Good episode? Give it some love!
Stunts make the show, and on this episode, we dive deep into the world of action for Star Trek. We are joined by Dennis Madalone, the stunt coordinator for "Star Trek: The Next Generation," "Deep Space Nine" and "Voyager."

Dennis first appeared in Star Trek 6 as a Klingon and eventually got a chance to work on TNG, leading him to become a stunt coordinator on the show, and eventually, most of the series during the '90s. We talk about how stunts and action scenes get put together, doubling for actors, the most dangerous stunt he ever did on Trek, the worst day on the job as a Jem'Hadar, who was the best at doing their own stunts, and more from his time in Trek.

Beyond star trek, Dennis has fallen off tall buildings or been hit by cars for shows and films like "The Greatest American Hero," where he doubled for William Katt, "Darkman," "The Guyver," "Army of Darkness," "Pulp Fiction," "The X-Files," and over a hundred other credited projects. We talk about a few of those today, as well as the time he launched Johnny Carson 20 feet in the air with explosions, and of course, we chat about that.

Plus, Dennis became mainstream for a bit thanks to a certain music video he made called "America, We Stand As One," but we will get to that a little later in our conversation, so make sure to listen all the way to the end.
