HTP Episode 121 – Allison Church

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.

You can follow Allison’s journey on her official website, her Amazon Author page, and elsewhere.

HTP Episode 100 – Larry Nemecek

8AAAB59F-17A8-4521-9BF9-5406DD8B4A7C

 

Larry Nemecek has been around the Star Trek fandom in so many capacities… as a writer, editor, podcaster, and even as McCoy himself in Star Trek Continues.  In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, we’re excited for the premiere of the second season of Lower Decks and amused by the joke about the Tom Paris collector’s plate… which made us remember the Collectible Plate fad of the 80s and 90s.  

That spins into a slightly deeper discussion of how fan trends come and go, and how generations of fans sometimes look at the same concepts very differently.  

Be sure to tune in to Larry’s podcast Portal 47 .  You can also follow him on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, and find all his info on his official website.
