Isn't Chris Doohan dead? Isn't this false advertising? James Rolfe looks like a right wrong 'un. Kick him for me.

No no, you're thinking of his father, James Doohan aka Scotty.

He's providing his voice for Star Trek Continues, a web-series based on the original series.

You're thinking James Doohan, Chris's Father.. Chris has worked on many Star Trek projects including having a spot on the recent movies. Before making false claims you should know your information ;)

That has already been established. You should check other replies before trying to look like a smart arse. ;)

Erm...Actually BC isn't the only one in the wrong here. Screamer84 made the wrong comment first, BC just responded in kind (it's his trademark), so Jedi your wrong to jump in without seeing the true situation.

In short BC had already seen he was mistaken and it was fixed. Screamer84 didn't have to say anything to the comment.

On topic, it would be great to see more events like these in the UK, closest we get are the collectomanias, but they can be really expensive to get in to and travel to.

Oh, well I thought I was a member of an English speaking message board but going off your post I think I must be mistaken?
