The amazingly talented, and Life After Trek-er, Armin Shimerman will be taking on the role of Ross in The Antaeus Company's production of "Macbeth". As you may know, Ross is Macbeth's cousin and a Scottish Nobleman in the Bard's tale of treachery, murder, & mysticism. Like other Antaeus Company productions, Armin will be partnering the role with John Sloan. As an added note, Tessa Auberjonois (daughter of fellow DS9'er Rene Auberjonois) will be playing Lady M. in the production.
Paramount Pictures & Namco Bandai just announced, at E3, that The Gorn will be the main villain in a new video game based on the Star Trek JJ-verse. According to the press release; the storyline will pick up after the 2009 Star Trek film and will put players in the shoes of Captain James T.

The first U.S. Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th anniversary reunion is happening right in our own backyard, Austin Texas.

Commander Geordi La Forge), Michael Dorn (Lieutenant Worf), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi), Brent Spiner (Lt. Commander Data) and Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher). Dang!

After a whirlwind of a weekend, we here at Subspace Communique can look back on a fantastically fun and entertaining time at Houston's Comicpalooza. We spent the full three days traipsing the halls of the George R. Brown convention center in downtown Houston and learned a few things about ourselves and about a few guest stars. First off, Richard Hatch loves ribs... We saw the Battlestar Galactica star enjoying (more than once) some of the fine barbecue served in the vender area. Hey, I'm not pointing fingers here, I had my fair share too. Secondly, George Takei still smells fantastic. I passed Mr. Sulu, once again, and he smelled like a fresh spring day. Lastly, we learned that you should never go with a Jaffa to a second location... I'll just leave that there.

LeVar Burton, what can we say? He's a class act even when faced with TMZ cameras after a small fender-bender involving a police car. According to TMZ, LeVar was being pulled over for a moving violation yesterday when he was rear-ended by a patrol car. Good news is that no one got hurt and LeVar wasn't cited for the moving violation.
