Nothing says "sexy" like a man confident in his own skin.
Exactly, when the sexy get together they call Gordon boss.
Janeway? So look what happened when they finally did let a woman drive - - - first episode she gets soooooo lost it takes the rest of the series to find a way home! That what she gets for putting on makeup while going into warp!
"Sir Patrick"? Oh, Blech! How about when he had a chance to short circuit all the Borg cubes and passed on it.... only to have them come and lay waste to most everything. Get Astro Neville Chamberlain outta the captain's chair!
Well, they can't knight Shatner, and anyway, who'd want to see him tear his shirt off nowadays?
Who is cooler than Shat? Just ask Stewie.
On the contrary, I believe that:
A) The Queen could knight William Shatner, a Canadian and
B) He would not have to strip for the ceremony.
Ah true....forgot Shat's a hozer.
I'll have to check, but I don't think Canadians can be knighted. In any event, I'm sure Shatner is a US citizen.
Canadians can be knighted, like William Stephenson (Intrepid) , even made a lord like Conrad Black (unless the PM decides to cause trouble) but I think Shat is an American citizen now.
I visited Shatner's website, but amazingly, it seemed almost totally focused on commercial sales.... so I took the last refuge and noted his Wiki biography has a sizable section on his Canadian birth and upbringing. So it appears that "It's MY ship" could indeed become Sir Its MY Ship....
That I would like to see.
Every time I think of Patrick Stewart I think of an interview he and Jonathan Frakes (Cmdr. William T. Riker) did where Frakes was talking about star ship acting where you would basically jump up and down in your chair to make it look like things were rough and they demonstrated it. Afterwards Frakes points at Stewart and says over 20 years in the Royal Shakespeare company just to get to star ship acting
We have a troll on an MMA website that calls himself Jonathan Frakes and posts threads saying we can ask him anything about anything, posts a lot about 'manly' things and beards, a lot about beards, very funny.
An outstanding career!
Think back - even without ST-TNG and X-Men - Patrick Stewart had some outstanding, less known roles:
Excalibur (1981) as Leondegrance
Dune (1984) Gurney Halleck
Lifeforce (1985) Dr. Armstrong
Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) King Richard
Moby Dick (1998-TV) Captain Ahab
A Christmas Carol (1999-TV) Mr. Ebenezer Scrooge
But the untold story unnamed sources have confirmed just to me it was his voice role as CIA Director Avery Bullock in American Dad that clearly most impressed the Queen.
BTW - I am sorry to bust all the Trekkies here, but by the middle of the 24th century do you think mankind could have discovered a cure for baldness???? Fer Christsakes !!!!!!!!!!!
Like the day after my death?
As I have prophesized it is written.
Actually the first role I remember him in is as Sejanus in I, Claudius with a really bad toupee.
As for baldness in the 24th century...errr well it is fiction, hate to break it to you but Superman can't really fly , Wolverine doesn't really have metal claws and Spider-man can't really stick to walls.
I, Claudius - now that was an interesting series. I remember watching that via a local PBS station on my B&W portable TV with rabbit ears in my bedroom at my parent's house. That was light years ago.
Sci-Fi is not factual?!?
Are you inferring that there are not seven-foot Wookies living in a galaxy far, far away?
My "24th century baldness" quip was actually from a TV critic's comments when the TNG series premiered way back in September 1987. It made me think even back then - within fifty years could diabetes and cancers become just "correctable ailments" - but will the common cold and baldness still haunt us humans.
Oh wait - we all are going to die in December 2012. Never mind.
Never underestimate the power of human vanity, I would bet on a cure for baldness before anything more serious.123
