Dan Decker (last seen in Episode 60) comes back to swap some ideas about why fandom affects different people in different ways– starting with very young kids and up through all stages of life.  He and I pull from examples such as Ghostbusters, Star Wars: Episode I, Transformers, and of course, Star Trek.

We also take a deep dive into why geeks get into things like classic TV sitcoms/dramedy and how it relates to our scifi fandom. Prepare for lots of cosplay talk.

Tiffanie Lovett is a figure skater based out of San Diego, CA.  A lifelong fan of science fiction, one day she felt the need to perform her ice dances to the music from Star Trek, and a new passion for fusing her art with scifi was born!  In this episode of Hungry Trilobyte, Tiffanie clues me in on the world of ice skating and the two of us compare notes on, not only Trek, but Babylon 5, Stargate, and the Olympics.

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.
