"Trek Untold" is the Star Trek podcast that goes beyond the stars! This show features guests including character actors, stunt performers, directors, writers, VFX artists, and the behind-the-scenes people who make the Star Trek universe boldly go where no sci-fi franchise has gone before.

    05: Iona Morris

    05: Iona Morris

    How many actors can say they appeared on TOS and VOY? Not many and today's guest is one of them. Iona Morris is the daughter of "Mission Impossible" star Greg Morris, and that led her to her acting debut on the TOS season one episode, "Miri." From there, acting would take a backseat to other things, but all roads eventually led back to performing in front of a lens, and Iona would make her return to Trek in the VOY two-parter "Workforce" over 30 years after her first appearance.

    We discuss being cast in these roles, what it was like on the set of TOS and how William Shatner was with kids, the on-screen moment from that episode that wasn't acting, sharing the screen with Robert Duncan McNeill in VOY, and what went wrong during her performance in that episode.

    Plus, Iona talks about her enormous voiceover career in anime before it was in the mainstream, becoming the voice of Storm on the X-Men animated series from the 90s, being directed by horror icon Wes Craven, the valuable lesson she learned from Angela Lansbury on "Murder, She Wrote," acting on "Moesha" and "Homeboys in Outer Space," and being a part of the hit ABC series "Blackish."

    04: Deborah May

    04: Deborah May

    Sometimes, being typecast in Hollywood means being stuck in an unsavory role that you don't want to do. For some lucky people, they find amazing roles in the same vein, and Deborah May is one of those actresses who has had the joy of playing a strong female protagonist in much of her work.

    On today's episode, we talk about how Deborah went from beauty pageant queen to actress, and how that road led her to two appearances on Star Trek series - First, her role as Haneek in the haunting DS9 episode "Sanctuary," and then as the matriarch Lyris in the VOY episode "Favorite Son." We discuss being cast in these roles, the differences between performing with Avery Brooks and Kate Mulgrew, her on-screen rapport with Nana Visitor, and working with her friend Rene Auberjonois. We also hear about how Deborah was ALMOST Captain Janeway in Voyager, and what Kate had to say to Deborah when she found out.

    Plus, working with Betty White on "The Golden Girls" and Patty Duke in her autobiographical movie "Call Me Anna," Patrick Fabian, who would go on to be in "Better Call Saul," and playing another powerful female leader as Natania on "The Walking Dead."

    03: Harry Judge

    03: Harry Judge

    If you watched "Discovery," you've seen this week's guest a few times - you just didn't know you were looking at him! Harry Judge has played multiple Tellarites in the first season of Disco under heavy prosthetics, including Admiral Gorch and Tevrin Krit. Our interview with him turned into a true master class of how to perform a role while completely covered up and weighed down by crazy costumes and make-up!

    Harry talks about growing up in Canada, and how he became a Shakespearean trained actor, leading up to his roles in Star Trek. We chat the process of being suited up as an alien, what they don't tell you about wearing prosthetics, meeting Doug Jones, how to become a Tellarite and his process to transform into character, and working with Rainn Wilson on the Short Trek episode, "The Escape Artist." It's a very in-depth discussion that is an amazing resource for anyone interested in acting!

    Plus, working on his first movie role alongside Dan Aykroyd, Dave Foley, and Dave Thomas, being starstruck on "Suits," playing Curt Guyette in the critically acclaimed TV movie "Flint," and his roots on the stage.

    02: Ursaline Bryant

    02: Ursaline Bryant

    Ursaline Bryant played Captain Tryla Scott in TNG, a character who was the fastest officer promoted to captain in Starfleet history. You may remember her from the controversial season one episode, "Conspiracy," which is also one of the oddest entries in the entire Trek series.

    Ursaline chats with us about her work before and after her time on Trek, what it was like working with Patrick Stewart and Jonathan Frakes, taking her own fall from a phaser blast, eating from a cup of "worms," and being a part of Star Trek history.

    Plus, being locked in a jail cell as a prostitute with "The Golden Girls," working with Redd Foxx, being trained by the legendary Mildred Burke to have an intense pro wrestling match in "All The Marbles" with Peter Falk, not breaking character on "Seinfeld," and her dramatic roles in "Flood Streets" with Harry Shearer, her love of Billie Holiday, and - who is Calafia?

    01: Kaitlin Hopkins

    01: Kaitlin Hopkins

    In our debut episode of "Trek Untold," we chat with a person who knows a few things about dealing with Starfleet, whether it's peaceful negotiations or straight-up scamming them! Kaitlin Hopkins appeared in DS9 and Voyager in two memorable episodes, but beyond that, she has appeared in many other TV shows, movies, and theatrical productions.

    We take a deep dive into her past to discuss growing up around Hollywood and the theater world, and what led her into acting. From there, we learn about her roles in Trek as the Vorta alien Kilana in the DS9 episode "The Ship" and Dala the grifter in the VOY episode "Live fast and Prosper," her on-screen rapport with Avery Brooks, the differences between the two sets and acting with Brooks and Kate Mulgrew, Jem'Hadar soldiers passing out from the California sun, and the deleted scene from her VOY episode that she wishes was kept in.

    Plus, working with Angela Lansbury on "Murder, She Wrote," Dick Van Dyke on "Diagnosis Murder," and Jane Seymour on "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," being in the bizarre off-Broadway musical "Bat Boy" and how she met her husband there, becoming head of the musical theater department at Texas State, and her advice for aspiring actors.
