"Schisms." 
  
Insomnia. Disturbing memories. Mysterious disappearances. Creepy aliens. The sixth season episode "Schisms" is a frightening hour of television that taps into the fear of being abducted for experimentation by aliens that we're unable to understand. 

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Amy Nelson and Justin Oser are joined by guest Clara Cook of Primitive Culture to discuss both the scary and the surprisingly funny parts of the episode "Schisms." From Riker's insomnia and bedhead to the creepy holodeck scene to alien clicking sounds to Data's hilariously dry poetry, we talk about what intrigues us about the episode and the many questions that it brings up.

Dwight Schultz Interview.
 
Lieutenant Reginald Barclay, played by Dwight Schultz, is well-known for being shy and struggling with addiction to the holodeck, but he also had the technical knowledge and ability to think outside the box that could be used to save the day. Dwight Schultz appeared as the popular and unforgettable Lieutenant Barclay over the course of 11 years in 5 episodes of The Next Generation, the movie First Contact, and 6 episodes of Voyager. 
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Justin Oser, Amy Nelson, and Richard Marquez interview actor Dwight Schultz about his role as Lieutenant Barclay on The Next Generation and Voyager. The discussion includes talking about his longtime Star Trek fandom, sharing fascinating and funny behind-the-scenes stories about working in Star Trek and on The A-Team, and the inspiration that the character of Lieutenant Barclay continues to provide to many Star Trek fans 28 years after his first appearance in "Hollow Pursuits."
