A Fan Celebrating the Borg's 30th


 Jeri Ryan is always on the track aka Seven of Nine celebrating the latest Borg vibes with us. She appears at a couple of Star Trek conventions each year and her birthday is Feb 22, 19--..... and here she is with her husband Christophe. Well it would've been rude for me to just blurt out her age! In 2016 July 23rd, she joined William Shatner, Scott Bakula, Brent Spiner and Michael Dorn at a jam packed San Diego Comic-Con panel celebrating Trek's 50th Anniversary..



"The Borg are badass, but I think also its about them being a villain we can learn a little something from."

 In 2014 she reprised her role as Seven of Nine for Star Trek Online's Delta Rising game. So here's a new interview with quotes directly from Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero One herself thanks to our friends at Star Trek magazine...

JERI RYAN

 "The fans are amazing, and conventions are an easy way to stay in touch with them" Ryan stated enthusiastically. "It makes people happy. I get it. If I met somebody that I'm a fan of, I fall to pieces and I'm a mess and have no cool at all. So I get how exciting it is for somebody to talk to you and smile at you and see you like you're a human, because a lot of people don't.

 Thats not cool and thats always disappointing for me when I meet an actor who doesn't appreciate and respect the fans, because none of us would be anywhere without the fans. They're the only reason any of us are employed be writer, actor, producer, studio head any of us. They're such a passionate, a loyal, dedicated bunch of fans.

 "I've also met some of the Discovery actors and they're all lovely, very sweet," Ryan says "Its makes me excited to be part of the franchise. They tend to be excited to be part of the Trek family and we are happy to have them in it. I think they're all great additions."

Live Long and Prosper, Trekkers

PICARD IS BACK

Serial number: SP 937-215 
USS Stargazer (NCC-2893), (2333–2355)
 USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D, (2364–2371)
USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E, (2372–)



Here is a list of Starfleets spaceships captained by JEAN LUC PICARD. Impressive isn't it? To boldly engage worthy opponents of the Federation's like Preator Shinzon, Ardra, Q the Omnipotent, Nausicaans and the Borg Queen took strength of will and determination which we've all experienced in Star Trek TNG....well now the most noted captain in space exploration and interstellar diplomacy...... I'm lost for words my friends,  Picard's back... 


CAPTAIN JEAN LUC PICARD
STAR TREK FIRST CONTACT


 Word is we're definitely witnessing the return of our Star Trek hero, friend, diplomat and protector to guide us once again through the stars after 18 years of wilderness... Star Trek nemesis, well lets be honest was pure bewilderment and Data's death? lets not even go there!!! what a disaster. Fans say Picard is great for talking his way out of trouble but do you consider him an action-man? Remember Star Trek First Contact? Despite all his diplomacy, tough talk, and we come in peace, Picard proved he had what it takes to blaze off rifle rounds and make Borg pay....




 Amazon beat Netflix to stream CBS' new Picard series in more than 200 countries and territories. The show is currently filming to stream later this year which began in April in Los Angeles, so how will Patrick Stewart reprise his role? Little is known except for speculation. Is Patrick Stewart returning as an academy instructor? admiral, captain or civilian? Its no secret Patrick Stewart has the Midas touch so for some amazing reason, Stewarts got the gift to make it so with us - the fans.

Starfleet has the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-E so whats next? Who gets the captains chair? Johnathan Frakes gets the directors chair with SirPatStew as executive producer. Recent Star Trek Picard leaked photos give us Picard in civilian clothes with an Ensign asking his name.

What do you think? Speak now to be heard and become immortalized for all trek time, lol.


CAPTAIN JEAN LUC PICARD
FIRST CONTACT



Even the name sounds cool, Star Trek Picard - so much is right about it. The USS Enterprise represents true hope, vast technology, and service to humankind. According to Alex Kurtzman, we should not expect a reboot of Star Trek TNG but rather expect a more psychological show about a man in his twilight years, the hero we need right now. 

What are you hoping for when you switch on Star Trek Picard?

Live Long and my Trekker Friends, Picard is back!

STAR TREK DISCOVERYS ONGOING MISSION

Science Fiction and in particular Star Trek is important. Consider all the great novels and movies produced in the 20st century and leading into the 21st. Theres no shortage of Sci-Fi works to discover by any of the greats. Isaac Asimov, H.G.Wells, Arthur C. Clarke. Robert Heinlein was often called the "dean of science fiction writers".  J.R.R. Tolkien sequel, "Lord of the Rings" is a best seller with over 150 million copies sold, Dune is another winning a nebula, I Robot was made into a blockbuster movie.



 World building is essential and when you're telling a Star Trek story, you're creating a multi episode arc thats physically one long story... Its really vital that writers know what it is before the telling begins and better again knowing the ending is fantastic!!! Star Trek Discovery has these fascinating elements and we're now into 29 episodes at a cost of 300 million dollars to make the show.

The question I'm putting to you trekkers is how do you rate Star Trek Discovery's dialogue? because the writing... what do you think? some say its dreadful..... while others some say its jolly good fun.... so which is it? So lets examine these clues without begrudging anyone.

So why not go further some say.... lets rip off an original Sci Fi concept or name from an already published book and while we're at it - remember to read it! That way we get the elements of the plot right?..... well now thats unfair I say.



Its a well established fact copycats plagiarize (which Google hates) but I don't know about the movie business and storytelling, that kind of thing takes it a level further or so some say. So what do you believe Trekkers? Is it time to Trekkinate the plagurators? Has David Mack Book titled Star Trek Section 31 - "Control" been used for Star Trek Discovery?

Some might say "ripped off" but hold on now, thats rash speculation? Odds are high CBS own the rights to Macks book, so what do you say? How do you rate Star Trek Discovery from 1 to 10?

Should CBS writers be congratulated for their hard scientific imagination boldly blowing up where no starship has gone before!

Live Long and Prosper my trekker friends
