As you know Gerri and Eugenia love Star Trek in any of its forms! In this episode they get to interview 8 characters from them (well if you count the many versions of one of this actors parts)! So if you are into Star Trek you already know that they are interviewing Jeffrey Combs who is one of most versatile actors in Sci Fi TV today and you will have seen him in many roles that are “weird”, “iconic” or just plain “strange”. Can anyone of us forget his role of FBI Agent Milton Dammers from The Frighteners or Herbert West from the cult movie Re-animator. Combs is one of the three actors that have played two different roles in an episode of a Star Trek. In the DS9 episode “The Dogs of War”, he played both Brunt and Weyoun and shows his range. He is the only Star Trek actor to be credited for playing two roles in the titles. Gerri and Eugenia discuss Jeffrey and his many roles sans Sci Fi and they would like to thank OZ Comic Con and Blue Planet PR for the opportunity to interview him. You can check out when their next event is coming to your town at www.ozcomiccon.com and www.blueplanetpr.com.au.
TV shows come and go! We enjoy them for the time they are on and revisit them via streaming or DVD, but overall they just entertain us! Few, if any, impact us on a personal level and fewer impact society in any way at all! Though one show has done that for many of us as well as the culture of the world and that of course is STAR TREK! This show with its utopian worldview has provided inspiration to many from human rights, social inclusion, science, space travel and has encouraged us to “boldly go where no one has gone before”. This show has forced us to look at how we, as the human race can achieve, and to consider issues that we are living through, it has made us laugh, awed us and made us look outward! How many other TV shows can claim this? In this episode Gerri and Eugenia talk all things Star Trek, from the original to the many incarnations of fan made homages to the idea and ideals of Gene Rodenberry. To celebrate the 50 YEARS, yes 50 YEARS that this show has been part of history, they have two amazing interviews with stars from the original Star Trek and they are Walter Koenig the original Pavel Chekov ,and Gary Lockwood who played Gary Mitchell in the episode “Where No Man has Gone Before”, (the first episode to been shown in the UK). Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Lionel Midford from www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com and Daniel from www.supanova.com.au for the chance to interview these icons of Star Trek. To also celebrate the impact that this show has had with fans they also bring you interviews with Michele Specht and Kim Stinger from Star Trek: Continues, www.startrekcontinues.com a fan show with many celebrity guests from all over the Sci Fi world. Thanks again to Supanova for these interviews. Gerri and Eugenia dedicate this show to their friend Therese, who is no longer with them. This podcast exists because Therese introduced our hosts and due to that you are listening to them today! As Therese would say, keep on “Star Trekking Across the Universe”!
Yes, Eugenia and Gerri are talking about Star Trek again, and this time it is about the many faces seen and unseen! Sometimes actors appear as different characters in TV shows and its incarnations and that is what we have in this episode, in fact they have interviews with actors who have a combined 80+ years in the business. Eugenia and Gerri interview Suzie Plakson and Morgan Sheppard! Some may ask, whom did they play (yes, you will recognise them when you see them)? Suzie known to fans as K’Ehleyr the Klingon with a sense of humour, Dr Selar, (A character from the TNG episode Morgan was in) and Q, the mother of Q’s child Q and of course Tarah the Andorian from Enterprise. Morgan first appeared in the TOS movie Final Frontier, then onto Ira Graves in Schiziod Man (with Susie), Qatai in Voyager and then a Vulcan in Star Trek (2009), the only series they missed was DS9! Both are extremely talented with Suzie is an author, singer, artist, and sculptor! Check her out at http://www.suzieplakson.com . Morgan who is one and has worked with many icons of the movie industry is also one of a select few of actors appearing in Star Trek and Doctor Who (along with his son Mark Sheppard)! Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from http://www.supanova.com.au and http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com respectively for Suzie, and for Morgan Bill and Adele from Armageddon Expo, New Zealand http://www.armageddonexpo.com/nz/ .

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 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.
