Star Trek Las Vegas 2016 Interviews.
One of Star Trek's biggest celebrations takes place each year at the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Organized by Creation Entertainment, the event brings together producers, actors, writers, and others to discuss Star Trek—past, present, and future. This year, the STLV convention was extended to a fifth day in honor of the 50th anniversary.
In this Melodic Treks away mission, host Brandon-Shea Mutala sits down with a few familiar faces to discuss their musical careers outside of Star Trek. J.G Hertzler (Martok) and Robert O'Reilly (Gowron) talk about their Klingon- and Blues Brothers-inspired group. James Darren (Vic Fontaine) discusses how he came to Deep Space Nine. And Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) talks about working with Duke Ellington and shares details of her newest album. Also presented here is composer Jay Chattaway's panel and a chat with Andy Farber—composer for episodes four, five, and six of Star Trek: Continues—in which we discuss the score for "The Man Trap."
