'Star Trek: Phase II' Actor To Appear In 'Star Trek XI'
 
<font color=yellow>Jeff Quinn</font>, who portrayed the first Spock in the fan-produced <i>Star Trek: New Voyages</i> (now <i>Phase II</i>), joins <i>Phase II's</i> <font color=yellow>James Cawley</font> in obtaining a small non-speaking part in <i>Star Trek XI</i>.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF="http://trekmovie.com">TrekMovie.com</A>, Quinn showed up last year for the casting call for <i>Star Trek XI</i>. A request had gone out for people with "unique features" who were willing to shave their eyebrows. According to Quinn, who fit the description which appeared to be for potential Vulcans or Romulans, "Clearly I was OK with that."<p>Quinn played Spock in the <i>New Voyages</i> episodes: <i>Come What May</i>, <i>In Harm's Way</i>, <i>To Serve All My Days</i> and the Hugo-nominated <i>World Enough and Time</i>. <font color=yellow>Ben Tolpin</font> took over the role of Spock for subsequent episodes.<p>Although Quinn's role is a non-speaking part, he did say that he was "front and center" in a couple of shots. He kept mum on his role, but partially shaved eyebrows might be taken as an indication of a role as a Vulcan.<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://trekmovie.com/2008/03/30/jeff-quinn-to-appear-in-star-trek-movie/">here</A>.<center></center>

:o

When I saw the headline, I thought the story was about Xon (David Gautreaux). I forgot that New Voyages changed their name for some reason.

Quinn's face looks like a skull with skin stretched over it. Very Vulcany. :vulcan:

Could it be because Quinn never appeared in Phase II? The headline is wrong. He was a New Voyages actor, not a Phase II actor.

I suspect the headline was typed in a hurry, and logic had nothing to do with it. Fascinating.

New Voyages is now Phase II. I usually go with the "new" name now.
