Good Point: 15 November 2007

Tom Morello, whose guitar playing skills I’ve expressed appreciation for in the past, and I’ve mentioned his role in Guitar Hero III, but today I found out something much, much deeper and darker.

He’s a Trekkie.

In 1998, Morello – a die-hard Trekkie – contacted Star Trek producer Rick Berman and asked to have a cameo in Star Trek: Insurrection. Berman agreed, as his son was a fan of Rage Against the Machine. Despite four to five hours of make-up and the high temperature in which they were working (they were filming in the desert), Morello states that he “was on cloud nine because I got to talk to Jean-Luc Picard” (referring, of course, to actor Patrick Stewart).

Because his Son’a character could barely be seen, however, Morello was asked to appear on an episode of Voyager, this time as a Human Starfleet officer.

Sure enough.
