Cobb again talks about his character and the Nietszcheans in a brief interview with Ian Spelling, in which he promised his character would not grow soft next season.
- Gordon Michael Woolvett Interview
Meanwhile, Gordon Michael Woolvett (Seamus Harper) talks about playing the show’s Mr. Fix-it, his impending fatherhood and his character's relationship with Andromeda. "Originally, I was supposed to have this big infatuation with Andromeda. It hasn't gone by the wayside, but we more play the lighter aspect of it. It's not as if my character is truly infatuated with her, it's like he's come to terms with the fact that he's never going to get anywhere with her, but he'll try."
- Finding The Way - An Interview With Brent Stait
Interview number three is with the man who plays perhaps the show’s most elusive character, Brent Stait (Rev Bem), in which the actor talks about the internet, science fiction in general and Star Trek.
- Zack Stentz Interviewed
Online fanzine Scifidimensions talked to staff writer Zack Stentz about many facets of his work, from how he first got involved with the show to his interactions with the cast, in addition to a few tidbits about one of their upcoming episodes, 'Fear and Loathing in the Milky Way', in which "Harper and Trance take a road trip and meet up with their old enemy Gerentex [and] wackiness ensues."
