took time out of his busy schedule starring in Macbeth
to attend a Star Trek
convention where he joined Brent Spiner
in a little light-hearted teasing of the fans.
As reported at TrekMovie.com, the Creation Entertainment convention held in New Jersey last weekend brought out the Star Trek stars. In attendance were: Patrick Stewart, Brent Spiner(Data), Dominick Keating(Reed), Armin Shimerman(Quark), Rene Auberjonois(Odo) J.G. Hertzler(Martok), Max Grodenchik(Rom), Robin Curtis(Saavik), Chase Masterson(Leeta) and Casey Biggs(Damar).
Stewart told fans that Peter Jackson wanted him for Gandalf for Lord of the Rings, but Stewart wanted another role which he did not reveal. 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.
Spiner promoted his Dreamland CD and told a story about a university that wanted to give him the "Robot of the Year" award. (He declined the award.)
Auberjonois and Shimerman teamed up and discussed a scene from Boston Legal which they did together and which was written as an homage to their Deep Space Nine Quark/Odo relationship.
Keating took advantage of the absence of his friend and Enterprise co-worker Connor Trinneer to make fun of him in a lighthearted way. He blamed the demise of Enterprise on Rick Berman.
