Star Trek Family


Gabriel Lorca is played by Jason Isaacs who stars in CBS latest prequel Star Trek universe - 10 years before Captain Kirk. Here's a great shot of Isaac's family smiling for London's 61st London Film Premiere.

 Holding Star Trek: The Original Series in remarkably high esteem, Jason Isaacs' initial reaction to being asked to appear in Star Trek: Discovery was to turn down the offer, adamant that he didn't want to participate in a horribly diluted version of the series that he respected so much.

"But then," he continued, "I set up a Skype, a slightly reluctant Skype, with these guys, and they had a great story to tell. They had a great character to play. And so, I shrugged off any of the yolk of the past and just jumped in to play this, to do this story."


So, all I meant was that I don't think about any of that stuff, because I couldn't go to work if I felt like the ghost of Bill Shatner and Patrick Stewart were breathing down my costume (laughter), and that there were 20 million people watching to see whether I cross my legs or press the left button or the right button.


Family is special. What are you doing this Christmas? Heres Wil Wheaton aka Wesley Crusher four days ago at a Star Wars movie!


“I loved #TheLastJedi!,” Wheaton tweeted out after the premiere. “It hit all the right notes for me, and seeing it in the Chinese Theater, surrounded by my fellow nerds was glorious. The Force was with us.
“Oh, and I went in costume for the first time ever, because I am a damn adult and I get to decide what that means.”


Have you seen Star Wars the Last Jedi? Were you one of Jedi or the Sith? Did you wear your uniform? Spot any Trekkies hiding in the audience wearing a Starfleet uniform? Star Trek TNG Star Wil Wheaton did!

Live Long and Merry Christmas everyone

Love the integrity of an actor prepared to turn down a role rather than compromise the story.
I haven't seen The Last Jedi yet, and have heard mixed reports.
I hope your Christmas is wonderful.

He went in a Star Trek costume - that is hilarious! Good for him.
Have a blessed Christmas!

I have not seen the new Star Wars yet. I will eventually.

I really like Jason Isaacs. Even after he played a villain in Harry Potter.

I love Last Jedi. I know not everyone is on board with it yet but it worked for me. I do feel I need a second viewing to really get it. The story is densely packed.

Great story about Jason Isaacs. That makes me want to see the series even more.

Haven't seen #TheLastJedi yet. Reports are excellent, so will do for sure.

Jason Isaacs has a log ot cred in his past performances, so he brings awesome whatever he does.

Wil Wheaton looks great. As a trekkie teacher, I wore my star trek pin, invited guest Klingons to speak in my classroom.
