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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“Babylon 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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“InAlienable .Ã¢â‚¬Â Sky Conway is the producer for the film, which Walter wrote and stars in. The movie, directed by Robert Dyke (Ã¢â‚¬ÂMoontrap,Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Angels in the OutfieldÃ¢â‚¬Â), also stars Battlestar GalacticaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Richard Hatch, Star Trek alums Marina Sirtis, Alan Ruck, Richard Herd, Gary Graham and J.G. Hertzler, as well as WalterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s son Andrew Koenig, who played the Joker in the award-winning fan film Ã¢â‚¬Å“Batman: Dead End.Ã¢â‚¬Â Other stars in the film are B5Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s Patricia Tallman, StargateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Jay Acovone, Judy Levitt and many more.
Walter and Sky will tell us all about Ã¢â‚¬Å“InAlienable,Ã¢â‚¬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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“Of Gods and MenÃ¢â‚¬Â 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 Ã¢â‚¬Å“Star Trek: UnityÃ¢â‚¬Â 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 doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t mean writers have stopped pounding away on their keyboards.
Lots to talk about at the Movies this week with the new horror/thriller Ã¢â‚¬Å“Timber FallsÃ¢â‚¬Â and the must see movie event of the year Ã¢â‚¬â€ Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Golden Compass.Ã¢â‚¬Â
We have some great news for fans of a certain SF show on NBC. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t look so good for residents of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Planet 51, as it appears their worst fears may be coming to pass. Director Spike Jonze is going wild with his next childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fantasy adventure film.
If all we had for you this week was Walter Koenig and Sky Conway, then weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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!
