Warp Factor Trek

The Star Trek Fan Website

Atlanta, Georgia native Matt Sweatman has always been familiar with Star Trek but became a fan with the debut of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1987. The political and social ideas presented in the show resonated with the teen and provided a compelling science fiction franchise for a child of Star Wars and other '70s and '80s sci-fi. Soon he was caught up with all the episodes of The Original Series and the movies, as well as with the classic Pocket Books novels of the era. Today, he and his wife Elaine not only write for Warp Factor Trek but also enthusiastically comment on current Trek and other genre programs through Facebook in the groups The ESO Network, Earth Station Who, and naturally, Earth Station Trek.
