode you’ll get to see just how much of a ball I can roll into (I’m easily offended). Is it kind of silly? Sure, it is, but if it’s what I gotta do to get some good barbecue around here….

    Anyway, I am going to do some cute hedgehog things like burrow in a blanket on the couch. See you later!
