G & T Show SL – ST:C with James and Kipleigh is now available to download. Check it out here. On this edition of the G & T Show Supplemental Log; Nick, Terry, and Mike sit down with Director James Kerwin and Actress Kipleigh Brown for a conversation about some upcoming Star Trek: Continues News, STLV Convention Update, and even a STO rumor or two. Later, Emo Philips drops into the call only to Season One of TNG spoiled for him. Don’t miss the hilarity that ensues in this Supplemental Log.
After introducing themselves and their guests, James and Kipleigh, they quote Silence of the Lambs, which leads Nick and Kipleigh to talk about their musical Silence of the Frogs, while James just ignores the general insanity. Terry gets them on track by saying how much she loved episode 4, The White Iris. Terry and Mike cried. They talk about the episode, the actors in the episodes, and more. Vic Mignogna was responsible for casting the actors, some of which were referred to them by Mark Altman.
When Nick mentioned that TOS’s third season had its issues, James took umbrage with it and mentioned many of the great episodes in TOS’s third season. Returning to The White Iris, Terry appreciated the story and seeing how someone deals with the constant losses. Nick mentions, The Cage, and Mike mentioned the Enterprise episode Kipleigh was in as other Trek episodes that deal with similar themes. Terry also was pleased to see Kipleigh’s Lt. Smith “tap out” Chekov and get behind the navigation controls. Kipleigh hand is now famous.
The acclaim from this episode has been pretty great and they will be screening it at Vegas along with a teaser trailer for episode five followed by a panel with: Vic Mignogna, Chris Doohan, Michele Specht, Kipleigh Brown, Cat Roberts, along with some guest stars and crew at the AMC movie theater on Friday night at 11:30pm. The theater will have a cash bar this year with Trek-themed drinks. There are only 250 seats available, so get there early.
Terry asks what happened with the YouTube release of The White Iris. James explains that a take down notice had been posted by mistake. After speaking with CBS Legal, it was determined that CBS Legal had not ordered the take down and asked YouTube several time to reinstate the video and eventually it was. The video had remained online on Vimeo and the website. Mike mentions that they had been monitoring the situation but all they had to go on was rumors. James said it was nothing more than a misunderstanding. Kipleigh explained that when a fan fiction is pulled, people making fan films, fanfiction, and their fans are rightfully concerned because it could have long-running ramifications. However, CBS has been very cool about it. Terry mentions that we are fans of all fan produced fiction, and she would like to still have a podcast a year from now.
Nick asks about episode 5. James said episode five is done. They will be screening a trailer at Vegas and it should be released in the fall. He says it’s an ambitious episode, since it’s the first one taking place off the ship. He also mentions that Vic directed this episode. James doesn’t reveal who is directing episode 6 just yet. Nick jokes and tries to guess the premise of episode five, but James isn’t saying a word. However, he does encourage Kipleigh to mention the episode 6 news that they have. Episode 6 will have someone from Pixar heavily involved. That got their imaginations going with the dog from UP, Mike and Sully, the Pixar Desk Lamp, and Buzz Lightyear. Terry was pleased to learn that Pixar people are Trek fans. James mentions that episode 3 was screened at Pixar last year.
Nick wonders if anyone is keeping behind the scenes info on the production for a documentary later on. There was a five-part documentary on the Wired Channel last year, called Obsessed, that featured Star Trek: Continues. Other documentaries are also available on YouTube and Vimeo. James explains that they are too busy to do that stuff. Kipleigh jokes that she’s working on a tell-all novel and Nick offers to be their Documentarian. Don Houston and Kipleigh are their behind the scenes photographers for Continues. The conversation degenerates towards the inappropriate, which prompted James to say that Star Trek: Continues and their website are supposed to be family friendly. Nick blames Kipleigh.
They pull it together. Terry tries to get more information about episode six from James, but he can’t say anything except that he loves the script and has sent it out to the actors. Kipleigh and James both called the script awesome. Mike praises their work so far and states that if its comparable to anything else they have done, it’s already going to be a hit.
Terry shifts the conversation to STLV, where Kipleigh and James will be in attendance. In fact, Kipleigh will be at our booth, signing autographs. She will also be doing photo-ops with Creation, including one with Conner Trineer on Thursday. Kipleigh tries to make a joke, fails, and goes to the corner, which prompts Mike to quote Dirty Dancing. Nick asks if Emo will be there. He will be. Tickets for Kipleigh’s photo-ops are currently on sale and can also be purchased at the convention as well. James adds that Kipleigh will be glad to sign photo-op photos for free at the booth, where they can pick up other incentives, including a $2 off coupon for TribbleToys.com.
Kipleigh asks if Nick will be wearing the skant this year. She wonders if women can wear skants. Terry mentions seeing photos from Comic Con of women wearing skants. Nick can’t wait to show off his new ink. They joke about it being of Kipleigh. Terry brings us back to episode five asking for more hints. James reiterates that its off the ship, and there will be some cool guest stars in it. Kipleigh adds that it will have some action.
James mentions that they have another announcement, since they mentioned Kipleigh and Star Trek. Kipleigh breaks the big news on our show that she will be playing a character in Star Trek Online for Season 11! Terry squeed in joy. Nick will have to start playing again. He is dead to James for quitting. They talk about what spurred him to stop playing. James challenges Nick to PVP, since all of his gear is Mark XIV epic. Terry offers to do the play-by-play. James and Mike are geared and flying similar ships. Terry is actually excited for PVP. They play Romper Room and name off each of the STO devs. Kipleigh will be playing starting to play STO soon.
They talk about Alien 3. Kipleigh is an Alien fan and exchanges lines with Nick. Mike mentions that he went to school with the girl that played Newt. They trade Alien humor. Mike asks if there is a chance that in a future episode of Star Trek: Continues if we will see Kipleigh’s character go all Ripley. James tries to reign the conversation in when they start talking about Kipleigh in her underwear.
James has some viewer questions for Kipleigh to answer from the Star Trek: Continues Facebook page. The first question was in regards to her name and its origin. They talk about it and Kipleigh admits that she learned something new from the question. The next question asked why Kipleigh doesn’t tweet. She’s suffers from visiobibliophobia, a fear of social media. They encourage her to overcome it by just doing it. James suggests that she convert her Facebook page to a fan page and just post about her career there. They give her therapy on the air. The third comment wanted more development in her character. Kipleigh is for it, but its up to Vic. The next question asked about where Barbara Smith came from and where she’s going. Kipleigh goes over what is known about the character from the Original Series and Star Trek: Continues. She, then, expounds upon what she would like to see from the character’s history, where she’s at in the present, and what she wants from the future. The next question was in regards to how much of Kipleigh is in the character’s portrayal. She shares her experiences in the role in episodes three and four.
Nick asks if she’s a dog or cat person. She’s got cats now but she loves all animals. James’s family just rescued a new dog from a very abusive situation. He tells us about her and the challenges they face in her rehabilitation. They wish him and his new dog all the best. Kipleigh’s cat is named Worf, son of Zabba (her other cat), because he looked Klingon. She mentions that Worf even speaks Klingon whenever he spits up a hairball. Qapla’!
Although James tries to reign the conversation back to Star Trek Online, Nick is reminded of the Klingons of Long Island, which sparks another squirrel. He tells James and Kipleigh about 24 hours of G & T, their upcoming fundraiser for website costs, which will be held starting at noon Eastern on October 31st and run through noon Eastern on November 1st. Nick invites James and Kipleigh to join them. Terry tries to shift the conversation to Star Trek Online, but Nick jumps into his Klingons of Long Island spiel, which Kipleigh runs with. While Nick searches for the premise of KLI, James talks about STO.
The STO panel will be on Friday and will be followed by Meet the Devs at one of the Rio’s lounges. James suggests attending the panel and the meet and greet. Then, go back to your room, take a nap before heading out to the Star Trek: Continues screening and panel. James says that this will be his last hurrah for the next couple of years, because he’s getting braces. Everyone is surprised by the announcement. He explains the reasoning behind it. In order to cheer James up, Nick found the opening narration for the Klingons of Long Island and shares it with them. They talk about it and it’s worth a few laughs. Terry invites them once again to join in the 24 hours of G & T festivities.
She, then, tries to get the interview back on track by bringing us back to Star Trek Online, but James had already discussed what he wanted with it. Nick says that he saw Kipleigh’s husband, Emo Philips on @Midnight and asks if he’ll be back on. He will, but doesn’t know when yet. Emo sends his regards before jumping into the call. It was a real treat. Kipleigh wants Emo to wear a skant. They talk about the first Season of TNG and end up spoiling several episodes for Emo. They discuss some of the best and worst episodes of TNG’s first season. James drops some DS9 knowledge about the T’Kon on them. They get some of the episode titles confused. James praises Season 4 of Enterprise as one of the greatest seasons of Trek of all time. They agree. They disagree about some of the TAS shout outs in Enterprise’s Fourth season. They talk about some of their favorite episodes of Enterprise’s third season. Nick looses his cool about Enterprise’s cancellation before getting to their fifth season, which was supposed to be Romulan heavy.
Nick asks if Kipleigh did all of her own stunts. She does and all of her own beaming as well. They start winding down the interview. They are looking forward to more of this insanity at STLV. Nick compliments James and Kipleigh, saying they can cheer him up like no one else. Mike will be at Vegas this year and will be able to meet them in person. Terry mentions once more the screening of The White Iris and the fifth episode teaser trailer. Nick directs a directorial question to James. Kipleigh will be signing autographs at the G & T Show booth at STLV. Nick takes us out.
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.
