Special #11: From Baker Street to the Holodeck

[LISTEN] | [DOWNLOAD] (Save Link As)

——————————————

221BConLive2014Spanning centuries of storytelling, the connections between 221B Baker Street as imagined by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the universe of Star Trek created by Gene Roddenberry cannot be ignored!  Trekkies and Sherlockians own a very great deal in common, and in this special panelist episode that took place at 221B Con in Atlanta, 2014, we’ll nerd out over the huge overlap in our Venn diagrams.

Lyndsay Faye is one of several Babes who had loved all things Trek for almost as long as she’s loved all things Holmes.  Join her along with Stephen Seitz (who is a writer, editor, film critic, author of Sherlock Holmes and the Plague of Dracula, and the host of Book Talk) and Lynne Stephens (entertainment journalist and co-creator of one of the very first video mashups of footage from the original Star Trek: The Motion Picture as edited into a musical comedy, which resulted in her being invited to the set of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan by Roddenberry himself).  If you harbor any interest in Spock’s ancient human consulting detective ancestor, or in Data’s turn with a deerstalker, tune in to this special episode!
