24 Hours of G & T: Hour 20 is now available to download. Check it out here. This hour we say farewell to Priority One and welcome James Kerwin and Kipleigh Brown. James Swallow continues to hang out with us for a little while longer. Sunseahl from Club 602 and Deyvid with Trek Radio continue their vigil with us. This hour we give away the Star Trek: Enterprise Complete Soundtrack CD Boxset.
We return from our break and bid adieu to the crew of Priority One. Before she goes, Kenna talks about their 250th episode and some of the changes they are bringing back to the show. They will be bringing back some new voices, introducing some new content, and will be doing some new sketches. Be sure to check out Priority One. James Swallow will continue hanging out with us for a little longer. Mike pulls James Kerwin and Kipleigh Brown into the call. We welcome them and introduce everyone to each other.
James and Kipleigh had been at Comikaze this weekend. Kipleigh mentioned she had an allergy attack. James suspects it was from something at Comikaze. They had gotten sick at Vegas as well. Terry tells James and Kipleigh about how his latest book Star Trek Titan: Sight Unseen frightened Kristen Beyer and Terry. We talk about the fan favorite Solanae, also known as the Fish Munks. Terry clarifies that it was the squishy balls of death and not the Solanae that had scared them.
Kipleigh talks about her role as Administrator Kumarka of the Lukari in Star Trek Online. Swallow plays STO and is interested in hearing about it. Kerwin mentions that the STO team tried to model the in game character after her a little bit. Nick tells Swallow that Kipleigh is married to Emo Philips. James shares a story about bumping in to him and seeing him on stage. Kipleigh has been reading about conspiracy theories. Nick tells her about Coast to Coast AM. James Kerwin admits to being on the show a few years ago and tells us about it. Swallow shares a UFO story with us. He, then, does his Jean Luc Picard voice for us that got Kipleigh all riled up.
The conversation shifts to trick or treaters. Emo was giving out candy. James had none, but that wasn’t unusual. Based on Mike’s prompting, Kerwin shares a story about how he recently became the Honorable James Kerwin. James is now a member of the Royal Society of the Arts because of his contributions to Star Trek: Continues. He talks about it.
Nick talks about drinking at STLV and having Kerwin and Brown carry him off to dinner. Terry mentions that the prize for this hour is the complete CD Box set of the Enterprise soundtrack. Steve plays both versions of the Enterprise theme song, called Where My Heart Will Take Me by Russell Watson. Swallow’s mother is a fan of Russell Watson and has all of his albums. It was also a Rod Stewart song Faith of the Heart and appeared in the film Patch Adams. They talk about the song’s title. Kerwin is a fount of information.
They talk about Kipleigh’s role as Jane Taylor in Enterprise’s The Forgotten. She does some funny voices. Mike cuts in with the announcement that Nick has to take a shot of vodka. Sandy Watson donated $100. They talk about Sandy and her daughter visiting our table daily at Vegas. We now have a five way tie for the big prize. We talk about the Commander-Level Ticket to STLV 2016 donated to the show by Johnny Snowball.
We have to say farewell to James Swallow. We thank him for surprising us and coming onto the show. James promises to tune in later to see if we started hallucinating. He’s the writer of many Star Trek: Titan books and will have a new TOS book The Later Fire coming out in early 2016.
Terry mentions that Allen is sleeping. The conversation shifts to Nick’s lurking on Facebook. We talk about the chatroom and Robert Reyes. We try to convince him to donate even more, including creepy hugs from Kipleigh. They talk about the reading of The Raven they had done earlier in the show. James says that the Simpsons’ version was the best version of it. The Christopher Walken version needed more cowbell. They talk about Walken’s performance in Jersey Boys and Peter Pan Live.
We talk and praise Janet as our Social Media Manager. We then talk about Steve and his insanity. Mike is in a hotel room for the show. Everyone thinks he’s really making meth. We are starting to struggle and the conversation shifts unpredictably from topic to topic. Finding some focus, Terry asks James and Kipleigh about Comikaze. They are not going for the final day of the convention. They promoted the show and screened The White Iris. Kipleigh wasn’t there because they wouldn’t let her park. Kipleigh does a Chicago accent for us that makes us laugh uncontrollably.
James talks about Star Trek Online and Chase Masterson’s role as Mirror Leeta. James thinks Mirror Kumari should feature the Chicago accent. They talk about Chicago style food and the cure-all for depression being a big thick tube of meat. At the con, all of the ladies of Star Trek: Continues was signing today. Michelle had brought snacks and they included hand-chunked soft and tender meat snack.
We wind up the hour to take a quick break.
But, wait. There’s more.
He is the co-owner of Busy Little Beaver Productions and is the producer and co-host for G & T Show and Gates of Sto’vo’kor. He’s directed voice actors, and produced and edited audio podcasts and dramas because he doesn’t have the face for video. He plays well with others and is always on the look out for the next project, the next thing, the next next. If he wasn’t working on something with a half dozen other projects waiting in the wings, somebody please check to make sure he’s still breathing.
During the day, he’s a mild-mannered computer repair man who dabbles in web design in his small, rural, Central California community. He lives with his lovingly dysfunctional family and loyal canine companion and spends most of his time in the closet concocting some hair-brained scheme or another. He’s got an unhealthy obsession with Lego video games, Klingons, and Star Trek Online that borders on the neurotic.
Despite all this, he still finds the time to write the words. Find out what he's doing here.
