Trek Long Island 2 Beams Into Hauppauge

The sequel to Trek Long Island might just go down among the great ones. The second act to one of Long Island’s only Star Trek conventions is officially part of a franchise. (The third annual Trek Long Island is already being planned making it a trilogy. You can grab early bird of prey tickets here.)
