G & T Show STLV 2015 Coverage – Jarrah Hodge Interview
Nick revealed that he was wearing the skant for the interview. #DistractinglySexy
Jarrah is one of the four hosts of the Women at Warp podcast. The podcast was put together because of noticing that women in Star Trek started off in nurturing roles. There is, of course, no problem with this (Deanna Troi, for example, was a mental health professional), but it sometimes seemed as if women’s work on Trek was not taken terribly seriously. Doctor Crusher was the beginning of women getting more substantial roles and being treated more seriously, although they did not truly come into their own until Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Her co-host Andi in Chicago is watching Trek for the first time and so is seeing the franchise for the first time. Co-host Grace wrote a teaser for a Ferengi bodice-ripper. And co-host Sue is a big-time The Next Generation fan.
They are currently looking at the Ferengi feminist revolution, as that species has a rather unique view of its female members. Speaking of Deep Space Nine, Nick asked about what Jarrah thought about Ezri Dax. The entrée of the character was a bit difficult and her work as a counselor seemed to be undermined in a similar way to how Troi’s was in TNG.
The podcast also about the diversity of impressions being respected, e. g. impressions of Odo and Quark and other characters.
