Is the fandom finally ready for a Sista in the Seat?
A Black female lead on the bridge is an idea that sent a vocal minority of Star Trek fans into a feedback loop. But relax, because Michael Burnham is really our hero, James T. Kirk!
Latina/Klingon B'Elanna Torres of Star Trek: Voyager and Belter Naomi Nagata of The Expanse are our favorite chief engineers. Besides being two of the smartest characters in sci-fi, they also have enthralling story arcs that border on 'messy.' But who would want with you in a firefight?
It’s STNG’s fan-favorite “Darmok” and an episode of Doctor Who called “Midnight.” Both episodes examine the frustration and fear induced by the inability to communicate. But the REALdrama is will J.D.’s diabolical episode pairing turn Tamia and Subrina into Tardis-loving Whovians?
The Sistas discuss the impact of the 1997 TV movie Cinderella, starring Brandy Norwood and Whitney Houston, on multiple generations of Black women. Did the Whitney Houston production of this classic fairy tale with its color-blind cast help lay the foundation for Black leading ladies to come?
From Kirk and Spock to Burnham and ??? What makes this unique and critical relationship work. What characteristics are common to the leaders of each franchise, and what makes their union stand out? Join Fran T, Tamia, and Subrina for a discussion of the dynamic duos of Star Trek.
We said we had a BIG surprise and it is epic. Our very first guest is none other than Mr. Cirroc Lofton who played Jake Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Happy Valentine's Day!
The SyFy Sistas kick off Black History Month, 2021, as guest hosts on the Trek Geeks Podcast Network. The topic for this honor is, of course, a session discussing the sista who start it all, Lt. Uhura.
In this there is a mini art history lesson, shout outs to the second unit crew, FranT's love of Miss Ryan, and Tamia's onpoint head scatchers. Will the Sistas like the end of dear friend?
