Having stumbled across this snippet on Treknews of an interview with Simon Pegg with the New York Daily News, we are pleased to learn that Simon Pegg has been referring to Memory Alpha whilst writing for Star Trek: Beyond.
We know that Pegg is a self confessed fan, so why do we love that he is browsing our favourite Trek site? For Borg level perfection, obviously! We like our references to be tidy and laser scalpel sharp.
It’s also a good indication that he respects the franchise and us nit-picky fans, that he wants to deliver it well. Either that or he went to google a spelling (maybe Qo’noS!? – ouch!) and then got stuck in the most horrendous wiki-loop ever.
Btw, does anyone else play this game on Memory Alpha? Pick two random and seemingly unconnected aspects of Star Trek and try to link to them in as few moves as possible. So Star Trek on the page Qo’noS and get to Tricorder clicking only hyperlinks within each entries. How many pages does it take you?
