Trek Untold Episode 51: Harvey Jason, Felix Leech from “The Big Goodbye” on Star Trek TNG

One of the best episodes from the first season of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” was “The Big Goodbye.” This was the series first intensive look into the holodecks, and it gave us an unforgettable film noir story that featured today's guest, Harvey Jason. Mr. Jason played Felix Leech; a Peter Lorre-inspired character who, along with Lawrence Tierney, terrorize Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner, and Gates McFadden in the first TNG episode to feature Dixon Hill.

 Harvey tells us all about working on this episode, working with the stars, and his impressions of the set and actors. We also discuss another Gene Roddenberry project that Harvey worked on, “Genesis II,” in which he acted alongside Majel Barrett and Ted Cassidy.

These days, Harvey runs a very successful book store with his son, Mystery Pier Books, and tells us all about the celebrity clientele, his favorite books and offers some reading suggestions for you.

 Plus, stories about Michael Caine, and memories of working on “Wonder Woman,” “Charlie's Angels,” “The Love Boat,” the Jurassic Park sequel “The Lost World” with Steven Spielberg, and much more!
