Re: A very special petition regarding the STXI sequel!

Online petitions are... cute but almost always unsuccessful. I do have to wonder whether or not this woman actually wants to appear in the film.

If she was a science adviser on the movie, isn't it pretty likely that she was already invited to appear in a walk-on role? In which case maybe she simply declined?

Has anyone asked her?
The idea of having her appear in the next movie does not seem to be one which Ms. Porco had herself expressed, though a short bit in this column at TrekMovie suggests that she's up for it if it happens. (I just can't find where she's actually said that.) Both the idea and the petition seem to have originated with people posting comments at CICLOPS.org in response an item about the Star Trek movie's opening in May.

Re: A very special petition regarding the STXI sequel!

my question is has she been asked what she feels about this petition.

some people might appreciate it.
others might cringe that is being done in their behalf.

No, they sure don't. All they do is end up getting ignored and then deleted.

Apparently, some people need a reminder in how to drum up support for something from the movie industry: Clueless Morons

Please read this, and take it to heart.

Carolyn is photogenic; she was always striking looking. I saw her in passing pretty often during a period in the 1980's when I had a student job at the U. of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Lab.
