HTP Episode 107 – Laura Banks



Laura Banks is known to Trek fans as the Augment navigator Wajahut in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, she and I discuss her experiences on set, what the fandom means to her, and how her character was developed in Trek fiction.  Specifically, I mention To Reign in Hell by Greg Cox. I also compare her account of the experience with what George Takei said in his book To the Stars.

We also venture into more real-world topics.  Recently, she was interviewed for an independent film about the legendary movie year that was 1982, as well as a book about the history of the development of Star Trek II.  She has a new movie called No Vacancy with Sean Young.  Laura shares her experience as an improv and stand-up talent, as well as a podcaster with a specialty in astrology.
