Listen to Episode 107: Immortality
Immortality: A toy which people cry for,
And on their knees apply for,
Dispute, contend and lie for,
And if allowed
Would be right proud
Eternally to die for.
Do you have inside you blood of kings? Can no man be your equal? Are you a god? (Remember, Ray, say yes!) Or have your lips recently turned blue and you find yourself with an overwhelming need to petulantly harass a balding Englishman with a French name?
Then this week’s episode is for you!
From vampires to Cylons to Q to work currently being undertaken by groups like the Immortality Institute “to conquer the blight of involuntary death,” the Admiral and Ro discuss the concepts, reality, genre representations, and general pursuit of eternal life. Who wants it? Who thinks there’s no room for it? Who’s ready with a bowl and spoon for their first heaping helping of Soylent Green? Tune in to find out!
If you are lining up for your first crack at a positronic upload or a sip of Lisle Von Rhuman’s eternal elixir, here are some tasty nuggets of geekery to fill all that time you’ll find yourself possessing:
The first look at The Amazing Spider-Man!
Ridley Scott’s return to the sci-fi horror genre!
That Superb Owl commercial that features all those Marvel comics dudes who got their own individual movie (or two…shout it out if you’re green and loud or a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist!)…plus that Black guy with the eye patch and the chick in the pleather onesie!
And, settle in for the long haul with this one, kiddies!

Listen to Episode 103: Noelle Hannibal.
The Admiral welcomes back to the Starbase actress/musician/demon/Vulcan/possessor of infinite grooviness, Noelle Hannibal. Listen in as Noelle shares stories about her appearances on genre fiction favorites, including her turn as a denizen of darkness on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode “The Zeppo” and as the first female Vulcan to visit Earth in First Contact.
"What part of 'no autographs' don't you understand?"
Not even Vulcans can resist the charms of James Cromwell.
She also talks about “copyrighted ears,” fan mail, her convention circuit adventures, James Marsters, and the “intimate apparel” story she shares with Stan Lee. It’s a story you won’t want to miss, True Believers!
The Starbase crew encourages you to listen to Noelle’s return to the Starbase and then check out her album, Somewhere In Between, available for purchase through Amazon.com, AmazonUK, iTunes, and her Web site, NoelleHannibal.com.
Noelle continues to support the efforts of Montreal’s T3: Triple Threat.
Geek Correction for This Episode: The Starbase crew does know that it was Andrew Robinson and not Anthony Robinson who played plain and simple Garak. Sometimes, however, the hamster that runs our Trek Trivia nodule gets sleepy and simply cannot match speeds with our speech processors.
