I have his address and have contacted him on numerous occasions, but I believe Timo has had the most contact. With the whole Ed Miarecki incident where 300 people were contacting him asking basically the same question, methinks it best to have only one person do the talking.
Okuda is a very nice guy who has been very helpful in the past with ST info. He's also been real good with the fans. The last thing we want to do is piss him off, so here's a short list of do's & dont's:
1. Make your question brief & to the point. He's not fond of having to read an email book.
2. Don't send him any pics or other forms of attachments, as he does not like to open something from a stranger's email message which for all he knows could contain a virus (and no one else should, either).
3. Make sure the aforementioned 300 people are not also asking him the same question.
4. And for heaven's sake, thank him if he actually answers your question! It's hard enough to get in contact with anyone associated with ST, especially a nice guy.
"A film made in 2008 isn't going to look like a TV series from 1966 if it wants to make any money. As long as the characters act the same way, and the spirit of the story remains the same then it's "real" Star Trek. Everything else is window dressing." -StCoop
