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.

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.
