Trek Geeks #78: Recasting DS9


Recasting DS9This past Spring, we asked the members of our Camp Khitomer group on Facebook to send us their questions for an “Ask Us Anything” episode!

Their questions were fantastic, but there was one we thought could truly be its own episode–we were asked to pick a series and recast the characters with different actors.

Challenge accepted!

This week we’ll recast our favorite series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, with an all new set of actors–and some of the selections may just surprise you!

Plus, we’ll update you on the latest Blu-Ray release in the Star Trek universe and discuss a wonderful essay that highlighted our Trek50 episode!

We hope you’ll join us for an entertaining discussion this week on the Trek Geeks Podcast!

Spock's Brain - Available at FiveYearMission.netWe can’t thank FIVE YEAR MISSION enough. We are truly grateful to them for allowing us to use their music for every episode of Trek Geeks. You really should check them out–they’re writing and recording one original song for each episode of  the classic Star Trek series from the 1960’s.
