Set Course for the Vaudeville System!

Here’s a cute little outtake

uncharacteristic soft-shoe number. It’s an “easter egg” from Star Trek: The Next Generation’s 5th season DVD set.

The next time I see two Star Trek geeks arguing about which is better — the original series or TNG — I’d force to listen to William Shatner do Rocket Man, and Stewart doing this… Jean Luc rules! End of discussion. Move along.

that’s super cute.

i like the part at the end where he almost falls into the chair.

Strange but true: At one of ST:TNG’s story pitching sessions by non-staff writers, there was one writer who actually pitched a proposal for an all-singing, all-dancing episode.

The writer even had a semi-logical rationale for the story. But the producers took a pass on the idea.


Come to think of it, I’m pretty sure that was the last time I got asked in to pitch ideas….

— Bruce A.


I love him.

He may have been in one too many musicals as a schoolboy.


Of course, I’m sure you’ve seen/heard Brent Spinner’s cd “Old Yelloweyes Is Back”

It’s all showtunes.


I wonder what time the Nathan Lane retrospective on A&E starts?…

Hey man, Brent Spiner has done SONDHEIM. Freaked me the hell out when I realised it was Data with the bad German accent on the Sunday in the Park With George CD.

I will not rest until I see Michael “Worf” Dorn performing Motorhead’s Ace of Spades in full Klingon uniform, especially the “That’s the way I like it baby, I don’t wanna live forever!” line.

Joey – that is genius. Oh man, what an image, I’d be in awe. Although I suspect Worf’s performance will be somewhat stiffer.

Now that I think about it, Worf would make a good Gene Simmons. You can just imagine that Klingon tongue sliding up and down his Battleth (sp?).
