Enterprise star Connor Trinneer ('Trip' Tucker) yesterday told Minneapolis fans an appearance by the Romulans on his show shouldn't be counted out.
"I wouldn't be surprised," Trinneer said at Creation's Grand Slam on Tour convention in Minneapolis (via the Star Trek Galactic Newsletter). The actor had been asked whether several familiar alien races from Star Trek would be appearing on Enterprise, and although he had few specific details, Trinneer mentioned the possibility of an Romulan appearance and added we would be seeing species such as the Andorians again.
Another topic Trinneer was asked about was 'Star Trek: Nemesis,' the next TNG film. Trinneer admitted he knew little about the movie, except that it would also be the last TNG film. However, this was contradicted earlier at the con by Star Trek archivist Richard Arnold, who explained that for every film the producers say it may be the final movie of the series, but that until the movie series stops being profitable fans will see more installments.
The final Trek celebrity appearing on stage Saturday was Linda Park (Hoshi Sato), who spoke to fans about what her own character would be doing next season. Park promised Sato would be getting a little more action, and would also be getting her "space feet" in season two.
Creation's Minneapolis convention is a three-day event that kicked off this Friday with appearances by Original Series stars Walter Koenig (Pavel Chekov), George Takei (Hikaru Sulu) and Nichelle Nichols (Uhura). Today the convention will conclude with a performance by William Shatner (James T. Kirk) and Leonard Nimoy (Spock).
A detailed report from the Minneapolis convention will be posted at the Star Trek Galactic Newsletter on Wednesday.
