First of all, the stoic in me has to laugh. Secondly, I didn't know you were that tall, I guessed you at about 5'9". That's a pretty dated guesstimate, I recall you appearing a little taller than Patrick Stewart during TNG. Anyway, I had a similar accident on roller blades a few years ago near Fresno. My kids were like "Whoa Dad, did that hurt?" I just laid there looking at them, "Duh!"

Even stars get star struck. I remember being at the Walk Of Fame in the summer of 89', and my brother and I were comparing "The Duke's" shoe size with our own, it was just massive compared to my 9 1/2, and some guys walked up to us "Hey Guys, wanna be on Win Lose Or Draw!?" and I was like, "DUDE...watch out, you're stepping on the Duke!" I looked up and it was Burt Reynolds, Dom Delouise, and Lonnie Anderson. Now that was funny...I shook their hands, had a pretty good laugh, then had to confess I really wasn't a fan of the show, and I wouldn't mind attending if Patrick Stewart was gonna be there. I was only 18....

Ok this is a little off topic, but you know what sucks? Fanlib is supposed to shut down today. Ok, I only wrote KvP stuff there, but there's are tons of people out there somewhere who feel like I do, and have enjoyed reading all of the fan stories there....needless to say, that sucks.

Hey! Why don't we just...or actually "They" just put him on the next shuttle and send him off? It's our money, who would object? Put together a letter Wil, and I'll put my signature on it. I'm sure we could get tons and tons of signatures.

You know, it occurred to me that sometimes when you love something, you have to know when to let it go. I'm getting to a point where in the next couple of years my oldest daughter will be off to college. Her entire school experience has been a grooming process. Now a junior, she's starting to spread her wings a little, looking for summer work, and failing because this is Michigan. But I keep her going, like a good coach. This past month when she asked, "If I get accepted to UC Berkely or NYU, will you let me go?" I had to think for moment, several long moments. "Yes." I replied after about an hour. I had to think about how she conducts herself in school today and all of the life lessons I've tried to teach her and how to respond to different situations. So, I have to let her go and find her own place and discover her passions, whatever they may be. Though this is rather long winded, there is a purpose. When I read about the Star Trek Experience closing and other things going on, it occurred to me that it was time for Berman and company to let it go and hand the reigns over to the next generation, so to speak. They had a great run reviving the franchise in the 80's and 90's, but I say, if they love it as we do, then let it go, find some younger capable hands to put it in. Also, trust in their ability to take it "Where no man has gone before." while still remaining true to the main theme Roddenberry originally laid out. I think some Gen Xer's, having been the really the first to be introduced to so many technologies at such a young age, and having some remembrance of life before all the tech., have a very unique perspective on technology, politics, and social issues as well. They labeled us "X" because we didn't give a damn, they labeled us "X" because we were the lost generation, zoning in front of our 64's, vic 20's, apple II's, 2600's. We listened to weird music that ranged from Adam Ant, The Cure, Depeche Mode, to Black Flag, The Dead Kennedy's, to Metallica and Slayer. Now, and for the next several years we're poised to start taking control of our own country and imparting our own uniqueness on our nation for the next 20 plus years. I think today is a great day to begin taking the reigns of the Star Trek franchise as well. Obviously we need a few good men, any idea's Wil?

I've received the Nigerian scam at least two times this month... You know it really is sad an pathetic when you see some old folk who have responded to the scam and lost their life savings in the process. If it's too good to be true, then it is. You know what would be great? The re-emergence of the BBS, I always wanted to be a sysop...I remember my modem had an acoustic coupler for my 64, I think I was getting connected at about 300 baud. LOL That was sooo awesome. :) dude...check this out, you're gonna love it. I question the legality of some of the stuff here on the main site, but there is some other interesting things. :) http://www.hackcanada.com/canadian/phreaking/coupler.txt

There will be dark days ahead. Unless of course, Abrams can muster a comeback for the franchise. :(

Well congratulations. I would say, this particular blog is pretty insightful, coming from your own perspective and experience. The idea that you still experience those things others experience while going through an audition. It should also be ringing some bells for others trying to get their foot in the door, so to speak. In a couple of weeks I'll be auditioning at local theatre here in Michigan. The play is called Barefoot In The Park by Paul Simon. I can really get into the Telephone Man part. Eh..we'll see. I'm just gonna have fun with it. My perspective is, you only live once (that we know of) and I just want to do whatever I am physically and mentally capable of before they put me out to pasture. Whether it's writing, doing CG, animating, biochem, acting, mathematics, whatever. I always wanted to be Ben Franklin...don't want to look like him, but wanted to be him. LOL

Wil, Us people that would like to have some fun with this just need some guidelines, for motivational purpose and direction. We also need a way to submit. I could always post anything to my own site and just forward you the link here on your blog. And those of us "Involved" can do some peer review and maybe help each other out. As for the rest of anal retentive pissy pants whiners, I dunno... :) lol

Wil...dude... You could always go to www.wreckamovie.com to get a positive community response. The Wreck a Movie site is a platform created by the makers of StarWreck:In the Pirkinning for internet community involvement. I myself have been participating in the pre and post-productions of two different movies. Some of the task's included making desktops for your pc, and some writing. I'm sure Samuli and Timo would love to add you. Get a hold of them...here's an example of some posters I made for them. http://www.wreckamovie.com/system/shot_medias/0000/0158/mySaunaPoster2.jpg http://www.wreckamovie.com/system/shot_medias/0000/0168/mySaunaPoster4.jpg

Hey...some of the comments here are terrible. For one, you should consider this as an opportunity to do a little professional networking with somebody who's been established in the entertainment industry for 20+ plus years. Gee wiz, wouldn't you want that on your resume? I sure as hell would. At the very least, if nothing ever came of it, you could always say, "I designed the current line of coffee mugs and t-shirts for Wil Wheaton." damn...that's sweet! What's the matter with you guys? One other thing, opportunities are very in life. When I was 19 in 1990, going to acting school in Fresno. I had a guy and his mother try hard to motivate me to pursue an acting career and stay positive. Today, if you imdb that guy, Doug Jone's, you'll see a laundry list of stuff he's done since, including Hellboy 1 & 2, and the Hobbit sometime next year....kind of puts things into perspective.

Sounds like a good idea Wil. If I were to win, could you send me an autographed copy of one of my Kirk vs. Picard scripts, preferably the one with the heroic Wes dialog, "Of those who fall"? They're still up on my fanlib site here http://www.fanlib.com/user/profile.do?userId=kdhbj I'm gonna geek out on you here just for a second regarding my fanlib submissions, only because I haven't read them in quite awhile. In The Guardians Repose - Alternate Ending, Kirk was forced to fire on the Enterprise D because Enterprise D cut communications and severed the networked shield emitter, exposing the Enterprise to the Guardian planet, so Kirk targeted the tractor beam, I got some flack for that. And Wes holding his ground, against Lore, what could anyone do? Injured, Wes kills Lore's son Galen. In the end it turned out to be a Romulan simulation. And last of all, Picard asking for Troi because he just got mind frelled and needed some counseling. Anyway, cynthiab* at fanlib tore me a new asshole over it, but as I studied her review, it was pretty apparent that she never read the whole script, nor any Epictetus, and she didn't watch the show either. There. I said it. whew! (takes a breath) LOLLOLOL

Wil, I know you're busy as hell, but did it ever dawn on you to start a writers club? Some place where people could get some peer review as well as write in other capacities or activities, and maybe even have a contest or two. Like you, or some of your colleagues or other contemporaries could host workshops etc., or whatever. Think about dude. Imagine how much traffic something like that could bring to WWdN: In Exile?
