In 2009, Virginia Lee Smith was interviewed about her involvement with Star Trek fandom, Kirk/Spock, and fanzines.

In it, she talks of her collection of 200 fanzines, explains what zines are, of slash, of her drifting away from fandom, of Star Trek fans and their interest in NASA, of some fans who "went professional," of the upcoming "new" Star Trek movies, and of how she had offered up her zines for a charity auction because she was afraid her remaining family would burn them after she passed away.

The interview is just under eleven minutes long.
