They discuss the character of Troi and the contributions she made to the ship and crew of the Enterprise and then you get to listen to the delightful Marina as she talks about her involvement in Star Trek, her life and impending projects. Visit www.firstcontactconventions.com.au for some great upcoming conventions.
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.
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.
Join a behind the scenes look at the upcoming J.J. Abrams interpretation of Star Trek. There is an in-depth interview with director J.J Abrams as well as producer Bryan Burke. Find out what went on behind the cameras during the filming of the new Star Trek movie. Don't worry though Gerri and Eugenia still manage to get a word or two in.
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.
