It seems that Star Trek: Voyager’s Kate Mulgrew – Captain Kathryn Janeway in the show, is causing a furore around the internet at the moment.
Mulgrew is narrating a new documentary telling us that everything we know about science is wrong, and in particular, that the Sun orbits the Earth, a theory disproved a long time ago by Galileo.
From what I have seen, or heard in this case, Mulgrew only speaks one line at the beginning of the documentary’s trailer, entitled “The Principle”.
The issue among the science community, and by large, the Star Trek community in the case of Mulgrew, is that somehow she has sold out on narrating a documentary that promotes ideas that have been scientifically dis proven a long time ago, and that her portrayal of a Starfleet Captain, and one that continually spoke of being a scientist above all else, was somehow Mulgrew’s own personal opinion.
So far, we have heard nothing on this trailer that shows in any detail which side of the fence Mulgrew sits.
She has merely taken a voice over job, to earn money, albeit, a bad decision in my opinion.
BUT maybe she should have thought twice about taking up a job that is going to upset thousands of her fans IF she decides to side on the backward views of some of the people featured in the documentary.
I have heard Kate Mulgrew speak at conventions, and she very much comes across as being a science believer, so I am a little dismayed to hear of her participation in this.
But maybe she was tricked into it. The documentary also features several scientists, including Michio Kaku, Lawrence Krauss, and Max Tegmart.
Krauss said Tuesday morning that he had not willingly participated in the film.
“For all who asked: Some clips of me apparently were mined for movie on geocentricism,” the scientist posted on Twitter. “So stupid does disservice to word nonsense. Ignore it.”
For now, I reserve judgement on Mulgrew. I sincerely hope she is not sitting on the wrong side of the fence.
Kate Mulgrew has released a statement on her Facebook page denouncing the whole documentary.
She has no belief in these archaic theories and was duped in the same way some of the scientists in the film are.
