Mulgrew lends voice to geo-centrism?
 
This is news I cannot understand:

Star Trek’ actress lends her gravitas to film promoting idea that sun revolves around Earth

Serious WTF?!

Oh Kate. Oh no. Oh please. Ugh. I'm hoping she was duped. Tricked somehow. It would be better than this being a legitimate belief she has.

The film, which is set to be released sometime this spring, was bankrolled in part by the ultra-conservative and anti-Semitic Robert Sungenis. . .

Fox's Howard Kurtz has called rawstory.com a "liberal blog". As for what Kate's doing mixed up with this, who knows? She seemed to like those VOY episodes that explored faith vs. science.

I'm wanting to think the project and its background were misrepresented to her.

I'm really thinking she, and any legitimate scientist interviewed, where all duped. They where asked for one thing, and then the people behind this turned around and used their involvement to further their own nonsense beliefs, while not letting those involved - scientist or actor - what was being done.

I don't see Michio Kaku being one of these kool-aid drinkers, for starters.

And I can easily see Kate recording a narration thinking she's doing a legitimate scientific documentary, totally unaware that the producers of such are nutters. After all, it's easy enough to write a generic enough looking script and then edit the recordings for your own purposes.

Times like this I wish Kate had Twitter, we'd likely know the truth tomorrow, lol.

She does have Twitter and other social media:

Nothing said - yet - about the documentary though. I also don't believe Mulgrew and the scientists (heh - good band name) were fully aware of what this project was going to morph into.

Must be a joke

She's an actor with a script being paid money.

What we call a ridiculous lie posing as science, she calls a new car.

I considered making such a statement earlier, but worried it might be interpreted as heresy. Maybe she just needed the money.

Even if they lied to Kate, and she figured out that someone had been fibbing, and Mulgrew wanted to get out of the "documentary" ...Legally binding contracts had been signed that could have ruined the woman if she tried to pull out.

Do the movie, or lose her beach house, AND get a reputation for being difficult.

"She" doesn't have a twitter account. The twitter account is run by the webmistress for the totallykate.com website.

Have you considered she just took this on as a paying voiceover job?

She is an actress, after all, and selling her voice is part of her bread and butter. DO we really think each actor voicing a car commercial drives that brand?

^^Oops - you're right. Totally Kate is probably seeing an uptick in traffic tonight.

I think Patrick Stewart was already driving a Jaguar when he did those Pontiac commercials.

Don't pretend this isn't a totally different situation. One doesn't really have strong "beliefs" about cars, this is clearly a belief-driven documentary and being willing to voice it sends out a message. It'd be naive to think otherwise.

From a purely atheistic point of view, this movie is equally as ridiculous as any other faith based movie like "Two of a Kind" or "Clash of the Titans".

How much do you think her fee was? How much do narrators get payed anyway? Does anyone know how much top-tier celebrity narrators like Morgan Freeman or Ian McKellen charge? Kate isn't exactly in the same league, so I doubt she'll be buying Ferraris with this money...
