"Coffee break by Rob Butler. So the ethics committee is coming to have a look then. Yeah. This is really annoying. I'm so close to the end of the experiment. Harley slept since a fired up two weeks ago. How did it happen? Ah popped out for a coffee. You had a full scale universe simulation at the ninety nine percent stage of its life. And you popped out for coffee would have been back well before I needed to check the final parameters but but. Well. Bumped into event from accounts and and will always liked the so we started talking and. Persuaded to come up for a date with me Oh good. I am so pleased that certainly makes up for the fact that you've wasted almost the entire budget for this department for the next two years. So you go back to your. And discovered that intelligent life had appeared within the simulation. which was obviously gonNA. Happen, as you have an identical model of our universe in which as we know intelligent life appeared at least some of its intelligent. But instead of making that little tweak to stop things at the bacterial level. You were all canoed alling with that by the coffee machine. We weren't exactly canoe. I don't care what you were doing look. Can we switch it off before the committee gets here fate accompli. Let them have an MP let let okay stop let them have an inquiry and when the dust has settled wing fired up again. Do that billions of them billions how long were you out there could noodling with this Yvette one hardly any time at all actually just that with the vastly inflated timescale inside the experiment and developing very rapidly I mean since I got back from coffee, they've gone from the Stone Age to spaceflight. So We'll the committee just let us stop everything and kill it all or. Horror of every possible accountancy horrid. Areas. Do. We have to keep the simulation running until these life forms die out naturally. That could bankrupt us. A really um fairy. Sorry I'm I'm a physics student. I'm not very good with all this biological stuff. Does that no that? mind. You they are bloodthirsty. Live a wreck in. If we don't pull the plug as a chance, they'll just wipe themselves out anyway Brealey. Well, let's hope. So that would certainly slough. Problem. I might even get to keep my job. Had they got nuclear weapons by any chance. They figured that out a few minutes ago the making great strides now. The. Interesting the closing in on the answer what answer the reason we set up the simulation in the first place the universe how it started what it is. They found all the same issues. We have dark matter, dark energy, the relative weakness of gravity and they nearly sussed it. They're gonNA solve the simulation for us. That's fantastic. This could get us out of jail. Why didn't we think of doing this in the first place? It's genius. But we get the answer before the committee arrives compound two seconds away. Come on my beauties come on. The did. And what's the answer they discovered there in an artificial containment chamber. Pretty pissed off. So they were in a simulation universe identical to ours identical. Yes. and. They found all those same problem areas that we're trying to resolve just the same. Yes and they discovered this was because they were in a containment chamber. The to stared at each other. Their Tales wagged thoughtfully from side to side. The End.

"Little busy right now. I'll get right back to the power core. Heading 25 Mark 300, sir. That heading will take us further into the planet's atmosphere. That's correct. We're going to do with your ability to keep a firm hand on the hell sir. I remember watching next generation religiously. And one of the things I didn't really understand until a little later in life was the fact that your character Jordy LaForge? Well, it was wonderful to see him on screen. We often saw him fixing things that were other people's mistakes, but we didn't really get to learn a lot about him as as a person we didn't learn. About his family and whether he had a partner. We didn't get to know all of that about him. Was that a frustration for you in that character? Well, you know, there was an episode where we met my mom played by Magic and Claire and my father was played by Ben Marine, Both actors who had prominent roles in roots. There's this amazing roots Star Trek connection. That no serious? Yeah, no, As you're saying, and I'm like, Oh, you're right. Because I did right after I got the job on Star Trek. I did a TV movie with Lou Gossett, where we reprise the Kunta and feather characters from roots And in that TV movie, where Kate Mulgrew, who was a captain on Voyager, Avery Brooks, who was The captain on Deep Space nine. And Tim Russ, who who played a Vulcan Tuvok on Voyager. There is this sort of Weird, inexplicable connection between roots and Star Trek, and I've often considered that that there is a line that goes from roots. Through Star Trek because I played Konta and I've played Georgie and at both ends of that spectrum, and in the middle is LeVar the reading Rainbow guy. So the The idea that everything is connected. And I did that I truly believe in is reinforced for me through that one observation. I'm Jen wind and you're listening to one, eh? We have another question here from us How they're wants to know what book have you read over and over and over..

"Although. I don't know where the KLINGONS are in compared. So all right. So if you think North America right like if the federation is the United States. Like you have you have Canada but imagine of Canada was like split into right down the middle right one side would be Romulus, the Romulo and territory and the other side of the Klingon territory. Okay. That and then the Kardashians and Bejarano that are like Mexico and but imagine of Mexico's stretched along the entire southern border not. Just. Yeah like imagine if it went that whole space and you know Bay jor would be like Guatemala like just just a little piece over here you know. Maybe. BIGGER THAN GUATEMALA BUT EITHER WAY I. Kind that's kind of about how so yeah. The romulus being on the other side but they're also part of the Alpha quarter. There will fair enough anyway but it was pillar who suggested bringing over and really he just said because this is kind of like a whole Maltese Falcon kind of. Where they have like the spies and these guys that they needed like some thugs to come in and run the money and he was like we already have those thugs it's learn basic like let's why would we bring to brand new people in that? We don't know anything about we don't have any backstory for we don't have any of that when we already work and introducing the main cast for this show plus they just introduce garrick like I stopped. Yeah. Exactly. Bringing people we already know that makes sense hands exactly. Exactly. So so they're back over. NO BARBARA MARCH March when it's Walsh while they loved coming into work on the show and they loved working with the production, they were a little dismayed that they weren't used more because most of their scenes were just with like one or two people and they really didn't get to interact with the cast very much and there were a little sad by that they said as far as everyone else they got to interact with it was all the same people from next generation. So so they're finding are anyway gold dinar. If you remember him the crowd asking Guy, he is played by guy named. Vaughn Armstrong. Now, Matt, you probably don't know anything about Vaughn. Armstrong however, no trekkies might be familiar with that name because von is GonNa come back as he plays no less than twelve different characters throughout star trek boy he is a main fixture among star Trek. Now, some of them are going to include three Klingons to Kardashians Romulo in and some species you haven't met yet met the horizon and of a dam and he's most recognizable and most people will know him as Admiral Forrest from enterprise which you will meet him eventually Matt. So so we're GONNA catch. Up with. Vaughn later, we'll see him several times We're not going to see all twelve, but we will see several of them Admiral Roman, small teeny tiny little role is played by lady named Susan Bay Matt This is not a name that you're familiar with and that's okay. Normally, I would skip over it completely she gets a nod here though because she insists that she got this role due to her existing relationship with Rick Berman and the casting director of the lady who was the casting Director d say nine not because she also happened to be the wife of Leonard. Nimoy. So take your pick but I point her out here. All right. Just two more we come down to Matt. You have met one of my favorite characters in all of Star Trek in fact, I put this guy as one of my top three most interesting characters covering the entire Pantheon of Star Trek, plain simple gear, and he entered in this episode he has played by guy named Andrew Robinson and as. The resident Kardashian on deep space nine you may or may not have guessed we are going to get a lot more of him is one of the residents even though he's not technically one of the main cast he will be back again and again and again and again, and he stays all the way through the end of the series. Now, as this is his first appearance, I do want to put. A little small know about his performance in here because I'm sure we'll talk about Andrew on a future show. He kind you're gonNA like this map at least I think he will he kind of pulls off a Dumbledore Grindelwald type thing you're matt in that in a in a recent interview for the Ds nine documentary called what we left behind which by the way is fantastic I highly recommend to everyone. I own the BLU ray of it. It's amazing. It's self funded and it's the only place where you're going to get hd footage of of deep space nine But Andrew Robinson reveals in there of how he played this character. He said that Garrett's interest in Bashir was purely sexual kind of the experience. This is his quote. He says originally in that very first episode I loved the man talking about. Garrick, I loved the man's absolute fearlessness about presenting himself to an attractive being the fact that that attractive human being was also a man doesn't make any difference to him and I will say I felt it came off a little bit creepy it. Yes. But kind of like Dumbledore in in the whole his relationship with Grindelwald was nar overtly clear it was just. Sort of it was just a subtext that was always there. I find it I really connect those two because I never pulled that vibe from the Garrick Bashir Relationship Garrick, just weird and garrick conic creepy and he's got this whole mystery thing behind him about what is really but but the fact that Andrew, like would say that that was his take on it. I just find. It does put Blaine. The way he played it to me. Yeah. Because like with that in mind. Because I did not necessarily read it that way right? Exactly. Exact. Knowing that he had that in mind his actions make more sense exactly exactly and I think it's it was just so well done. It was so well done by by Andrew Robinson and he's I. Don't I don't know in my research didn't say anything about how much they intended to use garrick but generally speaking when you get a character like this, they're not intended to come back a lot. Oh. Yeah. The there's characters like every series they write them in for like one or two episodes, and it's like Oh people like that or oh they they interacted with the cast better than we thought we thought they would bring them back. Back back, and it's like, Oh, now you're like a regular. Okay. Share you pretty much. You might as well just be on the cover of the DVD because you're a part of the cast. Now, that's that's exactly what Andrew Robinson is here with Garrick. So we're going to a lot more garrick. We're going to understand a lot more of your expect story in his deal as time goes on. Our main actor spotlight here is our first officer. It's a curious interest centric episode. So let's talk about Major Carolina Reese played by Nana. Visitor and yes, it is pronounced Nina not? NANNA and. I've seen the name in the credits that I. I. wondered a little bit. I. It is an apparently Avery Brooks. The number captain or commander system was very peculiar about making sure that people onset pronounce her name correctly. So Visitor visitor is a stage name that she took her last name is Tucker and but it it is like an old family name from way back up. But she did take that. She comes to us with a very heavy stage background though including being cast in several. Broadway. Shows back through the seventies and eighties all throughout the eighties she did a couple of soap operas a few other short-lived shows a whole lot of guest roles several with fellow trek alumni. But when she came to audition for the role of Major Kira in the early nineties, she says that what? Attracted to the role was that Kiro wasn't a mother, a wife, a prostitute or a killer although she's terrace..

"Heading to five three, zero, zero Sir that heading take us further into the planet's atmosphere. That's correct. We're GONNA lose the. People on the hell I sir. I remember watching next generation religiously and. One of the things I didn't really understand until a little later in life was the fact that your character George La Forge while it was wonderful to see him on screen. We often saw him fixing things that were other people's mistakes, but we didn't really get to learn a lot about him as as a person. We didn't learn about his family and whether he had a partner, we didn't get to know all of that. Him was a frustration for you in that character. Well You know there was an episode where we met my mom. Played by Madge Sinclair and my father was played by Ben Vereen both actors who had prominent roles in routes. There's this amazing roots Star Trek connection that. No seriously. You're saying and I'm like, Oh you're right. because. I. Did. Right after I got the job on Star Trek? I did a TV movie with Lou Gossett where we reprised the Clinton and fiddler characters from roots, and in that TV movie were Kate Mulgrew who was a captain on Voyager Avery Brooks who was the captain on on deep space nine. And Tim Russ who who played a vulcan to vodka on voyager there is this sort of weird inexplicable connection between routes and star. Trek and I've often considered that that there is a line that goes from routes through Star Trek because I've I've played Kuntar and I've played Jordy and at both ends of that spectrum and in the middle is Lavar the Reading Rainbow Guy so the. The idea that everything is connected. An idea that I truly believe in is reinforced for me through that one observation. Well. We have to take a quick break. We'll have more with Lavar Burton including more of your questions right after this. This is one a from w. a. m., U. and NPR. Everyone loves pistachios and Pistachios Love Water and California doesn't have enough water. So how do farmers figure out who gets grow which? Economics, of course, on the next episode planet. Money. Summer School. We explain how we all get along classes every Wednesday on planet money from NPR. Back, now, to our conversation with actor director and author Lavar Burton, we have another question here from US Heather wants to know what book have you read over and over and over. Interestingly enough. It's. It's it's roots. It's Alex Haley's roots. Because for me, it's just a masterful. Expression. From a master storyteller. And I don't know whether it's because of the numbers of times that I've I've read roots or. Just the the powerful presence that Alex Haley has an in my own life. But when I read and this isn't true for any other writer when I read. Alex's words I hear his voice in my head. I hear the rhythm I, hear the cadence I hear the Tumbler I hear and he's Like he's in my ear while I'm reading his words. And for me, an avid reader is a singular experience was just that I suppose why keep going back to that novel. For that sense of connection to a man that was. So instrumental in in in in my life. You know as I listened to you. Talk and how you have. This connection to. Multiple. Generations. I. Think you're you're in a unique position speak to this moment. Because some of the people who grew up with reading rainbow, our parents now themselves. How how do you help help kids navigate this moment when there's so much? Confusion and upset, and they're feeling isolated from their friends. I talk about the transitory nature of. Of, where we are moment, will pass into another moment. That is inevitable. It's the way of the world it's the way life works. So my my my suggestion, I. My encouragement is to be in this moment knowing that it's going to pass. Right. and. Just hang in there. Hang in there, this will all pass in the fullness of time and what we take from this moment and applied to the rest of our lives is really the most important thing we can be aware of. So. Be here now. As uncomfortable as it may be but know that this discomfort is going to go away things will get back to more of a sense of what? We have come to rely upon as normal. But this is where we are right now. When you think about the stories that you've read. and. The stories that are are still left untold. Where can you? Add your voice to that because I'm so accustomed to hearing you read other people's work. But what's the story that you Lavar Burton? Uniquely have to tell. Well. It's interesting that you should say that one of the things that's kept me busy during this this time of of lockdown. Is Developing projects with my company Lavar Lavar Burton, entertainment and preparing them. For. Launching them into the world and I've I've decided to do my very first documentary. As a filmmaker. Been Directing for many years I started my directing career back in the days of Star Trek and it's one of the ways that I continue to make a living as a storyteller. And so I'm going to tell the story called two front war and it's the story of Vietnam veterans or Vietnam black soldiers in in in the Vietnam conflict who fought a war in the theater of war in Vietnam because Vietnam was the first war where America's sent a fully integrated fighting force in to battle. And then he came home and fought the war for civil rights battle for civil rights in in in America's inner cities. So this idea of a two-front war and and has an awful lot of residents in this. Present moment we find ourselves in and so it's a story that I'm really I feel like I'm. particularly. Qualified to tell I'm a child of the sixties I was born in nineteen, fifty seven and when I was in the first grade John Kennedy was assassinated Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy were killed in my fifth grade here in elementary school. So I have lived through some of the most tumultuous moments in America's recent history. And the Vietnam War was certainly one of them. It was it was a part of our our lives every day between you know in. Highschool. I. Hope you'll come back and talk about the documentary when you're ready. Thank you John. I really appreciate you wanting to speak to me today. Will leave with this tweet from Brad who says listening to Lavar Burton right now is revitalizing me in. So many ways truly a role model for Sol I. Forget how deeply I love literature sometimes but listening to him talk reminds.

"Every time I do I have a lot of places that I go over and over and over again and people have said. I don't know it sounds as though as the first time you ever said it when you say these things. But it's it's the the repet- repetition and being able to bring life to a character using that repetition. Now when you get to the film you've got a whole different set of tools but it still bringing that character to life I'm I'm I'm pretty good at both But you're right. I do really like being on stage. The other thing is I'm a solo performer. Most actors go on stage with an ensemble at least three or four of the people if you get in trouble. There's somebody there save you if I get in trouble. I'm on my own unique stagefright of you do next. Oh but you've got this you got this and you can handle this but you brought up something okay so you also have done acting on television. So let's talk about the gun. Oh well my favorite was because they were the best rules that I had. I'd had a couple of roles on spenser for hire back. That's a long time ago now but I played a bad cop. I was a cop who is supposed to murder the guy that he was guarding. And I got an I get into a fight with Hawk and it kind of a good story because an interesting story to me anyhow. We're doing this fight and rehearsing the flight in talking to Avery Brooks. Who is the key to the plate? Hawk and I said this doesn't work you. We can't have the fight. Go this way. And he said don't worry about it. Just just just do it. What they say and I did and About two weeks later I get a call and they said can you come back? We want to Redo the fight because it didn't work because they had him killing a cop. Well you can't have this very tough Black Guy. Kill a cop and not. Have Somebody get upset about it? Got To have a whole thing over again and then my other episode of Spencer a day actually was on it probably twenty twenty times over the years but mostly his background but the other one I had actually had a little bit of a falling out with the casting people because I had had to leave an audition before they actually audition me because I had the show and big. Somebody got mad at me at the casting company in the headman called in for a long time and finally get called in and there. When I get to the audition. They're looking for a seventy year old short Greek man. Oh now and I was thirty five years old six foot tall and finish and I got the part. Just stop right there because I want to share something really important with the audience because I always try to ensure that the audience is equipped with some things every episode and. This is one of them. Do not let something intimidate you. You might see a parameter that says this is what we want but that does not always mean that that is going to stop you from succeeding in something that you want to go after. Okay I just WANNA I wanNA point that out right there. That's really really important. Now you do have to be a little bit careful because if you go to too many additions that you're not appropriate for the oil. Get really mad at you. This was this. You're you're right. And anything in life just gnarly pursue what you want to go after and there's a lot of different. There's a lot of different things that can happen. Just keep pursuing what you WANNA do and try to be the best that it can be. Hopefully you'll be better than everybody else and you'll get someplace. I don't know where it does work to your advantage. Keep pursuing okay. Thank you bye now but no one of the problems that I have is. I get easily distracted so people say I have a very short attention span because I I can concentrate at certain times but I get easily distracted so we were talking about. Oh we're talking about for higher and So I did get that role in. I've done lots of others mostly of little independent films Then I've got one that's supposed to be coming out that I I had a small role in That that I play a boat harbor boat guy charge of all the boats and harbor and things like that but I like I like doing small independent movies. Sometimes you can get really good roles and when you're in Boston we usually don't get the big roles where always going to be a supporting actor one type of this. I liked to do the little ones because then I don't have to be supporting actor anymore. Fun Yup the small independent films are fine. You get to really know the set you get to really interact with a lot of the Other actors that are in there. You get additional part. Sometimes you get to you really to learn a lot about what goes on in the industry as well I do might working with small independents. The downside is that a work with some really talented young directors and as soon as they do a film here then they go to Hollywood every two anything with them again. Yeah so that's someday so talking about that too though that is knowing what your goals are I mean. Do you WanNa Work. Small and just kind of maintain a circuit on independence. Are you looking to pursue big screen to the screen is is? Is it more of a hobby? It's a hobby. 'cause you get paid a low. I get paid fairly well from my live shows because I've been doing for so long and so many different places but I really am alive. Stage actor first and foremost so the movies. I do partly just keep practicing it. It you're stretching your your abilities you go out and do things that You might never especially in the small phones. I can do roles I might never have gotten cast in no matter what someplace else but in the small film I can do it. I love this. I absolutely love him. I love what you're doing.

"Well the best before the break we were talking about Captain Archer and how I've kind of warmed up the guy over the years he's super wholesome. He's a sweet dude who is just trying to care for his people mentally and emotionally as they are traveling among the stars and being some of the first explorers in their era. So I really like where he's coming from with that and he's definitely grown on me with subsequent watches over the years. Maybe I'm getting soft in my old age but I do really appreciate Scott Vacuoles. Captain Archer the older that I get so now. We're going to talk about captain. Sisko Benjamin Sisko was the commander of the space station deep space nine. And who's played by Avery Brooks? I really do like Cisco quite a bit. I know January and Picard or my favorites. But Hey you gotta pick a favorite so here. We are the increments against between each of my favorites though is not by that far. I love all of these. People Cisco was very firm but also very fair. I really enjoyed that about him. He was very much bereft in away from losing his wife and he didn't really want to command after that point he just kind of wanted to take care of his son. Cisco is happiest when he is thinking about playing baseball or he is thinking about cooking with his father back home and I think that that is very beautiful in a way I love that. He's a single dad too. So most of the other starship captains they don't have any kids but Cisco starts out with a child and he's like okay. I'm going to be on a space station. I'm not really super stoked about this. But it's going to be more stable to raise my son than being on a starship. Perhaps and he ends up. Having to assume command in an area that is ruled by the Kardashians so Cisco ends up in the leadership of the station and he's embroiled and all of these politics in the region and having to deal with spiritual or religious components as well as political and military components of. What's going on? I really enjoyed seeing how this worked out for him. I was honestly a bigger fan of Babylon five and Babylon five in deep space. Nine get compared to each other a lot. More than deep space nine does to the other star Trek series but I do still very much like Cisco so he is just kind of a reluctant leader at this point which I really respect. He is a man who is doing his job out of duty rather than a desire to be the best necessarily or to climb the ranks. I suppose is a better way to put that. He ends up being named emissary of the Prophets. And in this way it is a lot to handle. So he's now a sociopolitical leaner of the space station. He's having to deal with civilians and federation personnel and Kardashians NBA Jordan's people who tend to hate each other and it is a lot of work for him he's also having to regulate whatever the heck that Cork has going on that week quirks shenanigans of the week and see what he's able to stop versus what he should allow out here and this kind of lawless place so I really enjoy seeing his interactions with all of the different characters. I love his relationship with Jazzy DAX and taxes former hosts curzon DAX. It's very interesting to me. I love the general concept of deep space nine which is also why Babylon five so much. Y'All know I love socio. Politics said this one is really fun for me. Most of the reason why this is not my favorite star trek kind of stems from some of the character choices and plotline choices. They made along the way but overall it's a really great show and I like how weird deep space nine is so all of the other shows us the holidays for pretty much the same purposes on deep space nine. They're really no-holds-barred. Because you get to see civilian purposes for it as well. That would not really fly in the military aspects. It's a lot of fun but Cisco is also trying to be a dad and he's always kind of overworked. He has jake running around and growing up and getting in the shenanigans with dog when Cisco is also trying to run an entire space station and deal with these local galactic politics. It's a lot for one dude to deal with because he's also involved with the being of the profits. It's a lot people kind of view him as almost a messiah in some ways so a lot of the deep space nine stories really require him to react to a lot of situations rather than to be proactive and many ways so he is having to deal with quirk running black market events under his nose and that ranges from running the Khawla sweets as some kind of Porno Mart to also you know essentially scanning other people who were on board and using their likeness in the porno sweets and that makes it extra complicated and kind of messy but also quirk is running all kinds of stuff through the black market. He's running goods. He's running services he's also probably cheating at Dabo most of the time. It is a big mess overall and you have oto trying to keep up with Kirk. And then they get super combative with each other and Cisco is just I feel like that man constantly has a headache and he just looks like he constantly has a headache but I love that about him. He's kind of like the dad of this entire starship. And he's like I have way too many kids kind of like the old woman who lived in a shoe but dude and everyone is actually an adult? They still are not great at listening or following. Any of the rules. Cisco can really handle anything but he has to handle an awful lot and you can see it way on him he ages kind of a United States president in many ways poor Cisco Donkey wrong every Brooks look flawless. But I mean the like spiritually the Mantle. He is carrying is very similar in that way to me. These space nine also has a lot of moral grey areas which I absolutely love star. Trek has generally chosen most of the right answers over the years and most of them aren't super upsetting but in this case in deep space nine. Cisco is forced to make a lot of these decisions. Were there are no right choices. There are only best choices and in that way it reminds me of Jack. O'neill I really enjoy the way that Cisco has to do a lot of soul searching before he comes to his decisions but once he comes through his decisions he does not turn around. That is something that I strongly identify with. I take a long time to make my own decisions and I like to weigh all of the variables before I do so but once I do make a decision in his final and decisive and I am not going to second guess it and I am not going to look back. I very much love that about Avery Brooks portrayal of Cisco and I think that he would be a great boss. I need to be able to respect my boss in order to answer to someone. That's why I do a lot of contract work but if you are going to have someone telling you what to do. I think Cisco would be a really great boss for that. You may have to end up looking the another way for some things. You might not always agree with him very similar to how Sam Carter does not always necessarily agree with Jack O'Neill but she respects him and she understands that he makes his decisions for a good reason even if she disapproves or disagrees with them. You don't have to agree with Cisco but you do end up really respecting the man. He will do whatever he asks. Do for the greatest justice for the greatest amount of people. He may have really get his hands dirty and I especially love his monologue where he is speaking to the computer. And he's doing his captain's log regarding how he had to lie and being accessory to murder and everything else in order to make sure that the galaxy stay safe and not at war and then at the end of it. He's like computer. Delete that log and I really love everything that that scene says about that man. It's absolutely beautiful as a work of fiction and I think it would have been just a striking in literature as it was on the screen so I am a huge fan of Cisco and the way that he has written even if he is not the very top of my list for my favorite I very much respect the man. We're going to go on another break and when we come back. We're going to talk about Kathryn Janeway. Tv has changed over time. Streaming has become the new norm.

I was out. and I've been in may be the story would have gone more my way. the people who were producing Spencer. had been actor all set. the place Spencer as we know it was our.

I am I would have been a bit chubby in one of those one size fits all uniforms that Star Trek was famous for. and I always practice by saying Spence that's it that's all right. and and that sometimes when you drive around town especially in the the Charles street area where Spencer had his office if you recall of believe was a fire station he has three different offices. he had one. in the fire station he had one in Charlestown and in the original episodes he had an office almost on the corner mass in Washington. well business was pretty good for private eye in the eighties was nice nice ones all right we've got two people calling they've called in there now on hold courtesy of rob anyone who wants to take those other two lines I expect the phones to be jumping with the subject do so six one seven two five four ten thirty or eight eight eight nine two nine which is WBZ ten thirty Jordan I we will be back after these messages by the way Ron what's that's just what I wanted to know time and temperature here WBZ twelve seventeen and fifty five degrees so they open their big miles and out came.

"Talk. This is the mall Kelly show. I'm speaking with IRA Steven and also the Mello Folsom the new documentary what we left behind looking back at Star Trek, deep space nine is going to be in theaters. Yes. In theaters just days from now may thirteenth is part of fathom events. I'm quite sure this is where you come in this falls under your umbrella. Tell me about the event how did they come together? And what should these tricky fans and non tricky fans expect I think what some people might not know as this project. It's been going on for six years something we've gone through many iterations on. It was only about two years ago that we've created an indigo crowdfunding campaign with about ten thousand. Uber fans come in and give us the support in the money that we needed to make this from an hour long documentary to a full feature length nearly two hour film. And that support also allowed us to do about fifty new interviews with cast brought everybody back together for a got everybody in. In this. We got just about everybody when we say in the documentary that Avery Brooks declined to participate. New interviews, but he was very much a part of the process. He talked with us as we were doing film. You know, he's he's part of the inspiration truly for the project in the first place. So his spirit is very much felt and he's he's an archival footage. And he's in actual new remastered footage from the TV show from the nineties. So in addition to all of these talking heads, which we really wanted to not have the main part of the film about there's also all these other elements to it. There's a writer's room season eight where we bring back IRA and the rest of the team to create this vision of what a future episode could be if it were to ever take place, and we've actually put that throughout the film and animated it. So it's a very exciting sort of new episode of deep space nine, and then I think the other thing that people may not be expecting as this high definition remastered footage for the first time, we're bringing the film negative from the TV show from the nineties, and we're remastering into this high quality high pitch. Pre-digital digital. This is thirty five millimeter film scanned at the time. Four tape for TV and while the quality that is there originally was has always been there. It's never been seen in this format. The TV's of the nineties are just not gonna pick up on that quality in the transfer that they were doing it in the nineties was not gonna pick up on that. So this is the first time to see crystal clear on the big screen. It's just a fantastic way of you. I know there's a point where you get a lot of these actors together in the same room, and he started telling stories they start remembering good memories, bad memories. But I've noticed that there was this dynamic of having them all in the room, which was pretty powerful. What can you tell me about that? Well, those interviews were done when we were still a little our duck, and we still finding away and I had never done it before. So I didn't really know what I was doing. But I knew what I like. And I thought just to sit down with the actors alone, which I was going to do anyway. I thought okay, I'll get something from that. I mean, the reason that Dave's opponent who's the other director and exact producer on the stock. Wanted me involved was because he knew the actors talked me in a slightly different way than they talked to someone. They would just hire to be the interviewer. But I also thought let's get all the leads all Maine cast actors together, and then get all as many of the recurring characters of which we had legions. We had so many recurring characters on the show, which what helped make it. So so interesting and see what would happen put him in a room or little libation for everyone. And just see what would happen. Just see where it goes. And it went into some really interesting places. When I go back and look at the transcripts and read them, I would love people to get to see more of those interviews goes the interaction sometimes pretty interesting on every level. Did you? See anything in those interactions or just say in the raw footage where one of the actors or baby. You've said, okay. I can't let that out there. That's a little too personal little too much or little too controversial. Or you just made an executive decision. I'm going to protect this person. Because I know it's not going to be received in the spirit maybe in which it was uttered. I don't know so much about protecting people. I mean, I think that one of the things we cover in the documentaries that everybody has their own truth. That memory is very faulty. And I think that so many of the stories that people were telling didn't necessarily line up with one another. And I think that we've made a point in the documentary when we had multiple views of story to include them to kind of actually create this humorous element of people kind of going back and forth. That's not true. That's not how it happened. But as far as stories that we couldn't let out there are there are certainly put another way. Who who who just tell me that? Well, you know, visitor and Alexander Siddig had a child on the show. So I think that'll speak for self there. I'm just gonna let that go on by. I'm not even to but we'll come back to you. Tell us about may thirteenth fathom events. What specifically can people do to see this? Well, they should definitely go to their local sentiments if it's playing it's playing over eight hundred theaters throughout the US and also a number in Canada and hopefully later on beyond that internationally, but we would encourage people to go to fathom events dot com for tickets or check out their local AMC or Rico or one of those chains as well. You over there almost grinning when I was trying to go kind to telling something that he should not have told on air. But I know that you were on set for all these moments. How honest do you believe that these actors were in the room, how much do you think that they left out from your perspective? Well, how honest do they have to be? I mean where does Steve leave off? And just nasty tit for tat take over. I think that one of the surprises. If you ask me one of the things that these interviews brought out everyone when the interviews began at the same thing to me. I don't remember anything. Don't ask me. Don't ask me things that happened in don't ask me names -sarily volley actors or all the characters you know, that they played you could tell it was a lot of stress sitting in there on their shoulders before they sat down once. They sat that some of. These interviews went for three hours. That's the thing about being me. They're going to stay as long as I want them to stay. It's just understood that we're gonna get in as deep as we can. But you know, I don't know if you know that was the stock you mentoring a few years ago that they've Sapone made a called chaos on the bridge, which I was interviewed for about next generation, and that was Bill shot near his attempt to go deep into the truth behind the legend, gene Roddenberry. And there was a lot of things revealed and attitudes revealed the women to shock people. And I don't want to do that. You know, that'd been done already in a Star Trek documentary. I didn't see the need for that. And because as the film went on ultimately, I realized the film was really from my point view in to a large extent. Even though I kept the nine, but that's the case. I don't want my point of view to encompass calling people out or saying things about people where they couldn't defend themselves. And again as I said it's twice. Twenty plus years ago memory is faulty which we talk about it in the duck. So that's not what I wanted to do with with what we left behind if you're just tuning in. My guests are Stephen bear. Who you just heard and KYW Folsom? We're talking about what we left behind looking back at Star Trek deep space nine and in-depth the at the show it's fans and it's ongoing. Appeal is going to be premiering in theaters all around the country on may thirteenth is part of fathom events. Gentlemen, when we come back in the last segment heavy for a few more minutes.

But I can't remember the name of the singer who sang that song though, Andrew what's name of the singer. He's going to look it up just for you. Because you wanted to know. Ask for it. And I hear that song. And it made me think of the TV series that was kind of spawned. The fall guy Ben to margin was a singer. Okay. And the bent the ENT Meighan be T, bent Meighan. The fall guy Lee majors show was basically Hooper put into the small screen very much so very much so and Hooper who who Hooper turned into a I forget whether you use a private eye or a bounty hunter or maybe both. But. Little of each. But you know, that, you know, Glenn, Glenn art Glen Larson rest, his soul knack for, you know, taking very well known movie properties and turning them into the television shows battle star galactica Star Wars. You know, the fall guy sort of Justice was the count of Monte Cristo lot. Lot of other a lot of other examples. That's what helped make Glen Larson's wallet. Fatter. Very much so very much. So, but I I have a trivia question for you. Sure. In the movie Hooper. Yes, Burt Reynolds was the stunt man for an actor played by what well known sixties TV star. I'll go you one better Adam west, and it was a JAMES BOND like movie because of even had a JAMES BOND like title, and we we talked about this last night. It's not that. I am looking it up, but it came up in conversation last night. The spy who loved me. No, the spy who laughed at danger. And Adam west was playing it to the hilt as the smug actor playing a popular movie spy. And he he was very good. It was it was it was not a big role. But he made the most of it, and it it it was one of the few. It was one of the few times that you know, the notoriety of Batman did not hurt him. True. I mean 'cause that was during that during that, you know, that that funky period of of of his career where you know. He he he he was he was getting a lot of good movie roles or even TV roles, and when that came along those good role, and you know, it a paycheck. Well, it was good paycheck. And I would like to see him do more of that. And do you remember who played the movie director in the movie? Oh, he is like a spoiled brat. I want that jump. I wanted. I want that. I don't care about the budget. Robert, the comedian, Robert clown, Robert. That child of the fifties. That's right. And and Kerry Terry Bradshaw had a great role in the bar scene. Yes. He did. You know? I don't remember. Whether it was Terry Terry Bradshaw with to pay or Terry Bradshaw. You know fans to pay. But it was you know, it it was it was seats in the movie every now, and then some director who I'm sure was of a football fan of Terry Bradshaw. Back in the day. They let Terry Bradshaw in a movie with a strong role. Yeah. And I'm trying to think of the movie where Terry Bradshaw. Did a nude scene. You you saw his bomb? And oh, it'll come to me. Failure to launch with Matthew, mcconaughey. Oh, okay. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I vaguely vaguely remember that. I was I was going. I was going in another direction because you know, while we're on the subject of football, Burt, Reynolds course, played college football. I believe at the university of Florida. Yeah. Here's a hurricane Florida state. Florida state. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And I believe he wants there in the late fifties. But about ten years later, another Florida state alum, they're they're the gator's, right? Yes. I think they're the okay, the, okay, another gator name, Robert York are about to mention his name. You beat me to it. And if I remember correctly Burt mentored him, really, I believe he did I didn't realize there was a connection between the two of them. I believe well, Bert, Bert as I understand gave back to Florida. You know, he built I believe in the nineties. He built a theater. He built it on the campus of Florida state. But he built it in the city where you know, he spent a lot of his time the last ten twelve years if I remember correctly. And the funny thing about Burt Reynolds and Robert Urich. Robert Urich had more TV series in which he was a principal than any by the yells. I think it's like sixteen seventeen that's a lot TV series. And it's I speaking of the tonight show. I believe I okay. I yeah. This this would have been one Jay was hosted gum. It was sometime in the nineties mid nineties Leno introduces Robert Urich. He's got he's got seventeen TV shows more than any other actor. And so and so when you're you're you're the seat on the couch and Jay Leno than editor actor and the audience breaks into applause, and and your wave them down saying. I appreciate it. But not all of those series were very good. I would I would I would love I would love to have just one or two series. You know, as you know, one of them Ron running for a while. But but of those shows he had some good shows, you know, some some, but this is another congress. We we can have this is a whole other topic.

Well, he was in soap the first season and then kill darkness character. And he was in swat. Which on the why they brought that back a year or two ago. He was in Vegas. He was in a show called gaveling. Which is a JAMES BOND type is show. I think he left soap because he was I think he was I think it just signed to do Tabitha. I think that was in production, right? Same time. So he did the thirteen for soap. And then he went into production of Taboada Tabitha. His best known shows are are still runs occasionally on decades and Spencer. And Spencer Spencer. You do a very good hawk, Spence. I love that show. Love Avery Brooks. I mean, I like Robert I like Robert Urich Robert Urich was very under appreciated actor. He was like the David Janssen of our generation good. But example. Yeah. But as much as I like, Robert Urich in that show Avery Brooks steals it from him. I'm gonna tell you my spencers store. I have just enough time to do it. And we messed up and a lot of people do this between. Miami. And Florida state. Florida state Seminoles and the Miami hurricanes Florida Gators, so I hope people out there. Somebody called in must be football college football junkie. Hope your team won today. But anyway, the TV show Spencer was filmed here in Boston. And I was still working as a state employees in those days. My office was next to the film bureau's office, and the film bureau was working hand in hand with the setup for Spencer which hadn't. Chart the pilot yet there are all set to shoot the pilot and the actor who was also slated to play hawk back down at the last minute. So they need to know that true story they needed a black actor. Who had a deep voice who would be comfortable in front of a camera. And one of the people who worked in my office said will what about Morgan? And I got the call to go and speak to these people. Call came on Friday. I think in a chance to return the car until Monday, I returned the call. They had already found some guy named Avery Brooks. Now, could I have held a candle to Avery Brooks. Not my best day at the fact that I was considered for that. And I was in the pilot. I was an extra. But I always just think what would have been could have happened if so kissing a you're in the same sentence. Avery brooks. That's not bad thing. Okay. You know, you're the same said, that's a good thing. And I I have the pilot is Spencer. I'm going to revisit that. I haven't watched that in a while. I'll look at it. You look at the pilot. It's like a quick hitter. There was a shootout at park street, which is a very important downtown Boston location and right near the cemetery. Where mother goose is very deal greenery burial grounds and once this gunshots. People running here there and everywhere and you see a gentleman the NATs Asha case and along. I can ring coat. Ducking for cover and it's a flash. But I was in it. And now, I'm going to stop, you know, why have a CBS show. It's time for a break. You got it. CBS news for everybody.
