For over 50 years Doctor Who has graced TV and Movie screens all over the world. It has not only brought us great stories, but also iconic characters who not only contributed at the time, but continue to do so in the Whoniverse. In this episode Gerri and Eugenia talk with some of those iconic actors who travelled in the T.A.R.D.I.S. Including, Geoffrey Beevers who played that “oh so evil” character The Master and the indomitable John Levene who played the role of Sgt Benson of UNIT. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Scott Liston of First Contact Conventions for allowing them interview time with these interesting people. Find them at www.firstcontactconventions.com.au Along with these characters from Classic Who Gerri & Eugenia speak to newer icons from the Whoniverse including Catrin Stewart who portrayed the feisty Victorian Jenny Flint. Thanks go to OZ Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com Last, but not least Pearl Mackie who brought us the irrepressible Bill Potts and who always wanted to live more. Thanks to Daniel of Supanova and Lionel of Lionel Midford Publicity, catch them at www.supanova.com.au and www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com
They say that wolves form packs? In this episode Gerri and Eugenia prove that this is true, well werewolf packs anyway. Humans that turn into wolves has long held a fascination for Sci Fi, fantasy and horror fans and this episode continues to substantiate that fact. So, as you can see there are lots of talking about wolves in this episode and they have interviews with wolves from different eras and types! Gerri and Eugenia have four interviews for you in this episode. David Naughton (David Kessler, the werewolf) from the hugely successful, 1980s movie “An American Werewolf in London”, which even today still has some of the best werewolf transformation scenes. They also have interviews with three of the actors from “Teen Wolf”, they speak with Ryan Kelley, (Deputy Jordan Parrish), Dylan Sprayberry (Liam Dunbar) and Kyhlin Rhambo (Mason Hewitt). Find out what they think about the evolution of the fascinating mythology of humans turning into beasts. They would like to thank Scott Liston for the opportunity to interview what for them was a “very hard task, not” of these great actors.

UK TV has some shows that never really grow old they just keep on giving. One of these is the iconic Sci Fi comedy Red Dwarf! In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk to another of the cast. The smartest and dumbest computer on board the ship, (even the scutters are more intelligent than Holly on occasion) is who they are interviewing, the funny and sardonic Norman Lovett. But, as with any episode of Red Dwarf the unexpected can happen and that happened when they started interviewing Norman! In pops the redoubtable Craig Charles, who audio-bombed Norman, what happens next is a laugh fest where Eugenia and Gerri just sit back and let it happen! Eugenia and Gerri also talk all about the latest series’, yes, including Season 9 .
Don’t forget to catch up with their previous interviews with cast members including Cat (Danny John-Jules), Lister (Craig Charles), Kryten (Robert Llewellyn) and Captain Hollister (Mac McDonald). Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scott Liston of www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for the opportunity to interview Norman and Craig.
This podcast recorded part way through the series has Gerri and Eugenia speculating who the Captain of Discovery was to be! This incarnation of Star Trek is a darker, grittier version. No mention of “The Prime Directive” and of course all that technology that we never saw on the USS Enterprise. Have those that believe Star Trek canon should be followed to the letter accepted this new version of the franchise? As we have moved on with our own technology, so has the film industry and it would be “silly” to use the production values or props of the 1960’s in the telling of these stories. Discovery does however (BTW it seems that the show title has been shortened to Star Trek: DSC to fit in with the shortened form of the other shows), give nod to a least the sounds of the 60s with the noticeable hisses of the doors and the tinkle of the transporters and of course the flip communicators, paying homage to The Original Series. Star Trek again looks to the world that we live in with xenophobia being central to current story lines and a retelling of the Mirror Universe, first seen again in TOS. So whilst being new it acknowledges what went before. So far Gerri and Eugenia like the show and look forward to the development of a new history that adds to the mythology of one of their favourite franchises. Don’t forget to check back through their catalogue to re-listen to their episodes covering all of the Star Trek incarnations and even some fan made shows. In this episode Gerri and Eugenia pull an interview from the archive with Rekha Sharma who played Security Chief, Commander Landry. Recorded before the making of the new series, Rekha has been a fan of the show from a child having watched it with her father. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank Rob and Sandra from Culture Shock Events who gave them the opportunity to interview Rekha. Check out www.cultureshockevents.com for their upcoming shows.
In this episode Eugenia and Gerri have been able to “transform” a one interview episode into three!!! How did they do this? Whilst looking into their vault of interviews for a topic they found that they had three interviews about the transformation of an 80s cartoon series into a live action movie franchise! So, what is this episode about, well it’s about Transformers of course. The cartoon series that captured the imagination of many children and when they also got the toys that “transformed” from cars and trucks into ‘super beings’, who could blame them? They also discuss how CGI can enhance or take away from the storytelling of a movie. The interviews they have in this episode transport us from animation to live action and include, Garry Chalk, the voice of the 80s Optimus Prime ( Colonel Chekov in Stargate SG-1). Tony Award winner, Julie White , who played Julie Witwicky from the live action movies. Last, but not the least of them, Mark Ryan who voices the much loved Bumblebee. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Culture Shock Events www.cultureshockevents.com for the interview with Garry. Bill and Adele from Armageddon New Zealand www.armageddon.com for the interview with Mark and Daniel from Supanova www.supanova.com.au and Lionel from www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the interview with Julie.
In the 1960s, TV shows mixed it up and Get Smart was one of them! Was it a Spy show, a Sci Fi show, or a comedy? Get Smart was all of them with a little bit of social change chucked in as well! As you can see by the image, Eugenia and Gerri are talking Get Smart, that Sci Spy Fi Comedy show, where technology ruled. Who didn’t want a “shoe phone” or a “Cone of Silence” and the smartest person in the room was Agent 99, a women who always saved the day and the boys! All the characters of this show are iconic, from Agent 86, Maxwell Smart, to the previously mentioned 99, the girl with no name and of course one of the agents of KAOS “Siegfried” the one with many names! Of course this show is all about the standard story of “good vs evil” or ‘control vs chaos”. Funny, pertinent, up-to-date with all the gizmos and social happenings of its time Get Smart, still is all of those things today. So who are Eugenia and Gerri talking to? Two of the icons of the show, Barbara Feldon and Bernie Kopell Agent 99 and Siegfried respectively. They would like to thank Culture Shock Events – Rob and Sandra find them at www.cultureshockevents.com for Bernie and for Barabra Feldon Daniel from www.supanova.com.au and Lionel from www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview these icons! Eugenia and Gerri get all the fun!
The truth is out there! Well, where have you heard that before? Eugenia and Gerri get to talk about the truth of The X-Files and the impact this show had on the psyche of Sci Fi fans. Well written, with two of the most memorable characters to appear in a TV show and to make it even more memorable was that the skeptic and rational one was a women!!! Who does not know the theme to this show and thinks of the many strange and weird ideas it discussed! So who are they talking with in this episode? One of the shows stand out characters, Dean Haglund who played Richard “Ringo” Langley from the group called “The Lone Gunmen” (they even got their own show!). Dean also has a “podcast”of his own and you can catch him at www.chillpakhollywood.com
The X-Files was a show that paved the way for many of the genre that are on TV now such as Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Torchwood and even Buffy! This show was scientific, fantastical and just right out there at times! It is one of those shows that we still look forward too when we hear that a new movie or series many be on the way! Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scott Liston of First Contact Conventions for the opportunity to interview Dean. Find out about shows coming to you at www.firstcontactconventions.com.au
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.
Remember Angel the TV show! Whilst it has not been on our television for many years it was one show that is hard to forget! Not only did it entertain us, but it taught us as well! The main theme of the show was about “good v evil”, but there was also an underlying theme of “yes you can overcome your base” and you can aim to change the way that you interact with the world! So what do Eugenia and Gerri have for you in this episode? They talk about Angel the show with not one, but two vampires who got their “humanity” back! Angel and Spike who could want more, well we could, do more episodes if that is possible “Josh”! This show still stands up today and could be said that it and Buffy changed the way that we look at female heroes, not only are they brave but like Fred they can be smart too! So in this episode Eugenia and Gerri get to talk to J. August Richards and Mercedes McNab. The guy from the hood that is good (Gunn), and the vampire who tried to be better (Harmony). This show had a darker, more grown-up theme than Buffy, however it did have a lighter side! Who can forget Muppet Angel, well Eugenia and Gerri can’t! Just do a Google search, it still makes them laugh!
They would like to thank Daniel of www.supanova.com.au and Lionel of www.lionelmifordpublicity.com for their interview with Mercedes and Oz Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com and Sophie Blue of www.blueplanetpr.com.au for their interview with J. August.
Now many years ago when Gerri and Eugenia started their podcast and put their names out with the publicists and media for the conventions that were happening around Australia. One of the first interviews they had the opportunity to carry out was with Richard Hatch who was a generous and gracious interviewee to a couple of new interviewers. Battlestar Galactica was one the television shows that cemented their fascination with Science Fiction and it is with great regret that they hear of Richard’s passing. With respect and In Memorial to Richard and his fans they would like to re-air their podcast from 2010.
Sometimes life just brings you moments that you will never forget! This episode is one of those for Eugenia and Gerri. They get to talk to not one, not two, but six guests on their first “live recorded” episode! As you know , they have interviewed some amazing people over the years, but this one is special to them! They have a real life “spaceman” on it, having interviewed many who have pretended to leave the planet this one really did! Did they “GEEK OUT”, yes, of course they did! They got to speak with Col Rick Searfoss, Commander of the Space Shuttle Colombia, what an amazing opportunity! That is not all though, they also interview the star of the new Australian TV show “Cleverman”, Hunter Page-Lochard, Dorian Gregory , from “Charmed”, and Malese Jow from “The Flash”! But wait, there’s more! They also chatted to two fans from the convention about their experiences with fandom and what they like about the genre, Eleanor, Cosplayer and Chris who is the Director of “Starwalking– Star Wars Appreciation Society”, www.starwalking.net However, it doesn’t stop there, they also have a geeky song for you, from the lovely Meri Amber, geek pop singer-songwriter from Sydney, Australia. Check out her music at www.meriamber.com Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scotty and Diana Liston of AMC Expo, www.amcexpo.com.au for their wonderful experience and or course Locky and Ray (you know who you are!)

For decades the stories of Terry Nation dominated the UK’s BBC viewing audience, he was the creator of one of the world’s greatest and iconic villains the “Daleks” of Doctor Who fame He was also the script writer for shows such as UK stalwarts, The Champions, The Avengers, The Saint and even MacGyver. He was instrumental in the creation of two TV shows those being “The Survivors” and “Blakes 7”. This program, Blakes 7 running for four seasons from 1978 to ’81 was different to everything else on TV and was also just damn well entertaining. The story of escaped rebels who after witnessing the cover-up of a massacre formed a resistance, stole an alien ship called “The Liberator” and their adventure begins. We watch as they are chased across the galaxy by the corrupt Terran Federation who tries to subdue this team of freedom fighters. It was a show praised for its dystopian themes, but it also had a sense of fun. In this episode Gerri and Eugenia have the pleasure of interviewing Sally Knyvette who played Jenna Stannis the ship’s pilot and smuggler from Blakes 7. Sally talks to them about the phenomenon that is Blakes 7, a show that still resonates 40 years on. Sally works now not only as an actor but as a theatre director and producer, bringing to the stage works of famous writers and promoting new talented writers. Gerri and Eugenia talk to Sally about her pathway to acting and her work as a director and the trials and tribulations of theatre life.
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”!
When are the dead, dead? In this episode Eugenia & Gerri look at the horror genre with the current round of zombie shows!! Now zombies have been around since the early 1800s (think of Frankenstein’s monster for one), but in recent times shows about them just keep coming, just like the zombies! So have a listen to what they think is so cool about zombies. Gerri although not generally scared by anything in horror (her horror movies are films like Silence of the Lambs, you know the ones with human monsters), she does say that the first episode of The Walking Dead scared the bejeebers out of her when Rick is stuck in an armoured vehicle in the first ep! Eugenia loves iZombie who she feels does not take its self seriously and Gerri’s is Z Nation, a show that shows the ridiculous side of humanity! So if they are talking about zombies who are Eugenia & Gerri talking with in this episode! From their vaults they have an interview with the “bad boy” everyone loves Norman Reedus who plays Daryl Dixon and Chad Coleman who plays Tyreese Williams both from The Walking Dead. Eugenia & Gerri would like to thank Oz Comic Con http://www.ozcomiccon.com and Blue Planet PR www.blueplanetpr.com.au for the chance to interview these two wonderful actors.
In this episode Gerri and Eugenia discuss fan-favourite Buffy! The show of strong female leads, good and bad vampires, werewolves and the odd demon! Still relevant today with its continuing demonstration that with confidence and some skills you can overcome just about anything! So, who are they talking to in this episode? Almost too many to write about there is the human/demon/human/demon Anya, played by Emma Caulfield and Sarah Hagan a latter day “slayer” from Season 7! However, as they say, “but wait there’s more”! From their archives they have an interview with Georges Jeanty comic book artist who with Joss Whedon created the eighth season of Buffy in comic book form. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank their friends from Gifts for the Geek for the interview with Sarah catch them at www.giftsforthegeek.com.au and for Emma, Blue Planet PR www.blueplanetpr.com.au and Oz Comic Con www.ozcomiccon.com . Again there is another “but wait there’s more” moment and to give you a special bonus as they have an interview with actor, Sophie Don who just happens to be named after the character of their featured interviewed with Emma and Writer/Director, Luke Sparke, from the Australian movie, Red Billabong, check it out at www.redbillabongmovie.com .
Bright colours, fantastical costumes, and insane plots were a hallmark of shows from the sixties and Gerri and Eugenia talk about them in this episode! The sixties, an era of change, new freedoms, the psychedelic colour schemes and of course the music all combined to create new ways of doing things and TV was no different! With themes still relevant to our time of “women’s lib” and “diverse families”, Gerri and Eugenia talk about who could be called the first real woman super hero on television and a family that could only be called diverse and in all of the ways that you can consider! These shows of course include Batman and The Munsters, two of the iconic shows of the sixties they were fun, frivolous and fantastic. So who do they talk to about these wonderful none other than the first (in their eyes) woman super hero of TV the fabulous and sorely missed Yvonne Craig in an interview that they were lucky enough to do when she visited Australia before her death. They also talk with the one and only Eddie Munster otherwise known as Butch Patrick. They would like to thank Daniel and Lionel from Supanova Pop Culture expo, catch them at http://www.supanova.com. au and http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the rare privilege of meeting these sixties icons.
In this podcast Eugenia and Gerri once again discuss one of their favourite TV shows and that of course is Doctor Who! They talk abut how Doctor Who tried to up the anti and introduced what could only be called the “Girl Friday” of Doctor Who, who was trendy, and very, very talkative! This of course could be none other than the indomitable Jo Grant! Companion to the 3rd Doctor and who at the time was a member of the show as it made innovations in the use of “special effects” yes even with the use of lots of quarries, cardboard and of course monsters who even then looked, well the only word is funny! The interview in this episode is with the indomitable (in real life as well), Katy Manning, who at times calls Australia home! As Katy was in playing Jo, a bit of a talker she does not fail us now and this interview for Eugenia and Gerri is one big long one (but that means more for you) and in the listening you never know who may just pop into the interview, giving you not one but two classic series actors! Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scott Liston from First Contact Conventions check them out at http://www.firstcontactconvention.com.au for some amazing upcoming events.
Whilst Eugenia and Gerri do have a bit of a chat at the beginning of this episode they have what they consider to be a very special episode. They are able to bring something to their listeners that has not been heard by many people before and that is an interview with the late, great Jon Pertwee, the 3rd Doctor and their (yes, they are counting) 5th Doctor on their show! In this interview you will find out how Jon got the job of the Doctor, what he really thought of the Master, and of course his “Bessie” and the Whomobile and what he considers the best episodes. This interview is brought to you from the vaults of their friend Peter Budd, a long time convention promoter, convenor, and master of ceremonies at many conventions around Australia. Peter is also the founder of the Apollo Awards http://www.apolloawards.com which will be held at AMC Expo http://www.amcexpo.com.au held in Australia to honour Sci Fi, Fantasy shows and fans and don’t forget to visit the website to see how you can be involved. Peter has provide Eugenia and Gerri with his Convention Q&A with Jon. This Q & A in its original form, is a video over two hours long, so not all of the discussion is presented in this episode, but if you would like to buy a version of the full DVD contact Peter at http://www.apolloawards.com and which Whovian would not like this in their collection? Eugenia and Gerri want to thank Peter for allowing them to use his material and what else Peter is hiding in his vault for the future!
Some characters just turn out to be iconic and Superman is just one of those! He has been round since 1938 (looks good for his age hey!) and has provided the world with inspiration, someone to hero worship, and some damn fine entertainment since then! Superman has appeared in just about every form of entertainment from comic books, to radio, television and movies and there never seems to be a “him again” moment, we just can’t get enough. In this episode Eugenia and Gerri talk about him in all his incarnations and they have an interview with someone very special. That very special interview is with Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in the 1980s movies with Christopher Reeve. These movies brought a whole new dimension to the Legend of Superman, with what were then ground-breaking special effects and again made everyone want to be from a different planet who came to Earth with superpowers! Margot Kidder is one of Eugenia and Gerri’s favourite interviews, with Margot not afraid to talk about her life “warts and all”. This is a very special episode and they would like to thank Scott Liston from First Contact Conventions, http://www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for allowing them to spend time with Margot! The Liston’s have a new experience for fans of “popular culture” coming to Melbourne Australia, with AMC Expo check them out at http://www.amcexpo.com.au . Eugenia and Gerri would also like to thank actor Sam Lloyd (you know him as Ted Buckland from Scrubs) for the use of the Superman March song sung by an a Capella group he sings with called The Blanks. For more of their songs visit http://www.theblankswebsite.com or iTunes.
Every now and then the Antipodes does something fantastic and those little islands to the right of Australian (if Oz is really at the bottom of the world), called New Zealand does something fantastic! Whilst they could be talking about The Hobbit, Gerri and Eugenia are not! They are talking about The Almighty Johnsons, a fantastic and little known show about Norse Gods, New Zealand culture and with really cute main characters. NZ is a funny country, just look at the NZ Airlines safety instructions on YouTube and you will understand! Being the first in the world to welcome in the New Year, NZ’ers have a way of looking at things differently and they did just that with this show! They are a country of migrants and are very welcoming so why wouldn’t the gods like Oden, Thor and all those other wonderful, eccentric characters from Scandinavia want to go there too? This funny, dramatic and clever little show is one of their favourites and Gerri and Eugenia have an interview with one of the main cast the wonderful Dean O’Gorman who played Anders, otherwise known as Bragi, the god of poetry and in his present form (of course it would be this) a PR guru! He was also in that movie that was mentioned before, you know that one with the hobbit in it where he played Fili. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank, Daniel from Supanova Expo http://www.supanova.com.au and Lionel from http://www.lionelmidfordpublicity.com for the chance to interview Dean, watch out for their next exciting guests at a convention near you.
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/ .
Ever wondered who was behind producing classic Doctor Who DVDs Whovians have on their shelves, well wonder no longer! Gerri and Eugenia have been able to interview some of the people who are responsible for us to be able to revisit the classic stories, and complete some of the missing stories so that we can still watch them. Firstly, they interview Dan Hall (who at the time of the interview was) Commissioning Editor of Classic Doctor Who DVD production. Secondly, an interview with Austen Atkinson, founder of Planet 55 Studios, along with one of the animators responsible for animating missing episodes from The Reign of Terror, a 1st Doctor story, as well as Moonbase, a 2nd Doctor story. It was through this painstaking animating process that fans around the world are able to view completed stories that were thought lost forever. Gerri and Eugenia would like to thank The Doctor Who Club of Australia, http://www.dwca.org.au for the opportunity of these interviews during one their Whovention events based in Sydney, Australia.
Resistance is futile; you will listen to this episode as Eugenia and Gerri talk Borg. Are they the best villains ever come up with in a Sci Fi show? Whilst this species (if you can call them that), first came to our attention with the first appearance of Q and proved to Starfleet that there were some nasty surprises out there in the big bad Universe! So, where did they come from? There are many different ideas to where the originated, including, nano technology, to the integration of V’ger and Ilia and many more! If you want to find out more visit Memory Beta (A Star Trek Wiki) at http://memory-beta.wikia.com/wiki/Borg_history. Is the Borg one of the scariest baddies ever thought, what with assimilation, adaption, and their hive mind as the main weapons? One of the most iconic scenes in Sci Fi happened when Jonathan Frakes directed First Contact, who was not amazed as the Queen was constructed before our eyes? Then we turn to ST: Voyager when 7of 9, comes to us as the sexy Borg and we learn so much more about their ways! Then along comes the Borg children and one of those is whom Eugenia and Gerri interview in this episode. Manu Intiraymi, known as Icheb, the child who was made into a weapon by his people talks Borg and Star Trek. Eugenia and Gerri would like to thank Scotty from First Contact Conventions for the opportunity to interview Manu. Catch them at http://www.firstcontactconventions.com.au to find out what they are up to next.
