Yes, but her point was that she'll be traveling very nearly the same distance as to England.

Maybe so, but they are both completely independent countries, I guess it would be like comparing Cuba and America, yes they might be close, but still, they're totally different. But bar going to the States for a Con, Dublin is not as far and a lot cheaper.

And if someone from England were to say, "I won't be going to New Jersey, but I will be going to Cuba," I wouldn't consider that an inappropriate response. The issue being discussed is distance, not whether or not the two destinations mentioned are part of the same state.

Yes, Compared with New York, Dublin is far closer to where I am in England, but still, they are two different nations and separated by a few miles.

I don't think anyone was implying otherwise.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

You guys are making a mountain out of a molehill. Terri really didn't imply that Ireland was a part of the UK, or that Dublin was in England, or anything of the sort. Just that while stopping off in one, it'd be rather simple to visit the other. Nothing to start acting the maggot over.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

she was talking about KRAD being allowed into the UK, she previously mentioned visting Dublin. maybe it's just me, but it seemed like she was implying Dublin's in the UK.

it'd be like saying, i'm visting Toronto, but I had trouble with US immigration in the past.

It's NOT that easy to get too.

Thats the impression I got as well. Which is why I used the Cuba/America comparison - Originally I was going to use Florida, but that's a state and not a country.

Can we limit discussion in the casting thread to casting suggestions, please? The thread is huge enough without off-topic digressions.

Speaking as someone who's lived in both Ireland and the UK, and has often visited both as a US citizen and resident, it's far from difficult. If one is traveling from the US to the UK, adding a stop in Dublin is no great problem, as long as one has the extra time involved. Going the other way, it would be about as difficult simpler than visiting Washington, DC and adding a stop in New York or Cincinatti. Not directly on the way, but when talking transatlantic distances, it's certainly in the neighborhood.

Right now, yes.

However, I fully intend to do a proper launch for my original series in Dublin in the next year or so. So at some point by the end of 2010, I fully intend to at least make it back to Ireland. That's the plan, anyway.
Woohoo! I could be there for that since I missed your last visit to Dublin and ended up buying a pre-signed book by KRAD a few weeks after your visit.

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Can I just say as an Irish person, living in the North, therefore technically a UK citizen (but with Irish nationality), that I thought Terri's comment made perfect sense. I mean, I get mad when people confuse Irish and British (frequently seems to happen in threads about casting James Bond, for some reason ...) but if someone has travelled across the Atlantic, to me it's a no-brainer to try to squeeze in a visit to the closest landmass and a logical thing to mention Ireland when talking about travelling from the USA to the UK.

And God knows, we could do with some sort of sci-fi convention or book event on this side of the Irish Sea. So I hope your plans come to fruition Terri.

Maybe this has something to do with Pierce Brosnan's being Irish?

Anyway, to sum up, the Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom are not the same, we all know they're not the same, and no one's saying they're the same. Now, let's get back to Trekish casting.

Who should play Arafel Pagro from A Time for War, A Time for Peace?

Re: Cast the Characters of Trek Literature

Are persons from the Isle of Man, the Isle of Wight, the Hebrides, the Orkney Islands, the Shetland Islands, the Scilly Isles, or the Channel Islands considered British? The archipelago is known as the British Isles, but, for some reason, the term British seem to only apply to persons from the largest island in the group. Is this merely the strangeness of Irish nationalism damaging the rationality of the lexicon?
