I met Travis Richey last year at Bent-Con, but as a huge fan of the NBC series Community, and their Doctor Who parody called Inspector Spacetime, I was already a follower of his because by then I was following his Youtube page Sivartis.There I began watching his videos and so when December last year arrived, I was excited to meet him.

Roddenberry and George Takei) along the way. The popularity of "Phase II" and other similar productions like "Star Trek: Hidden Frontier" has put CBS Television in a tough spot.
