Trek Untold-Episode 97: Jennifer Edwards and her Hollywood Legacy

Jennifer Edwards will be remembered by Star Trek fans for her appearance on the TNG episode “New Ground,” but her time in the spotlight is far more diverse than that sci-fi show.

We take a deep dive into Jennifer's past and tell stories about her famous father, Blake Edwards, mother, Patricia Walker, and stepmother, Julie Andrews, and what it was like in a house where it was a typical day to see Peter Sellers, Jack Lemmon, or Cary Grant walk by.

Jennifer tells us how she got the part on Star Trek, working with Micael Dorn and Brian Bonsall and her memories of the set and hanging out with LeVar Burton and Brent Spiner, her reaction to the episode along with a heartfelt note she received about her performance from a fan, and more on the future of her character that never came to be! Throughout Jennifer's career, she also worked with many Star Trek actors and has stories about them all, including William Shatner, Denise Crosby, Jean Simmons, Dana Sparks, and Molly Hagan.

Plus, all about the infamous “Heidi Bowl,” stories from “A Fine Mess” with Ted Danson and Howie Mandel, “The Man Who Loved Women” with Burt Reynolds, fixing another mistake from IMDB, Blake Edwards as a prankster, and the lessons about life and acting he taught his daughter, and what her favorite “Pink Panther” film is.
