  3. Podcast 70

    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. Thanks go to Scott and Diana Liston from First Contact Conventions, www.firstcontactconvention.com.au for arranging the interview. Listen and find out about Chase’s time on the show and some of her other projects and you even get to listen to a sample of songs from her album which can be purchased through her website www.chasemasterson.com .

What more could a Trekkie ask for than an interview with Kirk and Spock at the same time. Well that is exactly what happens in episode four of Women Talk Sci Fi. There are three things which spring to mind when listening to Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. Their dedication to their craft, the respect they have for those that have come before them and their great sense of humour. Just like J.J. Abrams neither of these great actors claims to have been Trekkies when they accepted their new identities. It seems to be a recurring theme that may be distressing for many Star Trek  fans, however they also share something else in common that alleviates that concern. That is a respect for both the characters they are playing and the fans that have come to love Star Trek. Without that respect a lot of damage could have been done to the beloved Star Trek franchise. That respect coupled with not being encumbered by expectations allows them to breathe new life into Star Trek. The humour that is on display in the interview is another promising glimpse into the new movie. Star Trek was always at its best when it didn't take itself too seriously and had a good laugh at its own expense. J.J. Abrams certainly seems to have surrounded himself with a group of actors who desperately want to bring something of themselves to their characters whilst trying to remain true to the originals. This is an attitude that cannot be missed when listening to Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto talk about their experiences making this movie. It's not all serious talk though,  two actors certainly have a few interesting stories to tell. So join Gerri, Eugenia and guest presenter Marlene with their round table interview with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto.

    I would recommend Gerri that you read the books by Kim Harrison particular the Rachel Morgan series. She is a witch, but is in business with a Vampire and a Pixie. It is full of humour, and has great story lines.
