The second of Gerri and Eugenia’s triptych about the reimagined series Battlestar Galactica. Sci Fi television shows have long been able to look at modern societies and take issues that are current and work these into their story lines. They can discuss conflict, religion and war more openly than contemporary shows because if an alien is doing it, then it is not these people or that political group. BSG does just that and is a continuation of a tradition that can be seen in some of the episodes from Classic Star Trek. It takes on this view much more than the original series and of course in this incarnation the “baddies” were created by the human race in their own image, so to speak and the aim of this creation is to replace the originals as the next upgrade is better than the last. So, you think that this may be a bit deep, well yes and no, as always Gerri and talk about some of the issues raised. However, they also have an interview with the very handsome Tahmoh Penikett, Karl Agathon, otherwise known as “Helo”. Did you know that he is the son of an ex Canadian Premier? 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 Tahmoh.
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.
At a First Contact Convention www.firstcontactconventions.com.au in Melbourne last year Gerri and Eugenia had the pleasure of interviewing Dominic Keating who played Lt Malcolm Reed in Star Trek Enterprise. The two of them explore the highs and lows of this Trek incarnation discussing its beginning and end. For an added treat you get to hear Dominic’s alternative version of the Enterprise theme.
Join Gerri, Eugenia and guest presenter Marlene for the final instalment of their Star Trek episodes prior to the public world premiere. This time around is an in-depth interview with John Cho who plays Hikaru Sulu. Gerri and Eugenia also share their thoughts and feelings about their first contact with Star Trek. Check it out now on Women Talk Sci Fi.

But, what happens when you interview one of your ultra-favourite? You geek out! Yes, and that is what they did they geeked out! In this podcast they discuss one of their all-time favourite movies and that is Star Trek First Contact and (another geek out moment) they get to, not only speak to the Director of the movie but also to one of the stars! None other than the handsome, funny and wonderful Jonathan Frakes so who would not GEEK OUT when you get to sit down and talk with an Icon of Sci Fi both as an actor and now a director of some of our favourite TV shows.
