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.

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!

Samora’s official website is samorasmallwood.com.  You can follow her on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and imdb

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!

A44AFFC6-151C-4C23-8DCC-71352D3C52DF

The Screaming Chuy show is a podcast with a layout very similar to Hungry Trilobyte’s. Chuy is a guy who appreciates free-form conversation, good laughs, and exploring fandom anywhere you find it. He’s taken a bit of a different path with his show, with different types of guests, and he’s a great example of what makes podcasting such a versatile format. Here, he and I have a great chat about fandom, Rocky Horror Picture Show, horror movies like Halloween and Friday the 13th, Star Trek, and MST3k.

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.

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 done his best to promote causes like Type I, an organization dedicated to cutting down obstacles to diabetics having access to insulin.
