This Week We Talk
Take some time to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. Join us this week for a fresh new look at Nobility, the anticipated upcoming space opera series which gets its first official reveal at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. We’ve been excited for it ever since we first talked to creator E.J. De La Pena last fall, and we’re happy to welcome him back on the show as we try to weasel some new tidbits from him and many others from the cast, including Adrienne Wilkinson (Xena Warrior Princess, the Star Wars Force Unleashed videogame series, Star Trek Renegades), Cas Anvar (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the Assassin’s Creed videogame series), Doug Jones (Hellboy, The Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer, Pan’s Labyrinth), Miracle Laurie (Dollhouse, The Scenic Route), and… drumroll, please!… none other than the esteemed Mr. Walter Koenig (Star Trek’s Ensign Chekov and Babylon 5’s Bester)!!

Get on Board
In the 700 years it took for mankind to spread across this arm of the galaxy, Earth became the capital world for all humanity– well, as much as any world could claim to be the capital. As new cultures formed, new alliances emerged, new races developed, and new hostilities were born. This meant the central government – the Confederate Alliance – was left in a situation we all know, one in which regional and national governments fought for sovereignty and undermined the central government’s legitimacy by any means necessary.
Some cultures even retreated from humanity entirely only to be rediscovered down the line. Such is the case with the Eujin people, a culture based on principles of genetic purity and directed evolution through selective breeding. They view it as their divine mission to convert humanity to their ways and move the species toward a higher stage of evolution. When the Eujin people are rediscovered, they join the nearly defunct Confederate Alliance with the hope of serving this cause.
Some decades later, desperate to show it has something to offer, the Confederate Alliance decides to showcase the most powerful ship in all of Earthdom, the C.A.S. Nobility, capable of dispatching any enemy or answering any distress call. Ordering the ship to be the subject of a documentary, the higher-ups have no idea that the crew of the Nobility is, well, less than noble.
Not wanting to miss an opportunity, the Eujin people lobby for one of their own to be stationed on the ship to show all of humanity the worthiness of the Eujin cause. This honor falls upon Sirius Halud, a true believer. He’s assigned as weapons and Eujin liaison officer and expects to find the best humanity has to offer on board the Nobility.
Sirius is mortified when he meets the crew. Instead of the pinnacle of humanity he finds the apathetic Captain Cern sleeping with numerous crew members, the closeted navigator, Bob Takashima, desperate to prove he’s straight, the disgruntled alcoholic engineer, Mooney, who has a penchant for throwing wrenches at crewmen, and the condescending hard ass that is First Officer Pikeman who’d deck the Captain if he made a move on her. When he has to choose between the disorderly bunch that are the crew he’s supposed to defend and his own people, Sirius’ loyalties become a subject of debate.
