Jamie Bamber to Appear in "Star Trek Continues"
Taking a break from freeing children's toys from their packaging strongholds in order to wrap them (Happy Holidays Everyone! :), I took a quick peak at my Twitter freed to see a series of tweets regarding Jamie's latest project. He was barely out of scrubs and now he's in a space suit!



I really hope he has his Christmas shopping done if he's working this weekend. Kerry said this was her last day. :)

OK, I keep digressing. So, piecing together what I could, the project is Star Trek Continues, a web series based on the original Star Trek series which aims to continue the show's original five year voyage.....that was cut short be NBC. ;)

According to Chris White, ChrisWhiteHQ, one of the people involved in the production, Jamie was at work today on the series first full length episode, "PILGRIM OF ETERNITY". I'm assuming Jamie's involvement will be limited to one webisode (especially given how he looks in some of the photos below) since he's not listed amongst the series cast. Oh, hey there Mythbusters Grant Imahara as Mr. Sulu! Awww, and Chris Doohan is stepping into his dad's shoes for Scotty.

For more information (I hope!) you can also follow on Twitter, TrekContinues and actor (Captain Kirk) / director, Vic Mignogna vicmignogna.

Hmmmm, he's wearing one of the space suits from "The Tholian Web" (as seen here). I have no idea what that means, but it's very cool.

Hee! OK, we may have to rely on your expert knowledge once more information becomes available. ;D While I've seen every episode of the original Trek, I must confess I'm more of a Next Gen fan.

My very first fandom (back when I was a pre-teen) was Star Trek (TOS). I'm kind of rusty on some things after too many decades, I still remember some of the more vital things. So sure, if I can help in any way, I will.

(Now Jamie needs to get his arse on Doctor Who so he can have the trifecta of my fave rave science fiction shows. ;))

zegeekgirl commented to me how Jamie now has a connection to both Star Trek and Star Wars, which made me start thinking of what other classic sci-fi he had yet to be part of. Doctor Who would definitely be next on the list!

Given that he was born/raised in the UK in the 70s, he definitely NEEDS to be on the show at least once. Especially since he worked with a former Doctor (Peter Davison) and a former Companion (Freema Agyeman) on L&O:UK (and both Bill Paterson and Bradley Walsh were both on the show in recent years etc).

I agree with his personal assessment that he wouldn't make a very good Doctor, but he should be on there somehow!

Two former Doctors, Paul McGann is Eight.

If it is during the Moffatt run then I demand it be another Neil Gaiman episode. ;)

Neil did just write another episode, but it's about Cybermen, and has already wrapped.
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: December 26th, 2012 08:09 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Oh, I know. Basically, I'd prefer it if he took over as showrunner, but I know it's something he'd never be interested in doing. One episode per series is a gift though. ;)
ragdoll From: ragdoll Date: December 26th, 2012 10:12 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
I don't think Neil has the time or the patience to be a showrunner. My own almost-logical hope is Toby Whithouse, although he's prolly too busy with Being Human (UK) to take on DW too. Not that the Moff is leaving any time soon...

Hottest. Redshirt. EVER. ;)

Ya know, I hadn't even thought of the red shirt thing. It was only a matter of time, wasn't it? ;p
ragdoll From: ragdoll Date: December 25th, 2012 12:45 am (UTC) (Link Me)
We don't know if he's wearing a red shirt. Maybe it's blue or gold...he could survive or get taken away by a hot alien babe in a mini skirt.
zegeekgirl From: zegeekgirl Date: December 26th, 2012 08:10 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
I meant "red shirt" in the theoretical sense. ;) And no, we don't know that for sure either although smashed helmets are generally not a good sign. (Surprise us, webbyseries...)
ragdoll From: ragdoll Date: December 26th, 2012 10:10 pm (UTC) (Link Me)
Oh, I know. I was just being silly and hoping maybe this role won't end like the majority of his characters' roles. XD

Yes, surprise us webbyseries! Capt. Kirk is good for saving his people!

plus I'm an idiot and somehow missed the broken helmet in the first picture...
