Happy Star Trek Day

Hey Chasers!

Sorry that we’ve been off the air for so long. Paul and I returned safely from Sierra Leone where we collected nearly a TB of footage of Esther and her school for Esther’s Echo (www.esthersecho.org) and I have also just finished a move out West to one of Canada’s prime sci-fi film locations, Vancouver!

Anyhow, we will be catching back up on Chasing Atlantis very soon. In the meantime, happy Star Trek Day. Star Trek first went to air on this day in 1966. To honor that show which inspired me to do crazy things like drive across the continent to make a documentary film about the last space shuttle, here is an article by one of Canada’s greats, science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer, on the impact that Star Trek has had through the decades. Enjoy

About Chasing Atlantis

In July 2011, when space enthusiasts travelled the world to witness the epic closure of the space shuttle era, Matthew Cimone began a journey of discovering acceptance, belonging, and himself. Joined by Paul Muzzin, director and long-time friend, Matthew endeavours to connect with a community of sci-fi enthusiasts, pop culture icons, and current and former space workers in attempt to resuscitate a dream that was so far out of reach it might as well be space.
