Samora Smallwood played Lieutenant Amin in Star Trek: Discovery.  She is also hard at work at her independent production, Gone, as well as encouraging creators near and far with her mantra, “Manifest Yo Sh*t”.  In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, Samora and I start off tackling heavy issues like human trafficking and internet hate, and take it full circle with lighter subjects like retro video games, James Bond, and using the internet to save the world.  Spoiler: Samora is on the right track!

HTP Episode 079 – Dr. Mohamed Noor

5B05F09E-E77B-41A7-AE60-0B189115D0E4

In addition to being the Dean of Natural Sciences at Duke University, Dr. Mohamed Noor is also a giant Star Trek fan, and has the opportunity to act as a science advisor on Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery.  Not only was he on the team that developed the scientific rationale behind “The Burn”, he and Dr. Erin Macdonald (episodes #13 and #51)  wrote a detailed article titled The Science Behind Discovery’s Burn that fleshes out the details for the science-minded viewers.

This episode of Hungry Trilobyte features he and I discussing how it’s now acceptable to use fandom in academia, whereas that was not always the case.  We spend a lot more time just hashing out scientific weirdness (and accidental accuracies) within our favorite Star Trek episodes.

John Billingsley is known to Star Trek fans as Dr. Phlox, and in this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, we do get to discuss a lot of the more fun aspects of the character (as well as some less-than-fun aspects of the makeup!). John then indulges me in talking about moving from acting to social responsibility, and using your means (whatever they may be) to help people in your community. Currently, he’s been making his difference at the Hollywood Food Coalition, an organization that addresses hunger.

HTP Episode 067 – Noah Averbach-Katz

2F9C56F2-37F8-4A7A-8969-4A4D7E0AB8BFNoah Averbach-Katz hit Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery with a POW! Playing the Andorian Ryn, his character has added a whole new layer of depth to our understanding of the future Federation as well as to the culture of Andorians. Noah has also connected with fans right away, embracing the Trek community and trying to give back to the fans as much as possible.

Noah has also done his best to promote causes like Type I, an organization dedicated to cutting down obstacles to diabetics having access to insulin. In addition, he and his fellow Discovery castmates have an online Dungeons and Dragons game running, which might lead to community-building efforts all of its own.

HTP Episode 054 – Laurie Ulster Returns!

12B950EE-371B-44F2-A347-C9C73424C3B2

First appearing in Episode 16, Laurie Ulster has returned to Hungry Trilobyte to talk about how fandom is changing in 2020… and unlike a lot of things in 2020, it’s changing for the better! She and I discuss how Star Trek is branching out in new creative directions and how to maximize your enjoyment of it. Or, if you’re not the type of fan who’s enjoying it, how you can redirect your fandom energy and still be as much of a Trekkie as ever. We also get into a pretty good chat about what it was like to be a fan in the days when being a geek wasn’t cool. Not to be missed is our discussion on how Ethan Phillips admit’s Neelix’s crush on Janeway, and Andrew Robinson’s views on Garak’s gay crush on Bashir.

One of Laurie’s best works is an interview with Connor Trinneer.  Here’s where you can check out the rest of her stuff:

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!

HTP Episode 012 – Lee Sargent (Lee Draws Stuff)

3ee1

Lee Sargent is a popular artist, known for his childlike interpretations of scenes from Star Trek, Dr. Who, and Stargate. Lee feels passionately about letting people enjoy stories on their own terms, that stories are about escapism and creativity. What I love about this chat is that we get to discuss the balance between an artist’s original intention and the audience’s vision. We also get to talk about Australia’s wildlife and doing cons outside the US, with such awesome events as Oz Comic Con and Supanova in his backyard.
