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 a behind the scenes look at the upcoming J.J. Abrams interpretation of Star Trek. There is an in-depth interview with director J.J Abrams as well as producer Bryan Burke. Find out what went on behind the cameras during the filming of the new Star Trek movie. Don't worry though Gerri and Eugenia still manage to get a word or two in.
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.
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.
