Blog #27: Great Trek Actors Who Need More Work

I listen to the 'Nerd Lunch' podcast and one of their franchise topics is 'Give That Guy some Work' where they discuss great actors from TV and film who have not been seen in anything for a while. Got me thinking about some great Trek actors who are wonderful and I would like to see them in something again. Matt Frewer: I met Trek guest star Matt Frewer summer 2011 at the Calgary Expo and he was a great guy to meet. He played 'Rasmussen' in a 5th season TNG episode. He actually is a busy guy for work, but I'd like to see him in something like 'Dexter' or 'Breaking Bad', or better yet 'Game Of Thrones'.  I loved his 90's comedy show 'Doctor, Doctor' and the drama 'Psi Factor' in the 90's. Awesome actor who needs to be included more on big projects. At the 2011 Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo I caught a Matt Frewer panel. Frewer is best known as 80's icon 'Max Headroom', but being a Trek ne…

Blog #26: My New Trek Series Premise, Pt III

As I write this it is my hope someone involved in the creation of the new Trek series will read this idea and (hopefully) use it. My idea for a new series is this: Star Trek: Light In Darkness Section 32 on board the USS Yorktown travels the known Galaxy in secret undertaking missions needed for the protection of the Federation and it's allies. This will see the Yorktown travel everywhere from inside the former Romulan Empire, to the Klingon Empire, all the way to Deep Space 9 where it will travel to the Gamma Quadrant to determine if there is a Dominion conspiracy to destroy the Federation. Aside from DS9 we could possibly see Captain Riker and the USS Titan make an appearance, as well as other guest stars from TNG, DS9 and Voyager. I want to call it 'Light In Darkness' as this is a dark time for the Federation as the galaxy seems to be in turmoil. Also I wanted to get away from calling the series after the vehicle from which it takes place (Deep Space 9, Voyager, Enterpr…

As I write this it is my hope someone involved in the creation of the new Trek series will read this idea and (hopefully) use it. My idea for a new series is this: Star Trek: Light In Darkness Section 32: a new StarfleetIntelligence Task Force that answers to Admiral Janeway and/or Captain Worf. (Janeway and Worf would not be series regulars, but would guest star from time to time on the show). Going with people they trust or people they know capable of running Section 32 the way it needs to be run the new Intelligence Unit breaks down as follows: Main Characters: - General Thomas William Riker: Section 32's Field Leader. He receives the orders from Starfleet Command and carries them out. He also is considered Captain of Section 32's prototype stealth/cloak ship: The USS Yorktown. (The Yorktown is what Gene Roddenberry originally wanted to call the original Enterprise. Seemed fitting to use it here) - Colonel Helena Stane: Member of Starfleets military branch. Originally a memb…
