Gn5c7ak7


Madison Spencer Engle, who first appeared on Hungry Trilobyte in Episode 10, is a favorite in the Star Trek Cosplay community. This time around, she and I discuss the new series Picard, its relation to Discovery and other Trek series, and what it’s like to live in the new golden age of Trek. What’s the downside of using a replicator? How big of a moment is it to see Guinan and Seven of Nine? In her words, we are such geeks about this!

Madison frequently does her cosplay to benefit such causes as Hope’s Kids and Walk for the Blind
