Early on the pandemic, Star Trek: Voyager stars Garrett Wang and Robert Duncan McNeill started the Delta Flyers podcast. Each week, the duo watched, recapped, and reviewed an episode of Voyager, making their way through the show chronologically. A few weeks ago, they wrapped things up with the Voyager finale “Endgame,” having rushed to get it all in the proverbial can before the SAG-AFTRA strike started so they wouldn’t leave listeners hanging. Now they’ve announced that the popular podcast will begin a new chapter as they rewatch Star Trek: Deep Space Nine with two stars of that series.
Up next: Deep Space Nine with Terry Farrell and Armin Shimerman
Before reviewing the Voyager finale McNeill and Wang announced (in a video sent to Patreon subscribers) that they finally had a game plan for what they call “chapter two” of the podcast: They’re going to be reviewing Deep Space Nine, joined by their new co-hosts, Terry Farrell and Armin Shimerman. As they did with with Voyager, they’ll bring on a great selection of guests, from series regulars and guest stars to behind-the-scenes pros, with bonus content available to listeners who choose to pay (via Patreon) at various tiers.
More guests coming as they wait out the strike
They can’t start with DS9 until after the SAG-AFTRA strike is over as actors are still prohibited from promoting “struck work,” but they still have a lot of episodes lined up. They posted this note on Patreon:
For September and as long as the SAG strike lasts, we have interviews lined up with Roxann Dawson, Tim Russ, Ethan Phillips, Martha Hackett, and we’ll be adding more as the strike continues. These interviews will focus on them as actors and their personal journey with acting/directing/careers. You’ll get a chance to learn about their professional journey and get to know them as people just a little bit more! And, as soon as the strike is over, we will begin our DS9 watch with Terry Farrell and Armin Shimerman!
