    No. I dare say Trek fans, like the general population, know him best for his role as Thor.

    I *really* wish TrekToday would stop referring to well-established actors as nothing more than the tiny roles they played on a Trek episode or movie. I’m not denying they played a part of Trek’s history, but to say they’re “best known to Trek fans as [XYZ]” comes across as disingenuous at best. Like Cumberbatch being known for his role as Khan. Sorry, that is *not* what he’s going to be remembered for.

    Not saying it’s incorrect. It just sounds lame. It makes Trek fans look like they live in a bubble where nothing exists outside of Trek.

  2. Best known to TREK fans. His best-known role elsewhere would be Thor, but Trek-only fans would know him as George Kirk.

  3. P.S. It’s a TREK news site. We focus on Trek news, hence the emphasis on an actor’s Trek work. If we were general sci-fi, it would be different.

  4. And Trek-only fans would point out that George Kirk could whip Thor in a fight, hands down.

  5. I suppose I could do that. Never know what gets people in a tizzy though, LOL. Wouldn’t have even made it over my fan radar.

  6. I’m no fan of JJTrek, but even I know him from the opening of ST09, before I’d know him as Thor (I’m no fan of the Marvel films, other than Spiderman 2 w/Doc Ock).
