Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)
It's interesting to read the mostly positive comments about Dwayne Johnson. When he appeared on the VOY episode most trek fans on this site were outraged, saying a wrestler had no business being in a trek episode and it was nothing but UPN promoting their wrestling show.
I was one of the few people who supported him, pointing out that he already had acting experience since he was a WWE wrestler. Also he was playing a wrestler type athelte on the show and not some scientist. He was good in it and it was a decent and entertaining episode but got bashed by VOY fans.
Eh, I liked it. Johnson was pretty much playing the Rock role, but he was good, Hertzler and the Hirogen Fighter/Seven interaction were very good, and Combs was appropriately slimy in his role. What's not to like?
