Yeah it's funny but it's funny as well because this film is quite close to my heart in the way that it was the first full experience of star trek for me. Yeah for some reason. I just wanted to go on say at the at the cinema and so that took me and off to see in this film was all they don't track a went out an old they They did at the time. The vhs sets with the to paul episodes into one tv movie yet sets and so i went out and bought all those. What's them and then that got me more hooked and then i watched started watching on the tv shows that got me. More hooked than nine came in june went from there and over candidates from this film. It's just the kind of it's one of those films that you just like. If someone says to you what would what would you shy people to explain so Star trek is about on. I think generations Not only so much which original crew you. Don't we need to know much about that It niles to characterizations.

According to nimoy that was a character named spoke in the script but the lines were saved. Land they could have been spoken by anyone. Lines were given to james doohan.

"To twenty twenty. I watched it last night. Would you think. I thought it was hilarious. I they threw. They threw gazillion jokes at the wall. Some of them stock. Some of them didn't but enough of them stuck. I was laughing the tears at some point. It was pretty good. Pretty good. Because what i i thought i'm like i don't need another recap and then i'm like i was the black mirror guy and i'm like okay fucking i'm in and then within the first grant could not believe it. It was all. I'd be pegged at the first. I saw something recently. And i'm like that's you grant. Oh that's right. He was in that. Hbo thing recently that everybody made fun of with nicole kidman but yeah he was he was great and it. You know. I honestly. I was getting ready to turn it off even before i started. And then sam jackson comes on. I'm like well. I mean sam's gonna do it. I'm in. I'm in and just a new stuff. That came out that. I'm gonna check out this weekend. This is for fans of the show. The history of swear words with of course nicholas cage which is strange casting decision. That's out today on netflix. And if you're a neil gaiman fan. His audio of the sleeper and the spindle is available for about three weeks for the world for free. So there's a link to that in the show notes if you wanna go check that out. Pretty good. Cast pretty i. I watched the midnight sky on net flicks the dystopia and george clooney movie. How'd that go. It was okay. I liked all the sequences on the ship. I thought that was very well done. The he directed it. And i just actors should never direct themselves. So if you really want to watch about an hour. And a half of george clooney looking like modern current david letterman staring into the camera. Pensively then this is the movie for you okay. it's a mess. It's it's not. It's there are so many better things out there that do what this does so okay it was. It burned two hours. Okay what. I did really enjoy it. I was very surprised by his. I watch palm springs. And adam. Sanford comedy that basically the premise of groundhog day. It's it's take groundhog day. Get rid of any of the philosophy and just make a lot of fart jokes and it was. It was thoroughly enjoyable. I lauren every second of it. I highly recommended it was. It was a great escape. It was very funny. And i normally don't like adam sandberg i think he's too much But adam sandberg toned down his sambergen so okay all right. I am watching the stand on. Cbs i'm now three whatever they're up to now i think which is i think three episodes could before can't really remember Thoroughly enjoying it. It's very well done remake. All right talk about the stand again in a moment. Yeah and star. Trek discovery continues on high. Where we got one more episode to get through before it can cancel. Cbs shit now for the stand. I think i think he goes. I think the fourteen and so two more episodes now all right well. Here's here's there. okay. I i mentioned this. I think in our discord chat. I almost threw my remote through the screen with the diehard tribute. You you've caught that. Oh my hard. That was terrible. Yeah this this show is just like a fucking participation trophy for inclusion. it's like oh god. I think the best wine in the last episode. This isn't really that much of a spoiler but closures for ten seconds the guy saying that everything was made shit was fantastic. That was very funny. But you know what i do miss. I miss like you know. I want the dead wood of star trek. Like you know what they did with nine back and they had quirks bar and they literally had a hollow. Brothel you know people were going to screw holograms back. Then but they can get her toned it down and see what you need is you need the mandalorian of star trek. I do i really do. That's what made me think of it. I was just like i need something. That's edgier that's at least and let's do this thing so weird thing because the thing about star trek discovery is i think that's what they're shooting for because it goes against so many of these star trek federation type principles like they're they're kind of a holes. They do the wrong thing all the time. You don't have that. We're we're good people trying to do good things feeling from it. And they're failing. It's not working for me. What i will say is it looks gorgeous. It's beautifully directed. It's just the stories are shit. The stories are shit and the main characters acting shit. Oh yeah she's horrible. But i mean you got jonathan frakes behind the wheel. Yeah directing of course. It's going to be good. You know they need to bring in. Robert rodriguez like they did with the mandalorian. And like you know what we couldn't tarantino to star trek. We'll see a man that would be great. Doubt it's going gonna happen though Speaking of star trek in a bit of good news it has been confirmed. That the ashes of james doohan. Who played scotty are aboard the iss which is pretty cool. They basically it up Richard gerry one of the first private citizens to travel on. The space station managed to smuggle some of his ashes into the space station's columbus model. He took laminated picture of doohan. Some of his ashes and put it under the floor the columbus he didn't tell anyone about the scheme only he and the family knew until now unfortunately they didn't Talk to the scientists and then the irs has blew up because maybe we shouldn't be sneaking shipped to the irs. That's all i can think of. Is the the scene in pulp fiction about the watch where it was james. Doohan smuggled on ship by. I'm happy it happened but it probably would've been a good idea in this world that we live in now. Maybe we shouldn't find out that you can actually smuggle things into space exactly. Although i'm sure the russians have smuggled some vodka up there on occasion yes read that. Yeah they they have. There's been a wonderful thing taking place on twitter. You have to be of a certain age now to be fair. I never liked the spanned. But i am enjoying this mentally as the article at the washington. Post states here. A strange ray of light appeared at the end of one of the unhappiest years in recent memory when max collins frontman of eve's exterior. Remember that band jason. I know the name. But i couldn't tell you a heart in a blender song nope couldn't grumble it. I'm i've listened to it but yeah. He returned to the controls of the nineteen nineties. Rock bands doormat twitter account and tweeted. I was literally virgin. When i wrote the heart in a blender song and since then oh boy has he kept up on. Twitter really has been amazing. The account can best be summed up by inverse writer. David grossman who tweeted eve. Six twitter account redeeming twenty twenty inch by inch as they point out here. Twitter and aging rock bands of long. Been strange bedfellows from smashmouth endless battle with the shrek movie franchise which we've covered here to trapped defending statutory rape and then getting their accounts suspended which we also covered here. Nobody's using it quite like collinses. It's amazing it's filled with self deprecation for the youngest band on the heritage circuit fo- maybe rivalries the guy from third eye blind paying a million dollars for opposition research on six and road stories which have been amazing spilling the beans on ninety s rock bands and it is hilarious. I hope this guy gets a book deal. All right. they'll check it out. This episode is brought to you by feels do you. Experience dresser having zayed or even chronic pain..

Why would be talking about him now. I mean okay. Yes he did serve in world war two and he lost a finger after being shot six times at juno beach in the closing hours of de day his ashes have made it actually into space in a number of ways but one of the most amazing ones was revealed this week.

Richard gary at who is one of the first private citizens to go to the international space station and he plays to the ashes next to a picture of james doohan on the s s. One right. i'm real quick. There's always competitors out there in the world to see how much you can compress something down. Someone is managed to put all of shrek the first movie onto a three and a half inch floppy disk. Okay but it's four and a half. It's four frames per second one. Twenty by ninety six in the color range is on par with the original. Eeg graphics of the nineties.

"So you're experiencing it as if you were there as if you were part of it so that's that's much more than a reference book or the cyclopes. It has all that information but the information is organically inserted and I use. My background is a screenwriter to find the drama and make it dramatic story like we're watching a movie about the making of a star Trek, not necessarily a documentary. But but more more like a docudrama. except it's all real, you're hearing their words if you were gonNA turn this into a film production. A movie. You can certainly do it as a documentary and you've got voiceover tracks. Interview tracks cut together but if you did it as a docudrama miniseries. Making Star Trek and hired actors, play these parts, the dialogues all written for them because it all comes from the interviews it all comes from the memos and the letters they sent to each other and so forth as a matter of fact, we have an audio book out on on season one. And Vic Mignona who plays captain. Kirk, on Star Trek continues. We should brought them on here. You know if we do this again, we should pick on to be part of the program but he he he did it and it has a cast of almost a hundred including DC Fontana including a lot of people who were there Ralph's and Eski. Director Bobby Clark played the Gorn Sean Kenny on and on and on people who were in the series during the first season and working on the series during the first season and for people who passed away like Leonard was going to do it Leonard Nimoy but but he passed away before we we started recording. And So his son Adam, who sounds a lot like his dad? Does all Leonard's parts and and James Doohan son Chris Doohan who plays Scotty on Star Trek, continues. Does his dad's parts. You know from the interviews that I did from the the memos and letters and everything else and we have Rod Roddenberry Gene Roddenberry son in there and so so it's really you just you can read the book or you can listen to the But it's it's like a like a radio play it's It's a big production with a lot of different voices coming and going. So let's talk about gene roddenberry's more end kind of talk about what he was doing before he started writing starter because he had a whole bunch different jobs basically before he became a TV writer producer. So teams a little bit of background about Gene Roddenberry. He became the TV mogul who was a very, very successful. TV. Writer but even before that he was a pilot captain in the Air Force during World War Two in the in the Philippines any flu a by a bomber. Believe it was a b seventeen and survived a crash mechanical failure caused the. That's my dog wants to make himself. Caused the bomber to crash and I think two, maybe three of his crewman died. In that crash. So, he saw. The. Worst of life I mean, he fought in a war he saw the lowest man could go and then he became a commercial. Pilot after that Twa Pan Am and and he was on passenger because you know when you're a pilot, you'll still you'll fly a plane to a certain destination and another pilot takes over because you can only fly so many hours at a time and you gotta take a break and so he hitched a ride on another flight to get back to city where they wanted him to. Fly the next to a flight out that he would pilot. So he was a passenger on this ship in uniform you know from the airline. And that that jet crashed in the desert in the Middle East in hostile territory and and with a couple of broken ribs. So the pilots everybody in the cockpit died so and quite a few passengers died too and and so he broke a couple of ribs but he led the surviving passengers out of the desert. miles and miles and miles to get to safe territory where they wouldn't get killed and So and then he became a policeman for the Los, Angeles for LAPD and rose to the rank of sergeant. He was a motorcycle cop at first and then at the very end, he was writing speeches for the chief of police and then he he was also sent to be a technical advisor. A lot of police shows and and supplied stories dragnet based on true stories. You know he would want to find the stories in the files of LAPD because he wanted to be a writer and so he had all that experience behind him. before he became a TV writer and he never had to shoot anybody as a cop. But he. Did Uses gun to kill a dog that had been hit by a car and the dog was suffering and dying, and he took out his gun and ended its misery. Because, he loved animals and and so that's where he came from and then a TV writer he sold about one hundred scripts They're all in there and in the book and you kind of walk through, there's a big chapter that opens it with gene roddenberry's life and early career 'cause it's all very important because he brought all this background to star Trek. And he was the top writer on a on a very popular. Western series in the nineteen fifties called half gun will travel with Richard. Boone he wrote more scripts than anybody else. He won a writers Guild Award for one of his scripts and then he started producing and He produces series called the lieutenant which he created, which Gary Lockhart was in started. And Robert Vaughn who then went on to do man from uncle and Gary. Locke of course was in two thousand and one. But he was in the Star Trek pilot where no man has gone before is Gary Mitchell who gets turned into a God. and. God like being with powers and So he did that series and it got cancelled not because of the ratings were bad but because he was telling edgy stories and one in particular, really upset the network upset the Pentagon who were allowing the series to be filmed to camp, Pendleton in California and so the addicted if you put this episode on the air, you're not going to get to film here anymore and he fought to get it on the air. So. It did and and then the the show was cancelled. So at that point, he decided if he was going to do another series if he was going to create another series and try to produce another series, he wanted it to be a show where he could talk about the subjects that he wanted to talk about and star Trek became that show because he could do stories about Vietnam could do stories about racism and God and sexism and overpopulation and and everything else. Because it's taking place on different planets and it's in the future and he could get by the NBC sensors by doing that type of show although there were lots of fights. So once he got started, and of course, the pilot was the cage I've got a question for you about that original episode. This is something that's bug me since like forever. So. This is a moment that's really early on the episode and it's really quick but there's a moment where we see pike walking down a corridor in the ship and as he's walking, he's passed by a young couple who are basically wearing clothes that would have been contemporary for nineteen sixties and not the time period show actually takes place. He's folks wearing shorts and. It. Doesn't look like it's very anachronistic. So I'm just curious if you. had been on the in the gym or something I think they're they're like carrying tennis rockets to or something because the ship ship had areas where you're on a five year mission. So it had areas where you could go and exercise and recreation rooms and things like that, and and so you kind of see these people walk by very quickly and it's a little bit jarring Yes, it was very bizarre to see them. I guess, makes sense I just don't really even address it. It's just like Hey who's yours to folks who just walked in from nineteen, sixty, five on this futuristic spaceship. So I'm glad I got an explanation for that finally. But you know..

"The guest stars were just blown away by this set. Star Trek origins but where did you start to pursue writing as a profession Well, I became interested in writing right in that moment You know I was always very creative as a kid. And I was drawing my own comic books and things of that nature. But I wanted to write for television and or knew that I would want to later on and and probably star trek more than any other show really fueled that because it showed me that you could not just entertain people but you can enlighten people not that ten eleven twelve, thirteen year old has much that they can enlighten you about but as I got older and got into high school and and college, and so forth You know I was still watching Star Trek reruns and what? Else was on in the seventies Charlie's angels and stuff like that. You know. So it was it was like I'd see that show and see the potential of what you could do as a television writer, and so that kind of fueled my interest to become a TV writer. So asking about yourself is actually end your first book but it just for folks who haven't gotten it yet I'd like to ask essentially how you went from being Superfan to being star Trek Authority which I think also kind of leads into eating Darby. Montana and where things went from there. Well my first encounter with Dorothy was when the animated series was on in seventy, three, seventy, four, seventy, five, it was in seventy four. Then I I wrote a sample script and 'cause I'd already been reading sample scripts for other shows I was just in high school and but but I was. Turning these things into my English teacher and getting a better grade. Because of he's wrote a TV script and things of that nature. So I wrote one for the animated series and I contacted her I wrote a tour at paramount pictures and responded by letter and said You know we've were shooting our last episodes now for the animated. Series. and I'll be leaving I'll be going onto other stuff I don't know if the show will continue or not. But I. Just wanted to respond which was very nice for and and then I met her years later after I mentioned Roddenberry and after I interviewed him and I think he. Connected with Dorsey and Bob Jesmyn and and eventually John F. Black and all the the creative people on the show, and then I started interviewing the writers and the directors and the cast members, and then people work on the sets. But Jean was the one who gave me access to all the the files. The show files and they kept They kept You know something like forty five boxes of of memos and production schedules and scripts and the whole bit. And I had Susan Sackett give me all these things after I interviewed him which was for a local. Area Los Angeles Area TV. Special, and I was working for a company that did those things and and that started my relationship with Jean So that started to work on the book and but it just took me years and years and years to get around to it because I had become very busy. Writing Scripts and Eventually directing and things of that nature. So it was decades before I actually sat down and wrote the books from all this information that I had been amassing for. More, than two decades so Your Palms. The first time you met gene, Roddenberry I'll tell you I was. You could've picked me up off the floor. I remember bill was the name of the guy and he said we're thinking of doing something on. Star Trek. For a local TV station, probably the channel that carry it and and he said who knows anything about the shown I, raise my hand and said I've seen them all you know I love the show and I wasn't in a test fan I never went to any conventions. Sent to convention wants to deliver film several episodes from company that that licensed amount dot paramount. syndicator here and but I met Arlene Martel for the first time later became a friend and everything else their. James Doohan, Walter, egg, George Decay, and So forth, I got to go a party that they all went to after the convention and it was pretty cool. and. We Watch Blueberry Hills but I. But I didn't go to the conventions in dress up I didn't collect phasers or anything like that. I just loved the show you know and as a as a writer at somebody who was starting his career as a screenwriter I just found it to be one of the best out there if. Not. The Best that show because of the themes of all the episodes and the believability of the characters putting them into a science fiction setting these characters that just came off so much more real and so much more three dimensional than Joe Mannix and and and characters like that. You know who were kind of cardboard and kind of one dimensional. So the show is a great inspiration for me for those reasons and then when I started doing books. And started getting access to all the memos which included these books. Of course are so huge and there's so many of them is every episode has a chapter and you can read the memos floating back and forth or experts from the memos and between Roddenberry and find Tannen just been a gene coon, Stan Robertson at NBC and all these people, and so you see what they're thinking and wanting with every single episode and what they're battling with every single up. So as far as. Can we get by the censors can we afford to do this things of that nature and even episodes that didn't get made because they couldn't get past the censors or they couldn't find a way to do it within their budget So they had a lot of scripts written by esteem science fiction writers, but didn't get made. So we have a whole chapter on that and each book for each season, the voyages that never were the I. think that's of the chapter. It's there's one of them in each of the books there's for your listeners. There's A, there's a book on each season. Like about six hundred. Pages. Seven hundred I think I'm one of them and and each episode has a fifteen twenty page chapter Of, other chapters in between that walk you through the writing and the making of every episode, and we even licensed all the Nielsen Ratings. So you you're taking all the way through the release in the broadcast of that episode and The reviews came out and everything else. So it's all this information, but it's not it's not an encyclopedia it's not a reference book. These are I call them and my publisher calls them a biography. Of TV series we treat star Trek as flesh and blood because it is it's gene roddenberry's flesh and Dorothy Fontana Gene Coon and and William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy everybody who came together to do this show and directors mark Daniels Joseph Paddington Ralph's. And Naski and on and on and and they all came together and connected became one and made this series, and so you're hearing their thoughts you're seeing their struggles you're seeing the conflicts especially conflicts between gene roddenberry and NBC and just the mechanics of trying to make the show, and so you're going you're going through the whole process with them even when they go into the hospital having an emotional breakdown..

And and and and her or really Are rarely the ones that are left out in the? Yeah which is too bad because to great characters that you know. I miss that when I'm watching the original series early episodes and they're not in them yet. They not season one at all. Checkoff is check off kind of comes in sometime after spacey thing annoying people on the Internet. Say that a checkup wasn't even in space seat. Somebody's you can. He wasn't in the original fancier. Let's not let's not service those fans and you know the Anthony Stock Answer. He was on the ship. He wasn't on the bridge sure. Yeah Yeah you're right.

I'd like a like feather in six number five the undiscovered country which is Donald. I like that one. I think some people think that's the best of the original movies I read so maybe on some people say everything people some people think. Think the general feeling the movies are this one's first three or four and only pad. I mean It was a big blow to Shatner's ego because that's the one. He interacted Charlie Industrial Light Magic or not available to do is the special effects with like Joe's special right ex- special effects. It is fantastic for the money and the time absolately. Imdb thing they. This is one of the first movies to to employ three D computer computer animation so the whole like video. I was blown away and I continue to be blown away by this not necessarily obviously graphics and increase next Angeles as an but the narrative of missile hitting of land and been That was done by an early version of the Pixel. Wow Yeah and you don't want that for eighty two that has to have like a grand jury when you first encountered onscreen and it doesn't mean you can tell It's so funny. The the tricks of the day always involve massive scenery and tiny people. They could probably have them walk out onto a small green screen pulpit on a lighting raid or something and then they generated all of that stuff around the Beaujolais in two thousand one is giants facebook people so they do that with the little guy on the platform to give it scouts. But you know just narrating. They discovered that like they never able mountains before so they have discovered a frontal way to to make random mountains. And that's when I saw it a kid. I was saying that that planet animation and all the BRIDGE TECHNOLOGY LOSE DOT. It was projected in new ways. So there was a new level of sophistication and like I think. The design of the movies is seconds and like little things like just a little dots around the the the she. It really makes you like then. Of course I guess that I battle with him conning gone L. Send it right now right kid. A book of kind of like Star Trek designed stuff. That was so cool for the reasons that you're talking about. It was like the minutia of the design of everything from the control panels to the ship and the lettering. And when I'm looking at the original series again now I can't think of another show I certainly can't think of another TV show. That has an oral landscape as definable as they figured out. Whoever whoever came up with that whole rast of effects from the doors opening to the communicators.

"We're in part four of the six part series looking at the first six six of the Star Trek films. This one is set of course in the nineteen eighties star trek for the voyage home. It's a PG rated film it does have have some language and mild violence the times an hour and fifty eight minutes. The CAST includes William Shatner. Leonard Nimoy Catherine Hicks deforest Kelley. James Doohan George George Decay Walter. Caney nichelle Nichols Jane Wyatt. In Mark Leonard the director is Leonard Nimoy in the screenplay credited to Steve Pearson. Peter Cracks Harve Bennett and Nicholas Meyer now star trek for the voyage home. It starts with our heroes. They're on planet Vulcan. They're loading up to go home. They know they're gonNA face punishment from the federation for their hijacking of the enterprise. We saw that in Star Trek three as well as its subsequent destruction not to mention inching the sabotage of the excelsior. The other starship. That was chasing them as the approach earth they find that there is a giant space probe and it's threatening to destroy the planet. Senate it's emitting this signal to which those people on Earth are baffled on how they're going to respond to it. They determine that the probe is sending messages in the language anguish of humpback whales but the problem is humpback. Whales have been extinct on Earth for over two hundred years with seemingly no obvious solution. S Two how to respond Kirk and crew decide that they're going to use their Klingon bird of prey starship to time-warp back to the late twentieth century in order to snatch a couple of humpbacks backs and bring them back with the hopes of saving their timeline of earth. They discovered that there are two whales that are in captivity there at the Bay area in Sedation Institute. Still the only have a limited amount of time to figure out how to transport these whales and to put them in tons of seawater and get them to the future so to get close. They need the help of a sedation institute. Expert her name is Dr Jillian. Taylor played by Catherine Hicks. And they're also going to need to find nuclear wessels and harvest enough automic energy to send their tapped out ship back into the future much more to the story than that. But that's the basic premise. It's pretty much achie- breath of fresh air I think in the Star Trek movie series. It's the lightest of the films in terms of tone. It also rounds out the trilogy which started back with Star Trek to the wrath of Khan although this has a decidedly different vibe to it and tat that one was more deadly serious and while it does continue three months after Star Trek. Three the search for spock. It is still I think very accessible if you only have a passing familiarity with the television series but you have not seen the previous films. I think you're still going to get some mileage out of Star Trek Four. What sets it apart from other star Trek Adventures whether the movies or the television show? Is this ingenious idea. That's behind the story. It really boldly goes where no other has gone before it does have a heartfelt ecological message and thoroughly entertaining premise. This an execution. It really should not have worked. I mean this is a very ambitious film but it still does. It does wonderfully at that. Now the kickoff to the making of Star Trek for it started back with paramount's announcement just a few weeks after the release of Star Trek three into theaters. They were negotiating with Leonard. Nimoy they wanted him to return to direct the fourth entry in the cinematic Star Trek series. Back then Nimoy in the producer. Harve Bennett decided that the next movie should be much lighter in tone than the darker one that was experienced the search for spock. Now today this is the only star trek film in which no one dies unless you count the whales who are being harvested for their blubber in this video. That's showing it the citation tation institute. It's also the first to contain stronger language and that supply some potent in some very humorous commentary on Dialogue in the twentieth century culture. Now one goal of Star Trek for was to tie up Star Trek threes loose adds to return the film series into kind of status quo for future entries. He's four star Trek for the franchise after two movies done in the television wing of the studio now is done by the motion picture wing. Originally it was done by the TV studio to to keep costs down but because they knew that it was going to be at least a solid hit. They decided to move forward with it. Harve Bennett came up with a top ten favourite star trek episodes list from which to get ideas from it. Pretty much coincided with what many fans consider to be the cream of the crop as well so so he looked at the elements of what people enjoyed enjoyed about those episodes. He found that there were a couple of time. Travel episodes that were a particular delight for him and for fans specifically city on the edge of forever forever that was considered one of the top star trek episodes of all time in that really turned on the light bulb in their heads that the next film should probably have the crew go back in time and and the method to achieve time travel comes from the episode called tomorrow is yesterday. And that's where the enterprise slingshots around a star and it sends the enterprise back to the nineteen sixties Steve. After they discussed what era they wanted to shoot the film and they felt that the modern day seemed to work best they would set it in the home base of what would be the federation the Future San Francisco. This is a city where there futuristic uniform might not seem out of place so it very much was in keeping their the modern setting provide some pretty choice fish out of water moments and the satirical commentary on the so-called primitive and paranoid culture of Contemporary Society. As has Nimoy was on another project he was performing in this NBC miniseries in Europe it was ernest. Hemingway's The sun also rises there. He came up with this outline during this in person. Meeting with Harvey Bennett in August of Nineteen eighty-four he ended up consulting with professors at MIT and Harvard and the University of California in Santa Cruz especially especially their Seti. Division the search for extraterrestrial intelligence topics daddy discussed with these professors included theories related to extraterrestrial probabilities. He's the difficulty of communicating with these aliens and how civilizations might connect across distances in space. That might take eons to diverse. There was inspiration here for Nimoy on centering. The film around conservation came from this nineteen eighty-four book. He was reading by Harvard. Professor named Edward. O Wilson it. It was called bio field area and it was about the mini species of animals and plants that are set to go extinct and what their loss might mean eventually to the future of humankind as Nimoy meanwhile began to contemplate with the loss of millions of species might mean for Earth's future. He decided he was going to base the plot of the film on the need to save a species that was predicted to be extinct extinct within three centuries namely the humpback whale in addition to fitting in nicely with the San Francisco setting the decided to choose the humpback whale because of its size is in its grace and especially for its distinctive and sophisticated use of songs to communicate. The crew had come back to Earth's pass to get a pair of Humpback. Whales better are needed to sing their song to this alien civilization. Who are trying to communicate with this? Highly Intelligent Earth Species Nimoy was inspired by this idea. Due to a favourite ray Bradbury story that he had read called the Foghorn in that story. There's a sea monster that attracted to the sound of a lighthouse foghorn corn because that foghorn happens to sound like itself and he thinks that it's going to be another creature like him. The monster ends up destroying the tower when the men inside ended up turning off that foghorn and that was kind of the kernel of the idea here with the space probe that story was adapted into a movie before it was called the beast from from twenty thousand fathoms came out in the nineteen fifties. And they'll still. The concept here seems pretty new and fresh in the context of Star Trek adventure except with this alien race possibly destroying earth with a powerful probe to search the oceans when the songs of the whales that sounded like their language ended up stopping. A hard Bennett was less hands on with the script this time. He assigned the duties to his inexperienced writing team of Steve Pearson and Peter Craig's paramount. Like the story idea. But not any of their scripts grips the one hindrance and this is kind of a novel thing here. It had to do with them. Trying to incorporate a role for renown trekkie. Eddie Murphy Raffi. Yes Eddie Murphy. The superstar comedian and actor Murphy had during a dinner..

"That's equity dot net covering all the brand new movies today. I'M GONNA be getting into the second a what's going to be a six part series looking at Star Trek Trek films. I would say of the nineteen eighties but only three of the six actually were released in the nineteen eighty S. Obviously the last episode we covered nine hundred seventy nine star trek trek the motion picture. We're going to continue with the follow up Star Trek to the wrath of Khan. Some people will call it star trek the wrath of Khan. It's a film that came out. In one thousand nine hundred eighty two you and it is a PG rated film at predates PG thirteen it definitely would be pg thirteen today because it does contain a lot of violence for a star Trek Film. The run time is an hour and fifty three minutes bringing back to cast William Shatner Leonard Nimoy deforest Kelley. James Doohan Walter Caning George Decay and Michelle Nichols a newcomer while he's not a new comer. He's been in star trek before one of the episodes Ricardo. Montalban is a CO star of this film and the newcomers. BB Bash Rush. Married Patrick Paul Winfield and Kirstie Alley. Nicholas Meyer is the director and screenplay credited to Jackie swords now before the ponders space Odyssey that was star trek the motion picture before that opened paramount and had already been in talks for a follow up but due to the costly production problems they experienced appearance with the motion picture. The sequel was going to have to be a modestly budgeted film and it was going to be made by paramount's television division with an eye toward releasing it on television and perhaps eighth theatrical release overseas depending on the quality though paramount might consider eighth theatrical release in North America as well and that led to a discussion with paramount television newcomer. His name is Harvey Bennett. He was a producer for high profile television shows in the seventies like the MoD squad the six million dollar man and the bionic woman and paramount wanted Bennett to come up with a better movie than the first one. But at a fraction of the cost Bennett though Oh had not seen an episode of Star Trek so is first impulse was to decline the offer but his children love the show and they begged him to reconsider he did get up to speed in the screening room. He watched all seventy nine episodes of the original series to benefit. As he was watching these episodes he found that the appeal of Star Trek Trek came through the interplay of its characters and their moral and ethical dilemmas much more so than battles or space travel he would try to guide the drama back to the actors and not toward the epic spectacle that was its predecessor. Now Bennett looked through episodes to build a story upon among the seventy nine he settled on season. One's Spacey Bennett. Like this episode primarily because Kirk had a formidable villain to fight in it something that viewers and critics critics felt that the first film lacked so star trek to would also offer a more personal look at Kirk and his life. He's going to be confronting age. His sacrifice is of his family for his career and the reality of loss in the face of adversity audiences should reconnect with these characters instead of getting lost gawking at the vast unknown of the universe as did with the motion picture now the space seed episode of the original show features the enterprise discovering a derelict. Spaceship called called the SS Botany Bay. It contained mostly people who were in suspended animation and the leader is con- union seeing. He's the mastermind among breed of eugenically engineered superhumans who became warlords in the late twentieth century. They took over about a third of the earth. There were eugenic wars. I ended up erupting and Khan and his people that are making their escape into space ever the warmonger con attempts to take over the enterprise and he's going to use it to go on a quest to conquer worlds yet again. Kirk ends up winning in that skirmish and he banishes con to a planet called Seti Alpha five this dangerous but habitable a planet that he can use his cunning strength to spend his lifetime. Taming now Bennett. Script outline as a follow up to spacey was called Star Trek to the war for the generations in it. He planned a rebellion to erupt on. This federation planet. That requires Kirk and the enterprise is attention. Kirk ends up rescuing wingo woman that he was once in love with back in the day and he finds that one of the leaders of the rebellion is the son that he never knew. Existed Kirk ends up getting captured and that he sent his the death by that Sun. But in the interim it's discovered that Khan is the source of the rebellion and that forces Kirk and son to join forces to defeat beat Khan and the ending has kirk and become a member of the enterprise crew now due to generational elements Bennett would use this to explore themes about sacrifices made pursuing a federation career over family pursuits to help them with the actual script. Though Bennett ended up hiring. At writer and a star Trek Fan in his own right named Jack back beat swords so helped with the script he noticed that spock was not anywhere to be found in the outline. So Bennett had to explain that Leonard Nimoy had no interest in returning he was not going to be available for the follow up to star Trek. Now it was so weird suggestion that they needed Nimoy and he might return if they gave his character. You're a glorious death. In the sequel he envisioned it happening. Maybe a third of the way into story at the end of act one shocking audiences in the way. That is kind of similar to Marion. Syrian crane in Hitchcock's psycho. So they pitch this to Nimoy. He consented he liked the idea. He was going to appear on the condition of his death along with a negotiated. She did deal that he would strike with paramount for two additional acting projects in film study had down the line now in this early version of the script swords introduced a federation weapon called the Omega System. Now the rest of the script was very similar to the finish movie except the aforementioned death of spock happening earlier instead instead of steady eels. They were more like these alien. SPIDERS and the woman of creeks past was revealed to be Dr Janet Wallace from one of the episodes of the TV show called the deadly early years and her son was much more integral to the plot and now in this draft there was a vulcan. A new vulcan named Savic just like in the finished film except here it was going to be a male character. Most male Vulcan names start with the letter s females with the letter T.. Although there are some exceptions there was going to be a romantic subplot taking taking place between Kirk and a young female bridge officer and as they were pitching Ford ideas. The AMIGA system ended up turning into what we know. Now as is genesis and that was the suggestion of art director Michael Miner who had an interest on his own in tariff warming. And he suggested that this might be a better weapon and been like this because it was a weapon that was going to produce life and that reinforced the TV shows optimistic. Approach toward technology and space exploration. And why would the federation have weapons. That were meant to annihilate planets. They would actually want to tear for him. A planet and it made much more sense although that weapon could be used as to annihilate the planet if done on a planet that had life on it now Bennett also worked with another screenwriter after this. His name is Samuel People's and he had some star Trek scripting ripping experience for the TV shows. People script produced a lot of major story revisions. He traded out con his wife altogether from the story. He was GonNa make them the alien beings and there were a host of new characters and different conflicts. And when Bennett read it he knew that people script was just not going to work but they really could not delay any longer without a writer's help because special effects department needed a script and they needed it within about three weeks or the movie might never happen because paramount did not. I want to repeat of the first film by waiting and delaying and paying these technicians to continue to wait around for a script that was yet to be written now as the visual effects. Budget was concerned. Dan Bennett ended up bringing in a director of popular commercials named Robert Saleh. He was also a friend of Bennett since days back in. UCLA film school and and he gave him the job of producer. Them to first order of business was to map out. All of the effects that we're going to be produced using this intricate storyboarding process along with the art director. Michael Minors so they would have it all planned out beforehand..

"This episode is going to be great. So so he'll roddenbury according to the Ark of roddenberry because he thought that this was dead and it wasn't GonNa go near. He's just kind of looking for a money grab he allowed things to happen in the run of the animated series that he never would have actually allowed had he been like thinking. This was going to be something that would go forward forward. Sure who can predict that exactly exactly and so he kind of always regretted the animated series and considered it to be Apocryphal. Colonel like a faint like fan film just by people that he used to work with kind of a thing right so he's sort of de canonized it because he's Roddenberry and he can do that kind of stuff off well. He dies back in back in the nineties. Say it was late eighties early nineties somewhere around there. STAR TREK DOT COM re added the animated series to its list of official Star Trek series in two thousand six so there was no like official announcement of like. We're making cannon again but they kinda did when they did that and oh by the way several several future series including future movies reference. Lots of things that happened throughout the course of the animated made in series but none more so than the episode. We're talking about today. I there were lots of things and that. That's something I thought about like when as watching something this. This kind of gives a lot of details. Not only about Vulcans but right but spock in particular and so I'm like I had that thought going through here. It's like if this is all considered Canon like that adds a lot to the story a lot of it. And here's what what happened. Was Future Writers of Star Trek who watched the animated series. And they just look for little things to pull in. And because they're writing official Canon when they canonize certain elements share of the animated series. So for some people they say none of the original animated series is Canon except for this episode. kind of I think what the general consensus with most people is. The animated series is Canon except for where it conflicts with other live action series which they take precedence precedence. Now that's not hard to believe because that's not a hard thing I think for people to grasp because live action series contradicts former live action action series as well throughout the history star Trek. Yeah we just talk about ret conning. Then that's kind of this new. Yeah Yeah it really is but I mean like a couple of things that that become. I don't know whether you see what you say. Did become cannon. Things like Amanda spock's mom like her last name is Grayson. Yeah this is the first time that that ever gets and I'm sorry I'm bringing all your old elsewhere this this it created here okay and it's later canonized in one of the movies and is talked about in one of the later series. The name of the town that spock lives in Chicago Sara or something like that at at that becomes canonized later of where they grew up The the the the the name healer is canonized in the Vulcan healer dealer. So and so in another future episode a reference. Back to this The you mentioned you have seen the two thousand nine J.J. Abrams Star Trek Film. I don't know how much you actually remember that episode. But there's a there's a scene where Spock is being bullied. Young SPOCK DOC. As a student is being bullied by other kids which is a direct. Pull from his this episode directly from this episode right yeah And then obviously so. Obviously this episode goes back and draws from as a touchstone point which DC Fontana very much intended for it draws touchdown things like the idea. The ad that spock struggles with his humanity with his half half human humanity right. Yeah boss Kinda shows that started early exactly and that spock did did commit himself to the Vulcan of life even though he still had issues you know and I was very glad about that. And and there's there's lots of different things The family shrine that gets talked about the fact. There's an there's an episode title called the forge for one of the future episodes roads. That goes back to the Vulcan forge. That is referenced in this episode for the very first time. So there's lots of things about this particular episode That they it really are canonized later. Even if you don't consider the show itself to be Canon though a lot of really do and honestly I kinda wonder how many people have easier time allowing this canon because DC Fontana wrote. It Wilshire and just knowing that she had such a big part in all of the live action series to like. I mean I believe like you said last time we talked about her. I think that she knows how to write. Star Trek better than gene roddenberry. I think that's true and I don't have a problem saying that and so I mean with that in mind like why. Why wouldn't you accept this? Canon Scher I. Now I don't know if I don't know if she wrote other episodes of the animated unmade series do offhand. So interesting story about that. No this is the only episode of the animated series. She wrote okay now. There's a reason for that though. All right she she was one of the main producers story editors on the series all right but just as they were getting going when they had they had actually pulled in a lot of their riders riders from the original series who had worked on the original series. They had a handful of New People. Well right about the time. They go into production on all these start writing scripts guess what happens. The writers writers guild goes on strike right but there was a there was like a loophole. There is a caveat. Riders could write one. They were allowed to write one episode of animation Russian. They couldn't do any live action film but they could write one episode of animation without having to join their guild Okay and I think that's still true. act like you can be in like a commercial but soon as you're in too you have to join the screen actors guild or something like that. There's some weird rule like that but it kind of works. I guess for the writers skill to like so they could do one animated version without having to join that guilt so they could. They could actually work a little bit. They could write without violating union rules. That were on strike. So what happened. was everyone basically wrote an episode one. That's it so now as I was listening to that story I've got the feeling like at some point. The strike was over and people may have snuck in a second one towards the end. I'm not really sure I didn't go back and check the writers for every single episode to see if anybody had a double sewed but I do know that this was Dorothy is only a script credit for the Animated Series Fair. Enough as I said my notes are all over the place with that So Yeah Yeah. Let's see what else about that the mantra okay. Let's talk about what we're talking about the writers Because is there now having to write an animated cartoon. They're also having to do it in twenty two minutes which was a lot different? DC Fontana talked about how the Remember the Dorian first officer in the alternate timeline theme and I think it was his name. She had had thoughts of like well. What happened to him and and what's going on with him and she's like if I had more time I would have loved to explore that? Yeah but she just didn't so that they were feeling the crunch they said. It was still star Trek though and their mantra was they weren't writing a cartoon. They were writing star Trek and as such they packed a lot of story and each each and every episode. They still had moral tales But they they were able to do things they never could. So as a writer it was really nice to have that One of the other things just on a production note because the original series was a Saturday morning cartoon it was directed at kids. There was a thought to do all of the characters as kid episodes like to give each one of them. A kid episode sewed roddenberry nixed that idea though. That's when he pulled in his his executive consultant thing and said no but this one was the only one that made it. He kind of gave the green light to go ahead and do so That's thanks to Mr Gene Roddenberry What else what else? What else to tell you before we get into everything I can save that one. I can save that one Let's Oh this was. The animated series stories was the very first star Trek episode. And it wasn't this episode. It was one of the other ones that won an emmy. The original series never won an emmy right so this is is the first one so even though the series is a little pan it's a little surreal. Is it not. Is it really track. Is it whatever you know. It certainly has its its. It's place in Star Trek history. I mentioned all the original actors returned When they did bring back all of the original actors and got them together in one room Typically they would actually just record all their voices separate okay but they did bring them back and they all did the voices together for the first three episodes. This was one of them after after that they kind of went on like William Shatner was doing like he was on tour doing theater. He was on tour so he recorded designs with a tape recorder in his hotel room. Right but like people like Nichelle Nichols James Doohan may Joel Barrett Roddenberry as she would be now known they were kind of around so those three particularly did a lot of the extra voices for example in this episode. The Guardian the voice of the guardian of forever was James Doohan Merge. James Doohan Played Scotty in case in case you don't remember that also James Doohan originally was supposed to be the voice of Sarik in this episode. He had recorded boarded the lines. One of the first thing you do animation as you have to record the lines I because they match the animation to the voices share. Well the reason he who was doing that was because mark. Leonard wasn't available well as they started rapping production on this episode. Leonard suddenly became available. I guess he had a few minutes and they were able to bring him in and he looped Dover all of James Doohan's lines and his voice and rightly so it was his character right. There were never able to get Jane Wyatt. Who Played Amanda so the Voice Lisa of Amanda in this particular episode is Major Barrett Roddenberry? That's the voice of Amanda. So there's a couple of things there which which I think that's really going to be Matt and if anything comes up over the course of our conversation I'll go back to it again. I apologize for how scattered this opening this just been pulling all these different stories from different places and didn't really know how to perform it together. So why don't I stop talking for a while. Okay I'll turn it over to you. Take us through the episode. What'd you think? What'd you you know what stood out to you? What questions do you have that I may dodge or not? I don't know well we I mean I will say the first thing I noticed was the opening credits. Only had the three names three names of the trio and so my first thought was is that all they could get but like I mean I think part of it was all they really needed for this episode. I mean there was. There was Scotty in there and then like accent. He did some other voices and stuff but that was very. I thought that was this project too far removed from the original. Yeah that that they couldn't bring back with didn't want to at that point. Yeah no Wi with that. If you'll remember in the in the original series stories that's how the opening credits went. It was just the three main characters everybody else was in the post characters and the way they did. TV At the time they didn't do opening credits. So you had to be a major major person in the show. Basically the Stroz star taking your name in the opening credits. So that's that's but because the the opening the original series did yeah. I mean I noticed. They tried to mimic the original series as best they could. They did try you try. I still like the original original better. No problem no problem yes you should by the way yes. Anyway I as for this story in particular it it I I hate bringing up series again. Sure outside of track but this is in my mind is what would happen if Harry Potter and went wrong. Okay right 'cause this it just feels like there's time travel involved and they messed it up. which is something thing I mean? Obviously we see that and other other places sure but the series I'm most familiar with Harry Potter is like he always gets it right right. He always does it. And and it's it's that same thing it's where he goes back and saves himself and so that I think that's why making that connection there except obviously here in Star Trek. The spock messed it up without knowing that he messed it up which is once again is really weird weird to think about but yeah it's so much of say the point of the story was to go back and explore Spock as a kid It really by the way the moral of the lesson this really was. This was less about exploring spock and more about. Hey let's talk about euthanasia for kids. It's like the ultimate where the episode gets to write. They wanted D C Fontana especially wanted to do that story for kids NBC didn't like at the time they really wanted her to change the ending. Gene actually stepped in and said no no trustworthy and so they did and they didn't get one letter of complaint so she's like..

"Remember yesterday when I was talking about one of my favorite aspect of. The. Much increased visibility and events of this particular commemoration of today was hearing all of these individualize stories. And we played one for you. It's really emotional story of one of the one of the men charged with piloting the landing craft and the Riveria other throughout the day. The president shared some during his speech, which I almost, I almost think that people who normally very critical, the president were able to point out that, that was actually pretty good speech. And I either they, they thought it was good or they only criticized his delivery, but not the words. So I can't that as a win, and I think it was a good speech. Here's the thing. I don't I don't you don't have to agree. Although the, this isn't really a political speech per se. You're gonna have to agree with it when when a president is speaking to recognize that somebody may have given a good speech, affective speech, and I'm never understand. Why people are just so beholden to that. Remember that speech that Michelle Obama gave? And, and, and I know that irritated some people because the media gushed because the media is going to show anyway. But it was a very, very good speech. He gave there at the end of the Obama presidency. Very good speech. I guess is. You're not allowed to cross over, but I thought with, with Trump sharing those handouts, and him him going over and stop in his speech, a couple times to go over and actually not just glance in the direction of. But personally, thank the very people he was talking about was amazing. And then there is another story. I read I had no idea. And even though the day after I wanna share it with euro quick. Do you know the story of Lieutenant James Doohan of the Canadian use a Canadian army excuse me started arming, then eventually went to Canadian air force? Do you know who that is, by the way? James doohan. You do. You just don't know that you do. So what he was nineteen years of age, do Han listed in the Royal Canadian army. And by the time of the d day invasion, he had attained the rank of Lieutenant so on d day. He was charged with leading a contingent of Canadian, Canadian military force up Juno beach. And is credited with taking out to German sniper positions. Juneau had an excessive amount of land mines to. They had a very good job. So it was very slow. Creep? Very dangerous creep up that beach to be able to get up to this pill boxes to take out those positions. But he accomplished it. And later that day. As he was. Headed. He was walking it was in the evening and he was where was he was walking back to his post. A fellow Canadian servicemen mistook him for German, and shot him six times. Suffering bullet wounds to his legs. His hand in his chest. He ended up losing a finger. He lost his right. Middle finger narrowly escaped a fatal shot to the chest when his medal cigarette case, deflected the bullet. You gotta be right. You're shot six times. Now you get to go back to, to Canada. Now do undecided. He always really wanted to fly. So he rolled over to the Rollo Royal Canadian artillery, and eventually would become known as the craziest pilot and the Canadian air force due to his exploits. He died back to two thousand and five, but it was post military where he probably gained the most amount of recognition that Scotty from scar trek. Yeah. Scotty from the old Star Trek TV series is due Han. And he took Juno beach, and then got shot, six times by one of his own soldiers. That crazy. I had no idea. But Gumri Scott. Scotty. So semi probably knew that I didn't. But I figured if I didn't know there might be one other person didn't know it. So did you know that Kyle? I did. Because I learned it yesterday. I spent quite a bit of time bouncing around. We kapiti. Sorry for wasting your time then. No. No. It's fascinating again. So familiar with the character, you're familiar with the actor but I didn't personally realize you know that, that part of his history. No, it absolutely incredible. Here's something else. I saw yesterday. And I had this conversation with the buddy to with they were talking about everything that was going on, obviously during World War Two, and, and, and the bold, military moves that were necessary things like. Taking the shores of France, as we commemorate with d day yesterday, but also how incredibly different life was, and the ways in which people back in the states? Would spend their time. With scrap metal drives and the complete recruit configuration of the workforce, the Rosie the Riveter I kind of icon there. The, the civilian pilots, the number of female civilian pilots, that essentially were needed back here to continue with every, you know, all the flight, needs, we had here, the sacrifices that people are having to give up the, the, the, the amount of people who were kids, but still remember. When they would they would spend time than with their mom going around, and finding pots and pans, and everything under the sun, so that they could contribute to the war effort in their own way. Those were really amazing stories and the discussion and during some of the analysis, I saw this. And I think it's, it's a very negative take on it. But the argument was that where we sit in America right now. People would be we could never pull together and do what they did then. We wouldn't be able to. Do you agree with that? Do you think what do you think where we are in America right now? There is. There's absolutely no way. I understand there's logistical, especially in the military side, there's logistical differences in, in the sense that that's not how we fight wars with technology that allows us to do things in a very different manner. But. Alternately. Do you think that we do, do you think we'd be capable of? But I saw people question, whether they think members of the US military today would be capable of following a command go storm beach. And I thought that might be a little salting actually that seems a bit insulting. I mean, we hear some amazing stories of heroism out of recent conflicts anytime, anytime you see one of these. The medal of honor ceremony. And we just had one here, what couple months ago. And, you know, the in that's so in that story, I don't have it in front of me saw not butcher, and even believe the generic. So the last time that medal was given posthumously. I might add, it was because one of our service members was they're doing really mundane thing that I suppose, somebody listening, spent a lot of time doing, and that's kind of sitting around and patrol in an area. And if something doesn't look, right. Going over and talking to them. That's what that's what they did. He gets out. He's in charge. They get out of the humvee. There's three other guys. They're and they're talking to these two dudes and something's not right. And he's able to recognize while this is going on the something that's not right. Is that dude is going to blow himself up? And so what does he do? He lurches forward and wraps himself around this guy's body as they fall to the ground and the explosion goes off and kills him. And that likely saved the life of well all three of the guys who were standing there. So while that's, that's a momentary thing, I think where the disconnect would be today, and this is a very good good point that my buddy brought up. He's a radio guy to hash out some of the stuff together. And I can't argue with them is the thing, the thing that was required then that probably wouldn't be able to be done today is politicians who were willing to make big decisions. But I want you to think about that big decisions that were not calculated decisions, but decisions that they knew they knew that the first wave of soldiers that hit the beaches of Normandy. The bloodshed was going to be incredible. But they had to sit there and they had to with the information that was vailable. Make a determination that ultimately this right here this in this storming of the beaches, this, this, this, high body count operation was going to be a necessity. For stopping. What would inevitably be a much much much higher body count later on? And the same goes for the dropping of. The bombs on Nagasaki hero. Shima. They had they weren't the one pulling the cord, they weren't too one piloting, the Nola gay. But all to midly to go ahead and make that decision required. Leadership in this country that was willing to make a big decision and own it. And that decision was we're doing this and the casualty count will be significant. But even if you add in the total casualty count of what is expected in Nagasaki in hero Shima? You know, they, they, they could went after Tokyo, but didn't they targeted these, these smaller cities that were manufacturing hubs? This would end the war quicker. And in the end save lives. And they made that decision. So do I think that members of the military could do what they were asked to do, even in a situation like that? You think those guys landing craft that everything's gonna be fine when they got there. No, they knew better. But they, they did what they had to do and the American public did what they had to do. And I've seen them pull together, even as nastiest things are right now with politics and social media and all the rest of crappy argue about at the end of the day, if an actual disaster hits, what do you see? If nine eleven happens. What do you see for a time, anyway? But during the immediate where it's going on. And the aftermath. I don't see a lot of political discussions. See a bunch of guys. I see Cajun navy running around with one guy wearing a confederate. Bam Danna running around pick it up. Anyone anyone who needs it? That's just one example that stood out where I think that we are sorely lacking, the ability to accomplish what they rebel to accomplish is leaders that have a spine that would be able to make a decision because everything now is a non decision. It's easy for Pelosi to put a Bill forward that she knows will go nowhere in the Senate. That's easy. Go anywhere. Not really making a decision there or to put together something so complex where you gotta bribe each lawmaker along the way, only to not really support it in the long run after that..

"Good morning. Everyone is the seventieth anniversary of d day. We've been fielding some remarkable calls from our listeners who have relatives or memories or stories about World War, Two indeed daily. Let's sneak in a couple more here Brian on Staten Island. Good morning, Brian. Yes. Good morning. Guys doing great. What's your what's your? What's your story? Calling it the fifty story, his father is kinda true. I knew my grandfather never talked about the war at all until its deathbed. And my grandmother told the stories over the years he was captured by the Germans he was shot a the legs things captured by the Germans, and he told us my grandmother that he's never received such good cat. They took care of them. They repay. Matter of fact after the war. He kept in contact with one of the nurses, Germans took care of him. Yeah. Remarkable that's remarkable. They took care of his wounds. He said, even the nurse. Aide may very good. Friends were nurses, and he's in contact with them over the years. Bet is back and forth, going back a long time now but, but he never spoke about the way you couldn't ask him any questions about it, and he really didn't want to get into these last days. You know what he was sick. It's not interesting that you in the previous caller had the exact same story that they didn't want to talk about it at all until their days were numbered interesting. Yeah, my grandmother's uncle was the same way he was in the navy in childhood. Best friend was cut in half in an attack. And the man was never the same since then he passed away a young age. Witnesses best friend, get cut in half seen gunfire. Terrible, and he just never the same that he was always happy, but very withdrawn and very quiet. Never spoke about it either. Thanks. Thanks, brian. Thanks for thanks for calling us. Hey, let's go to Frank Frank Scott, a World War Two memory for us. Good morning, Frank. I think the focus a little bit different. Maybe the famous people that ring, eight, of course, it's James Doohan the actor plates, cutting installed trek. I got to meet him there. He was each stormed. The beach in Normandy games. Yogi berra. Yogi, of course you you'll give very so famous people and some other names that are escaping me right now. No shrew. No, thanks for the call Frank. Because you know, everyone went I mean those, you know may famous baseball players took time out. You know, they wouldn't they went to, you know, Ted Williams, took went to, to wars, the great Red Sox star. Well as a naval pilot, you know who else was there. JD Salinger catcher in the rye. Wow. And allied forgotten this. I knew he was there the actor Charles during really. Yes. Charles Dernie, who was the bother in twitchy. Yeah. He was a day and David Niven the British actor. Yeah. They will Brian and Succo. What is you one of the way you in Brian? What's up? Oh, hi. I'm just calling my father, Frank second army division. And he landed on Normandy, is an LLC. He was a tank commander in Sherman tank, and he landed at four o'clock in the afternoon. The seventh wave to come in and it was still pretty hot at that time. And when he landed the two shrouds on the back of the tank that keep it from don't allow to go into deep water, and they have to be knocked off right away, when you land a well, did you spoke to turn the turn? It's supposed to pop off the cables in Pendle supposed to pop out. Well, they didn't so we at the tank did out there and grab sled chairman slam. Shot at. So it was still pretty hot. That's all I have to say. Well, thank you. I mean it's amazing the what went into putting this invasion. I now is the seventh wave so Yogi Berra. He was seaman second class. And he manned a machine gun during the battle, David Niven, Niven, commanded, the phantom signals unit, and it was responsible for keeping rear commanders. Informed of enemy positions, the civil rights activist Medgar Evers. He was part of the black unit there on d day as well. Yeah, thank you had the rank of sergeant and j d Salinger, the great author, he was there as well. And John Ford, the director of the famous westerns the searchers stages, for sure, he was also part of the, you know, I told you what Yogi told me, you know, you say, what was it like these classic Yogi Berra style. Owes loud. It was like opening day that's really less. And also another one that was on Henry Fonda kidding. He was quartermaster on the destroyer the USS, Sattar Lee, which provided support to the allies during the Normandy invasion. More graphic example how it everybody. Everybody joined everybody volunteered. Everyone went. Yep. That's well that's the no bone Spurs. No no getting out of anything back in those days. Everybody went you wanted to talk about Linda fairstein in the central park. Five. Yeah. Now, she she's the prosecutor who sent the central park five to jail back in the eighties. There's a net flicks. Now it's not a documentary, it's a Netflix Ciroma drama paint her in a very, very bad light. And a lot of people now are demanding that her publisher penguin books drop her that she's had dropped off. Yes. But they want her. They want to grease taken away from her. Now what really disturbs me about this. Is that they're saying this based on a fictional account, you know, of what happened? So, and she has said that the portrayal of her in the movie is not accurate, but people want to destroy this woman because of a fictional account of what she did. And I find that really terrible. I understand what you're saying. But as possible that the fictional account is true. I study what she claims claims the record has been distorted. Now, people forget, though, you know. Not only Donald Trump, and Linda fairstein fought those guys were guilty. Most of New York thought they were guilty and they did confess. There was a confession may have been coerced. But there was a confession. That's what she was working with. And she went in there, because she was head of the sex crimes unit she was standing up for that woman who was the victim of this horrible crime. So to try to have her entire career reputation destroyed because of a negative account of what she did in a fictional version of events, I think is deeply deeply unfair and I can tell you this, because I know some friends of hers, yes, I know her and I was talking to some friends the other day. And she, you know, she's beginning death threats from people because of this Netflix movie. You know, I'm thinking that if what she did would I if I. What's she doing her job job prosecuted? These people that was her job finish. What I'm saying is I did not study the case intently at the time. But what I'm saying is if what she did was, so agrees, then whatever action should have been taken against her or whatever boards. She was taken off of or she dropped at Vassar. Whatever she did she dropped your connection with Vassar where they dropped her. This should have come up at the time when the when, when the when they were exonerated, whenever exonerated, if she had done such an awful job, if the maybe that should have come. So now to come up all these years later based on what you call a fiction fictional. Does it? Well, yeah. But if it could be accurate. No, you're always gonna take dramatic liberties when you're trying to create a compelling miniseries. I just think it's deeply unfair to try to ruin this woman's professional life because the people who created a Netflix series decided to make her the villain of their piece. Just think that's deeply unfair. She didn't see this one coming. I'll bet she's not also yesterday. We're talking about, Tracy Morgan and how he took his two million dollar used for, you know, two million dollars in buy you a new one gets you at us. But Gadi any mealy got into a little Fender bender with this woman. And now I think police have indicated that it wasn't the woman's fault or whatever it is. I'm not I'm not sure what they decided Jocelyn Madeline. She's from New Jersey, the times, you know who he was. But now we have a little bit of audio from her. He.

"And every member of the Star Trek cast, including all three who has since passed away to force Kelly, James Doohan and Leonard nimoy. My question is barring Frei moment the probability that this data. Probably didn't survive. Would it even be legal? If say one of the games producers. To leak a copy of the audio files that someone might have squirrelled away on a hard drive somewhere. I realize it's just a pipe dream and that the tracks Archer likely truly lost a time. But I just thought it would be amazing to listen to all that loss content. Even if the game it was recorded for does not exist, especially given that three of the iconic actors longer with us. I mean, legal almost certainly no. But that doesn't stop stuff from leaking out all the time. And you could probably do it in anonymous enough way. No one's gonna come for you. I don't know speaking as a member of the company that owns Star Trek. I don't actually know should say here. Live long and profits. Right CBS. All are sure. It discovery stores now. Stores. I don't know. I would be way into being able to hear that. Yeah. That would be cool to hell when it got me. A this Email got me thinking, I when I read it was like this guide actually have the shit mission. But then be like, yeah. What is the likelihood that stuff did survive because like interplay is basically just a shell? Interplay kind of win away kind of the name came. Yeah.

I don't think the showed the recordings that you showed him and show him saying bring plenty of cash lips. Yeah. I I've mentioned it before. But it reminds me of the developer. I talked to you one time who squirrelled away a bunch of source code for their game in the ceiling of the rented office. They maybe still as far as he knew. Maybe it's still it was still up in ceiling tile. So I don't know. Maybe those tapes are out there.

That's awesome. And then I used to like a crank from ninja turtles. Silence. Levels crown. The governor's may baggy. And so like they I pulled that one on on like random episode ages lost it.

I'm a people watcher, man. And so like, I would be fascinated by that same then public. That's one of the things. I actually did when I was doing that Star Trek trivia thing. I impersonated never well. But I impersonated James Doohan the actor that plays Scotty because there was a question about the enterprise, and I go, no, bloody A B C order d you know, and so people just like, that's that's when I got light real livened up when I I was recording that or doing that. Event was because I kind of broke the ice there and everybody laughed, and I was like, okay. I think of good, and that's like Judy your element, man. Like that's something that you're good at that set in nature to us. You should be doing that every day do that. I used to do that like impersonating people used to work with. To which was which was fun, especially if they headed like, a deep gravelly voice like this. There was a guy that that talk just like that. And I managed to fool the manager on a phone call. So it was great. But. Technically, I'm supposed to be interviewing you, so. So what are some some projects you have coming up? I noticed that you you had the Microsoft mixer series of of stream collider, and I've kind of seen that in my feed. Periodically just from different people that are attached to it. I didn't even know. I mean, I knew of mixer, but I didn't know that they actually had series coming out for them now. Yes. So I mean every week. I do we have my my show popping off that we do with op culture show to the Atkins wide network. We do it. Tuesdays thursdays. I have you know, episode two of Microsoft mixers stream collider. We are looking to film that in February cannot tell you what the episode is. But we have talked about one of those games at your you're playing, and that's that's my hint of that included. One of the games that we've mentioned before you mentioned a couple of games. But one of those games will be will be in the next episode, which is really exciting. John is a phenomenal host is hilarious, dude. The writers everything but beyond that team or are great until the director sits really citing about that. What else? Unscripted everything we we have some projects we have show right now on animal planet called Amanda to the rescue with with the current, you know, other than I work at. And so yes, and I'm just I a couple of projects right now in the east sports Rome that I'm looking to launch in two thousand nineteen and then just the circuit dude is, you know, kind of running the gamut the comic cons that are coming up as well, as you know. More more more stuff than hoping to produce on mixer. So in that game realm that pop culture Rome, so look into launch a few more shows out there. Awesome. Awesome. Yet. It's I I I think became aware mixer probably six months ago in didn't realize that it was actually a nice alternative to like YouTube gaming and in twitch as well. Oh, mixture twitch EMMY, just these avenues in general are really kind of expanding content, which is it's that's why it is such a great time to be alive. It'd be a creative. There are so many avenues right now that you can actually get your content out of. And that's it if you would kind of tie them all back in if you have that purpose of that mission. Great some good stuff and end creek beds. Stop provoking stuff. There aren't avenues to take that out and mixer is. You know, dish show the stream collider show in general is is combining art duties. Streamers and gamers in bike that are playing, but they're making their money playing video games. You know, we we never thought growing up playing video. We never though that was a possibility. No, I mean, we we always thought we were the nerd that was sitting in her house like playing either Cooper solo lay going. Everybody's telling us. Oh, it's a waste of time. You just playing video games, blah, blah, blah. And and now it's not a waste of time. It's actually a skill set. Absolute skillset USC has their only legends like college team. And so, you know, this show in general with mixtures combining that kind of that streamer with that again that influence to that person that is somehow found a niche to be able to to create an got follow it. I'm it's kind of end. It's merging them, dude. Everyone is a nerd, which is so cool. You know, you just have to embrace it. So many people are still like an it's it's weird that still has that stigma, but it's not meant if you're lucky marvel you're playing video games. Like this the nerd community is so accepting just own it, totally. You actually mentioned about the the eastwards actually local to me. It's like an the next county over something. They're actually going all in for their high school with their athletic department starting in east sports division ruin. Yeah. I mean, it's it's it's crazy. Because you you never would have thought that something like that would have taken place, you know, five ten twenty years ago. But now, that's that's like one. It's it's good because it keeps people out of trouble and kind of keeps their interest involved with something that they're passionate about. And then to like, it's it's, you know, hand eye coordination and just you a lot of teamwork especially if you're playing online, you may not even physically no the person in be exhibiting. Teamwork. Right. And right now to me the way I see a like gaming in general to it's it's also it's next looking in a negative way. But it seemed media winner loss you will have it in your face. You know, I grew up playing sports as well as playing video games. But in growing up playing sports you had the winner in a loser. But it's really it's not as much anymore. But when it comes to gaming, no you have a defined winner. And you have a defined a loser and teaches you to really be accountable for that. And these games that are coming out. Now when you were having the professional leagues the team worked at his involve the communication that is involved. It is making gamers grow up and be a dull and be a lot older than what they seem. You know? You know, there's a there's a reason why a sixteen year old kid or seventy year old kid is still getting paid six figures. Playing video games, they they are still a bit older, and then marketable than they than they really are. But they also have to kind of have that professionalism. They can't be.
