FACT: Colm Meaney wrote the first draft of City on the Edge of Forever at the age of twelve, but gave it to Harlan Ellison because he thought he needed the break.
Ellison, however, changed Meany's script in one small detail. Meany wanted Kirk to save Edith, but Ellison changed it so that the captain froze in indecision. It created a rift between the two, and they have not spoken to this day. Proof? Have you ever seen Ellison and Meany in the same photograph?!

Sir Rhosis
Compelling evidence, I agree.

(Little-known) FACT: Colm Meaney is the love child of John F Kennedy and Mother Theresa

FACT: Colm Meaney still holds the record for the highest-grossing album of spoken-word versions of Broadway show tunes ever released.

FACT: Colm Meaney can turn wine into water, using only his own kidneys.

FACT: Originally, the film Star Trek: Nemesis was intended to feature Picard and co fighting against a Romulan clone of Chief O'Brien...until Colm Meaney accurately pointed out that in this scenario there was no way the Enterprise crew could possibly win without it looking like a cop-out.

FACT: Plus the O'Brien wig he had to wear, hand-crafted from solid brass wire, made actor Tom Hardy come out in an unsightly scalp-rash.

Re: Facts About Colm Meaney!

Kevin Pereira conducts the interview and apparently he happened upon this little innocuous thread on TBBS and got a serious kick out of it, enough to recite some of Colm Meaney's alleged super powers that are revealed here.

Re: Facts About Colm Meaney!

FACT: Colm Meaney wears glasses on occasions when he needs to contain his optic blast ability.

FACT: Anything that contains a residue of Colm Meaney's DNA is in high demand. Fans have resorted to searching through Meaney's bins because it's said that his DNA can provide a small fraction of his powers to the consumer.
