SyFy Sistas 2.04: Far Beyond the Stars 24th Anniversary Tribute

A Conversation with the episode writer, Mark Scott Zicree

Far Beyond the Stars, one of the most celebrated episodes in the Star Trek franchise, was written by one of the most creative, thought-provoking, and prolific tv science fiction writers of our time, Marc Scott Zicree. The Sistas sat down with Marc to talk about how the then controversial Deep Space Nine episode made it to the screen, why Avery Brooks had to direct it, and the efforts of the cast and crew to make it as authentic as possible. But Marc told us we could ask him anything, so we touched on the state of science fiction tv today, writing for tv verses films, and what’s coming out of his very own production studio.
