Which statement by a Trek actor/creator annoyed you the most?

Have you read been reading an interview with someone involved with Trek, or been watching a "making of" documentary about the show, when one of the people said something that drove you nuts? Something that was utterly inaccurate, or something so asinine that you couldn't believe they actually said it?

It could be anything from reiterating old, disproven urban legends about the show ("The network didn't want a female first officer"), to hideously misremembering plots ("Edith Keeler was in love with Adolph Hitler!"), mean things about costars ("Shatner made them cut this line/scene/subplot/slept with my wife/killed my dog"), or even shattering some of the illusions you originally had ("I was never really a fan of Star Trek, it was mostly just a paycheck").

What quotes make you cringe when you see them?

^Great topic! For me, it's anything said by Marina Sirtis about DS9, which she has referred to as "Deep Sleep 9" time and time again.

Any time Gene Roddenberry took credit for someone else's ideas.

Any time Harlan Ellison opened his mouth about the heavily rewritten script he did the early draft of.

STFU.

The self-appointed protectors of "Roddenberry's Vision" have annoyed me far more than anyone involved in the various productions ever could.

That's interesting, because I've found TNG to be sleep-inducing...lol

Has she ever recanted that statement, just out of curiosity...

lol....Roddenberry's vision was to make a successful show and make that $$$$. And, maybe get some hot upcoming actress....but, that's a topic for another thread.

No, she usually speaks her mind no matter what anyone thinks. She's a great convention guest that way.

My wife and I saw her and Michael Dorn in San Francisco a year ago, and they went on for a while about "Deep Sleep Nine" and how grim the set was compared to TNG.

Yeah, I understand that Sirtis is definitely different then her reserved Deanna Troi character...lol. Come to think of it, I think the Troi in FC was more 'Sirtis' than what we knew of the character in the television series....

Yes, she is loud, obnoxious, hilarious, and a great convention guest. She's always good for a few quotes. She and I once had a conversation about how her "big mouth" (her words) gets her in trouble.

Heh. I've never heard that one before, so I get to be annoyed by it for the first time!

For me, the Joan Collins "Edith Keeler was in love with Hitler" thing drives me nuts. She even repeated it on a Trek anniversary TV special (It think it was for the 30th Anniversary). You'd think that someone there could've disabused her of that notion...

And yes, outspoken people like that are the best interviews. I recently got to interview the comic book writer/artist Keith Giffen for BACK ISSUE magazine, and he's the same way.
