Every time I read an obit like this it makes me sad that they tried to close down the Motion Picture Home.
And this is a much better headline for this story.

RIP Trelane. Way better character than Koloth, even if Koloth did recur.

Ah, my dear Captain Koloth.

We do not discuss it with outsiders.

Come along Trelane....


But I don't want to!!!

RIP Trelane. You were fabulous.

And he was a better omnipotent that Q ever was.

Bathia_Mapes: We do not discuss it with outsiders.


Yes. The "Kyle Reese Maneuver". Better to leave it unsaid, either sue to secrecy or the character's ignorance, than to try to explain the unworkable with technobabble and doubletalk. They audience doesn't have to know how something works, just that it does.

He was from Newark, NJ.

My homie.

I will pour out a little from my next Romulan Ale. Peace out.

If you read the Next Gen books, it turns out that he is Q... and that Q is his baby-daddy!

It's not canon but in the ST novel Q Squared, Trelane was a baby Q who was being babysat by "our" Q. Of course, not being very responsible, Q lost track of Trelane which led to the incidents in "Squire of Gothos"

Don't blame me. I voted for Kang in my deadpool.

Bathia_Mapes: DS9/Trials and Tribble-ations


No, Bathia, that was Blood Oath! Where they stormed The Albino's fortress. I know you know that but it's early. Read all about their quest against The Albino in Forged in Fire. (new window)
 
2011-04-30 10:14:12 AM  
I thought he died 5 years ago

John Colicos- Kor- died about ten years ago.

He should have died with honor and many enemies laying at his feet.
 
2011-04-30 01:12:27 PM  
That's two of the three old Klingon captains down.

Alphax: That's two of the three old Klingon captains down.


Or three of four if you count Mark Lenard, even though he didn't play a Klingon until the first movie.

Licensed fan fic? No.

Careful. Most people who have read the books will react VERY negatively if you compare Peter David to a fan fic writer.

irving47: Most people who have read the books will react VERY negatively if you compare Peter David to a fan fic writer


Although, let's be honest: it's not entirely inaccurate. And that carries over to his non-licensed writing too. It all feels like fanfic, largely because he wedges in references to nerdy pop-culture.

Peter David is Joss Wheden?

Was interesting. In the extended universe series, Q Squared. It was determined that Trelane was the son of Q who eventually went out of control.

I'm really good with trivia but have ZERO recollection of this guy.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: RIP Trelane


I've always wondered if Trelane was a Q (or at least Roddenberry's first attempt to create one)?

The All-Powerful Atheismo: Time to haul him away AS garbage


That is pure awesome, though it was Kolath's second in command who said that. Right before Scotty, Chekov, O'Brian, Beshers, Odo and Worf brawled with some failed Genically enhanced Klingons.
