Congratulations to Gerri and Eugenia on reaching double figures. In this podcast they interview Richard Hatch when they caught up with him at Supanova (www.supanova.com.au) this year. In the podcast you will also hear Eugenia and Gerri talking about watching the original Battlestar and comparing it to the recent re-imagined series. The two of them will be off to Armageddon www.armageddonexpo.com soon with the promise of more exciting interviews and of course lots more to talk about because Women Talk Sci Fi.
This is the last episode in the Battlestar Galactica triptych and Eugenia and Gerri discuss how a science fiction show not only can it be entertainment but once in a while can contribute to changing the world and they don’t mean that in a fictional sense! BSG made it to the United Nations where they talked about the “races of the world” or in their opinion just one race, “the human race”. This was an underlying theme of the series and one that is dear to the heart of Eugenia and Gerri’s interviewee in this episode. Yes, they have an interview with none other than Admiral Adama, the wonderfully talented Edward James Olmos himself, (but you knew that because you saw the picture above)! In this episode they discuss the issues that are raised in the interview and their impressions of the show, its conclusion and the meaning of what it is to be a human. They thank Daniel from Supanova Expo www.supanova.com.au and Lionel Midford, from Lionel Midford Publicity www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview Edward.
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.
In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri interview Herb Jefferson Jr. at Supanova Sydney www.supanova.com.au, who is Boomer from the original Battlestar Galactica TV series but, that is not what this podcast is about. It is about Star Trek fan fiction films. What is the link between Herb and Star Trek fan fiction? You will have to listen and the connection will become clear. Eugenia and Gerri talk about Star Trek Aurora www.auroratrek.com Hidden Frontier www.hiddenfrontier.com and Star Trek of Gods and Men www.startrekofgodsandmen.com amazing stories based on Star Trek from avid and talented fans.
When you think of Star Trek Deep Space Nine you not only think of the main cast but the many recurring characters in the show. This is a show with a strong supporting cast that Eugenia and Gerri could have spent hours discussing. To choose just a few of them was proving a challenge for them both as one name lead to another including Gul Dukat, Garak and or course the magnificent Ferengi. One of these memorable characters was Leeta who was not only a Dabo girl but also the consort of the Grand Nagus. In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri interview Chase Masterson who played Leeta. Thanks go to Scott and Diana Liston from First Contact Conventions, www.firstcontactconvention.com.au for arranging the interview. Listen and find out about Chase’s time on the show and some of her other projects and you even get to listen to a sample of songs from her album which can be purchased through her website www.chasemasterson.com .
