Rob also had this to say about the landmark 6 wins:
“Really proud to see all of my very talented collaborators and friends have all of their enormously hard work recognized by those we labored so tirelessly for…the fans themselves.”
Our very own Garth Of Izar Executive Producer Alec Peters just recorded this video for us guys:
Our AWARD WINNING Director/Writer Christian Gossett said:
“There is no better test of what Trek should aspire to than the fans of the Trek community so to be honored with these awards really, REALLY means something special; if your passion and dedication isn’t onscreen, they know. I thank them for the recognition.”
