I think Yaphet Kotto would have been ace as Picard,

Agreed.  Kotto is a great actor.  However, it's pretty hard to imagine anyone else playing Picard. 

I actually shook hands with Picard.  He was going into a restaurant during the Toronto film festival about 10 years ago.  Me and some friends were leaving a bar, so I was drunk enough to aproach him.  In a slur "Oh my God, Patrick Stewart, I love you!" and extended my hand, which he shook.  That really made my day.  Based on that, I can say that he is very friendly and approachable, he was smiling and everything!

He just figured that if he kept smiling at the crazy drunk guy maybe he would go away with out beating him up and taking his wallet.

Yeah, probably.

The guy who did those 90 minute long Star Wars reviews has gotten around to doing Star Trek 2009.   He's done a bunch of the other TNG movies as well, so enjoy them here:

I don't find the character he plays particularly interesting, but he makes a lot of good points  His skewering of the Star Wars prequels were kinda magical.

Yes the character begins to grate a little after a while I'm finding but the analysis is generally really good.

It's easy to associate Klingons with opera, but what about the other races?

I suspect humans are light jazz, with the very occasional stray into big band territory and Vulcans are European industrial trance music from the 70s - they're Kraftwerk, basically.

No no, in the correct form that should be:

She's a model and she's looking good
Watch out Mr. Spock!

I see Vulcans more as Phillip Glass type shit.

Klingons are also skilled at death metal, ask Stovokor.

Klingons seem like they'd be into cheesy epic metal like Ensiferum and Dragonforce.

    • Yep, I have a deviantART gallery. But it's pretty cheerful drawings-- no angsty poems or black-and-white photos of wooden chairs.

I've gotten really into Star Trek over the last year or so. When I was a kid my brother always watched it, but I guess I just had different interests at the time. I can't really say I was too YOUNG for it, because I had some friends my same age who liked it too.

I liked the MOVIES, but I just had a hard time sitting down and watching all the episodes of the TV shows. I'd catch a few here and there. But I finally got around to seriously watching them. I'm in about the middle of season 4 of TNG, and season 2 of DS9.

And for some reason I picked Enterprise to watch before that, and it's probably one of the reasons I have a more favorable opinion of it than a lot of other fans. If it stepped on the toes of continuity, I wouldn't have known.
I used to have an image here, but Photobucket got cheap about remote linking. I guess I'll have to think of something witty instead. Which I will. Later. It caught me by surprise, in all honesty. It's hard to be clever on command, I mean, YOU try it. Be funny: NOW! See, tough. So, gimme a bit, 'kay?
