Spocklight: A Star Trek Podcast

Supplemental 9: Interview with Roger Lay Jr.

March 26, 2018

In a special episode, Spocklight presents an in-depth interview with the man behind bringing Star Trek: The Next Generation’ and ‘Enterprise’ to Blu-Ray, Roger Lay Jr.

Hear how Roger went from Trek fan to Trek creator, pursuing a desire to bring back the ambitious, multi-part documentary format to home video resulting in 'The Genesis Effect: Engineering the Wrath of Khan', 'Star Trek: The Journey to the Silver Screen', 'The Roddenberry Vault' and many more.

We also talk his beginnings at USC and how interning on hit sitcom, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ led to him producing his first documentary at 21 years of age chronicling Ray Romano’s return to the stand up circuit for HBO.

All that and how he got William Shatner himself to voice a talking plant in his latest project for Netflix, an adaptation of Bruce Coville’s classic childrens book, ‘Aliens Ate My Homework’ and his future hopes for 4K versions of the original Trek Movies and a DS9 Blu-Ray release.
