Discussion in 'Future of Trek' started by Mr. Laser Beam, Jul 21, 2019.
Marina Sirtis has tweeted that Riker and Troi will be appearing on the show. W00t!
Yeah they they announced this at the panel yesterday.
Better not be a holodeck program.
I was so happy when I heard that news watching the Picard panel on youtube!
Cool! Thanks for posting that tidbit!
You guys remember about a year ago, Stewart and many people from the old cast had dinner together AFTER Picard was announced? That’s your clue.
You’ll excuse me if I don’t jump for joy.
Frakes must be involved in more Star Trek productions than any other actor at this point.
TNG (actor, director)
DS9 (actor, director)
VOY (actor, director)
PIC (actor, director)
And 4 movies (2 as director also)
Looking forward to the return of Troiker
The only TNG cast member who wasn't there was Jonathan Frakes and that was because he was directing an episode of Discovery.
TOS - the only series not to be blessed by Frakes.
He clearly dropped the ball by not being born early enough.
Dorny managed mine.
Since this may be their last outing.
400 quatloos says that they're in the middle of their divorce, and at one point in the story she says "I SHOULD HAVE MARRIED WORF!!!"
He could have appeared in the same manner Clint Howard did, if he wasn't such a slouch as a child!
Time to petition CBS to insert Frakes into TOS via cgi.
Drop him into "Miri"! He would've been 13 and starting puberty. What better fit?
Cue Worf entering the room. Everyone else looks at him, and breaks down laughing at the timing of it.
"Clearly, I missed my calling as a comedian!"
That alone might bring about a retcon series of Kirk TOS.
Majel Barrett has him beat by 3 films:
DS9 (actor, writer)
And 7 films (2 as Chapel, 5 as Computer Voice)
Frakes is older than several TOS performers (Phil Morris, Dawn Roddenberry, both of Shatner's kids, John Megna, Craig Hundley). He just had the misfortune of being in eastern Pennsylvania when the casting calls went out.
