If you had a chance to speak to a stealthy, Section 31 agent, what questions would you ask? What would you say if he informed you that he'd also worked undercover in all Star Trek series beginning with The Next Generation? Would you be surprised if he also told you he was an author of middle grade and young adult novels?

In this episode of Warp Five, host Floyd Dorsey is joined by Melodic Treks host, Brandon-Shea Mutala, to have a chat with Eric Pierpoint. Find out what it was like to try to be a secret agent wearing squeaky pants, how he was able to give birth on national television, starring in Alien Nation, and how close he was to commanding Deep Space Nine and the U.S.S. Voyager.
