Positively Trek 220: Sailing the High Seas with Bryson

Mi'kmaw, Star Trek Fan, and Real-Life Ship’s Navigator


Very few among us get the opportunity to live a life navigating ships by the stars, taking the helm of a powerful vessel, and exploring the frontier on a mission of discovery. Whether it’s aboard a starship or, in the case of Bryson, a tall ship or modern seafaring vessel, pushing the boundaries of human knowledge while exploring the unknown is a thrilling adventure.


In this episode of Positively Trek, hosts Barry and Dan welcome Bryson to the show. We discuss his Star Trek fandom, how he feels like a real-life Starfleet officer while performing his duties, and the limits of Star Trek’s representation when it comes to Indigenous issues. This episode features a great discussion that you won’t want to miss!


We also discuss the week’s Trek news, including an Emmy nomination for Star Trek: Prodigy and new Star Trek: The Next Generation action figures from Super7.
