Catching Up With Brent Spiner
Ol’ Yellow Eyes is back, sort of. It’s been
a long time since Brent Spiner last played Data, but he’ll have some
fun tweaking his Star Trek: The Next
Generation connection when he
guest stars – along with Wil Wheaton, David Gerrold and Dorothy Fontana
– on this Thursday’s episode of Big Bang Theory, entitled “The Russian
Rocket Reaction.” StarTrek.com figured now would be the perfect time to
catch up with Spiner, who subsequently took to the phone to talk about
Big Bang Theory, discuss his Web series Fresh Hell – in which he plays
a fictional Brent Spiner whose career has been ruined by an undisclosed
event called “the incident” -- and to look back at his years in the Star Trek universe.
Below is part one of our two-part interview, and
check back tomorrow for part two.

starship for each class.
Seth MacFarlane Wants to Reboot Star Trek TV Series, Talks Flintstones and Family Guy
Love him or hate him, there’s no denying
things are looking up for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. His
series continues to be a hit in its tenth season, his feature film Ted
is set to hit next year, he’s updating the ’80s PBS series Cosmos: A
Space-Time Odyssey, and earlier this year, he finally won the rights to
reboot The Flintstones for film and television. Now he’s kinda-sorta
got his eye on bringing back another classic property: Star Trek.
