Hidden Frontier has made appearances in several major publications recently, and the fans have been kind enough to tell us about them!
AfterElton.com, in reply to an overwhelming response from the fan film community, has posted a second article about Star Trek and it's noted absence of gay characters in Trek, and it features us!
