The podcasters of “Planet Trek fm”, Claudia Kern, Christian Humberg and Björn Sülter, are once again inviting Trekkies, for Trekkies and with Trekkies to take part in this year’s big group therapy session. On an exciting topic that will be announced at “FedCon”, the three of them will have a lively, open, honest and fair discussion with the audience and try to find a consensus even on difficult issues that often lead to disputes, especially online.

After all, that’s what “Star Trek” should be all about, right? Talking to each other, listening to each other, accepting arguments and seeking and finding common solutions. Claudia Kern, Christian Humberg and Björn Sülter are looking forward to seeing you and may even welcome a surprise guest or two on stage. But in any case: Let’s talk TREK!
