Earlier this year I was asked, together with a whole pack of Star Trek luminaries, to take part in a Biography Channel Special focusing on Trek‘s Captains. Well, the word is out, and the two-hour Captains of the Final Frontier is set to premiere next week on Wednesday, November 3 at 9pm Eastern Time, with followup showings on Thursday and Sunday. The above link has all the details, so please watch it and let me know what you think!
The other folks interviewed for the special include actors Vaughn Armstrong, Denise Crosby, Dominic Keating, Anthony Montgomery, Kate Mulgrew, Robert Picardo, Tim Russ, and Nana Visitor; production people Ira Steven Behr, Rick Berman, Manny Coto, René Echevarria, Nicholas Meyer, Michael & Denise Okuda, and Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens; authors Kirsten Beyer, Keith R.A. DeCandido, David R. George III, David Mack, Larry Nemecek, and Geoffrey Thorne; comics creator Ken Penders; and Rod Roddenberry, the son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry.
I still have no idea how I ended up in such august company, but it was a great experience and fun to do, thanks in no small part to the special’s producer, the awesome Laura Marini.
