But after TNG, I was expecting him to show up again. After he left with the Traveler, I sort of expected him to pop up in the other series. It would've been fun to see him on Voyager, for example. He could've shown up, shot Neelix, then left to collect a bounty. Many fans would've praised him and forgiven him for all prior annoyances instantly. :p

Instead though, it seems Wheaton went with "I'm ashamed of my past because people criticized my character." He still plays nerdy rolls all the time with overwhelming arrogance, but not the *one* roll that made him famous. That all makes me sad.

Plus he started a facebook account like a week ago. His first posts were all about how much he hated facebook. Instant unsubscribe for me. I'm mad at him. I won't talk to him until he apologizes.

Well if you counted the deleted scene from Nemesis, Wesley had returned and was at the wedding.

Hmm I don't blame him about the FB comments, I think FB should only exist for businesses only really, overall I hate its existance. But I meant Wheaton in RL face-to-face is fun to be around. I hope he goes to the TNG 25th Anv convention this year.

"For the sole purpose of seeing if “Sparks McGee” is already taken. For if it is not, I am going to make the man described as “Wesley Crusher, in a cowboy hat and muscle car. He also kills people.” That was a quote from me, five minutes ago. If it is…well…I’ve got ten gigs of a game I’m never going to play. At least it’s on Steam.

EDIT: It worked. Now I’m killing people with phaser rifles like…well, like Sparks would."


I don't know about you guys, but I think this is awesome news! Especially since Wil is such a huge gamer!

So if you guys run into Sparks McGee in the game, treat him right!
Hello there this is Ericis it possible that i could get me hes ingame full name and hes handle name please.

I totally missed that! Argh. So many deleted scenes that shouldn't have been....

Anyway, I feel like a jerk now. I just had that rant about him and he just shared a picture that EJ's sister drew. (EJ used to be a regular in these forums.)

Except that's not Wil. Wil quoted that from some guy named Draxion, who... according to his bio:

I'm a writer, aspiring cosplayer, aspiring artist, bibliophibian, and teenage geek.
Wil's actual statement (under the quoted text describing Draxion's installation of STO and creation of Sparks McGee" was:

Heh, I'd be too nervous to write her anyway. I break out in a sweat any time I talk to a girl my age.
