SciFi Diner Classic Ep. 1
Our Interview With John Broughton from Starship Farragut
This is our very first episode of what we are calling the SciFi Diner Classic. Since we do a news and interview show, it goes without saying that the news portion of our episodes often date themselves fast. And while the interviews with the people that make Science Fiction happen remain relevant and in our opinion important, most listeners will not listen back 100 episodes and wade through old news just to get to the interview. So what the SciFi Diner Classic aims to do is to share these interviews with you. If you have been with us from the beginning, then bear with us as we introduce some of our newer listeners to voices from the past. Let me know what you think of this idea. Like it? Hate it? Let me know. We’re bringing you just the interview and nothing else.
John Broughton functions as the producer and captain of the Starship Farragut is an independent film series based on the original series of Star Trek.

Carter, and takes place during the time of legendary Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise (NCC-1701). The U.S.S. Farragut was named for the American naval officer David Glasgow Farragut, first Admiral of the Navy, who commanded Union ships during the American Civil War.
