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.
The Star Trek Movie review that we have all been waiting. Hear what the Women Talk Sci Fi girls thought of the new reincarnation of Star Trek. Not only is there a review but there is a fantastic interview with the new Bones McCoy, Karl Urban.
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!
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 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
