A new podcast about Star Trek: The Next Generation is coming soon and will feature interviews with several of its popular cast members. The Next Generation is a fan-favorite show with a long history and has proven to stand the test of time as audiences new and old continue to clamor for more Star Trek content. Since The Next Generation ended, there have been numerous novels, comics, and podcasts released, expanding upon the show’s lore.
Now according to Comicbook, there’s a new podcast coming, which will be hosted by Gates McFadden, the actress best known for playing Dr. Beverly Crusher. This series promises to offer behind-the-scenes stories about the golden age of Star Trek as McFadden records one-on-one interviews with her previous co-stars. Instead of talking about the show itself, she plans to explore more about the lives of the actors in question stating, “We don’t dissect the episodes, we speak about our lives.” The series will be titled InvestiGates: Who Do you Think You Are?
The Nacelle Company is the studio producing this podcast. They are the same company producing the upcoming Star Trek History documentary series. The Nacelle Company also just recently opened a new studio space that has been described as “State-of-the-art,” so expect the audio quality of McFadden’s podcast to be high.
The list of guests that McFadden will be interviewing includes Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Will Wheaton, Brent Spiner, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn, John Delancie, Robert Picardo, Michael Westmore, Nana Visitor, Denise Crosby, and more. Having Star Trek actors like Will Wheaton is huge for the podcast. With so many actors making an appearance, each Star Trek: The Next Generation fan should have an interview to looking forward to. InvestiGates: Who Do you Think You Are? comes out this May.
