Here’s a confession from me right now:

I wish Lal would’ve grabbed someone other than Riker when she first decided to experiment with kissing. Like Picard. OR BARCLAY.

how have i never seen this episode? I could swear (until i saw this picture) that I had seen every episode of every star…

WATCH IT! The episode is Qpid, S4E20. :D

Anonymous sent: NONONONONO! WE CANNOT HAVE A TNG REMAKE! THEY ALREADY RUINED TOS, AND I CAN'T HAVE THEM RUINING MY WIFE LIKE MY LOVER!

I just envisioned everyone responsible for the TOS remakes being made to sit in a corner and think about what they’ve done while the Rikers stare at them with judgement in their eyes.

John De Lancie was a perfect Q. If anyone else played Q, I’d probably pick Neil Patrick Harris? Like I said, De Lancie is too perfect

Same! I love John.

For some reason, I thought of Kevin Spacey as Q. I think he would bring just the right amount of hilarity and sass.

after the TOS reboot I’d never want to see a TNG reboot, because yikes did not care for them, but as for casting… maybe Gemma Arterton as Troi.

Ooh, I like this idea!

Anonymous sent: Do you want a reboot of TNG? And if so, any cast ideas?

Hm. This is a question I’ve asked myself before and I’m not very good at answering it, unfortunately.

I don’t think it would be wise to do a remake of the series. It just seems… too soon for a remake, I guess? TNG isn’t that old. The characters are still too alive in my mind to see them reincarnated.

I think a TNG movie would be more likely to happen, considering the success of the TOS remakes. I’m a huge Tom Hiddleston fan and I would be thrilled to see him take on Data’s role. He’s such an emotional actor, so I think playing an android would be an interesting challenge for him.

Perhaps Rooney Mara as Ro?

I can’t see anyone other than Patrick Stewart as Picard. Or anyone but Gates McFadden as Bev… or anyone other than Michael Dorn as Worf.

THE CAST IS ALREADY SO CEMENTED IN MY BRAIN.

I’ll let you know if I think of any others.

Do you guys have any recasting picks you’d like to share?

Anonymous sent: I can't tell you enough how I love this blog! I love Data and this blog is super duper great for that! I don't think there are other blogs that love Data as much as this one! ♥

Wow, thanks! There haven’t been as many Data confessions lately as there used to be, but he’s still definitely a fan favorite. There are quite a few Data-centric blogs who submit to this one, so they deserve more credit than I do!

:D

Anonymous sent: Hi, I know this is not the ideal place for this, but you are the only active TNG blog I know, and everybody seems so enthusiastic and nice, so I thought I'll try! The thing is, I see holiday fan fests popping out of the ground everywhere (you know, fic/art exchanges, like secret santa in summer) and I'd LOVE to have something similar for TNG. Would anybody be willing to participate/organize it? Thanks for your time! <3

Aw, thank you for this message.

I’m afraid I don’t have the spare time to organize an event like that right now, but I’m happy to promote the idea! This fandom is hilarious and clever as hell, so I’m sure an exchange of some sort would be tons of fun.
