Podcast: Babs Olusanmokun talks about that magical Star Trek SNW Episode

The Star Trek posts continue! A couple of episodes ago I spoke to writer, producer and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” Co-Executive Producer Akela Cooper. Then I caught up with Strange New Worlds actress Celia Rose Gooding who plays Uhura. This episode I’m talking to the ship’s doctor Babs Olusanmokun aka Dr. Mbenga about that magical episode 8 that was straight out of a fairytale!

In “The Elysian Kingdom” the entire ship is taken over by an entity that turns Captain Pike and his crew into fairytale characters that suspiciously resemble Dr. Menga’s daughter’s favorite book. I spoke to Olusanmokun about what it’s been like joining this larger than life cast and what this very special episode meant to him.
