I never ever considered myself a sci fi geek, but the more I talk about it with people I’ve worked with, I think I am!
My mum watched Star Trek a lot and I watched it growing up so I know a lot about it. I worked with Kate Mulgrew recently, she played Captain Kathryn Janeway, the only female captain on Voyager, and I was so starstruck - that was when I realised I am actually a nerd.
I went to the dubbing of one of the Star Trek films - I went to listen to the music being recorded by the orchestra, it was the coolest thing ever. OK, yes, I’m definitely a nerd!
That last post reminded us of one of our favorite quotes from Doctor Who guest star alumnus (Series 1: The Long Game), Simon Pegg:
“Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.”
Here’s my wife’s tattoo. The Doctor’s Name :)
