USA Today: “10 great sites for a ‘Star Trek’ pilgrimage.”

klingon travel guide-coverAs part of the ramp-up leading to the release of Hidden Universe Travel Guides – Star Trek: The Klingon Empire, the nice folks in charge of marketing and publicizing the book had me talk to a number of people. I did a few podcasts (more to come!), of course, particularly some of the higher profile ones within the Star Trek (and Trek fandom) community.

One of the more interesting – and atypical, at least for me – interview opportunities came from journalist Larry Bleiberg and a special feature for USA Today. Rather than just write a simple piece about the Klingon Guide, Larry instead picked my brain for some real-world locations with ties to Star Trek, be they locations referenced in the shows or films or else places that go “above and beyond” so far as celebrating Star Trek in some manner. The result?

USA Today: 10 great sites for a ‘Star Trek‘ pilgrimage

Many thanks to Larry for asking me to help out with this piece, and to Eric and Matthew at Insight Editions for hitting the marketing and publicity pedals hard on this one. It’s been fun!

Oh, and be sure to check out that Klingon Travel Guide. I hear it’s pretty cool. 🙂

    Hey they forgot Minerva Terrace in Yellowstone National Park — the planet Vulcan in Star Trek-The Motion Picture — and Yosemite Park from the fifth Star Trek movie.
