This podcast by Eugenia and Gerri is the last in their trilogy of Star Trek: The Next Generation icons (for now anyway). They had the pleasure of talking to Marina Sirtis who played Counsellor Deanna Troi at First Contact Conventions Oz Trek 3. They discuss the character of Troi and the contributions she made to the ship and crew of the Enterprise and then you get to listen to the delightful Marina as she talks about her involvement in Star Trek, her life and impending projects. Visit www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for some great upcoming conventions.
Gerri and Eugenia talk about one of their favourite incarnations of Star Trek the sometimes maligned Star Trek Voyager! However, the appeal to the Women Talk Sci Fi presenters is of course that this show has more strong female characters than any other does! However, this is not only their point of discussion they talk about, the longest serving Ensign in Starfleet, the very much indomitable Harry Kim. Yes the interview with this episode is none other than Garrett Wang. So sit back and enjoy! Thanks to Scotty and Diana from First Contact Conventions www.firstcontactconventions.com.au.
Gerri and Eugenia in this podcast get to interview the man who has appeared in more Star Trek episodes and movies than any other actor. It is none other than Michael Dorn who played the Klingon warrior Worf from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space 9 and of course Colonel Worf in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. This is part 2 of their TNG interview specials and they were very excited to get the chance to speak to one of the most recognised characters from all the Star Trek Series at the First Contact Contact Convention www.firstcontactconventions.com.au
This has to be the funniest podcast Eugenia and Gerri have recorded to date. They caught up with Rene Auberjonois and Ethan Phillips at The Hub Productions www.thehubproductions.com Convention in Adelaide, Australia. In this interview they had trouble keeping their giggles low and almost forgot to ask questions. Listen and find out why, you will enjoy it!
Ever watched a show and noticed that this one-off, short term character stays with you? In this episode Gerri and Eugenia discuss characters that impact the world of Star Trek. Whom do you remember? Which of the five Star Trek incarnations was able to deliver more of these than the other shows? Gerri and Eugenia discuss the characters that impacted them from the one-off to a short stint recurring character. They look at all incarnations of the show and tell us which stuck in with them. Do you agree with them? Who made an impact on you? They also had the opportunity to talk to Hallie Todd www.hallietoddstudios.com who played Lal, Data’s daughter in the episode The Offspring about her time on the show and the new movie she has produced with her husband Glenn Withrow called The Mooring www.themooringmovie.com Thanks to Scotty and Diana from First Contact Conventions www.firstcontactconventions.com.au.
I've Got a Golden Ticket!

Women Talk Sci Fi had a golden chance to make their way. All the way to the world premiere of the new Star Trek movie in Sydney, Australia. I promise that's the last South Park reference I'll make. I can't promise you what the girls will do in the podcast though. Now time to be serious because there are some seriously big stars in this podcast. Interviews with Richard Arnold, Eric Bana and Zachary Quinto. Gerri and Eugenia waylaid Mr Arnold at the Armageddon convention last year in Melbourne. The enthusiasm in his voice for the movie, if not for Paramount, was obvious and reassuring. It gives hope that the right people are doing the right things to our beloved franchise. In fact, it is a sentiment that seems to be shared by many of the cast involved in the movie and relief that the reins have been handed over to someone who cares about Star Trek, someone who wants to see it grow and flourish. Not just that money can be made but so the dream can live on a little longer. I've deliberately mentioned very little about what is in the actual podcast. You will just have to listen to it to find out. You won't be disappointed though. So sit back and be prepared for Gerri to rub it in that she got to go to the world premiere and we didn't.
