Growing up in the U.K. as a Star Trek fan has its challenges from viewing the television show behind schedule from the United States to product placement within the department stores. Currently, viewing Star Trek is a lot easier than it was back when The Next Generation aired for the first time. Join us in a delightful conversation on the struggles of what it was like to be a Star Trek fan in the early 1990s.

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Lee Hutchison, Richard Marquez, and special guest Kay Elizabeth Shaw discuss what it was like to grow up in the U.K. Each provide their own perspective comparing Star Trek in the U.K. versus the U.S.
