aww ... that's very sweet. It's wonderful that you had such a good experience. And thanks for sharing the details with us.

I'm pleased to say that thus far each Trek actor I've had the privelage of meeting in person has been great!
Glad to hear that. Sure, they're entitled to their private lives, but as celebrities they choose to be in the public eye. When they agree to participate at a fan event, it's only professional for them to be courteous and caring towards their fans. After all, a dedicated fanbase can only help their career.

Star Trek[/URL] was a chance to escape the problems of this planet and travel to other worlds and met different species. It gave hope that one day we would over come our differences and live together in peace, a world without hunger. Looking at us today it seems all we do is work, to earn enough money to make it though life. We don’t really create anything really remarkable. Gene Roddenberry’s vision was incredible.

He may play one of TV's iconic characters in the upcoming Star Trek movie, but Chris Pine believes he can add something new to the character of Captain James T. Kirk.

"No matter what your job, there are always ways to do something better than your predecessor," he tells the May issue of Men's Health magazine. "That's why you were hired."

Robert Pattinson and Twilight vs. Chris Pine and Star Trek

Quote:
Twilight took Robert Pattinson form 'who?' to superstar in the blink of an eye. Rob Pattinson was very good as a vampire with a heart of gold in the film and now has been named as the number one young hunk in Hollywood. Will he now have to give way to his crown for the summer to Chris Pine of Star Trek. With the release of what looks to be a stellar film, it will be interesting to see where Pine lands on the list of hunky young Hollywood.


Star magazine offers this for Pine, "Revenge Of The Nerd! It’s been a long Trek from geeky student to Hollywood hunk. But Chris Pine is in command now!" With his piercing blue eyes and chiseled jaw, Chris turns heads everywhere, can he compete with Rob?

LeVar Burton in five-car crash in L.A. | Celebrities | Entertainment | Toronto Sun

Quote:
LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles police say actor LeVar Burton was involved in a five-car accident but wasn’t seriously injured.

Detective Judy Acosta says Burton’s 2006 Mercedes was on Beverly Boulevard in West Los Angeles at about 7:40 p.m. Monday when a 74-year-old woman in a 2006 Scion turned left in front of him.

Acosta says the cars collided. Burton’s vehicle then hit a parked car, leading to a chain reaction that damaged two other parked cars.
Good to know that there weren't any serious injuries.

Just saw Rene Auberjonois in Saving Grace (bought the first 2 seasons on DVD). Powerful performance!

Anybody else here watch Saving Grace? I'm a big fan of the Earl/Grace relationship -- Holly & Leon are terrific together .

Karl Urban, Star Trek's Dr. McCoy, to play vampire villain in Priest

Quote:
Karl Urban, Star Trek's Dr. McCoy, has been cast as the villain Black Hat in Priest, a horror thriller based on the TokyoPop manhwa comic series of the same name. Priest, a Screen Gems production also starring Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet and Maggie Q, is slated for release this time next year. The film is now in production in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Urban's turn as "Bones" McCoy in Star Trek this year, while one of many bright spots in the reboot, served mainly to establish his Dr. McCoy-ness. He hit all the right notes, but the sequels will need to give him more to do. Like his predecessor in the role, DeForrest Kelley, Urban has played western-cowboy types (in TV's Lonesome Dove, for example), and perhaps because of Kelley's legacy it may be all too easy for McCoy to be relegated to dispenser of homespun common sense and occasional "He's dead, Jim" intensity. McCoy is a challenge for a writer; some non-canonical novels have given him a love interest, or at any rate a sex interest--with at least two more Star Trek movies coming, he's bound to lock lips with someone. Or even take his shirt off. Will we find out why someone so desirable is a divorcé? Is he hard to get along with, or is he taken in by the wrong type? It's likely that Urban's Dr. McCoy will get to make the most of his alternate timeline, and we'll see sides of the good doctor we haven't seen before.

Star Trek's Kirk should be honourary captain in navy: Facebook group

Quote:
He was captain of the Enterprise, but is James T. Kirk fit to be a captain in the Canadian navy? A recently formed Facebook group is campaigning for William Shatner -- the Canadian actor who played the iconic captain on Star Trek-- to become an honourary captain in the Canadian navy. To be eligible, a candidate must be a former officer or a distinguished Canadian citizen. The Canadian navy says honourary captains are quite visible and attend -- in uniform -- many prominent naval, Canadian Armed Forces and public events and ceremonies. Current members include former prime minister Brian Mulroney's chief-of-staff Hugh Segal and Jim Balsillie, co-CEO of BlackBerry-maker Research in Motion.

TrekToday Blog Archive Bakula On Star Trek Fandom

Quote:
Scott Bakula (Captain Archer) is a science fiction fan who finds it difficult to say “No” to science fiction roles.

“I look back now, it’s like, ‘How did I end up in all these science fiction things?,’” Bakula explained during an interview at the Toronto Film Festival. “And then I look back at the stuff that I loved when I was a kid, and the TV shows that I liked, and the books that I liked and Ray Bradbury, and all the things that I loved reading.”

“And then I say, ‘Well, you know, it’s kind of…’ when I open up a script that says, ‘The guy, he wakes up and he’s in a bed, and nobody knows, he looks in a mirror and he’s somebody else, and they can’t figure it out, and this hologram appears,’ I’m just sucked right in. I’m not going, ‘This is stupid.’ I love it. So, it’s, I’m drawn to it. It’s hard for me to say no to science fiction stuff.”

Bakula has to decline science fiction roles sometimes, as difficult as it is for him. “I just can’t keep doing [science fiction] over and over and over again,” he said.

Part of working on a science fiction show or movie is dealing with science fiction fandom. “Well you know,” said Bakula, “science fiction fans. If they love you, they’ve, you’ve got them…If you’re in, you know, then you’re in forever. And they’re demanding fans. They expect that you be honest in your science fiction, and correct in your science fiction. And they expect you to be available, and a part of the world of science fiction. And they claim you. So, there’s kind of a responsibility about that.”

Going into Star Trek: Enterprise, Bakula was prepared for the demands of its fandom. “I knew when I took Enterprise that I was perpetuating that,” he said. “But they’re loyal, and they ask you to be really good. And they really watch. And, you know, for a performer, that’s, you can’t really ask for more than that. They’re not casual. They’re intent. And you better have, you better not screw up your facts, your logic, they’ll ring you up on that one. And so, you know, that’s who you work for. We work for our fans, and for an audience. And so I love them. They’ve been great to me.”
