Phoenix, AZ – Voyage Trekkers, the hilarious sci-fi comedy web series about the worst crew in the galaxy, returns for a second season on May 1st. Voyage Trekkers is a scripted series of 10 weekly episodes.
“We’ve really raised the bar for season two, both with the production and storytelling,” says Creator Nathan Blackwell. “We doubled the amount of production days, built a starship set, and we’re telling much larger stories. We really wanted to blow people’s socks off!”
Voyage Trekkers follows the crew of the GSV Remarkable, the worst starship in the Galactic Union, as they strive to make a name for themselves at the bottom of the space adventure barrel. You can connect with Voyage Trekkers on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blip, Tumblr, Google+, and at voyagetrekkers.com.
“The show is our comedic love letter to the sci-fi genre,” says Blackwell. “We’ve all watched “the best of the best” crews save the galaxy time and again, but I wanted to make a show about the idiots who absolutely sucked at what they did. Sort of like “It’s Always Sunny … In Space.”
