Author of numerous books, Allison Church comes to Hungry Trilobyte as part of the #Fans4Healing project. In this episode, she and I will talk about how getting into Star Trek fandom helped her understand how to understand her value as a person, as well as how to adapt to her life as a transgender woman. When discussing Star Trek, she mentions how much she loves both Discovery and TOS, and I offer a fan project called Star Trek: Aurora that might offer her a different perspective on the series.
On the topic of her books, we have a great chat about Dark Passenger, a horror story set during the voyage of the Titanic. What I love about this novel is that it’s genre fiction, but has enough basis in fact to be plausible. Allison looks into the artifact rumors that have been documented, and I mention my love of the paranormal lore (including a One Step Beyond episode) that surrounds this ship.
