Hello there! Welcome to Zach Trek II. This is a site mainly devoted to Zach’s original series Star Trek collectibles, with a smattering of other stuff mixed in. Zach is an all-around nerd, so you’ll likely find some references and tie-ins to other nerdy stuff (in fact, you may have spotted one already).
This is Zach Trek II because there was a Zach Trek, The Original Blog (TOB?). Zach Trek II is a “refit” and upgraded model of the blog (you can read more about the original blog and find a link to it here).

Collectibles are the main focus of this blog. Keep scrolling down to see some of the latest posts, which should include some collectibles, or check out…
From this page you can view collectibles by category, often with some introductory remarks about the category.
Inevitably, Zach occasionally wants to write about stuff other than collectibles, be it his own thoughts or something non-collectible but still of Trek-interest. These are classified as “randoms.”
For the most part, these are not videos made by Zach, but videos that Zach thinks are entertaining and/or worthwhile.
Here is a collection of links to other sites that Zach Trek visitors may find useful or entertaining, possibly including some non-Star Trek sites.
If you just enjoy this site so much you want to find out every time something new is added, you can sign up for email notifications here, or at the bottom of any page. Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy exploring Zach Trek II, and may you live long and prosper!
