Re: TOS Voice-Over Actor?

^^ Excuse my misreading both your intentions. Going by the “winky” emoticon, I’m pretty sure Gary7 didn’t take the quote seriously either. I still think there ought to be a smiley for irony.

As I recall, the Picard character did lay some French stuff on us very early in TNG, referring to a fellow ship captain as "mon ami" and also waxing nostalgic about the order of the colors blue, white, and red in their appearance on the French flag.
I don't remember him ever saying "mon ami", but I'll take your word for it.

IIRC it was Riker passing on the "mon ami" greeting to Picard from another ship's captain. Don't remember the ep, though.

I did find this (don't know how accurate it is, because it had horrible spelling mistakes that I corrected):
Wikiality wrote:
Captain Picard claims to be French, but is actually English due to the Globalization of Earth. In the twenty-fourth century there are only two countries, USA (consisting of North America, the European mainland, Upper, Middle, and Lower East, Asia, South America, and Antartica)* and its dependent protectorate of Great Britain (consisting of Great Britain.)
That seems more plausible to me... although I'm sure anybody on TBBS who is French born-and-raised would be insulted at the idea that anyone French would allow their language and accent to fall by the wayside.
I don't know what Wikiality is, but that excerpt is entirely made up. Very little has been established about the geopolitical divisions of 24th-century Earth, although we do know there is a country called the European Alliance (mentioned in "The Price") and one called North Am which incorporates the former United States (because Thomas Raymond's address in "The Neutral Zone" is "Indianapolis, North Am, Earth").
Wouldn't "North Am" simply be short for "North America"? I don't think the person responsible for that graphic meant to imply that there's a country called "North Am". By the mid 22nd c., nations are all just provinces anyway, as I understand it.

We've both almost got it. Here is the exchange between Riker and Picard from Encounter at Farpoint:

PICARD: Did you signal the Hood, Commander Riker?
RIKER: Your exact message. "Bon voyage, mon ami."
PICARD: What was my answer, computer?

Sure, it could've been an abbreviation, but who knows? Language changes in funny ways sometimes, and it often involves abbreviation.

I think my favorite Doohan voice work was in A PIECE OF THE ACTION where he does the commercial ending with, "Brought to you by Bang-Bang, makers of the sweetest little automatic in the world."

"Encounter at Farpoint"? After DeSoto collected Admiral McCoy?

Picard refers to an illusion of his mother as "Maman" (ie. Mom) in "Where No One Has Gone Before".

In "The Defector," Picard refers to George Custer as a "countryman" of Riker's. So the USA does still exist as a country, Alaska is still apart of it, and Will Riker is the same nationality as Custer ... American.

Fair enough. IIRC, I've read one or two sf stories over the years in which the entire continent is united under one government and it's called "Noram".

Or the "country" in question could be North Am(erica), which includes but is not limited to the former United States. After all, Alaska wasn't a part of the US until just 62 years ago. Countries can grow or combine with other countries.

Now, in "Lower Decks" we did have Riker correcting Sam Lavelle when the latter thought Riker was Canadian. But that could just be like what happened to me at Shore Leave recently when someone thought I was from New York and I told them no, I'm from Cincinnati. Just pointing out the difference doesn't mean they aren't part of the same geopolitical entity.

Merde.

Yes; early in Season 1. I was surpised to hear that word on a family-friendly show, just like years later when I heard O'Brien say "bollocks" on DS9.

Do Brits receive broadcasts of Married with Children? If so, what do they think of Peg's maiden name and home county, Wanker?

I can't seem to find the correct screen capture of that graphic, could someone please provide?

Perhaps North Am could be something like the "Northern Armenian Matriarchy." Not to be confused with the SPAM, the "Southern Peoples Armenia Matriarchy."

It's the country that contains Indianapolis in the 24th century, so I doubt it.

Re: TOS Voice-Over Actor?

Getting back to the original subject, this sparked an email discussion with Bjo and others.

Suffice it to say that several blanks and erroneous listings have been corrected. Not just Mr. Edmiston, but several others that haven't been credited before.
