>>SNORT!!!<<

If I were a celebrity, visiting Fan sites wouldn't really interest me. Any and every celebrity has fans. I'd be more interested in peer-recognition and getting other work. So, nopes! I'm just an obscure STAR TREK fan, sir ... particularly of The Next Generation, that's true, but Just a Fan, never-the-less ...

^ I highly doubt that any Trek actor would...snort.

The joys of anonymity, this board could be full of Trek actors (main and recurring) and we’d never know.

Maybe they’re watching us right now...

Despite what he claims I don't recall him ever posting a picture of Brent Spiner and one of his lady friends. Very suspicious!

Re: Any Trek actors on this board?

I co-admin a Doctor Who forum dedicated to Tom Baker (the Fourth Doctor). The forum owner created a ready-made account for his convenience just in case he ever wanted to say hello. He hasn't yet, but one can hope.

If he ever did, I suspect every member of that forum would promptly swoon in front of our keyboards, as we unreservedly respect and adore him...

Re: Any Trek actors on this board?

Fan Sites are really all about the fans, when you think about it. They are fancentric, catering to ideas, hopes and fantasies they have ... not those that the actual celebrities have. I'm not given to fantasies about chatting with celebrities, myself. What am I going to say to Brent Spiner? How great it is living in a Mansion? About the limo ride to some Premier? Being poolside with the Kardashians? On the other hand, I really enjoy talking and associating with Creative People, in general. In fact, I couldn't get seriously involved with someone who wasn't an Artist, herself.

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'.
And this - especially THIS

Re: Any Trek actors on this board?

I know a few Trek actors have appeared at the Star Trek communities over at Reddit, as well as other non-Trek related subreddits. Hell, Wil Wheaton has replied to one of my comments there, before.

They're probably less likely to browse a Star Trek specific forum, but I can't pretend to be very knowledgeable about this.

There's worse than being a ST actor in this forum: being producer. Unless you're the ghost of Gene Coon, you would not find the comments about you really pleasant.

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.
Any celebrity just needs to contact a mod. Once the mods verify their identity they get a green tag with their name on it.

I thought that was standard procedure?

Re: Any Trek actors on this board?

I just learned today that we have a TNG screenplay writer on the board but unfortuntely couldn't say which, because he would have said so himself already, if he had wanted to reveal himself (I think he didn't like that I wondered how an unfortunate meeting between the Klingons and the Federation could have given birth to the Prime Directive).

P.S.
Please send me a PM if you felt offended and could clarify
