Trek Table is a weekly livestream ritual holding Trek Space for Black, Indigenous, Brown, Women of Color (Queer or otherwise) and their Allies. We gather with Trek heads, newbies, generational Star Trek families, and the sci-fi curious to explore, celebrate, and dive deep into Star Trek Discovery. Trek Table is a little like Sports Center meets a Quiz show, with lots of Improv and a sashay of Ru Paul’s Drag Race while sitting around the table having tea or a bowl of salad to hear women of color’s thoughts, opinions and insights on Star Trek Discovery. It’s a ritual. So we hold space. We breathe together. We laugh and sometimes, we have Star Trek fights – with our phasers set on stun.
We meet weekly in front of a LIVE digital audience. We record a show that we archive as an audio podcast and a video archive. Trek Table welcomes all levels of Trek fandom. Some of our Trek Table hosts identify as Star Trek Femme, Star Trek Light, others come from a generational Star Trek family. We also welcome thoughts from our LIVE digital audience in the chat. Trek Table Questions are posed to all of the Trek Table assembled that day (our hosts & our chat). Additionally, at various moments in the show Trek Table hosts engage with the live chat directly. This also allows multiple layers and different kinds of women of color Star Trek fans (and our allies) to engage in the chat.
Calling Up Justice collaborates with DeLa Projects to produce TrekTable. In season one 2020 the show was a private affair inside a private zoom. Claudia Alick first joined as an active audience member, then quickly into on air talent and segment producer
