Good episode? Give it some love!
Lycia Naff is known best to Star Trek fans for her two appearances in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" as Ensign Sonya Gomez from the second season episodes "Q Who" and "Samaritan Snare." Meant to be a love interest for Geordi LaForge, things didn't work out for Ensign Gomez after spilling her hot chocolate on Captain Picard. Lycia tells us the behind-the-scenes story about what happened to her character and what happened to the third episode she was meant to appear in that would have changed Geordi's character. Plus, memories of seeing the Borg in their debut appearance, working with the cast & crew, including having to spill hot liquids on Patrick Stewart, and why she believes Ensign Gomez never returned.

You may also recognize Lycia from her role in "Total Recall" as the three-breasted mutant hooker on Mars! Lycia recalls working with Paul Verhoeven and Arnold Schwarzenegger in this iconic and memorable role, with some happy stories and one "explosive" tale.

Lycia explains why she left acting and pursued journalism, leading to one of her biggest stories, when she broke the news about the Bill Cosby sexual assault allegations. We talk about the investigation and the fallout from this story and how it changed the landscape of modern feminism.

Most important, Lycia has some EXCLUSIVE breaking Star Trek news for us that you will not want to miss!

Plus, horror stories of working with Debbie Allen on the "Fame" TV series, sharing the screen with Daryl Hannah in "Clan of The Cave Bear," and riding motorcycles & killing the undead in the B-movie "Chopper Chicks in Zombietown."
