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 Frakes, LeVar Burton, Wil Wheaton, Brent Spiner, Marina 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 You, The Billy Galaxy Podcast, Secret Histories of Nerd Mysteries and For The Culture.
It is appropriate that today is World Theatre Day, so this post comes really on theme with it. It’s just a few pictures but very nice ones of Gates McFadden as Mrs. Malloy, in the play “The Matchmaker” which performed in 1987 from May 26 to June 27 at La Jolla Playhouse.
Okay guys, this is literally the best I could do with these screencaptures, there was actually a lower quality than this so we have to be happy with what we have now.
These are the screencaptures of Gates McFadden episode on 1986 tv show “The Wizard”. Take a look and enjoy!
Simon McKay is a scientist who worked for the U.S. Government on various projects. One day he left and disappeared for a few years. He resurfaced as a toy maker. The government wanting to make sure no one uses his intelligence against the U.S. assigns one of their best agents Alex Jagger to protect him. On Alex’s first day, Simon meets a boy who has cancer. Simon learns that unless he gets a transplant he won’t last long and the only possible donor is his brother who’s an archaeologist. So Simon drags Alex to where his brother is so that he can go back and help the boy. But his brother is being held captive by his benefactor who wants to keep the treasures that was found for himself.
Some months ago I bought this magazine but never had the time – and/or mental organization – to sit down and read it and scan for the site. Finally that day has come and after a minor adjustment on her birthday (no one gets it right, really!), there you go. Find them in the gallery and enjoy.
When I woke up this morning and realized it’s the site anniversary I was shocked myself thinking it’s been already 2 years. TWO YEARS!!! It always seems to me like it all started just yesterday. So much fun, so much love I received from you all and hopefully this is just the second of many more years of fun.
As you might remember from last year, I do enjoy giving gifts on the site anniversary so this year’s gift is HD Screencaptures of Gates McFadden as Doctor Beverly Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation season 4.
A few weeks ago I bought these magazines and I had just now time to give it a look and scan for the site. Aside from a wrong birth date, all seems a good nice reading so enjoy!
The gallery has been updated with over 300 screencaptures of Gates McFadden from her guest episode on Party of Five. Take a look and enjoy!
