It’s time again for another episode of Shagbottom Theater!
June is a historically cool month full of important dates. Did you know that in 1966, the United States landed the Surveyor 1 on the moon? So, for me, and Fionn as well, this month brings thoughts of space exploration. Is there any more iconic science fiction series about this than Star Trek? No. There isn’t.
Fionn and I share a favorite Captain. I know. You’d think he’d love Kirk, which he does, but not as much as he adores his fellow thespian’s (Sir Patrick Stewart) portrayal of the important Star Trek role: Jean Luc Picard. Fionn thinks the world of Sir Patrick Stewart. The actor is a huge advocate for dog rescue (Fionn is a rescue dog) and also advocates for domestic abuse survivors. These issues are dear to both of us, and we are proud to call Sir Patrick a comrade in this movements. Taking on the role of Fionn Luc filled our furry guy’s heart with joy.
Check out Fionn donning the red uniform as he roles incredible lines from TNG. This outtake was done during rehearsals as Fionn Luc for the stage-sode he will be running through June. Enjoy!
(I think this is going to be a science fiction year for sure!)
Fionn-Luc Picard: Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we’ve lived. After all Number One, we’re only mortal.
You can watch Star Trek: Picard on Paramount+.
