I don't want to dredge up old arguments, but something happened today that really surprised me. I'm friends with Chris Doohan on Facebook, we've never met of course, so I don't pretend that we have any type of relationship other than a few little conversations here and there. Anyhow, he posted a vignette from Star Trek Continues today, which I watched (just to see his version of Scotty).
Of course, everyone who replied was all agog, and yeah, it was good, especially Chris' part. My comment was short and simple, just "Chris, I love your performance, but I'm sorry, the more I see of Vic Mignogna as Kirk, the less I like." Nothing untoward or offensive, I would've thought. Just a simple statement of the truth, of my opinion. Within five minutes, after receiving a couple of "likes," my comment was deleted. And the unabashed adoration continues.
Honestly, I was expecting much better from Chris Doohan. I wasn't being mean spirited, but it seems as though Star Trek Continues cannot suffer any criticism at all, no matter how mild. That seems perfectly in line with (my perception of) Vic Mignogna's ego; it's a real shame that Chris Doohan seems to have imbibed his kool-aid.
