24 Hours of G & T: Hour Nine
24 Hours of G & T: Hour Nine is now available to download. Check it out here. During this hour, we gave away a copy of Star Trek Season 8 Warped. Our guests for this portion of our fundraiser is Evie Vincent from Drunken Star Trek. Marv with Club 602 continues hanging out with us, and later, Deyvid with Trek Radio joins us as well.
We begin this short hour with introductions for anyone just tuning into the show. Mike is already starting to show some signs of weariness. Brett Klusaw joins them in the chatroom. Nick congratulates him for winning Star Trek: Catan and offers his condolences on the news that Nick is the one responsible for shipping it to him. Nick promises to ship everything out to him in a timely manner. We also acknowledge Samus in the chatroom.
Our next guest joins us. It’s Evie Vincent of Drunken Star Trek. They praise Evie for her use of cutting edge special effects and costumes on a shoestring budget. They talk about Drunken History which was the inspiration for her series. Mike interrupts the conversation to announce the prize for this hour of our fundraiser as Star Trek: TNG Season 8 Warped by Mike McMahan. With the fan fare complete, we joke that we spared no expense in the production of our fundraiser. Terry thanks CBS Products for this hour’s prize. Terry talks about the book briefly and draws a parallel to Evie’s show.
Drunken Star Trek uses volunteers to drink and tell the story. At the moment, it’s just her and her friends, but a list of people have volunteered to be the drunk telling the story. Terry asks Evie what episode does she really want to do but they haven’t done yet. She wants to be the drunk for the TNG episode Remember Me. However, she also wants to be Crusher for the episode and that would be breaking the one rule that they have. A person cannot be in their own drunk episode.
They have produced two complete episodes, and have the story recorded for the third. Nick recalls their interview at the convention and the trouble they had getting the drunk to say the final line of the first episode. Evie is unsure if she’ll be recording some drunken Star Treks at STLV next year, but if she does, G & T Show will gladly volunteer our services for the greater good. Mike reminds everyone that Nick will take a shot live on the air for every $100 donation.
Returning to Drunken Star Trek, Terry admits to watching the second episode and nearly peed her pants. They talk about the first episode and the creative Ferengi make up in it. Evie shares how the idea for the series came about and how she tried to find someone else to take on the project for her, but no one jumped on it. In the end, she did it herself. Nick says that it’s up there with Red Shirt Diaries.
The camera equipment is borrowed from friends and family. Everyone involved in the production are volunteers. Food and drinks are brought by everyone. It’s potluck! Drunken Star Trek can be found on their website, on their YouTube and Vimeo channels. Evie explains that the person that had agreed to be Data for their second episode cancelled on them at the last minute, so her father agreed to join them for the role. The set they used was her father’s office. Nick wants to do in the Pale Moonlight. Evie mentions that the next episode will be Darmok. Nick thinks he and Terry should do Code of Honor, but Evie doesn’t even want to touch that episode because of how racist the reenactment would be. Marv volunteers to be cast in that episode.
Nick reminds everyone that Mike insulted Evie at Vegas for her job. They talk about spa days in Star Trek and suspect Garrak would utilize the service. Evie’s dog says hello and they talk about Beans, her Yorkshire Terrier. Which prompts everyone to talk about their dogs.
Returning to Drunken Star Trek, they started in July. They are not small tasks. Evie hopes to get one out every month. Evie mentions her trip to Germany but was not able to get an episode recorded. They talk about her trip. They are excited to hear that her next episode is Darmok. And, she has lots of options for future episodes. If you want to help out with the show, contact Evie through her website’s Contact Us page. If someone wants to submit a video, they have submission guidelines.
They talk about her background briefly. Nick and Terry start bickering a little bit and Nick blames the fundraiser idea on Mike first and then on Steve. Nick suggests tired Star Trek. Mike suggests Hallucinations Star Trek before announcing that Deyvid from Trek Radio and Gates of Sto’vo’kor has joined them in the studio.
Nick asks if they will be doing other series or just TNG. Evie says that they are open to any series and that they have already recorded their own versions of the opening themes for each of the series. We can’t wait to hear the Enterprise theme. Evie is going to put together a supercut of their intros. Deyvid asks if they will be doing the animated series. Nick and Terry offer some ideas how it could be done. Evie isn’t sold on any of our ideas yet.
They talk about how well their episodes have been received. We promise to continue pimping Drunken Star Trek whenever a new episode comes out. Evie talks about the upcoming episode, Darmok. Harley, the storyteller for the episode, kept trying to use his notes. Notes can be taken, but they cannot be used during the filming. She tells the story of having to chase him around his apartment trying to take his notes away from him, and ended up taking a shoulder to the throat for her trouble. It’s a dangerous job being the interviewer.
We recommend everyone check out and follow Drunken Star Trek. They’re on Twitter and on Tumblr. We thank her for joining us and wish them a lot of luck with their show. This hour we got a donation from Rick Wheeler. He will be receiving a copy of Star Trek: TNG Season 8 Warped. As Evie departs, we announce that we have reached $619.43. Our next guest, Jen Usellis, the Klingon Pop Warrior is in the chat room and they pull her into the studio. They take a quick break to restart the recording and prepare for the next hour of the show.
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.
