    He's got big hashtag resistance energy on Twitter, but I gave him a follow.

    Ppl posting cringe to my tl is the price I'm willing to pay to support all trek actors and crew.

    Well, the first thing she did when she got cut off from the collective was eat the flesh of her fellow borg, so that's not a surprise. .

    What if Ales plays the part of Maddox better than whatshisface did?

    He probably will, but it’s irrelevant. You recast someone when you don’t have to, you lose a point. These are my personal rules :)

    Maybe they had to recast. Couldn't reach an agreement with Brophy, who knows.

    Maybe Brophy retired from acting and didn't want to return. We have no idea why the re-casted the part.

    If it's the John Ales I'm finding, he's 10 years younger than Brian Brophy, so it definitely doesn't fix the age issue from "Measure of a Man," for what that's worth. Guy would've been the only infant on the board to determine whether Data should've been allowed to join Starfleet.

    It looks like this episode is written by Kirsten Beyer according to IMDB (may not be accurate)

    If he can invent Androids, he can invent a way to make himself age slower.

    I don't know. :shrug:

    What about that Cellular Entertainment Chamber from DS9's "In the Cards"? (I'm grasping at straws and I know it...)

    Stewart's also playing a character older than himself. So what's the problem again?

    The link to the photos at startrek.com indicates the episode was written by Beyer, directed by Frakes.

    He doesn't really look all that worried to me. ;)

    If the age discrepancy is the same, he would've been a teenager then.

    I'm pretty sure Maddox isn't the 24th Century's Doogie Howser..

    Based on the trailers and pictures, this episode looks like it could be a lot of fun. I'm hoping it breaks up the monotony, even though the last episode did so at the beginning.
