Star Trek virtual meets/watch alongs with actors or notable staff

Fri Jun 12, 2020 12:24 pm

I started a thread for TNG actors/staff at https://www.tivocommunity.com/community ... aff.577731.

Awhile back, there was a watch-along of First Contact with Frakes (Riker and director of that movie) which was recorded and on YouTube.

There are two notable virtual meets coming up, one tomorrow. I did see the one w/Marina Sirtis and Brent Spiner recently.

As I posted at the TCF thread, this outfit previously did NOT record and post these streams but it seems they've changed their mind about that per https://galaxycon.com/galaxycon-live-fr ... questions/.

Anyway, post/discuss them or similar virtual Trek meets here.

In the middle of watching the meet w/the doctors. The actor who plays Dr. Phlox is pretty funny. He's dropped the F-bomb a few times.

Gates has told two funny stories, so far.

I'm sorry, but no Diana Muldaur and I won't watch.












Just kidding. I never really liked McFadden either, though, nor any of the doctors other than Phlox.

One funny story from Gates is about how she was hospitalized once and the doctor called her "Dr. Crusher" then went on to treat her like a colleague. The real doctor went over what they're going to do and so on...

She mentioned another story about a convention (IIRC) I think in Germany where someone passed out and someone said something like "you're a doctor. Do something!" She was like "uh... I just play a doctor."

Robert Picardo (EMH on Voyager) brought up https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Bo ... _(episode) which I totally forgot about. I need to finish rewatching this ep. There was an incident where EMH ended up inside Seven (as he put in "not in a fun way" :lol:) and was controlling her. I've rewatched a few parts of that so far and it was very funny to see Seven acting totally out of character.

The Shatner one this morning was a bit of a letdown as I hoped he'd actually talk about Trek. I made some comments at https://www.tivocommunity.com/community ... t-12092134. If/when I reach 89 years of age, I'd hope I'm as functional as he is at 89. Amazing!

From https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000559/ vs https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000638/, Nimoy and Shatner were born within days of each other yet, Nimoy died in 2015 while Shatner still seems to be going strong. Unfortunately, Nimoy's smoking probably is what helped contribute to his early demise.

Not even Dr. Boyce?
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Dr. Boyce would've been impossible. Per https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/John_Hoyt, the actor died in 1991.
