Title card for the Trek Nation documentary

Trek Nation is a feature-length Star Trek documentary that first aired on 30 November 2011 on Discovery's Science channel in the US.

This documentary focuses on Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry's son Rod Roddenberry's exploration of the cultural impact of the franchise and includes interviews with George Lucas, J.J. Abrams, and Stan Lee, among others.

Executive producer and narrator Rod Roddenberry stated, "This project is very personal for me, as it literally documents my education on Star Trek, my father, and the Roddenberry legacy. Trek Nation strikes a strong balance between exploring a science fiction phenomenon and relating a very universal story between a son and his father." [1]

Trek Nation was produced for SCIENCE, a division of Discovery Communications, by Roddenberry Entertainment.

Rod Roddenberry hosted the documentary and served as Executive Producer.

The documentary was later released on DVD on 9 July 2013 as a two-disc set with a number of special features. It was released in Germany on 25 October 2013 with German subtitles.
