Reminds one of Nichelle Nichols of Star Trek fame. They said the same about her some years previously.

One presumes she isn't dead yet though?

Alive, well and playing a recurring role at Trekkie conventions these days. Discussed hereabouts on our Crew of the USS Enterprise thread.
She was interviewed on TV a couple of years back can't remember who by, think it may have been Graham Norton or Jonathon Ross, I don't think there is much chance of her going soon, she seemed pretty healthy and is only in her early 70's.

She looks pretty good here

Amazing how all those actors(?) in Star Trek have lived on the back of it for 40 years! I believe the program was originally only supposed to run for a few episodes.

I'm sure all this should be in the USS Enterprise thread but I can't be arsed today.

To return to one of my favourite Deathlist Threads, the Star Trek / Art Garfunkel Poetry Appreciation thread does anyone here live near Lyon. The slap-headed cock-knocker will be walking from there (at some point) en route to Grenoble in his terrifyingly pointless 'Eurowalk' during which he threatens more poetry. Would it be too much to suggest he meet with an unfortunate accident with a hunter polishing his sniper-rifle?

Having bought and savoured Nimoy's excreble tome "Will I Think of You' I'll vouch for the Vogonity of its contents. In fact I once heard a Douglas Adams fan suggesting the idea for Vogon poetry was inspired by the fact that 'Spock' wrote such crap. Another celeb pushing him all the way in the pretentious drivel stakes is Art Garfunkel, an individual so self-obsessed his official site lists every book he's read since the late sixties and the number of pages contained therein.

The link below gets you within range of Art's writing, mainly poems and 'prose poems.' 'Still Water' offers the worst of the drivel...you have been warned!

Art's 'Art'

Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear
I got to find who's now the number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here

Excuse me while I disappear

Um, no it would not be. So go on ahead, suggest it.

I walk to Lyon in January just for the thrill,
at the groin of southern Europe,
if you will.

Certainly no shortage of hunters in France, always accidentally shooting each other so it's a distinct possibility.
In my experience, yes, some guests have the same longing for towels and bedlinen as zombies have for human flesh.

Back on the Star Trek theme, I recently found out that George Takei (Sulu) is gay. That might put him at risk of an AIDS-related illness.

BTW please don't anyone say "I knew he was gay - it's been common knowledge for the past 40 years". Just make allowance for me being a bit slow sometimes. :)

I don't think he's a huge AIDS risk, he's gay but he's not in the different club every night, different bloke when he does faction.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

He might be a high risk candidate though, as apparently you shag one chinese gay bloke and half an hour later you feel like shagging another one.........

I'll let myself out.......

Oh that was funny! <_<

Saw Takei on the William Shatner roast on Comedy Central last night. Takei and Nicholls were in attendance and looked quite healthy. The comedians had no qualms about ripping on Sulu being gay, and obviously, Takei didn't have a problem with it either. I think he's more at risk of dying of an age related illness rather than HIV/AIDS related illness.

Another Trek related individual worth considering is Ed Cassidy (b 4th May 1923) massive baldie about six and a half feet tall who made a notable guest appearance in the show and also has a toe hold on rock fame as the drummer with vastly under-rated Californian psychsters Spirit.

Still alive, which is more than can be said for Spirit's singer/guitarist Randy California.

Cassidy's health seems sound.........for an 83 year old with a few late nights and parties to his credit.

Well I never knew that Ed Cassidy appeared in Star Trek. Great band Spirit - saw them live in Bristol once. Randy California drowned. He was saving his son who had got into trouble surfing. That's about as noble and dignified a rock star death as I am aware of. Unless, of course, dear readers, you know better.

Scott la Rock could run him a close second, uninvolved in a gang dispute and sitting in a car outside the scene of a bitter row, he walked in to preach peace to the warring parties and took a fatal shooting for his efforts.

Re Ed Cassidy, trust me, he did. If I recall rightly he's in the episode where Abraham Lincoln (an actor, not the real guy) also turns up, but maybe too many recreational stimulants combined with cranking up early Spirit too loud have bent my memory.

Maybe Pooka, but I'd lay money that yer man appeared in one episode and I'm fairly sure it was the one I mentioned. He strolls around looking - well - big and bald but conceals a trick that he has the ability to mimic voices. So when two teams of four, good and evil, with both Kirk and Spock on the good side, are fighting to the death in some perverse version of Gladiators, his little skill lures others to their deaths.

Honest.

There must be a proper trekkie posting here who can verify all this.

Having an asteroid named after him should be enough compensation for Georgy boy. Or should that be an assteroid?

why, you little...

How sad are the boffins whose attempts at originality and humour extend to naming asteroids that only they'll ever see after actors from Specky Twat TV shows? Anyway, where's the Bill Shatner asteroid? Maybe they're saving that for the one that will smash into the earth and kill us all.
