The Star Trek universe is officially launching a new podcast from one of its most iconic actresses. Gates McFadden, who played Dr. Beverly Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation and four subsequent Star Trek films, will host Gates McFadden InvestiGates: Who Do You Think You Are?. The limited series podcast will debut on May 12 and be available through Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Podbean, Amazon Music and more.

“I can’t say I know the ins and outs of podcasting, although I am learning,” McFadden said in a statement, “but I do know how to be funny and silly, serious and truthful, and ultimately, how to have lively conversations with my extraordinary group of close friends from the Star Trek series. And no, we don’t dissect the episodes, we speak about our lives.”

That group of close friends will include other Star Trek veterans such as Jonathan FrakesLeVar BurtonWil WheatonBrent SpinerMarina Sirtis and Denise Crosby, among others. Wheaton, specifically, played Wesley Crusher, the son of McFadden’s character on the show, so that episode should definitely spark some interesting conversation.

The podcast is being produced by NacelleCast, the company that produced Netflix’s The Movies That Made Us and The Toys That Made Us. “We’re deeply honored to be releasing Gates’ first podcast!” said Brian Volk-Weiss, founder and CEO of The Nacelle Company. “I’ve been a Trekkie for over 35 years, and I’ve learned more from these shows than the last 100 conventions I’ve gone to combined!” McFadden’s podcast will be recorded at NacelleCast Studios, which hosts other Nacelle podcasts such as A Toy Store Near YouThe Billy Galaxy PodcastSecret Histories of Nerd Mysteries and For The Culture.
