Jim Arrowood and M. interview Walter Doty, Write for Star Trek: Captain Pike, and Todd Shawn Tei, Director, Writer, and Actor for this project. We at the SciFi Diner have always supported fan projects.  Quite frankly we just want to see more Trek. If you are with us in this and like what you hear in our discussion with the creators of this project, then please visit their indigogo campaign and support the project. You can also follow them on their facebook page and their twitter.  Below you can read a description of the project from their indigogo page.


This is the story of Captain Pike when he first takes command of the Enterprise and his first mission aboard her. And with your help, it will lead into a Captain Pike Web Series.

Christopher Pike is the Captain seen in the original Star Trek Pilot The Cage, played by Jeffrey Hunter. He was Captain of the Enterprise before Captain Kirk. And his story has never been told in film, until now.

In the original Star Trek Pilot, The Cage, set in the year 2254. Captain Pike and his crew are returning from Rigel VII, where several members of the landing party were killed by the inhabitants.

The incident filled Pike with so much guilt that he is considering resigning his commission. But thats all we know about Captain Pike, and we want to know so much more. Dont you?

This is an independent film project that will be helmed by professionals who all work in the entertainment industry. From cast and crew to writers, director, producers and actors.


THE LEAD CAST OF CAPTAIN PIKE

In our film, we will answer these questions about Captain Pike:

1. What happened on Pikes first mission with his female first officer, and his science officer, Mr. Spock?

2. Did Pike ever go into battle?

3. Which alien race did he encounter before any other Starfleet Captains? We know Captain Pikes father is Admiral Josh Pike, but we never learned about the Admiral and which starship he commanded.

We never learned about many of the federation Captains that we saw in Star Trek TOS or their descendants.

In this film, well answer all the questions youve always wondered about. And youll see many famous Starfleet officers at the beginning of their illustrious careers.

Mentor is mugged in the RV and the only witness is a young boy who refuses to talk.  Can Billy convince him otherwise or will Mentor's attacker come back to make sure the boy never speaks?

"Snitches dig ditches" is a common phrase among the young today, sadly, but it seems to hold true with young Larry Burns.  In this episode, John and Richard discuss the responsibility of youth to step forward and report wrongdoing, the question of powerful beings granting insight into potential danger, and the difficult stunts Jackson Bostwick had to perform.

The Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast A Tribute to Christopher Lee

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THE EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Dan Persons says:

No life is forever, not even that of the man who played immortal vampires, mouldering corpses, and psychotic satanists. Christopher Lee had so permanently placed his mark on the world of fantastic film that his death this past week sent a shock wave through film fandom, so assured were we that he’d always be around to bring his wit, gravity, and class to the likes of Dracula, Saruman and Kharis.

In the wake of his loss, Cinefantastique contributors Ted Newsom, Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons got together to reminisce about encounters with the legendary actor, share some famous and not-so-famous anecdotes about his work and life, and evaluate his contribution to the worlds of horror and fantasy.

The Chronic Rift Spotlight: Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THE EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Our long delayed look at the various incarnations of the Doctors on Doctor Who continues with a discussion of the Peter Davison era.  Having some great shoes to fill, Davison had his work cut out for him, but he managed nicely in the three years he played the role.  John is joined by Keith DeCandido and Krissy Myers to discuss the companions, the Doctor's story arc through the three years culminating in "Caves of Androzani", the Fifth Doctor as a bridge between the old and new series, and of course, episodes to watch out for.  We even remembered to talk about The Master.  Well, Keith and Krissy did.

Presenting the Transcription Feature: THE THIN MAN & X-MINUS ONE

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THIS EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Dashiell Hammett’s Nick and Nora Charles, the supposedly-retired PI and his socialite wife, heroes of his mystery novel The Thin Man, appeared on film, television, and, of course, radio.  The New Adventures of The Thin Man was a radio incarnation that emphasized the duo’s trademark witty repartee and underplayed the criminal violence.  This episode is about a missing dog, but still manages to work in boxing and gambling.  Then Old Time Radio’s premier science fiction anthology series, X Minus One, adapts a classic tale by Robert Heinlein, “The Roads Must Roll.” In a future where the highways became so crowded that we gave up cars in exchange for high-speed conveyor belt roads as our preferred mode of transport, one man stands alone against radicals seeking to take down the system.

WCRS Radio Stage: "Solutions by Hollinger"

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THE EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Welcome to a new audio drama anthology series here on The Chronic Rift Network!  David Binkley is the producer and director of the WCRS Radio Stage program.  He has always loved old radio dramas so in 2000 when Written Communications Radio Service, a radio reading service for the blind, took their studios to digital he started preparing scripts that could relive those thrilling days of yesteryear. He assembled friends and volunteers and they laid down the voice tracks with sound effects and music inserted in post production.

The thought was to produce a half hour drama a month.  An ambitious goal considering that there was NEVER a regular radio drama series EVER broadcast out of Akron, Ohio.  Over the next twenty-four months they were able to produce twenty-two stories,  After that they put together an occasional story - mostly at Christmas.

Author Michael Giorgio crafts a story about a company that states that they can end all your problems - whatever they are.


The HTD Express: #34 - The Accidental Caregiver: An Interview With Gregor Collins

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THE EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"What happens when you discover a powerful emotional connection to someone three times your age? Gregor Collins tells us in his open and honest memoir “The Accidental Caregiver” which was turned into a stageplay that premiered in January 2015. In 2008, Gregor found himself employed as caregiver to famous Holocaust refugee Maria Altmann. What occurred from there was an unexpected journey which opened up Gregor’s mind and heart in ways he could not have predicted.

Gregor Collins is a writer, actor and producer based out of New York City. Like myself, he’s got an extensive career in the world of reality TV. The Accidental Caregiver and other works has propelled Gregor’s career in new directions that have made him realize that living the creative life means taking control of your own destiny. During this interview we talk about the emotional honesty needed to be an artist but also the courage to stop waiting and start doing. Enjoy."

The Batcave Podcast: Episode 41 - "The Joker's Last Laugh/The Joker's Epitaph"

(RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THIS EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER)

Aired February 15/16, 1967

The Joker returns to Gotham City with a scheme to take over one of the major financial institutions of the metropolis.  And he's engaged the services of a group of unusual goons to help him - a group of robots.  These robots are stronger and faster than the Dynamic Duo, but they're also mute, save for Mister Glee.  This gives Josie, the moll, more of a role in this episode.  And as all this is going on, Batman schemes to thwart Joker, but his plan backfires and he finds that he's placed Bruce Wayne in financial and mental jeopardy.

 

Joining John to discuss this episode is longtime Batman 66 fan, Robert Long.
