Re: PStewart confirms there was a Star Trek 'Avengers' script post Nem
Spiner's concerns were that Data (the specific character) is ageless, but he himself isn't.
Yes, I believe Lance said exactly the same thing in his post.
But he would be quick to tell you to fuck off if you called him too old and ugly and bloated and whatever the hell people regularly call old actors.
It seems to me that Spiner regularly talks to people that way, so it wouldn't surprise me at all to hear him berating anyone who makes a crack about his weight. In any case, my earlier comments were about Frakes rather than Spiner. Either could easily reprise his role in an animated Star Trek
feature, and any such production would allow for the incorporation of new characters who hadn't been in previous series.
