Linked to, but not entirely to do with this post, I live in the town where Arthur C. Clarke was born!!!! Don't often get the chance to say that to people who'll appreciate it as much as they should. :D

One thing I've always wondered . . . having done so many episodes, so long ago, how can you seperate each memory of the future from the other??? I'm suprised everything's not just one big TNG memory of the future.

Delta Vega is a different Delta Vega that is just named after Delta "RIP-Gary-Mitchell" Vega, just so you know. Good point about Guinan though!

I noticed that you 'liked' my review on goodreads, which I am very grateful for, would that be the kind of review you were thinking about? Also if you're interested, I've written about your writing on my blog as well, http://icoomber.wordpress.com/2009/09/10/in-which-i-write-about-a-writer-who-writes-about-writing/ .

Having just watched Star Trek again (God bless play.com delivering early), and knowing what I now know, ZOMG it so is you, and that is so awesome!!!! (Dad needed to check the football/soccer scores before I got chance to check all the credits though. Sorry.)

Gah! There's something about the words "This video is not available in your country due to copyright restrictions" that really grinds my gears!!!!

Devon Cream FTW, but with croissant and marmalade???? Patrick Stewart would never make such a mistake. It's a good job they don't get the internet down in Devon, or they'd be up in arms. Devon Cream goes with scones and jam!

Welcome to my blog. so far this is it, but I'm hoping that over time it will grow and be fruitful. That of course depends entirely on me. I can't say I have the best effort when it comes to these things, but here I am giving it another go. But who am I? I can be described as many things, most of which generally mean the same thing. Most of the time I am summed up with the word 'geek'. Although conforming to the various stereptypes has come about unintentially, I still consider the mantle as a title to... Continue reading

I agree that defining what a geek actually is, will always be difficult. I have to admit I don't know anything about programming and the only RPG's I play are Final Fantasy, but still call myself a geek because I am a big fan of Star Trek and sci-fi in general, I have a Film and TV degree, and have the weirdest taste in obscure films, and have been known to perform in Monty Python sketches in talent shows. I don't really socialise in geeky circles like conventions (mainly due to living on the edge of nowhere), but watch the 'Trekkies' films with a warm fuzzy feeling inside, like that is where I beling. Am I wrong to call myself a geek?

Just wanted to say thanks for uploading the clip. Although I think you're a great actor in the things I've seen you in, and read some of your books, watching this clip seems like the first time I've seen 'you', if that makes sense. And it definately means I'm gonna have to come and see you in person at a convention at some point.

So wouldn't have recognised you if I hadn't already known, but 'hit robots, make fall down' was awesome. Also had a look back at your ficlets and remembered how good they were as well, but am I mistaken or didn't you right a horror/thriller based on people not going out at night, or something similar?
