In this week’s Positively Trek, Dan and Bruce are joined by veteran Star Trek authors Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore. We talk about the Lower Decks trailer, as well as an in-depth discussion about that dreaded C-word when it comes to Star Trek: Canon! Dayton’s role as the “Keeper of Canon” for CBS’s Star Trek projects gives him a unique perspective on this age-old question that continues to rear its ugly head within the fandom.
We also talk with Kevin Dilmore about this year’s truly unique and groundbreaking Star Trek Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments!
