Next interview for the other job is now next week, which is great. I'm burnt out!
I only saw the trailer for the Star Trek movie just the other day. It looks good. I like the Star Trek movies and I loved the series with Picard and for the life of me I can't remember which one that was. Duh. There was Voyager, DS9....oh ya!!!! Next Generation I was never a big fan of the original series. Except now I think William Shatner is hilarious. He knows how to have a laugh at himself.
Laurie and Kim I've never seen Star Trek. Not an episode of the show, not a movie, nada
When i was younger, i used to be able to tell what episode of The Next Generation was on by the first 15 seconds of the show.
We started re-watching them not too long ago and I've gotten very rusty, especially the early seasons.
I am a total Star Trek nerd, start to finish. Grew up obsessed with the original, went to the movies, loved Next Generation, DS9, Voyager, and tolerated Enterprise but was grateful when it ended early.
I'm in the acknowledgments of two of William Shatner's memoirs.
I've been lucky enough to work with or interview a few of them over the years, too.
Movie opens next week, it was supposed to be Friday, they moved it to Thursday, I have tickets for Wednesday.
I think I've seen every Star Trek movie on opening day!
Yeah, I'm a little nuts. When I was a kid there was a long stretch of no Trek and no movies and one had to hide one's nerdy love for it...now I can display my Captain Picard action figure at my desk and people stop by and say, "Cool."
They're nerds too.
I've met William Shatner and James Doohan.
I've interviewed Jonathan Frakes. (So awesomely lovely.)
I've worked with LeVar Burton twice, and the second time, he totally remembered me!
I worked with Jeri Ryan.
And while I've never met Patrick Stewart (and I'm dying to!), I've seen him on stage many many times in a variety of plays. He's so great. I also saw Brent Spiner in a musical, we got autographs afterwards but that's not really "meeting" someone.
