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!
Ever watched a show and noticed that this one-off, short term character stays with you? In this episode Gerri and Eugenia discuss characters that impact the world of Star Trek. Whom do you remember? Which of the five Star Trek incarnations was able to deliver more of these than the other shows? Gerri and Eugenia discuss the characters that impacted them from the one-off to a short stint recurring character. They look at all incarnations of the show and tell us which stuck in with them. Do you agree with them? Who made an impact on you? They also had the opportunity to talk to Hallie Todd www.hallietoddstudios.com who played Lal, Data’s daughter in the episode The Offspring about her time on the show and the new movie she has produced with her husband Glenn Withrow called The Mooring www.themooringmovie.com Thanks to Scotty and Diana from First Contact Conventions www.firstcontactconventions.com.au.
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.
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.
Gerri and Eugenia talk about one of their favourite incarnations of Star Trek the sometimes maligned Star Trek Voyager! However, the appeal to the Women Talk Sci Fi presenters is of course that this show has more strong female characters than any other does! However, this is not only their point of discussion they talk about, the longest serving Ensign in Starfleet, the very much indomitable Harry Kim. Yes the interview with this episode is none other than Garrett Wang. So sit back and enjoy! Thanks to Scotty and Diana from First Contact Conventions www.firstcontactconventions.com.au.
It's Life Jim but not as we know it!

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.
