HTP Episode 113 – Jarrod Alberich Returns!

Jarrod Alberich comes back to Hungry Trilobyte (after discussing James Bond in another episode). Today he adds his perspective to our discussion of the connection between fandom and mental health. Jarrod has taught leadership courses in which the concept of Emotional Intelligence is a main topic. He and I take that and apply it to internet culture as a whole.

3DC272EB-BF95-45F6-A3A9-82EAEF5043E5

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.

Reece Brown is a new actor who just appeared in the movie Social Credit (where he was billed as Seth Carter). He and I talk about the value of alternate history stories, and then get into more personal discussion about films. Between Fight Club, Big Fish, and the occasional Star Trek reference, Reece has a lot of great insight into where he wants to go in life and how he wants to treat people on his way.

Adil Hussain is an accomplished actor, known to Hungry Trilobyte fans as Aditya Sahil in Season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery, as well as Santosh Patel in Life of Pi.  During our discussion, Adil treats us to an amazing analysis of how acting allows us to capture the moment, and he and I discuss how the arts have a way of transcending time, years, and places.  He credits a lot of his perspective to the book The Gospel of Ramakrishna, which I plan on reading ASAP.

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.

HTP Episode 084 – Peter David

Peter David is an extremely talented author, writing for many great franchises such as Star Trek, X-Men, Superman, Babylon 5, and many other worlds he created.  Peter is also a long-time fan of science fiction, and has a great perspective on how fandom changed from the early days of conventions though today.  In this episode, he and I have a great talk that includes the transition between Star Trek: TOS and Star Trek: TNG, and how the Vietnam War made for a different perspective between the two shows.  We also reflect on rivalries between fandoms, how it’s often an illusion, but also ways in which those rivalries can be very real.

You may have started to get hungry during our discussion of ribs and rib parties… if so, the Atlanta-based rib place we were discussing is Fat Matt’s Rib Shack . Fried chicken can be found at The Colonnade.

If you’d like to check out some of his books, consider starting with Q-Squared, Imzadi, or Pulling Up Stakes.  You’d also do well to check out his independently-published books at Crazy 8 Press, a writing consortium.

You can follow Peter at his official website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter.  For some extra content, you can back his Patreon account.

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. 

You can follow him on Twitter and on his YouTube Channel, BioTrekkie Explains!
