    Michelle Forbes turned down regular roles on DS9 and VOY because at the time she wanted to become a movie actress, and she thought having a weekly series would hinder that. She had no issue with doing occasional guest work on TV though.

    Considering her movie aspirations never worked out - and beginning with 24 she began accepting full-time TV roles - I don't think that would hold true any longer. Plus of course any role she had would just be for a few episodes regardless.

    I think they should change the opening credits. Just have a school bus that Picard drives that goes around picking up Berman-era characters.

    There are more important issues facing this world than guest stars on a TV show.

    None of us have any control over it, so why fuss about it? Why expend energy over it?

    TPTB are going to do what they want.

    "Why, yes, I am!"

    I think it's pointless to complain about something that we have no control over.

    Freedom of choice.
    Pretty much, yes. But, that seems to be the nature of fandom.

    Sometimes it's okay to have a bit of fun with it.

    The TrekBBS wouldn't even exist unless we nitpicked things over which we have no control.

    So, when does this "fun" start?

    "Guinan? Why did you give me a copy of A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court?"
    "How well do you know your eclipses, Jean-Luc? Could give you an advantage when you need one."
    "Don't talk to me in riddles! I'm too old for that merde."
    "Old? You? Not from where I'm standing."
    "Oh cut that out. You're not even bald."
    "That you know of..."
    "Do you remember when we first met, Jean-Luc?"
    "What? After we found Data's head?"
    "What if that wasn't the first time? That's all I can give you. Like that book. Sometimes memory is like an eclipse."

    Once the inevitable "What color will Guinan's dreds be?" thread turns into a dark corridor of the soul and gets locked because someone calls her a Mary Sue .

    I was going to say something similar. She did "Swimming with Sharks" which was pretty good (Spacey, the "what" guy from Pulp Fiction). Not really much else.

    She did nuBSG.

    With Wil Wheaton doing Ready Room, anything is possible.

    It's basically the mission statement of this board.

    Yeah, when people say we nitpick too much on this board I have to chuckle and say: "Why are you even here?" :lol:
