    Audio books is interesting. Wonder if they might get him to do "The Good That Men Do" and "Kobayashi Maru." ;)

    Audio books are books that have been recorded and sold on CD so you can listen to them (while driving, or doing housework, for example), or as you suggested for the blind.

    Thanks for that - recorder set already!
    I think if I listened to an audio book read by CT, I wouldn't really be able to follow the plot very well ..... :devil:

    If Connor recorded Enterprise audio books I would definitely buy them.Pocket books is going to start having Star trek audio books again because of the new Star trek movie coming out next month. I'd love to see A good that men do come out as an audio book read by Connor and Kobayashi Maru too.:)

    Good catch Frenchman, we can't drop off the page!!

    That reminds me, I've got a question. I'm sure I read somewhere that Connor can speak french, does anyone know if that's true -can you imagine listening to him speaking it!:)

    Connor's wife, Ariana, is a Francophile (they got married in France). I think she speaks French and I think she has taught him some, but I've never heard him say anything in French.

    Anybody else out there know for sure?

    Only other language I have heard him speak is Spanish.

    I found the interview where French was mentioned it was an on-line chat transcript on Startrek.com where Connor was asked if he spoke any other languages. His answer:

    CT: I wasted money on 4 years of French in school, nothing against the French.

    I got the impression from that he was either not very good at it or didn't get the opportunity to use it often, but if his wife speaks it, he's got plenty of opportunity to practice!:) Hadn't heard he could speak Spanish.

    I don't think he speaks Spanish. They took a vacation to Spain a couple of weeks before he attended the Seatrek convention in 2007.

    He commented during one of our dinners with him that he had problems because the Spanish apparently resent Americans who expect everyone on Earth to speak English, so even if they're fluent, they won't use English when speaking to American tourists.

    Ariana made an effort to speak Spanish (presumably using Spanish/English dictionary or translation device) so she got along with them better than he did. :lol:

    i have no proofs to prove that ( i'm not a genealogist :)), but Ariana's name is Navarre. and, in France, Navarre is the name of an old area, located in south shared between France and Spain (that doesn't exist anymore). so we can conclude that she had some ancestor in France or Spain who immigrated in US and took the name of Navarre. so maybe she speaks a little bit french and/or spanish. in this case, she certainly learned some words to Connor.

    As I understand it, Ariana Navarre is her stage name. She was born, I think, in California. And I'm pretty sure she doesn't speak just a little French, she's fluent.
