Re: So, I met my first slew of Trek stars

I've met her several times. My favorite story (which people are probably sick of) was sitting with her at the Friday night cocktail party.

She went off on Stuart Baird. A five minute rant on how inept he was, how he didn't even like Star Trek, etc. She talked about how he walked out on her first scene because she was arguing with him.

Last year when I saw her I reminded her of our conversation and told her how much I appreciated her honesty. She said "My mouth gets me into a lot of trouble."

That is awesome! I have never been to a con, but when I do I hope it is as exciting as your experience!

Her comments about Deep Space 9 have rubbed people the wrong way, too. Sirtis is a great actress, but her professionalism leaves much to be desired at times.

Levar brought the house down with something he said to Shatner. I'm having trouble remembering the context, but I think Shatner had brought up working with James Doohan and, again, Shatner being Shatner, he wouldn't let Levar finish what he was saying, so Levar just screamed out, "HE'S DEAD, JIM!"
I could definitely picture that.

Well, Shatner also mentioned that he's in the process of editing a recent documentary he made where he talks about the first two years of TNG and interviews each of the cast members.
His interviews with all of the other captains last year was terrific, so I wouldn't be surprised if the TNG documentary turns out well.


I read up that the Star Trek Creations group had Stewart originally scheduled but had to bail, so Shatner came in his place. While Stewart would've been great, I'll bet Shatner spiced it up even more. Apparently the same combo will be appearing in Vegas this August. I just wish I'd known about the Boston one--could have actually driven to it.

Frakes was supposed to be there also, but he had a last minute cancellation. Brent mentioned to me he had a directing gig in Florida.

By the way, what has she said about Deep Space Nine?

If anyone's interested, I did take a few videos from the various panels and I'm uploading them to YouTube as we speak. I'll share them here if you guys want to see.

Hey Amasov,

I was there too! My family and I had a great time as well. We had similar talks as you with the cast members, and actually had a really nice conversation with Michael Dorn. I mentioned about his becoming Vegan and we chatted for quite a while about it. He was very nice. Got to also speak with Denise Crosby who was also a sweetheart. And we got THE BEST pic with LeVar and Brent.

Here are Levar and Marina discussing Into Darkness.

For those who haven't seen it yet, beware of spoilers.
