Trek Nation is a gem!
There are a lot of documentaries about Star Trek, but none as personal and touching as this one. There is something here for everyone to enjoy, whether a life-long Trekkie or someone who is only sort-of aware that it exists. Gene's son tries to answer the question "who was my dad?" and succeeds in presenting a fascinating, informative and entertaining collection of answers to that question, both good and bad. I very much enjoyed watching this and highly recommend it!

A truly great documentary. Incredibly heartfelt and personal. A joy to watch and engaging for any audience. Thank you for sharing your story as well as your father's story Rod.
What a great movie!
Oh I loved this. I grew up watching Star Trek and the journey with Rod and seeing him learn about his father and the impact he had on people was just fantastic! Highly recommend this!
