G & T Show 24 – Trek Nation and The Star Trek Girl
The G & T Show episode 24 is now available for downloading. This week Nick and Teri discuss the new documentary by Rod Roddenberry, Trek Nation, with special guests StarTrekGirl and Xander. Before getting into it, they talk with StarTrekGirl. They follow up with a new Ask Dayton #8 – Twins: The Untold Story.
Nick is still looking for entries into his Kill Terry Shull contest. If he doesn’t get more entries posted, next week he’ll be singing songs from Grease. So post your stories in our forums by 11:59pm on December 31st. Speaking of next week, Teri will be out of town, and Xander will keep her seat warm until she returns. StarTrekGirl’s favorite Trek novel is Imzadi by Peter David. Then, Teri reminds us that Michael Martin’s interview is coming soon, so post your questions for him on our forums.
Following this week’s Ask Dayton, they give us a Star Trek Las Vegas update: Walter Koenig (Chekov) will be there. They also mention briefly William Shatner’s Raw Nerve, which leads to the YouTube video interview with Shatner where he compares Star Trek and Star Wars, the Carrie Fisher response, and Shatner’s rebuttal. Nick reminds everyone to tune into his show Impressions of Sound Wednesday nights at 9PM Eastern.
They begin the Trek Nation discussion with a number of notable squirrel moments, such as Degrassi Jr. High, Dayton Ward joined the chat room, and Nick’s revelation that he’s never seen Lord of the Rings, but has sat through all of the Twilight movies. Returning to the documentary, they point out as highlights the Michael Pillar, Ronald D. Moore, Rick Berman, and the JJ Abrams’ segments. Watch the interviews cut from the documentary on YouTube here.
The discussion devolves into a brief discussion of Star Trek porn and the reason why holodecks were invented. Teri then shares with us a tweet from Mary Czerwinski with a photo of 2 Dehners (Mary Czerwinski with Sally Kellerman). Support Mary Czerwinksi’s Make Me Dehner. Also, Nick has finished reading David A. McIntee’s Indistinguishable from Magic. He tells us a little about it without spoilers. He recommends the book.
Teri announces that a new book has been published. The book of Opposites is a Star Trek TOS Baby Book. You can read about it on Tor or get it from Amazon.com. With that they return to talking with StarTrekGirl and ask her thoughts on JJ’s Star Trek movie. It leads them to a discussion of the news for next movie which is due to be released in May of 2013.
Finally, they end this week’s show with Nick reminding everyone to post their stories on how they would kill Terry Shull for a chance to win a caricature by David Reddick. He also reminds everyone that Teri’s Fan Fiction Contest is still going on as well and to get your stories in by January 31st for a chance to win the Star Trek Original Movie Collection on Blu-Ray.
Teri finally announced that she is now the new columnist for Star Trek Online for Massively.com. StarTrekGirl wants everyone to check out her YouTube Channel, Twitter, and Facebook page.
