It was announced last night that Lou ferrigno would be a special guest star in episode 2 of star trek continues. No details as to the role.

Yeah, I saw this yesterday. I think this is interesting particularly as Ferrigno is not a Trek alumni. It signals going beyond a comfort zone. I can't imagine what role he'll play, but I'm dying to see what they do. I quite liked the first episode and I'm eager to see the second.

IŽll admit - I had to google the guy. Interesting choice - they seem to like to pick retired old actors... At least they should know their business.

I'll guess that he's Balok, all grown up. :shifty:

The Enterprise returns to planet Exo III to find RuK has made a back up robot to tend the machine and has build another Dr. Korby.
I'm just saying... :rofl:

Gorn I'm betting on a gorn but Ruk is a good guess as well.

ST Continues has a short release time for a high-end fan film group. I'm betting we'll know well before First Contact Day 2014

Very short. At this rate I would expect them to have four episodes filmed and at least three released by this time next year. I could even see them doing another Kickstarter next October after having filmed/produced the three episodes the last one funded.

While I'm sure Mr. Ferrigno is a lovely man, I'm personally weary of the guest-star focus in some fan films. Hopefully he's cast to the script and not the other way around.

Did I miss something? As far as I know they just finished shooting - IŽm sure the postproduction takes a couple of months, so weŽll probably see a release in spring 2014. I would be surprised if they are able to churn out more then 1 episode a year, even with all the money they get thrown at.

Cool. I just hope they don't paint him green like the Hulk and turn him into an Orion male.

At least since he's not from TOS they won't have to explain his sudden aging (although all they'd need to say is that when he gets angry he grows old).

Jokes aside he could well be cast against type, a smart thing if it happens. If he's an alien he'd make a HUGE killer Gorn. Never mind rocks, asteroids would probably bounce off him :)
