Jeresey Trek was a Star Trek vidding group that made songvids in the VCR-era of vidding. Contributors may have included Nancy M. or Carol L. One of their vids was shown at Eclecticon 1996 under the name Graeme Cree. Their tapes were offered for sale via mail, in person at conventions such as Shore Leave and also listed in the K/S Press.

From an ad in K/S Press #39:

"...Jersey Trek has a delightful sense of humor and true K/S caring as well. Try I Wanna Hold Your Hand, which is an ode to Spock’s hands, or Spock’s Odyssey, which chronicles Spock’s development as a character by using one scene from each episode and movie, or Two Old Cats Like Us, delightfully different! For those romantic moments, I Need You or Like a Little Prayer are sure to satisfy your K/S cravings. And if They’re Coming to Take Me Away doesn’t make you smile, you’re probably living in the Neutral Zone! ..If you want humor, try Junk Food Junkie or Another One Bites the Dust. K/S favorite is And I Love You So, which always causes Jenna to melt in a small puddle with the remote grasped in her trembling hand. Rewind, rewind! But then there’s also K/S themed We’ve Only Just Begun (yes, this one is perfect), and The Way We Were, and The Wind Beneath My Wings. Sigh. Very notable is the way Jersey Trek uses stills in their song vids to great effect. If you don’t have a lump in your throat after viewing Amazing Grace, (bagpipes and a review of Spock’s life as his torpedo tube is shot from the ship, sniff) well, it will be amazing!...
