Re: Sooooo, Sisko never got to be a captain

Oh come on folks. She's obviously joking! The exchange is preceded and followed by laughter. It's hardly the most serious of interviews to begin with.

Re: Sooooo, Sisko never got to be a captain

Oh no, an actor on my sci-fi tv series doesn't have the obsessive detail of knowledge about it that I do! My childhood!

Not everybody involved in Star Trek can be a superfan, guys.

Hardly obsessive, detailed, superfan material. It's pretty basic shit.

That said, it's pretty clear that she's not being entirely serious.

Re: Sooooo, Sisko never got to be a captain

No, she wasn't joking, at least not about that. I copied the exchange exactly as it was reported, without a bunch of laughter after every response. She seemed to know each captain's story well enough to be able to determine which ones don't count and the two that do (to her).

I don't see anyone getting upset because it's not a big deal; she's just an actress who's entitled to having an inaccurate opinion. There's no need to get upset about people pointing that out, though. What I hope she was joking about was being married 11 times. That's her character, I'm guessing...

Re: Sooooo, Sisko never got to be a captain

Kate Mulgrew is often a troll. She trolls the audience, makes up shit as it comes to her and laughs along with it. She's always ON and always a comedian. At some point she came up with a quirk about how she and Stewart were the only ones to spend 7 years on a ship as captains and she's enjoyed throwing it out there in mock pride, something she uses as the other side of the coin to self deprecation all the time.

If you watch her talks you read this stuff in her voice and the style is quite obvious.

Re: Sooooo, Sisko never got to be a captain

I guess that's the problem with a written interview. I can't hear her voice. That, and it seems like only people very familiar with the actress would be able to tell in this case that she might be joking. It would help if the interviewer said she was joking. Otherwise, one would think it to be a serious interview. It is what it is, though.
