Matt Stone and Trey Parker (Creators of South Park)

OOps, somebody said that already.

293659[/snapback]

Yep B)

 

By the way, they have a whole episode which is a takeoff of "Dagger of the Mind". The South Park episode's name was something like Roger Ebert should Layoff Fatty Foods. Matt and Trey are Trekkies big time.
I had thought they were. But then, I was not sure if the one or two times I heard Trek mentioned in SP was a coincidence or not (because I had not seen past the beginning of season 4 of South Park). I am glad to see that my guess was correct B)

 

 

 

Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer might be one. I know there were a few references to Trek in the series (ok, so there were also the slightly stereotypical characters that called themselves the Evil Trio or something like that. But as far as I remember there were more than just them)

You should add Christian Slayter.  He played the extra who woke Sulu up in The Undiscovered Country.

293731[/snapback]

 

 

He is on the list already, Van Roy. He's listed after Carol Mosley Braun and Whoopi Goldberg.

 

 

I'm going to update again once a few more names are added. It sure is getting long. Keep them coming.

I guess you could add Mel Brooks. He did spoof Trek in Spaceballs, is currently working on Spaceballs II which will probably also include somt Trek references, and he also put Patrick Stewart in Robin Hood: Men in Tights.

Robert Atkins, the developer of the Atkins diet apparently is a Star Trek fan.

 

Also, I believe Kathie Lee Gifford (shudder) may be one as well because one year for Halloween, she dressed up as Jadzia Dax.

I can't believe I never realised that was Iggy Pop as the Vorta.

He had an awesome line too:

 

Quark: "Family--you understand."

Yelgrun: "Not really. I was cloned."

 

His delivery of that line was just so good.

 

Plus he is the first to foreshadow the coming of the Breen into the war when he says:

 

Yelgrun: "And I thought the Breen were annoying...."

I just read that Neal McDonough - who plays Dr. Connor on Medical Investigations was an avid trek fan since his childhood. According to the article landing the role of Lt. Hawke in First Contact was a dream come true.

 

I was trying to remember where I saw him before.

Don't know why I didn't add him sooner, but I'm now adding Robin Williams to the list. He almost guested on TNG. The part of Berlingoff Rasmussen (A Matter of Time) was actually written for him but scheduling difficulties made it impossible for him to film the episode. Matt Frewer played the role instead.

 

I thought of that after reading this at st.com:

 

Deserving mention for the best Trek reference of the night was Robin Williams who, in his acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille award, thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press for the honor and also for the design of the ceremony's venue, saying that it looked like it was made for "Star Trek: The Musical."

Was reading an interview with Paul McGillion from Stargate: Atlantis, and he said that he had watched the entirity of TOS, so I guess that would make him a trek fan right?

Do you think it would be possible for these supposed Trek[kies/kers] to help out in the renewal of Star Trek? [The ones that are still alive, that is... :dude: ]

No one has mentioned Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. he and his whole family were big Star Trek fans, As a matter of fact its because of Dr. King that Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) stayed on the show!
