Burton Critical of Berman And Baird

With Jonathan Frakes at the helm, Star Trek: Nemesis could have been changed and saved says the former Geordi LaForge. As reported by, although he enjoyed his time on Star Trek: The Next Generation, LeVar Burton had some criticism...

You guys REALLY need to restore the links from the articles to its specific discussion thread. I had to jump through several hoops to find this.

He struck me as quite a bitter person in a few interviews, and it seems that hasn't changed.
Kim: I'm detecting some weird technobabble.
Janeway: A possibly dangerous anomaly that we know nothing about?
Kim: Yeah. I suppose we should steer clear.
Janeway: Ha! Good one, Ensign. Take us in, Mr. Paris.

I actually think he's saying some very honest things in a non-spiteful way. And we all know it comes from the questions asked, for them to answer.

I don't see him being spiteful or deliberately picky or overstating things, just being honest on how he felt.

LeVar Burton is probably the least bitter person to have been involved in Star Trek.

Well, he's 100% right in that Baird apparently didn't know what he was doing, or maybe just didn't care. I think Baird saw the Trek directing gig as kind of an insult. You should listen to the NEM director's commentary. He sounds half asleep and doesn't seem to understand exactly what he's watching most of the time.

Burton doesn't sound at all bitter - even though it would be perfectly justified given how much time he put into TNG. Obviously he's disappointed, but Burton's a real cool guy.
