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, Star Trek: Deep Space 9 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 at the First Contact Contact Convention www.firstcontactconventions.com.au
Join Gerri, Eugenia and guest presenter Marlene for the final instalment of their Star Trek episodes prior to the public world premiere. This time around is an in-depth interview with John Cho who plays Hikaru Sulu. Gerri and Eugenia also share their thoughts and feelings about their first contact with Star Trek. Check it out now on Women Talk Sci Fi.
They did it again! Women Talk Sci Fi went to the Australian Premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness! Now they say that it is not a World Premiere but they got to see it first so they are more than happy! In this episode Eugenia and Gerri are on the Red Carpet in the Media Bay so not only did they get to see the Stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, JJ Abrams and many more walk past but did they get to interview some of them as well? Eugenia and Gerri will give you some insight in what it is like to be at a premiere with some commentary from them and they get to chat to some fans who are also hanging on the red carpet waiting to catch a glimpse of some of the stars. They also talk about the film, discussing what they liked and maybe you will hear a little on what they thought of some of the surprises from the movie “No spoilers sweetie” of course!!! In answer to the question did Eugenia and Gerri get to talk with some of the Stars and others on the red carpet well yes they did! So have a listen to Georgina Haig who was in episodes of Fringe, Penelope Austin who composed and sings the song that is in the movie, Karl Urban the wise cracking Bones, JJ Abrams Director extraordinaire and Captain Kirk himself Chris Pine! You may even find out why Eugenia was a little excited to be on the red carpet and why! Yes it could be a little corney but funny! Thanks to Paramount Australia www.paramountpicturesaustralia.com.au and Gabby and Rachel from Way to Blue PR www.waytoblue.com for giving us this great opportunity! So listen and then go out and by a ticket to watch the movie! www.startrekmovie.com.au . You will not regret it.
Eugenia and Gerri got to interview not only one of Star Trek: The Next Generation icons, but three of them. In this first interview of a three part The Next Generation series they interview LeVar Burton otherwise known as Geordie LaForge, the Chief Engineer of the USS Enterprise. They also discuss the Chief Engineers of all the Star Trek incarnations. They caught up with LeVar at the First Contact Convention www.firstcontactconventions.com.au in Melbourne Australia.
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 .
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.
