Slice of SciFi show #137, ready for download on Saturday, December 1 and on XM-Satellite Radioâ€™s The Sonic Channel on Monday, will have actor/producer/writer Walter Koenig and producer Sky Douglas Conway as our very special guests.
Walter is a legend in the sci-fi world, having played the beloved Star Trek character Pavel Chekov for 41 years and the Psi-corps agent Alfred Bester on the history making â€œBabylon 5″ series for four years. Walter is an accomplished actor, producer, writer and director with a very distinguished career in the entertainment industry.
His most recent project is one of his own creation called â€œInAlienable .â€ Sky Conway is the producer for the film, which Walter wrote and stars in. The movie, directed by Robert Dyke (â€Moontrap,â€ â€œAngels in the Outfieldâ€), also stars Battlestar Galacticaâ€™s Richard Hatch, Star Trek alums Marina Sirtis, Alan Ruck, Richard Herd, Gary Graham and J.G. Hertzler, as well as Walterâ€™s son Andrew Koenig, who played the Joker in the award-winning fan film â€œBatman: Dead End.â€ Other stars in the film are B5â€™s Patricia Tallman, Stargateâ€™s Jay Acovone, Judy Levitt and many more.
Walter and Sky will tell us all about â€œInAlienable,â€ which premieres online December 15; and maybe we can get Walter to also tell us a bit about his role in the Tim Russ Internet Star Trek miniseries â€œOf Gods and Menâ€ and his important work giving aid to Burmese refugees.
The rest of the show is chalk-full of news and entertainment, such as these stories:
We give you the latest update on the long-awaited audio series â€œStar Trek: Unityâ€ and tell you when to expect it on the Net. Fox is running a Terminator Poster Event and we tell you how to enter. And, the WGA may be on strike, but that doesnâ€™t mean writers have stopped pounding away on their keyboards.
Lots to talk about at the Movies this week with the new horror/thriller â€œTimber Fallsâ€ and the must see movie event of the year â€” â€œThe Golden Compass.â€
We have some great news for fans of a certain SF show on NBC. Letâ€™s just say, one geek just got an extension on his job at the Buy More. Fan fav James Marsters will make a special visit to Cardif; and Ben Stiller is ready to tackle the small screen with a new SF comedy he will direct, produce and write.
The future doesnâ€™t look so good for residents of â€œPlanet 51, as it appears their worst fears may be coming to pass. Director Spike Jonze is going wild with his next childrenâ€™s fantasy adventure film.
If all we had for you this week was Walter Koenig and Sky Conway, then weâ€™d already have the makings of a terrific show, but we have them both and loads more. So, this Saturday on the Net and Monday on XM, drop what youâ€™re doing, set the volume on high and prepare for a geek-fest as we bring you a great Slice of SciFi Show #137. See you then!
