Known or Suspected Famous Trekkies/Trekkers

138 posts in this topic

Dr who and Takara, I am sure Douglas Adams was a fan but i am afraid that he is dead. He died of a heart attack about 4 years ago. He was a fantastic author of science fiction so am sure he would have liked all the star trek shows. The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy can be heard

(i think it's still there) on radio at the bbc website, the second series is coming soon.

I'm aware he ascended to a different dimension... Did so 3.8 years ago. :P

First funeral broadcasted over the Internet.

 

Though, it happens to be the D.N.A.'s birthday today, so happy birthday Adams! :o :P

:P

I believe Alan Keyes recent Senate candidate in Illinois and VERY conservative, Black Republican said he liked Star Trek in either Chicago Sun Times or Chicago Tribune - could be verified. Also the old show In Living Color used to do Star Trek parodies some writer or someone on show must have liked or watched Star Trek.

Perhaps writers on SG1 are also fans. Does ST.com have any such info I wonder?

People at Pixar Animation Studios need to be added to the list. I don't know who specifically to add so I'll just put them all.

 

There were many Trek references in Toy Story and Toy Story 2.

 

I was watching The Incredibles for the first time yesterday and there is a scene where Mr. Incredible finds the bones of a dead superhero in a cave and a word carved/lasered into the wall of the cave. The next scene he's trying to hack the bad guys computer and when he is prompted for a password he uses the word he saw in the cave and gets in. The password was Kronos.

Dennis Haysbert, former President David Palmer on 24

 

Here's an entry on the Wikipedia regarding Michelle Forbes appearances on 24:

 

Her co-star, Dennis Haysbert, is a Trekkie and was reportedly thrilled to be working with her, since she played the character of Ro Laren in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

I can't believe I forgot to include The Wiggles on this list. From their TOS-style costumes to the alien character who says "resistance is futile", there can be no doubt.

 

Also, someone who worked on The Big Comfy Couch. I saw an episode once where a TNG command uniform jacket with captain's pips was hanging on Granny Garbanzo's clothes line.

I'm adding Jane Wiedlin of the GoGo's to the list. Apparently she named her current band froSTed and the capitalized "ST" stands for Star Trek. She also appeared in ST IV as an alien communications officer.

Tony Danza can be added to the list. On November 7, according to TrekToday

William Shatner appeared on television as Captain Kirk once again, allowing Tony Danza to fulfill a long-time fantasy of appearing on the Enterprise bridge
If you want to see the interview check out Boston_Legal.org although the streaming video ain't that great.

I just tried it myself, you're right, the streaming really is not very good. It's fun nonetheless though.

I've found another copy that's better. I hope this works for everyone.

That was pretty funny. Too bad Shatner couldn't get into the spirit of things and had to be a comedian rather than read Danza's script.

I think David X. Cohen and a few other people who worked on Futurama were Trekkers.

He'll be added to the next update.

Jon Stewart can be added to the list. I saw a post over at trekbbs, claiming Stewart made reference to the Genesis Device from Star Trek II in one episode of the Daily Show.
