CHASE MASTERSON
OFFICIAL FAN CLUB

Star Trek Host: Welcome to the Ferengi Family Chat! We're honored to be chatting today with Grand Nagus Rom, his lovely wife Leeta and his Starfleet Lieutenant son Nog.

Rom: Hello brother, oops, sorry, I meant to say "Hello everybody." Quark has me too well trained ...

Leeta: Hello, everyone ... ! No, I have him too well trained ...

Nog: I'm definitely not trained. I have issues with that.

Question: Leeta is such a babe, and Rom is, well ... Rom. What does she see in him anyway?
targcatcher

Rom: Everybody should see how fetching my wife Leeta looks!

Leeta: Oh, Rom. It got me many more episodes. No, just kidding. Rom is lovely on the inside, and well, not bad in other departments.

Q: Leeta, have you thought about opening a bar or restaurant on Ferenginar?
jeromer

Leeta: Actually, since I'm a liberated female — but I'm also the First Lady and need to follow Ferengi rules — I've opened the first Ferenginar Victoria's Secret.

Rom: Now we should pass a law saying females are allowed to wear clothes, especially night-time clothes.

Leeta: We prefer that to be optional.

Rom: We should be careful to see if there are any children chatting — You have to be 18 to enter this chatroom! Eighteen year-old children are fine, 34 year-old children are even better.

Q: Nog, do you hope to command your own starship one day?
danG

Nog: Of course. Are you kidding? I've already done it in one time line.

Nog: As long as I can have all dabo girls as my crew!

Nog: Since my mom is an ex-dabo girl, I've got a plethora of girls to choose from.

Leeta: Sit down, Nog.

Q: What do you think Rom and Leeta's baby would look like? Bajoran nose, Ferengi ears ... ? And would the child be brought up to respect latinum, or the Prophets?
SciFiScully

Nog: It would be brought up to respect me!

Leeta: I've often pondered that ... I don't know ... cleavage with ears? I think Ferengi birth control is a very good idea.

Nog: I don't think it's possible for a human and Ferengi to mate and actually have a child.

Q: What is it like being the Grand Nagus? What changes/reforms have you instituted?
JMorales

Rom: Right now it's a little bit of a party. There's a lot of partying going on. Lots of balls. And everybody has been so nice to me. Asking me about my health ... if I have any dangerous, deadly diseases, or if I want any dangerous deadly diseases. That kind of thing.

Nog: You hold a lot of balls, huh?

Rom: But the real work of cleaning up Ferenginar is just in the planning stages, with my Kitchen Cabinet.

Rom: I call them my Tube Grub Cabinet.

Q: It's obvious that the Ferengi have learned much from humans. What can humans learn from Ferengi?
skyotter

Nog: Oomox!

Rom: Rule of Acquisition Number Ten: Greed is Eternal.

Leeta: No, I think humans already know that.

Q: Rom, what is the worst joke that your brother ever played on you?
Ensignsunburn

Nog: Didn't he tie your lobes together?

Rom: The worst joke that Quark ever played on me? I pass. When he tied my lobes together, Ow, that hurt!

Rom: That was for not diluting the Saurian Brandy. If you don't dilute the Saurian Brandy enough, he gets real mad.

Q: What is your favorite Rule of Acquisition?
darkshadow

Leeta: #223: Beware the man who doesn't make time for oomox. (Lolita, why are you laughing?)

Nog: The bigger the smile, the sharper the knife!

Nog: Once you have their money ... you never give it back. And that includes husbands!

Rom: You know, as Nagus I have someone who knows all the Rules, so I don't really have to know them myself. But I think it's Number 46 or 48, "The bigger the smile, the sharper the knife." I have a personal assistant who always has the Rules with him, so I'm a little off the hook on having to know them as Nagus.

Q: Is there anything else that Ferengi like other than money?
mikejmoe

Rom: More money! What's better than money is MORE money!

Nog: Women, lots of women!

Rom: I think even more than money, Ferengi value the "art of the deal."

Rom: It's the science of business that intrigues us and that is what we're trying to improve upon.

Q: Nog, did you ever change your tactics regarding non-Ferengi women? Any new girlfriends latley?
Yangtzeekiang

Nog: Well, I reserve my Ferengi ways for at least a second date. With that said, no. I'm not too popular with the women of Starfleet. I don't have time for women right now ... at least not that kind of woman. I've got a career to focus on. I don't need any birds flying by ... any distractions.

Q: What aspects of Ferengi culture would you like to see on Earth?
cassiopia_

Nog: No clothes for women!!!

Leeta: Sit down, Nog.

Rom: Oomox parlours. You guys don't know what you're missing.

Rom: A better behaved stock market.

Leeta: Better insider trading.

Q: Have you made any good aquisitions lately?
the_emissary

Rom: You mean, since Leeta?

Leeta: Oh, Rom.

Rom: We're looking for a home on Ferenginar but the real-estate market is, at the moment, over valued.

Rom: I mean, since the Nagus lives in a palace, we're looking for a secondary residence.

Q: To Leeta, why didn't it work out with Julian Bashir? What was it about Rom that did work out? Wouldn't you prefer someone closer to your own height?
sidfan

Leeta: Well, good things come in small packages ... besides, Julian and I were way too Barbie & Ken.

Q: Rom, do you get Leeta to pre-chew your tube-grubs for you?
Sfcommand

Rom: One has to make compromises in marriage. Part of our pre-nuptial agreement states that Leeta would never have to put anything in her mouth she didn't want to.

Leeta: Darn straight.

Nog: That's when I leave the room.

Nog: I got tired of chewing his food!

Rom: When I really need something chewed, I go to Moogie.

Nog: Mothers will do anything for their sons. Q: Rom, how is Moogie?
captainc

Rom: Moogie is part of the new administration, helping us plan the changes we want to implement on Ferenginar.

Q: Now we have Nog in Starfleet, do you think we will soon have more Ferengi in Starfleet?
michaos

Nog: Yeah, but none as good as me!

Q: Rom who do you think would win if the Klingon and Federation went to war?
whiteknight8669

Rom: I have to put all of my substantial wealth on the Federation.

Nog: The Ferengi. War is good for business.

Q: For Leeta — how does your own (Bajoran) family get along with their (Ferengi) in-laws?
skyotter

Leeta: Sniff! I'm a Bajoran war orphan, so there's no one else but Rom ...

Nog: I've got my eye on her cousin.

Q: Rom is there anything that you do not like about being Grand Nagus?
captainc

Rom: Well, all the security that follows me around, trying to protect my life.

Leeta: That's just to balance all the insecurity.

Rom: I think when they want to get me, they're going to get me.

Rom: Also, the gold-pressed Latinum plumbing is a bit much.

Q: Do Ferengi wear boxers, briefs or do they "go commando"?
pelgarfan

Leeta: Uh-oh.

Nog: I wear Superman under-roos.

Rom: We wear exactly what the Scottish Hew-Mon males wear under their kilts.

Q: Just how many strips of gold-pressed latinum would it take to sell out a family member? How much for your entire family?
usetheforce30

Leeta: For Nog? Any offers?

Nog: I love stepmoms.

Nog: I already got someone who's paying me on layaway for Leeta.

Leeta: It'll take years.

Leeta: Prinadora's for sale ...

Nog: He would never sell me out. I love my father too much.

Nog: If I got rid of my uncle, I wouldn't have free root beer. So it's in my best interest to keep him around. It's not good business to sell out my father.

Nog: Or my uncle. But Leeta? Mmmmm ... She's got too many connections.

Rom: Although Rule of Acquisition #6 says, "Never allow family to stand in the way of opportunity," I love my own family and no amount of strips could turn me against them. Now, if you're talking BARS ... write back.

Q: Leeta, do you still keep in touch with your friends from DS9 like Nerys, etc? And if you do, how are they these days?
Torrez

Leeta: Well, Kira's been on Broadway, so we don't see her ... but I keep getting stalker letters from Brunt ...

Rom: Ich frage mich, gibt es einen deutscher da?

Q: Why can't Ferengi women wear clothes?
darktribbel21

Rom: To get to the other side.

Leeta: Rom!

Nog: Why would we want them to?

Rom: There are no female clothing stores yet on Ferenginar.

Leeta: We're changing all that. Check out our new catalog. It's, well, out of this world. Leeta'sSecret.com

Rom: Although the 99-cent store sells towels.

Q: Nog, who's command style would you like too emulate when you get command?
capttorbs

Nog: Nobody's. I want to do my own command style!

Leeta: He'll have to, in order to be able to reach the controls.

Q: What was Zek like, personally?
iceplanetzeo

Rom: He was a Nagus of a man.

Rom: Most people thought his breath stank, but to me it was rather sweet. He's been very helpful in getting the new administration under way as well.

Rom: And he had an infectious laugh (heeee heeeee heeeeee heeeee heeeee!).

Leeta: He really needs a manicure.

Leeta: He's always in the store, shopping ...

Q: Do you guys know Pelgar?
mikejmoe

Leeta: Who?

Rom: Who?

Rom: Does he give love-advice between Ferengi and other alien species?

Leeta: Why, Rom, gotta problem?

Nog: We all have a problem with it.

Q: How's Quark doing?
spbass

Leeta: Constipated, as usual.

Nog: He's working more than us.

Leeta: Speak for yourself!

Rom: He's holding down the Ferengi fort as the last bastion of ultra-conservative Ferengi captialism.

"The Ferengi Family"
07.25.02

Ferengi Family

Star Trek Host: Please welcome DS9's Aron Eisenberg ("Nog"), Max Grodénchik ("Rom")and Chase Masterson ("Leeta"), plus former Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Preproduction Associate and Star Trek: Voyager Preproduction Coordinator Lolita Fatjo, all four of whom appear at Star Trek conventions with the self-produced "Ferengi Family Hour."

Question: What/Who did you rely on for a "Ferengi" reference? Did you watch stuff from TNG or did you develop the characters of the Ferengi on your own (with the writers help)?
admiral911

Aron EisenbergAron Eisenberg: Armin Shimerman was my guide. He was a lot of help.

Max Grodénchik: My roommate Daryl in 1990, before I did my first Next Generation, told me what a Ferengi was. I didn't believe him, but when I did what he said, everybody liked it. I also watched a couple of early Ferengi TNG episodes and that helped.

Q: What can you tell someone who's never seen "The Ferengi Family Hour" to make them wish they had?
Skyotter

Max GrodénchikMax: You haven't seen "The Ferengi Family Hour" even once?!!! What planet are you on? It's a musical romp through the Alpha Quadrant featuring Nog, Leeta, Moogie and Rom.

Lolita Fatjo: And a special appearance by Rom's first wife, Prinadora. You have to see it, it's a lot of fun!

Max: Yeah! I think you should try to find someone who's seen it.

Chase MastersonChase Masterson: Let's just put it this way — we usually have even more fun than you.

Q: Lolita, could you tell me where I can see "The Ferengi Family Hour"?
CookieMnstr

Lolita: The Slanted Fedora convention on Friday night, August 16, in Washington D.C. and Friday night, October 11, in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, also at the Slanted Fedora convention, and the Sacramento Creation Convention in January 2003. [date tbc].

Max Grodenchik and Chase MastersonMax: Bielefeld, Germany for Galileo VII, first weekend of November, be there!

Aron: And we're going to be in Iceland too!

Q: Any chance the show may come to the UK?
Spbass

Aron: We're working on that. And Japan. I want to go to Japan.

Lolita: We did it in London last year. We'd love to bring it back again. It was at the Radisson Heathrow, Odyssey convention. I think.

Q: Chase, what's it like hosting that "Geek" contest you have? I know the guys must like it, but how about you?
Johanan

Chase: It's hilarious. These geeks are very sexy. And funny. You should apply. Um, no offense there.

Aron: I heard she does it in the nude!

Q: What's the most ridiculous thing a fan has asked you at a convention?
Odin42

Chase: That's printable?

Lolita: I have too many things to even begin ...

Aron: I had someone actually lick my ear once. True story!

Max: "Would you sign my breasts?"

Q: How does it feel to be a part of Star Trek history?
Cassiopia

Lolita: For me, it was life-changing.

Aron: Amazing!!!

Chase: Pretty much. I'm very, very thankful. How else could we be sitting answering embarrassing questions to millions of people online? ;-)

Max: I concur, amazing. It's been a huge part of my life and I can't begin to describe how many positive ways it has affected me.

Q: Max, Aron, Chase ... What would you say is your favorite line you've ever had to say in Star Trek? Ms. Fatjo, being a script coordinator, what's your favorite line you've ever come across?
Yangtzeekiang

Lolita: Mine's not a favorite line from an episode that was produced, but it was a title from a spec script submitted to TNG, called "Elvis Meets the Enterprise."

Aron: "I know who could tell us what self-sealing stem bolts are."

Chase: Onscreen? My favorite line, repeated in EVERY episode: "Oh, Rom."

Max: "If you ever do anything to hurt my son again, I'll burn the bar to the ground!" Something like that, I said to Quark in an episode called "Facets." I also liked when Quark dared me to ask Leeta out, and Rom says "Helloooooooo Leeeeeeta ... Bye-eeee!"

Q: So what have you all been up to since DS9 finished?
Talkingtricorder

Max: Working on "The Ferengi Family Hour," I think. And writing my Star Trek memoirs, entitled "My Brother's Barkeep."

Chase: Lots! Workwise, I just finished the lead in two features, "Terminal Invasion" on the Sci-Fi Channel on September 14, and "Inhuman" a fabulous film where I ride a motorcycle and shoot lots of guns. Also, check out Deep Space Explorer on Space.com ... it's a fabulous interactive trip through the universe. I narrate. It's very cool.

Aron: Raising my two boys. Being the best father I can be.

Lolita: I book actors for Star Trek conventions, and we've been taking "The Ferengi Family Hour" all over the world. Currently, I'm working on the new series called The Dead Zone, created by Michael Piller.

Q: What is it like to wear those ears?
Michaos

Aron: It's like wearing a helmet all day. But you never feel anything there.

Max: You touch yourself a lot there.

Chase: And you admit it?

Max: Your real ears begin to itch and you want to scratch, but you can't. So it's a little frustrating.

Q: Are any of you going to be guest-starring in the new series, Enterprise?
who_cares

Chase: Would you like us to?

Aron: Not unless you know something I don't.

Max: They already had a Ferengi episode and there was no Rom. They had Jeff Combs, Clint Howard, Ethan Phillips and some other guy, but it wasn't me. At least I don't think it was me.

Q: Chase, did you get to keep your Bajoran earring?
Sfcommand

Chase: I did, in fact. But don't tell the guys at Star Trek. Aron: I still have my teeth. I'm wearing them right now, actually. :)

Max: They told me not to take anything until the final shot was made, then I went in after the final shot and everything was gone.

Q: What kind of music do you all like?
Giventofly462

Max: All kinds of music. I like all kinds, I'm trying to get into rap and hip hop, if anyone can help me, please write back.

Chase: I love jazz. I sing music of the 30's, 40's, and 50's ... doing a CD ... check out my Web site www.chaseclub.com/cd.htm if you'd like.

Aron: I like a lot of alternative and modern rock. And classic rock.

Lolita: I like all the music that Max writes.

Q: Would any of you want to be an alien character again, or would that depend on the amount of make-up that needs doing?
fleet_legate_calhoun

Aron: I would do it. (I had a lot of fun playing Nog.) As long as it was a good character. Also, a good story and some good scenes.

Chase: I agree. It can be a fun challenge — I'd imagine — needing to convey so much without your full face available, focusing on voice, etc. I'd love to. Max: When you're an out-of-work actor, any job looks pretty attractive. What happens is, producers like to use actors who have already worn makeup, knowing they won't complain because they already have experience with it. So I've had at least five jobs outside of Star Trek where I've had to wear makeup and of course, I complain to myself, but not to them.

Q: What kinds of music do you write Max? Anything we know?
Talkingtricorder

Max: I don't write music, I think what Lolita meant was, I take existing music [in "The Ferengi Family Hour"] and write new lyrics.

Chase: He's FABULOUS! It's really good and really funny stuff.

Aron: Very funny lyrics.

Max: For example, we did a song in Oklahoma called "Ferengi in Low Places" which was Garth Brooks' music for "Friends in Low Places."

Q: Max, Chase and Aron — First, I would like to say "Thank You" for helping to create such unique characters that added spice to the DS9 series ... Second, I was wondering what was the hardest thing on camera for each of you to accomplish, whether it be physically or emotionally?
Torrez

Aron: For me it was it was having to cry in "It's Only a Paper Moon." I grew as an actor that day and that was probably the hardest thing I had to do on that show. Second ... was actually being able to pronounce, "I know who can tell us what self-sealing stem bolts are." Nineteen takes, baby!

Chase: The hardest thing can be to do anything after say, twelve takes. No matter what it is, we need to keep it fresh and real, time after time. When there are 50 people on set, and you're in a really private, emotional moment, it's necessary to block them all out, and just live the moment. It can be hard, but incredibly rewarding.

Max: Excellent question, but very difficult to answer in a short period of time. The hardest thing is to come in with your idea for the scene and be flexible enough to incorporate the ideas of the director, the producers and other actors. That's a lot of ideas floating around, and since you only have five minutes of rehearsal before you shoot most scenes, you kind of have to be fast on your feet. I find that very challenging. This is why Armin and I would often rehearse entire episodes away from the studio. And getting the script in advance was of paramount importance, pardon the pun.

Aron: Hey, I rehearsed with you too!

Max: And Aron rehearsed with us to. And Chase rehearsed with us too.

Q: Lolita, you work on The Dead Zone. Can you tell us more about that?
Georgyne

Lolita: Yes, I can. I'm not working on it in a permanent position, but I've been helping in the writing department on and off for the last three months.

Chase: It's amazing. Michael Piller did it again.

Lolita: For those of you who have seen it, you know that it's a very good show — well written and well acted — and I'm very glad to have been part of it.

Q: What was your first convention experience like?
Darktribbel21

Lolita: I don't even remember my first one, because I've done so many of them, but they've always been fun and I don't know what I'd do without them.

Aron: I don't remember my first convention. I don't remember not ever having a good time at a convention though. I tend to have more fun in Europe because I stay there longer and I get to go out and see the city. In the U.S., I'm usually just there for the weekend.

Max: Mine was at a convention in England called Mid-Con in 1993 and it blew me away. I signed autographs with George Takei and he signed so slowly that that's what I thought we were supposed to do. When I went to my first convention in the states, they yelled at me. They said "You have to sign faster!" They said "We haven't had anybody sign as slow as you since we had George Takei here."

Chase: We're still yelling at him ... ! Mine was also at Mid-Con in England. I was a little scared. I adjusted. Seriously, we've had a blast, ever since then. We really have a lot of fun together, especially lately with "The Ferengi Family Hour."

Q: This question's for Aron. Do you have a close friendship with Cirroc Lofton?
Leia

Aron: No, I don't. We had a great time on the show and I got along with him very, very well. It's always great to see him when I do see him. We had a good friendship during the show and I think it helped the chemistry on the show. But because of our age differences, we never hung out together off the show. I was 24, he was 16. But I love it when I see him. He's a good guy.

Max: Now there's a guy who could have taught me about hip hop, he was always singing some rap song on the set.

Q: For Lolita, what was it like working behind the scenes at Star Trek? Do you like watching the shows, or does knowing how it gets made ruin it for you?"
Spoonhead

Lolita: Working behind the scenes on Star Trek was an amazing experience, and it was tough to watch the show because I knew the scripts intimately while they were being shot.

Aron: Intimately! You take those scripts out to dinner?

Lolita: Ha, ha, Aron.

Max: What do you call what you did with me?

Chase: Rom!

Lolita: Oh, and ha ha Max, I'd love to tell.

Chase: Does everyone know that Leeta was named after Lolita? And that she's my soul sister? ;-) Seriously, it's all very incestuous. She's my best friend in real life, and dated my husband on the show. All completely coincidental.

Star Trek Host: Lolita has to run!

Lolita: Bye everyone, I have to go. Thanks!

Chase: Bye, Lo! We love you!

Oh right ... Bye Lolita, good talking with you ...
Gammaq

Bye Lolita! Thanks for coming!!!
Talkingtricorder

Thanks Lolita for coming!
torrez

Bye Lolita!
yangtzeekiang

Q: This is for Aron. What was it like playing a Kazon kid on Voyager? Was it anything like being a Ferengi?
Talceles

Aron: It was great working on Voyager. I had a blast with Robert Beltran ["Chakotay"]. It was a character quite different from Nog — on the other side of the spectrum. Max helped me with the script but he says I didn't do anything he suggested.

Q: How long does it take to "Ferenginize" your face?
Eternal_trekkie86

Max: How long is Martinizing, two hours?

Chase: Mine was three and a half hours for hair, makeup and wardrobe, on Dabo-girl days. With my makeup artist, I was usually the first one on the Paramount lot, at 4:30 a.m. It was very cool.

Aron: An hour and a half. They could have gotten it down to an hour if they had to. My make-up artist was really quick.

Max: In 1990 it started out at three hours, and then it was three hours for the first two seasons of DS9, and then it was two and a half hours somewhere in the middle of the third season, and I think by the last episode of the third season, we got it down to two hours. We could have done it in less time, but it would have been a little rushed. One of our makeup artists, Dean Jones — who I call "Fast Dean" — could get me done in an hour and fifteen minutes. But the downside of that is it would take two hours to get out of it. He kind of just pours glue all over your face and then slaps the rubber on. Notice it takes a lot more time to look beautiful than it does to look ugly.

Chase: Oh, Rom.

Q: Will "The Ferengi Family Hour" ever be available on tape or DVD?
Empoknor

Aron: Not unless we get the rights to the songs.

Chase: It's really best LIVE.

Max: There's nothing like the live show.

Q: Other than Star Trek, what have been your favourite projects?
Spbass

Max: I spent three weeks on "Apollo 13" as part of Mission Control, working with some wonderful actors and a wonderful director and man named Ron Howard. And I spent a week on The Drew Carey Show, and I really enjoyed being there. Drew is a real stand up kind of guy. I hope success doesn't spoil him.

Chase: I'm really excited about "Inhuman," the film I just wrapped. I'm also one of the producers — I think it's really gonna be great. Also, we're revamping the kind of genre-newsmagazine show that I did for Sci-Fi Channel a couple of years ago, but with a different company. Stay tuned. Good stuff ahead.

Aron: I did a play back in 1990 or '91, called "Minor Demons." That was a terrific experience. It was done at the Arizona Theater Company. There's been something great about everything I've done. I've been very fortunate ... but now I need a new job.

Q: Did you guys watch Star Trek outside of just DS9?
Ppatters

Max: I watch Enterprise, I think it's a really good show. But my favorite Star Trek by far — I don't want to make any enemies here — my favorite Star Trek by far is Next Generation. I think those guys could have gone on forever, although I would have been out of a job.

Chase: I did. I actually had a boyfriend who was such a trekker that I could only call him during commercials.

Aron: I watched the Original Series when I was a kid.

Q: Do you ever find yourselves identifying with your character?
Eternal_trekkie86

Aron: Actually, yes. I found a lot of the same qualities that Nog had in me, amplified. It was odd how my life and the story that was written for Nog were very parallel.

Chase: Only when Rom displayed his um, athletic prowess.

Max: I once needed a glass of milk but the little sandwich stand wouldn't give me one. I said, "You have milk right behind you." He said, "That's for coffee." I said, "Can't you pour it in a glass for me." He said, "I don't have a register key to ring it up on." I was getting frustrated ... I said, "Take the carton, pour it into an 8 oz cup, ring it up under tea or juice or coffee, and we'll be square." He said, "It's against the rules." I said "WHERE'S THE PROFIT? We're perfect trading partners. You stand to make financial profit on the deal. I'll profit nutritionally." And he turned around to see if his boss was watching, and said "Okay." And he poured me my milk.

Q: What are you favorite foods?
Who_cares

Aron: Mexican, Italian and seafood.

Max: Tube-grubs. Oh, I forgot, we're not in character anymore.

Chase: Are we supposed to say tube-grubs and raktajino? I love Italian. I love to cook Italian, and to barbeque. And I love dessert.

Max: I'm not a seafood person. What? Oh, my favorite foods are, number one – Italian and number two – Mexican. Why are you asking? Are you inviting me to dinner? I'll take a good burger if you've got one, it's not like I'm a vegetarian or anything.

Q: Chase, Max and Aron, what do each of you do for relaxation?
Torrez

Aron: Movies! I love to watch movies. One that comes to mind is "I am Sam." I work out at the gym. It's also hard to relax when you have two boys. Your relaxation period is from 8 o'clock at night to 10 o'clock.

Chase: I read, voraciously. I love to work out; some martial arts, some yoga, and I dance. I like to garden. I like to cook. I like to talk, late-night. Geez, I sound like a personal ad.

Max: [I like to] go into chat rooms and see what people are saying. Relaxation? Billiards, driving to some nice places here in California, like up the coast by Santa Barbara, that's nice ... Oh, and I do anything I can to stay out of traffic. That's the most un-relaxing thing in the quadrant.

Star Trek Host: It almost time for us to wrap! This will be the last question ...

Q: What plans do any of you have in the future, professionally?
Wildabouttrek

Chase: Thanks for askin'. Like I said, check out "Terminal Invasion" on the Sci-Fi Channel, and look for "Inhuman" next spring. Also, I'll have my CD out later this year, so I can be the J-Lo of sci-fi ;-). Seriously, I'm excited about it. Check out my website, www.chaseclub.com/cd.htm, for details.

Max: I just got a job on a new series called "The New Family Affair." Look for me as the Russian cab driver who threatens Sissy. Remember Buffy and Jody and Sissy? And Mrs. Beasley and Mr. French? The name of the episode is "French Lessons." They asked me "Would you do this for very little money," I said "I don't care how little you pay me, but I can't do it on the Friday before a Star Trek convention." And that's true. I'm just trying to find an agent, doing the usual business of Hollywood. That's very difficult, and I thought it would get easier after playing a pretty major character on a series for seven years, but Hollywood's the kind of place that likes fresh faces. And after seven years of makeup, my face is not fresh.

Aron: My thoughts are too much in the present to think about 10 years in the future. I just hope I'm still working. I believe in honesty — one little plug. Check out the Web site, www.trekfriends.com.

Star Trek Host: Thanks to everyone for joining us today! Please send your good-byes and thanks to Aron, Chase and Max!

Aron: Thank you so much to everyone for coming out and talking with us. I hope to see everyone in Vegas ... or Iceland, if we ever make it there. ;)

Max: Thanks for being fans of Star Trek! If you meet me one day, introduce yourself and tell me you were part of this chat! God bless, whether you believe in God or not.

Thanks Chase ... Max ... and Aron for taking your time to chat with us ST Fans!!!
