Trek Untold-Episode 145: Concetta Tomei, from “China Beach” to the Delta Quadrant

Concetta Tomei, from “China Beach” to the Delta Quadrant

Concetta Tomei played Minister Odala in the third season “Star Trek: Voyager” episode, “Distant Origins,” but her stories in acting are a little closer to home.

In this uplifting, informative, and inspiring episode, Concetta explains why she left teaching to follow her dream as an actress, memories of her first professional gig in “The Elephant Man” on Broadway with David Bowie, performing in “Max Headroom” with Trek alumni Matthew Frewer, her four years on “China Beach” with Robert Picardo and Jeff Kober, a private performance of Shakespeare with Kevin Cline, amazing acting tips, and sagacious life lessons she's learned over her years of performing at a high level. Plus, there are plenty of stories from her time on VOY, including the makeup, acting theory, and what she took away from her time on set.

Plus, memories of Kevin Conway, AKA Kahless the Unforgettable, Kate Mulgrew, Betty White, and much more!
