Episode Info: Do you think you've read everything there is to read about the history of Star Trek? Well, think again. Alpha Waves Radio host Michael Hinman welcomes Mark Clark, the author of the new book, "Star Trek FAQ," that brings a perspective to Star Trek's past that has never been experienced before. Like, did you know that the real killer of the original "Star Trek" series was not NBC, but actually "Gomer Pyle"? Also, did you know that DeForest Kelley, who had a solid career before Bones as a westerns bad guy, couldn't find work after "Star Trek" and had to make ends meet by performing in dinner theater soon after the series was cancelled? Hinman and Clark have a conversation every Star Trek fan should hear, about a book that every Star Trek fan should read. Also joining Michael Hinman is Joe Salcedo, the founder of The Novo Geek, a new online store that caters to the science-fiction geek. It includes things like Star Trek-centric neckties that you'd never be embarrassed to wear to work, notebooks from "Battlestar Galactica" with the corners removed, and thumb drives from "Dexter" that actually look like thumbs collected by the Ice Truck Killer.
