Trek Untold Episode 18: Star Trek TOS Composer Gerald Fried + Angelique & Steven Fawcette from “Unbelievable!!!!!
For the first time on TREK UNTOLD, we are joined by three guests! Up first, we speak with Angelique & Steven Fawcette, the creative team behind the new sci-fi parody movie and Star Trek homage, “Unbelievable!!!!!” which features over 40 actors from five different Star Trek series, along with Michael Madsen, Robert Davi, and Snoop Dogg. Oh, and did we mention a marionette Captain Kirk made by the same team who did the puppets for “Team America“? Yeah, that's there too. The Fawcettes talk to us about working with so many different Trek alumni, the kismet moment that led to Michael Madsen being in it, and give us some behind-the-scenes stories of making the film.
Following that, we speak with Gerald Fried, the last living composer who worked on the original Star Trek series. At 92, Mr. Fried is just as sharp and has a lifetime of great stories, and came out of retirement to make the score for “Unbelievable!!!!!“. Gerald composed five pieces for Star Trek for the episodes “Cat's Paw,” “Shore Leave,” Friday's Child,” “The Paradise Syndrome,” and the unforgettable and often-referenced “Amok Time” – yes, he made THAT song! His resume includes around 200 films & shows, and we discuss a few of these in addition to Trek, including scoring Stanley Kubrick's early films, Gilligan's Island, Roots, and more.
