News Bullets

  • As seen at ShatnerVision, William Shatner discusses how his hip surgery had sidelined him from riding horses for a while and how he was looking forward to getting back in the saddle again.

  • TrekMovie.com reports that George Takei appeared recently on the Conan O'Brien show, where he took shots at William Shatner for Shatner's inability to pronounce "Takei" properly and at Shatner's acting style, of which Takei said, "I thought it sucked".

  • As reported by Trekweb.com, Rob Caves, executive producer of the fan series Star Trek Hidden Frontier, Star Trek: The Helena Chronicles, Star Trek: Odyssey, and Operation Beta Shield, has announced a new four-part mini-series titled Star Trek Federation One.

    The mini-series will focus on the President of the United Federation of Planets, and fans will see the day-to-day operation of the Federation and the inner workings of Federation government. A conspiracy that threatens the peace with the Romulans will be much of the focus of Federation One.

  • An interview with Rob Caves regarding Star Trek Federation One can be seen at Trekweb.com, where Caves explains more about the series. The official website for the series can be found here.

Re: News Bullets

Sometimes I get the impression Takei is a really funny and good-natured person, other times he comes off as incredibly bitter.

Shame on George Takei

I am really tired of this "anything for a laugh" mentality that Mr. Takei has adopted lately. He makes fun of his cast mates, and ALLOWS himself to be the punchline to many anti-gay jokes. It's not very attractive, I have to say.

I spent an afternoon with him at a convention in the 80's, and I assure you, he didn't "bad mouth" other actors then. I find it... very disappointing.

Re: News Bullets

i find it silly for any of the actors in TOS to criticize anyone else's acting. Takei is no great actor himself.

Re: News Bullets

As a professional actor myself, I feel very strongly about this. Actor's simply don't criticize other actor's work. Each of us is obviously doing the very best that we can.

What did Spock say to Kirk in WOK when asked how his cadets would perform?

"Each according to his gifts,"

A little generosity, friends, is a sign of strength.

Thank You. Well said. I'm sure George Takei is a lovely man with a great sense of humor. He's just hanging around Howard Stern too much.
