Yes, I was a Trekkie [Memories of the Future]

Memories of the Future - Wil Wheaton

Memories of the Future – Wil Wheaton

[Can you even say, that you were a Trekkie? Does it ever leave you?]

These past days I have been listening to Wil Wheaton’s podcasts that accompany his wonderful Memories of the Future book. He has written his view on Star Trek: The Next Generation is enlighting and endearing. It’s bringing back memories for me too, and I hope he will continue with the rest of Seaons One and all the other seasons (book volume one covers the first 13 episodes of Season One).

As I was listening to Wheaton’s podcast of Where No One Has Gone Before, I heard him mention the director by name, Rob Bowman. A name I recognized from one of the write ups of the ABC tv show Castle.

The world of tv is so small! Especially as tonight I saw a link in my twitter feed of an interview of Rob Bowman where he explains what it was like to work on that TNG episode.

It’s great to hear/read about the two experiences from completely different angles.
