Warp Factor Trek

The Star Trek Fan Website

Grayson Thagard is a sci-fi fan from the US who is currently looking for his next mission after a twenty-five-year career in cable news, where he wrote and produced for several national broadcasts, including Morning Express with Robin Meade. Grayson also managed social media for HLN (CNN’s sister network) and served on the team that created digital content for Investigation Discovery. Star Trek has been a part of his life since he watched Spock mind-meld with a ‘lasagna monster’ on The Original Series in syndication in the ’70s. More recently, Grayson can be heard reviewing “the Moopsie episode” of Lower Decks as a guest-host on the Let’s Talk About Treks podcast.
