    Ok, ok, I admit that Wheaton is much cooler now than back when he was a kid, but--
    All I can say is: if this is true, Braga needs to lay down the crack pipe, and fast... [​IMG]

    I do not have any idea what to make of this. But I doubt it's an April Fool's joke. Wheaton is going to be in Nemesis--and logical coherency has never been Trek's strongest asset. So, it makes weird sense from a ratings and income-generating standpoint.

    Look, Kate Mulgrew is going to be in Nemesis, too. Not all bad memories completely fade.

    But Wheaton does point out that the Wesley of "First Duty" ilk is the one returning. Wonder if The Traveler will be on hand, too?

    Definitely April Fool's. Wil knows how up in arms that would make a lot of people... personally I think it's hilarious.

    Now that he is an adult (and no longer an irritating weasel), he's a welcome addition to the show IMO. The time travel concept was really lacking any sort of cohesion for me - but this may pull it together beautfully. Good move. I'm for it.

    I say they do one episode with him before they sign a multi-episode contract. This is a sink or swim situation, and I have reasons to believe either could happen.

    That is, if its true.

    I'm sure it's a joke. Wil has a great sense of humor and knows this will rile up the fanboys.

    How can you not help but like this guy.
    He has proven to have a great sense of humour.
    Take this quote "All the idiots who thought it was a really good idea to fill my inbox with "Wesley is gonna ruin Enterprise" crap should get a life, and direct any further comments to the nearest brick wall."
    woooo!

    Personally, I don't mind the idea since I never had anything against the Crusher Kid. Call it stupid, but when I Was younger, I always liked the idea of the kid saving the day [​IMG]. Now I find it rather corny, but back then, give me a break..
    As far as the idea goes, too bad it isn't true. If the bad guys have someone coordinating the temporal cold war in the future, why shouldn't the good guys have someone as well? My guess will be that time will re-write itself when this series ends, and none of this stuff will have happend so it will all be moot anyway [​IMG].
