Valerie hoagland

Valerie spends far too much time thinking about grammar and imagining a better future, which explains a lot about her love for Star Trek (as well as her disappointment with Hoshi Sato’s character). After finishing a doctorate in Italian Renaissance Literature at NYU, she turned her attention to two very important causes: podcasting, and attempting to stop Colonel Green from inciting World War III. To help with the latter, she’s currently completing a Master of Social Work at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College. Unsurprisingly, she scored very highly in compassion and diplomacy on the Kobayashi Maru.

Valerie is the co-host of Lower Decks: A Star Trek Discovery Podcast as well as the creative mind behind Plants in Star Trek.
