Trek Stars at Creation Entertainment Convention
 
<font color=yellow>Patrick Stewart</font> took time out of his busy schedule starring in <i>Macbeth</i> to attend a <i>Star Trek</i> convention where he joined <font color=yellow>Brent Spiner</font> in a little light-hearted teasing of the fans. <p>As reported at <A class="link" HREF="http://trekmovie.com">TrekMovie.com</A>, the Creation Entertainment convention held in New Jersey last weekend brought out the <i>Star Trek</i> stars. In attendance were: <font color=yellow>Patrick Stewart</font>, <font color=yellow>Brent Spiner</font>(Data), <font color=yellow>Dominick Keating</font>(Reed), <font color=yellow>Armin Shimerman</font>(Quark), <font color=yellow>Rene Auberjonois</font>(Odo) <font color=yellow>J.G.

Stewart also engaged in a bit of fun with Spiner posed as a fan to ask silly questions and poke gentle fun at the fans. <p>Spiner promoted his <i>Dreamland</i> CD and told a story about a university that wanted to give him the "Robot of the Year" award. (He declined the award.)<p>Auberjonois and Shimerman teamed up and discussed a scene from <i>Boston Legal</i> which they did together and which was written as an homage to their <i>Deep Space Nine</i> Quark/Odo relationship. <IMG SRC="http://www.trektoday.com/images/news/Rene-Armin031108.gif" WIDTH="200" HEIGHT="150" ALIGN="RIGHT" BORDER="0"> <p>Keating took advantage of the absence of his friend and <i>Enterprise</i> co-worker <font color=yellow>Connor Trinneer</font> to make fun of him in a lighthearted way. He blamed the demise of <i>Enterprise</i> on <font color=yellow>Rick Berman</font>.<p>To read more and see the video of Stewart and Spiner joking around, head to the link located <A class="link" HREF="http://trekmovie.com/2008/03/09/new-york-con-reports-pictures-and-video/">here</A>.

I wish I could have been there. To see Chase Masterson :drool::drool::drool::drool::drool:in person would have been worth the price of admission all by itself.

Spiner turns down a "Robot of the Year" award from a university!?! Jerkoff.:wtf:

And Dominick Keating is exactly right about the demise of Enterprise. But I think Braga deserves some of the blame too. B&B blame Paramount and/or the now defunct UPN but that's just so much bullshit. :klingon:

I loved the "Quark and Odo Show" on Boston Legal.
David Kelley is a fuck*ng genius! :bolian:

I know most fans want to blame Berman and Braga for everything ( and they do deserve some blame), but UPN has to have it's share too.
As I recall, it was UPN who wanted to sex up Voyager and wanted some more "futuristic" stuff on Enterprise, hence the Temporal Cold War.
