The first sortie by the House of L'Stok into fan productions is finally ready for release! Fan favourite, Karl Puder and newcomer, Merodi play unique parts in this original Klingon tale of love and loss, "Motherhood". Started as part of last year's Twelve Trek Days of Christmas, this short (12:26 11.6Mb), full-cast audio book has gathered a life of its own as the actors have delivered some great performances!

Karl Puder brings to the part a wealth of experience in audio drama as General, and later Emperor Korg in Darker Projects' Star Trek: The Section 31 Files and their latest series, Star Trek: Lost Frontier. However he is probably best known for his continuing film role as General Korg in Areakt Film's Star Trek: Hidden Frontier, a role that he has recently reprised in both of their spin-off's, Star Trek: The Helena Chronicles and Star Trek: Odyssey. I was immensely lucky to be able to get Karl to read for this role and he was incredibly patient with me as we worked to create a significantly different delivery from his alter ego, Korg.
Merodi is a new talent who read for parts in last year's Dispatches From The Romulan War, and signed on as our sound engineer. A young intern at a radio station at the time, I was mightily impressed with her work and when I went looking for a female Klingon, she was one of my first candidates. She did a fantastic job delivering an expressive and emotion-filled delivery in a totally unnatural register for her. Her talents as a voice actor are matched by her skills as a sound engineer, and I expect great things from Merodi Media!
The first book of a trilogy, "Tales of Death and Honour", Motherhood is enhanced by a moody gothic theme, "La Hoguerra" by Distemia, and incidental music by Kevin MacLeod of Incompetech.com. Paul "Enigma" Simpson, who I have worked with on Sci Fi Studios, caught that mood perfectly with his title graphic.
|The Father||Karl Puder|
|Incidental Music||Kevin MacLeod|
Motherhood is narrated by the author, producer and director, Kirok of L'Stok, and marks my debut as a voice talent - using the term in it's loosest possible sense! I hope you find it entertaining and thought-provoking as you ponder the Klingon conundrum: If family honour were more important than life itself, what would you do if you had to choose between family ... or honour?

Wow! What can I say except ... the cheque's in the mail! ;)
Seriously, I appreciate the feedback as much as the complements. Whilst it's a real buzz to know that we got something right for you, it can be just as important to know what we missed the mark with.
My regards to Mr. Thomas

Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier, Killraven - thanks for the encouragement. See you at next year's Script Frenzy? But this time I'll be in the winner's circle too!
