An actor, author, and martial arts expert, John Carrigan began his acting career when he was personally encouraged by Gene Roddenberry to seek out new goals, forge new opportunities, and—if he really wanted to—sit in the captain’s chair. According to Gene, it was all there for the taking.

In this episode of Continuing Mission, host Tony Robinson talks to Carrigan about his amazing tales of defending a young lady from potential harm, bringing the Klingon Captain Kargh to life in the Star Trek: New Voyages episode "To Serve All My Days," and carrying out the orders of the Empire.
