So Gates Mcfadden's favourite episode is 'Genesis' (the one with the crew de-evolving (not devolving) into animals....).  At first I thought she was joking, then it turns out that is the only episode she directed, so I suppose it was probably the most interesting to make for her - but I still  think that should not translate to being her fav!

That's actually kinda sad.  Many actors aspire to direct, but that episode is openly mocked by fans, and it was the one they gave to her to direct.

Probably no coincidence. She was probably nagging to direct or it might have been negotiated in her contract, so they just gave her a throwaway episode that didn't matter. They're not going to let an actor with no directing experience do BOBW or something.

Ha ha, I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense.  I know Frakes started out by directing a few TNG episodes, and now I see his name pop up in other shows as well.

I just imagine Gates McFadden trying to expand her resume, and when they ask her what experience she has directing, she says "I directed an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation."  Then they ask her which one, she tells them "Genesis" and they're like "WHAT?  GTFO!"

Several of them have gone on to direct after Trek. Jonathan Frakes, Robert Duncan McNeill, and Roxann Dawson have been quite successful, Levarr Burton has done some stuff too, probably more I'm forgetting.

I've seen McNeill on a few things, and Burton as well.  I don't think I've seen Roxann Dawson's name pop up for directing, but I actually watch a lot of TV, so it's probably shows I've never seen.

Frakes hasn't directed a movie for a long time. Think it was Clockstoppers or thunderbirds but will have to check.

If you check her imdb, she's done a lot of known shows. It's easy to miss if you're not specifically looking out for the credit or don't register the name in those few seconds it's on screen.

Shit.  I meant to say I don't actually watch a lot of TV, which is why I haven't seen her work.

They all have to start somewhere. As I understand it, you tell the producers you'd like to direct and they send you to "directors camp." You learn the ropes and maybe some day they give you a shot. Briggs-Dawson directed several ENT episodes. I know Tuvok's first directing shot was Living Witness, which was an excellent episode.

Do you have any directing experience ? :)

Says here you directed a single episode :)

:D 1 isn't a number ?

Still plowing my way through TOS but since my girlfriend was home we started to watch DS9. She liked it, never having watched any ST aside from the first two Adrams movies.

Yea, she is gone for the next couple of weeks but we are going to watch it when she comes back. I have once chance to sell her on a movie and I'm debating on Wrath of Khan or First Contact.

Wrath of khan for sure.

First Contact is Die Hard on a spaceship.

Wrath of Khan is just better.

Great choices, probably the two best choices here. Comes down to preference I think. I'd probably go TWOK though, because Montalban makes everything better.

I was wondering whether Into Darkness out performed the other two movies because all the Sherlock fans went to see it ?

Yeah there probably aren't THAT many - but why else would it gross over $450m and the other two not even make $400 ?

So - talking about Star trek actors who can't play any other character...

I thought Dwight Schultz did a good job playing NOT Barclay in that one episode where the Ferengi try to steal 7 of 9 through a wormhole.

Still making my way throw TOS. Watching "The Return Of The Archons" right now. Almost seems like a holodeck episode without the holodeck

Do we know when the holodeck was invented ?

Was the Galaxy class starship the first "line" to get it ?

It's kind of a blessing and a curse that Discovery can't do one single holodeck episode.

Then again - it's like Moore's Law. We have holograms and Virtual Reality in the 21st century. You'd think that in another 200 years we'd have a holographic environment.

That probably would have been unthinkable in 1966.

I suspect it was shortly after the last Jazz Bar closed for for business.  Mourning the loss of this once great recreational pastime, engineers realised the only way to recreate the melancholy ambience only a Jazz Bar can create was to make one in a virtual reality existence.   Hence the creation of the Holodeck and why what feels like well over 50% of Holodeck episodes are set in a sodding Jazz Bar....

Red Dwarf did it much better (than life) :)

Most of the Holodeck episodes were the most unimaginative and merely served as a way to get the crew off the ship whilst not leaving the ship.

Voyager was by far the most unimaginative with the holodecks. Apart from Tom's Capt. Proton show - they were either in Sandrine's or Da Vinci's workshop.


Not to mention that actual logic goes out the window in a holodeck - someone could remain on a train and the other people could get off the train and walk around a town - in the same holodeck.

Well you certainly do have a type.

Did you blow off TOS altogether? It that chick's around you're at the end of season 4 of TNG, I reckon.
