Star Trek actress Kate Mulgrew denies willing involvement in geocentrism documentary
National Post ^ | April 9, 2014 | Staff

Posted on 04/09/2014 8:46:49 AM PDT by Loyalist

As Star Trek: Voyager Captain Kathryn Janeway, Kate Mulgrew knew her way around a solar system or two. So there was a certain irony to the actress’ voiceover work in the upcoming documentary The Principle, which focuses on the notion of geocentrism: the idea that the sun revolves around the Earth.

But Mulgrew has dispelled the notion that she buys into the documentary’s central premise, writing in a post on her Facebook page that she is “not a geocentrist, nor am I in any way a proponent of geocentrism.”

“I was a voice for hire, and a misinformed one, at that,” Mulgrew clarifies in the post about her involvement with the documentary, directed by Catholic author and theologian Robert Sungenis. “I apologize for any confusion that my voice on this trailer may have caused.”

It would be disingenuous to call Robert Sungenis a Catholic theologian any more than to call Fred Phelps a Baptist minister.

Sungenis is an embarrassment even among traditionalist Catholics, and not just for promoting this crackpot theory which has nothing do to with all things necessary for salvation.

In other words, Sungenis is no sun genius...

The reason geocentrism was the rule for so long is because the celestial math works reasonably well.

It's all relative.

I think Ms. Mulligrew is not making enough on Star Trek conventions, and just needed a gig, no matter how ridiculous.

Star Trek actress Kate Mulgrew denies willing involvement in geocentrism documentary: ‘I was a voice for hire’.

Not much of an out, Kate my dear. You and I have both walked out of good-paying sessions when we learned the script wasn't inline enough with our personal beliefs. 'Course, I never got work at THAT studio ever again. Turns out YOU really were just a voice for hire the same way others sell usage of their body parts.

Science that does not glorify the One through whom God made the universe, and who sustains all things by his powerful word, is the province of doomed fools!

The antichrist spirit energizes the vast majority of (mad) scientists, and they manifest it by denying God due glory for the work of HIS hands.

Jesus is the door, the gate, the very center of all creation. Science could revel in this mystery, but pride prevents it!

As a musician I'm the same way. Just fingers for hire. Country? Rap? Bluegrass? Inaugural ball? Disco? ACT-Up?Tea Party? Sure. How many Bennies you talkin, cause the axe doesn't come out of the case unless I'm getting paid.

Just tell me “when, where and (most importantly) how much$.

I just use different body parts than other gigolos.

I wonder how many people ever actually believed in a flat earth? If you stand on the beach, you can see the curve of the earth. If you stand on the same beach, or on a plain, you can see ships/people/wagons/whatever making their way up from the horizon.

People seem to have the idea that generations before ours were stone cold stupid, and of course, they weren't.

I’ve been a “voice for hire.” I always called it “prostituting my voice,” and I never much cared what they did with the work product because they paid for it. If I didn’t like what they wanted me to say, they got somebody else and payed them instead. That’s what professionals do.

In her case, they got her to do the voice work because of her earlier work and presumed fame. Meh. I noticed the “Captains” of all the Star Trek shows did voice-over work later in life. I still hear Patrick Stewart on commercials a lot, he has a distinctive voice.

The Earth IS flat, and the sun DOES revolve around the Earth. And holding the Earth up, is a turtle. Under that, is another turtle. And so on.

Anyone who believes otherwise is just plain weird.

A friend of mine who used to do radio "prostituted" her voice for a rather humiliating ad for a hemorrhoid treatment center.

I told her "I sure hope you were very well-paid for that one!" She assures me she was.

A solar-centric model has nothing to do with reality either, because the Sun is not the center of the universe either.

Either model works, though one is more general than the other.

Godel's incompleteness theorem tells us that no model can possibly reflect reality perfectly.

All models are imperfect.

Her last job didn't go so well in the delta quadrant....

I heard she got to admiral by Hacking Picards account at Starfleet by transferring all promotions to picard to her file.

She did this before she got stranded and this is why in the last TNG she was an Admiral and picard was still captain...

Nah, you don't promote someone who locked horns with command as often as Picard did. (Plus, you know the whole situation with his chief medical officer had to leave a black mark on his fitness report.)

Kirk got to be Admiral because it was a different era that called for cowboy diplomacy. Besides, it was either that or shoot him, and Starfleet didn't have the stomach for the latter.

Picard did not want the promotion to Admiral... Not his thing...

But who knows, if Paramount does a movie post nemesis, you may see or hear mentioned an Admiral Picard.

Some of the Trek novels hint at such a thing, but these are not official canon.

Geocentrism makes much more sense than anything coming out of the Obamadork administration.

However, since the math would never work, Krugdork would love it.

I liked the premise of Voyager. Not my favorite captain, but I’m addicted to trek.

The time tavel was a good add to the story.

I’m ready for another one on TV and the next movie.

Make it so!

You may have missed my whole point: I NEVER indicated I held anything against honest voicework; I did it for many years. I DID walk out of a particular session. I DID get un-listed for a while. I DID care what was done with my voice. My voice is ME! Away with your concept of professionalism! There were always PLENTY like you out there who WERE FOR HIRE REGARDLESS THE MESSAGE, and still are! Yes, I moved away from voicework and did something different -- and have continued to veer away from thinking like yours.
