Star Trek's LeVar Burton & Walter Koenig On "Shatner's Raw Nerve" Tomorrow Night

Star Trek's LeVar Burton & Walter Koenig On Shatner's "Raw Nerve" Tomorrow Night

Thanks to Miles from the Scifi Diner Podcast for giving us the heads-up on this. Tomorrow night (March 14th) Bio Channel's "Shatner's Raw Nerve" is serving up a Star Trek double header, starting off with TNG's LeVar Burton at 10pm / 9pm Central. In the preview clip for the episode, LeVar describes his time on the set of "Roots" and discusses his most difficult scene while filming the mini-series.

"For me 'Roots' is all about... family. It's about who we are, why we are the way we are" Says LeVar. "When I read those first sides for Kunta, I know exactly who this kid was. I had no problem putting myself in all of those situations." LeVar then goes into detail about his most difficult moment on the series.

Then if that wasn't enough, Star Trek's Walter Koenig joins The Shat to discuss, among other things, his time after Star Trek's cancelation.

"It was very depressing, extremely depressing. I was losing my sense of identity. Ya know, I was becoming this amorphous being in my own mind. You define yourself in terms of what you do... you have to work at something." Walter continues; "What I tried was writing.  It was enormously reinforcing, everyday I accomplished something.   If I wrote half a page, I accomplished something."

You can catch Walter's episode immediately after LeVar's at 10:30pm / 9:30pm Central.
