We would like to thank the folks from Starbase Indy for hooking us up with John's interview. Many of you remember that we covered the Starbase Indy convention last year and that we had a blast meeting all of the lovely Trek fans of Indianapolis. In this episode we talk in depth about John's long career in Hollywood as well as some inside baseball topics about the business they call show. Of course, we also talk about John's tenure aboard the NX-01 as the venerable Dr. Phlox.
We’re pleased to announce the fourteenth episode of our “Life After Trek” podcast.

Sorry for the delay in releasing part 2. We had some unforseen technical difficulties that put a kybosh on releasing this episode when we had originally planned.
This time we discuss all of the TNG movies from Star Trek: Generations through Star Trek: Nemesis. We also chat about Enterprise and discover that we all have common thoughts about the show. After that, we even dive into the 2009 J.J. Abrams reboot of our beloved franchise. You definitely won't want to miss that.

In the first part of our discussion, each panelist tells their trek universe introduction story and we also go through each of the Trek series with insightful, funny, and sometimes "inside Trek" conversations about the shows. In true "Best of Both Worlds" fashion, we leave you with a cliffhanger. In the next episode we'll be discussing "Enterprise" and all of the Trek movies. We had a blast recording this episode and hope that you will enjoy this unique conversation.
