Larry Nemecek (born January 18, 1959) is an American Star Trek author, actor, editor, archivist, consultant, interviewer and producer, first widely known thanks to his classic best-seller "Star Trek: The Next Generation Companion" from Pocket Books. He has portrayed Dr. McCoy in the Star Trek Continues web series episodes "Pilgrim of Eternity" and "Lolani" and served as the series' Creative Consultant.Nemecek has launched the pioneering Portal 47 monthly deep-dive features and Trekland Treks custom film-site day tours and other experiences for Star Trek fans, and weekly hosts the new The Trek Files on the Roddenberry Podcast Network, launched in January 2018 as a 15-minute look with a guest at papers, letters, memos and other documents from Gene Roddenberry's own archives. A documentary, "The Con of Wrath," is in the works about the infamous true-life Ultimate Fantasy arena show and convention in 1982 Houston — known as perhaps Star Trek's "most glorious failure."
Under the Trekland banner, he also hosts the online Trek interview series "Switching to Visual", and now produces the "Trekland Tuesdays LIVE" weekly short commentary on his Star Trek Facebook page. So far, he has produced five annual editions in the digitally remastered "On Speaker" archival series, themed from his original interviews with producers and crew from 1992 onward, during the years of the 18-year first Trek TV sequels era. He is married to onetime script coordinator Janet Nemecek.
