    I'm not sure this one counts. In that episode, both Picard and Data clearly refer to O'Brien as "Colm", suggesting that Meany was not playing O'Brien.

    ^ They're calling him 'Conn' (his function on the bridge), not Colm.

    As noted above, they called him "Conn" and indeed I thnk that's what he's listed as in the credits. All Good Things clearly establishes that "Conn" in indeed O'Brien.

    Besides, I said Colm Meaney can wear a red shirt and survive, not O'Brien. So whatever he may have been called in Farpoint, my point still stands.

    Colm Meany dislikes misheard dialogue. Dislikes it a lot...

    Me too, which is why I'm gonna start watching with the CC on, despite the fact that I'm not deaf.

    Mostly.

    For example, after reading your replies, I played that scene again with the CC on, and even though the word "Conn" DOES appear onscreen, I still hear "Colm".

    ^ Yeah, I don't recall any other time a person was referred to as "Conn"... only "you have the Conn," not "you, Conn". ;)

    FACT: Colm Meaney doesn't like to see others suffer and so is upset when people subject themselves to Encounter at Farpoint.

    Colm Meaney wears a kilt to sleep at night.

    FACT: Colm Meaney wrote the first draft of City on the Edge of Forever at the age of twelve, but gave it to Harlan Ellison because he thought he needed the break.

    Colm Meaney wrote "The Jungle", and doesn't really have an opinion about it. He's glad it's a staple of the American public school system though.

    Ellison, however, changed Meany's script in one small detail. Meany wanted Kirk to save Edith, but Ellison changed it so that the captain froze in indecision. It created a rift between the two, and they have not spoken to this day. Proof? Have you ever seen Ellison and Meany in the same photograph?!

    Compelling evidence, I agree.

    (Little-known) FACT: Colm Meaney is the love child of John F Kennedy and Mother Theresa

    FACT: Colm Meaney still holds the record for the highest-grossing album of spoken-word versions of Broadway show tunes ever released.

    FACT: Colm Meaney can turn wine into water, using only his own kidneys.

    FACT: Originally, the film Star Trek: Nemesis was intended to feature Picard and co fighting against a Romulan clone of Chief O'Brien...until Colm Meaney accurately pointed out that in this scenario there was no way the Enterprise crew could possibly win without it looking like a cop-out.

    FACT: Plus the O'Brien wig he had to wear, hand-crafted from solid brass wire, made actor Tom Hardy come out in an unsightly scalp-rash.

    FACT: Colm Meaney was the inspiration for the song I Kissed A Girl. And he did indeed, like it.

    Colm Meany loves it when his fans talk about Colm Meany.
