Two Star Trek actors recently took the opportunity to express their enthusiasm for their work to online fans.

Wil Wheaton (Wesley Crusher), who will be making a cameo appearance in 'Star Trek: Nemesis' (story), posted his thoughts on the film's script at his official website.

"I read the script for Star Trek X last night. [...] It's easily, far and away, the best Trek movie since maybe 'Wrath of Khan.' Certainly the best TNG movie. I am so excited to be in this movie, I can't even begin to describe it.

"I talked to Brent Spiner yesterday, and he told me how excited they are that I'm going to be working with them. [...] I am having my final costume fitting tonight, and I work Wednesday and Thursday."

One of the newest Trek stars, Enterprise's Dominic Keating (Malcolm Reed), recently posted at his official site to thank fans for their support.

"Hi you fabulous guys! Sorry not to have acknowledged all your listings sooner but things got very busy for Malcolm on board the Enterprise," he wrote. "So that's good news. Sadly you'll have to wait 'till the New Year to see quite a bit more of him but at last it would seem that the powers that be are turning around and taking a closer look at the enigmatic Brit.

"As an actor it's been a joy and very rewarding. I love going to work. I am truly blessed and very grateful. And not least for all your fantastic support and praise for the job I am fortunate enough to be doing. In spite of the fact that my character was not getting much of the spotlight initially you still noticed the performance and that was very, very encouraging. Especially at the beginning of such an epic journey - for me, not Malcolm, that is! So, thank-you all and if I don't get to post before - have a wonderfully Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
