JG Hertzler

Episode 155: Waltz


He was the Prefect of Bajor and later the Leader of the Cardassian Union. On Stardate 51408.6, though, Gul Dukat held another notable title:


…of the United Federation of Planets, and to the voices in his own head.

We’ll take a look at this amazing sixth season episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine with a particular focus on the remarkable performances by Marc Alaimo and Avery Brooks.

Plus, we’ll talk to two Star Trek legends: JG Hertzler and Robert O’Reilly about their upcoming appearance at the Northeast Trek Con at the Albany Capital Center in Albany, NY, October 28-28, 2018! Listen as we try to get a word in edgewise with these two hilarious gentlemen!

Episode 103: J.G. Hertzler


When we started the Trek Geeks Podcast two years ago, we compiled a list of names–those people we’d love to talk to on the show someday.

At the top of Dan’s list was J.G. Hertzler–the actor who played General/Chancellor Martok in 25 episodes Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and appeared as two other characters on that series.

We are honored and humbled to welcome J.G. to the podcast this week!

We’ll talk to J.G. about his time on the show and ask why he thinks that DS9 is enjoying such a resurgence now. We’ll also talk about what it’s like to work with Avery Brooks and also about his “The Left Hand of Destiny” series of novels featuring Martok!

We’ll also find out who the better rapper is: J.G. or actor Robert O’Reilly who played Gowron!

Plus–we’ll have an update on our Cosplay for Good campaign to raise money for the Nevada SPCA and we’ll announce the winners of our Star Trek Cats giveaway!

It’s all in Episode 103 of Your Independent Star Trek Podcast—Q’APLA!!
