What character in your favorite fandom do you most identify with?|
My favorite fandom is Star Trek, the original series, followed probably by Voyager and Deep Space Nine. My all time favorite character who I identify with is Spock. He came into my life at an impressionable age, I suppose - late teens - and I felt his pain as my own. Spock is an outsider. He doesn’t fit in with Vulcan society or that of Earth. Plus, he’s an iconic character - loyal, honest, and willing to die for what he believes in.
My most favourite creator?
Now, that’s a hard one to answer. There’s so many books that I’ve enjoyed and TV shows and movies. My favourite authors would include Ursula LeGuin and C.J. Cherryh, along with A.C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov. The artists I admire are mainly from this era like Frank Frazetta, who paints far off worlds and alien people. Science fiction in all its many forms has been part of my life since I was ten or so. I like the strange and otherworldly. TV shows would have to include Star Trek, of course, but also Doctor Who and the two Stargate series. Although I’m addicted to Lost right now.
What was your first fannish creation?
My first fannish creation that I can remember was Avellach, but I think I was born with a pen in my hand. I’ve always loved to write and to draw. From a very early age I can recall telling stories in my head.
What talent would you like to have that you don’t have?
LOL! Again, there’s so many things I’d love to be able to do! But I think I’m a perfectionist. If I could play an instrument or dance I’d have to be top notch at it.
What’s something no one would guess about you?
I doubt anyone would guess that as a little girl I wanted to be a ballerina. I’d only seen ballet on the television. But the first time I saw a ballet at the theatre it was such a disappointment. Though the dancers were still graceful and very skilled I’d never realized how much noise they made. All I heard was the thump, thump, thump as they bounced about the stage. Another dream dashed.

Bob Orci's Star Trek 3, which undoubtedly won't be called Star Trek 3 and probably shouldn't even be called Star Trek 3 colloquially, is expected to arrive in 2016, the year of the original show's 50th anniversary. This means that production will get underway in the new year, and indeed, that's what the cast are expecting.
Right now, there aren't many hard and fast facts about what this third film will entail, though I've been lead to believe that you can safely expect Klingons, and more Klingons than any other film in this new cycle of pictures. Badass Digest have scored another altogether more specific insight into plans for the film.
While it will depend on the complicity of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy for the plan to come to fruition, the screenplay apparently features a sequence with both Old Captain Kirk and Old Mr. Spock that will mark their first in-canon scene together since 1991.
A cameo for Shatner was reportedly dropped from JJ Abrams' 2009 movie, but Nimoy did appear and he has since appeared in Into Darkness too. Surely at some point the new films would be expected to jettison the original cast training wheels and just try to trundle along by themselves, but this being for the 50th anniversary, and with Shatner and Nimoy no doubt closer to the end of their careers than even the mid-point, it seems fair that Orci might try to seize the opportunity.
So, c'mon Shatner. Say yes.
