iBUG Trekkie Talk


Since many iBUGgers are also Trekkies or Trekkie wanna-be's, we have created a discussion group to watch audio described episodes of Star Trek, the Original  Series (TOS) and then meet together via conference call to discuss the episodes.  We review the episodes on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month, 8:00 PM (CT).  The iBUG Trekkie Talk discussion group is facilitated by Shane Christennson.  Everyone (even if they are not a member of iBUG) is welcome to participate.

The audio described episodes of Star Trek TOS are available as MP3 files that may be streamed directly to your iDevice by accessing the links below.  The video espisodes (non-audio described) of Star Trek TOS are avail from several sources including Netflix, Amazon Prime movies, Hulu+, and CBS All Access.  The Trekkie Talk group discussion recordings are provided at the end of each episode listing.

To connect to the Trekkie Talk conference call, we recommend using the FCC Dialer app (search for Free Conference Call in the App Store) on your iDevice to connect to the conference call using your Wi-Fi internet connection.  Otherwise, you may use the dial-in number listed below.  Note that this is not a Toll-Freee call, so it is best to use your cell phone or VOIP line to avoid long distance charges.

Conference Dial-in Number:  (605) 468-8002

Participant Access Code:  154497# (i.e., enter # sign after entering access code)
