Star Trek Crazy

I've just recently got the DVD for Star Trek The Next Generation Season 1 and I've been watching it on and off for the past few days. Needless to say, my interest in Trek has been revived somewhat, specially with the news of a new Star Trek movie currently being shot. It has Romulans, a Data Subplot, and some old familiar faces specially Wil Wheaton returning as Wesley Crusher.

Now, go VISIT Wil Wheaton's site. Right now! It's one of the most entertaining sites I've been too. He's got a blog that he updates regularly and it's quite refreshing because he doesn't bullshit around and doesn't hold back what he really wants to say.

Bryan Singer in Star Trek!

Yes, X-Men Director Bryan Singer will make a speaking cameo in the upcoming Star Trek Movie Nemesis.

Patrick Stewart, star of the upcoming Star Trek: Nemesis movie, confirmed to the Sci Fi Wire a widespread rumour that his X-Men director, Bryan Singer, will appear in the tenth Trek feature film. "Oh, you heard about that?" he said in a recent interview. Nemesis opens nationwide in December. X-Men 2 goes before the cameras in May, with Stewart reprising his role as Prof. Charles Francis Xavier.

Warning! Spoilers below.

Stewart also offered spoilers about Singer's role. "It was intriguing for me, because I had seen him as the director of a multimillion-dollar movie on vast soundstages with huge sets and a big, classy cast. When I told Nemesis executive producer Rick Berman that I'd invited him on the set, it was his idea that maybe he'd like to put in a guest appearance. They gave him a line. He does actually have dialogue. He's a bridge officer during a particularly dramatic sequence on the bridge. He has action, and he has a piece of dialogue.
