Axanar: The Official Podcast (actor interviews)
33: Gabbing with Gary Gra’HAM

Axanar creates connections to the Star Trek that we know and love, and does so in two directions. It bridges the gap between Enterprise and The Original Series, and does so through story, technology, and people. One familiar face is Ambassador Soval … and not just the character, but the man who brought him to life on Enterprise.

In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by that man, Gary Graham, to discuss how he became involved in Axanar, how he got the role of Soval on Enterprise, and how crowdfunding is changing Hollywood. Gary also tells stories of how he first got into acting, what it was like to be a young actor in the 1980s, and even tells you the “correct” way to pronounce his last name.

In news, Rob and Alec are joined by the Goddess of Fulfillment, Diana Kingsbury, for an update on those Axanar perks and recent developments in the production process, and a recap of their visit to Salt Lake City Comic Con.

29: The Price of Leadership

Richard Hatch.

To win a conflict like the Four Years War requires strong leadership, and on the Klingon side, that comes in the form of Supreme Commander Kharn. The old-school, TOS flavor that Kharn brings to Axanar, brilliantly delivered by Battlestar Galactica legend Richard Hatch, has Star Trek fans everywhere talking about how true-to-Trek Axanar is.

In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, hosts Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Richard to talk about the role, why Richard was attracted to the project, and what he hopes to bring to the story. The discussion goes beyond Axanar itself into the realm of why people fight, the toll that conflict takes on leaders, and even why he loves the most recent incarnation of Star Trek.

In our news segment, Alec and Rob also bring you an update on the Indiegogo campaign, the Blu-ray, and a recap of San Diego Comic-Con.

NOTE: There is an audio glitch around the 46-minute mark. It has been left in the show so as not to lose what Richard is explaining. Just think of it as podcasting at warp speed.

11: Wear Your Ribbons Inside

J.G. Hertzler talks Samuel Travis.

In Star Trek: Axanar, the story of The Four Years War is told from both the Federation and Klingon sides of the conflict. And while the USS Ares plays a central role in the war efforts—guided by the reluctant yet inspiring commander Kevlar Garth—other Starfleet figures are key to victory. One of these is Samuel Travis, one of the most senior captains in the fleet. Garth's actions during the war capturing the respect of Travis, a man of few words but an inspiring presence himself.

In this episode of the official Star Trek: Axanar podcast, Alec Peters and Christopher Jones are joined by the man behind Travis, none other than J.G. Hertzler, to learn more about his approach to the character, what drew him to the project, the inspiration for Travis, and J.G.'s own life experiences that play into the role.

In our news segment we get an update from Alec on more "crewing up" as Babylon 5 legend John Iacovelli beings his Emmy Award-winning design talent to Axanar.
