Its 9:00 LA time 11 AM here in Nashville when I decide to pluck down 7 dollars on StarTrek.com/Creation Events/TVoop live streaming event of the Aliens of DS 9 which was to start in 15 minutes of my payment at 11:15 Central and 9:15 Western.
The streaming started with a camera shot of one of the big screens that flank each side of the stage which showed a bunch of clips from DS 9 to music. Then the camera panned the stage which showed the empty seats of where the actors would sit. One by one they were introduced . First the lovely Nicole de Boer who play Ezri Dax, then there was the equally lovely Chase Masterson (Leeta),Jeffery Combs , who played a slew of Star Trek characters but was best know as Weyoun. Casey Biggs (Damar), and Vaughn Armstrong(Seskai), and finishing off with Armin Shimerman and Max Grodénchik better known as Quark and Rom.The show started with Jeffery combs interrupting for brief moment to announce with a lot of laughter from the audience that he found someones very expensive pass at the bar. Then moved on to questions. One of them being on how did Armin and Max end up in their roles. I wish I could remember the exact words because it was pretty interesting. I guess the next time I will remember to at least plop a recorder next to my computer so I can do some play backs. But the gist of it was that Armin and Max were up for the same role . That role being Quark and the story told was that Max thought he blew his lines when it was announced that he had the second reading for the role at that point he went out to sulk and that is when he met Armin who pointed out that he felt he blew his lines too but felt that it was between them two any way because they were shortest. You know the result of the matter Armin got the role of Quark and Max became Rom.
