    I was able to meet Ethan at a Star Trek Convention, while I was in London in 1997, he was great. I hope that he had a great birthday, and "all the best" for the future. It would be nice to see him in another Star Trek project in the future.:techman:

    A belated happy birthday, Ethan!

    I met him last year. A truly nice guy and he was a great sport to even pose with my action figures :D

    A little late to the party, but what the hell... Happy Birthday Ethan!

    Unlike some people, I actually really liked Neelix, and I thought Ethan Phillips did a great job portraying him, expertly balancing the usual humorous bits with the occasional dramatic episode (I think "Jetrel" and "Mortal Coil", to name a few, turned out quite well).

    I liked Neelix, too. He was harmless. He never got on my nerve.

    A belated Happy Birthday to Ethan Phillips. Just watched Rise! on Skiffy last night... Neelix's interactions with Tuvok were always my favorite character development moments of his, and I agree with Daneel that he brought quite a bit more subtlety to Neelix than he generally gets credit for.

    That said, I had an experience with him that was less than open, fanwise. I recall being at the opening day of Star Trek: The Experience on opening day and he was one of the invited guests. We were walking out of the SpaceQuest Casino into the rest of the hotel and passed him going the other way. He spotted us wearing combadges and although he was at a Trek-themed event walking toward one of the Trekkiest environments on the face of the Earth, he didn't seem ready for a fannish encounter at just that moment. His eyes widened for a second as he recognized our combadges and then he tucked his face into the shoulder of his female companion and hurried past us head bowed "avoid the paparazzi"-style. I called back over my shoulder after he'd passed, "Relax, dude... you're just Neelix."
