If you were a Star Trek fan in the 1970s and were fortunate enough to attend a convention, odds your host was Steven Lance a.k.a. “Heash.”

In this episode of Standard Orbit, Steven joins hosts Zach Moore and Hayley Stoddart to discuss how he came to be a fan of Star Trek, a talent show at Lunacon 1973 that opened up the world of Star Trek conventions to him, his time as host of those conventions, and the close friendship he developed with James Doohan.
