Re: Any Trek actors on this board?

While I am not a Trek actor, I work with Jeff Allin, who had a few minor speaking roles in TNG and was also in the Star Trek: Borg video game, at the audiobook recording studio where we work.

If Shatner ever showed up on here, all the questions would be about his hair.

I do not go nowhere nor do nothing. At least not all the time...

Re: Any Trek actors on this board?

If a Trek actor showed up here, half the board wouldn't believe it was really them. I mean, how could they possibly prove who they were? Even if they uploaded a YT video of them loudly proclaiming they were about to log into TrekBBS and then proceeded to do so on camera, there'd still be those who didn't believe them. We've had that problem before, actually, and not just with Chase Masterson.

Re: Any Trek actors on this board?

If I were an actor then I would go anonymously go to various on-line boards / discussion groups and plug my stuff. Self-promotion can be very helpful. If people didn't like my work, then I just would try to not read it.

Didn't Marina Sirtis go to TNG conventions in the early days of TNG because she knew that TPTB were thinking of getting rid of Deanna Troi? She really saved her job by communicating with the fans!

Alan Hale, Jr., was one of my favorite TV actors! He seems like he was a really nice guy.

I'm skeptical, this kind of undercover promotion is rarely subtle on a forum. If the user don't use a too promotional tone, he will be betrayed by his redundant interventions and be fastly tagged as a fan-club president or a manager. I saw that on some occasions with music board.

One of the earliest shows I remember seeing Alan in was when he starred in the series Casey Jones, about the legendary train engineer.

Re: Any Trek actors on this board?

Unfortunately, fan based fora are not the most friendly toward the people who provide the stuff from which fandom is made.

Fans will say things on a forum about people they supposedly admire that they would never have the balls to say to that person face-to-face.

I've seen it happen elsewhere, in non-genre fora, where a "celebrity" comes on only to be greeted by less than knowledgable and dumbass opinion that after a while drives away said celebrity.

These folks are people first, and celebrities second. They expect the same respect that we "regular" people do, and they deserve it, as do we all.

As much as I've seen people here take offense at the slightest offhand comment, I would think that those same people would be careful not to offend others by their own comments. But it doesn't really work that way in this online age of "disparage first, think later."

Think before you speak. Be respectful. Then maybe the actors whose work we admire will feel free to interact on a forum such as this.

I don't really expect that to happen, but hey. Just sayin'.
