It’s Like Filming Star Trek on a Holodeck

It’s Like Filming Star Trek on a Holodeck

The Mandalorian has given us a new technology to play with: the AR screen, known colloquially as “the Volume,” has revolutionized how television productions are able to bring fantastical alien vistas to life. Now, Alex Kurtzman has expressed a desire to bring the technology over into Star Trek productions!

In this episode of Positively Trek, hosts Dan and Bruce discuss this new development, plus other news such as the expansion of the Eaglemoss Star Trek Starships line into the wider Trek universe, the reveal of a new Star Trek: Picard novel by James Swallow, and a glimpse at the book release schedule for 2021!
