Warp Factor Trek

The Star Trek Fan Website

Whereas Matt was a fan of Star Trek since the premiere of TNG in 1987, it wasn't until a fateful trip to Vegas and Star Trek: The Experience at the Vegas Hilton in 2006 that Elaine was introduced into the crazy world of Star Trek fandom. The newly engaged couple had already spent time exposing each other to their individual interests, but a shared Borg sphere cocktail, a Klingon maître d’, and a trip to a prop museum in which they had to stall for time to allow the effects of said cocktail to ease before boarding the motion rides allowed for a deeper dive into the complicated and wonderful history of Star Trek. Now Elaine and Matt are enjoying the newly energized franchise on Paramount+, examining more of the franchise’s past through re-watching the shows in continuity order. In addition to collaboratively writing articles for Warp Factor Trek, Matt also occasionally writes articles for the website by himself.
