Original OSNews Interviews Wil Wheaton is not like most of the rest of the actors. He admits that he is a true geek, running Linux, enjoying programming, playing lots of computer games. Many of you will remember Wil portraying "Wesley Crusher" in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" TV series some years ago. Wil will reprise his role as Wesley in the "Star Trek X: Nemesis" movie, the tenth installment of the Star Trek movies, which is set to be released two days after the second "Lord of the Rings" movie, at the end of this year. In the interview following, Wil talks about his favorite computer games, the computers used on TNG, the future of computing in AI, his favorite Linux distros, PHP and more.

About time they got Will back into the series - Yeah, back in the day it might have been a little strange to have a kid on the command deck of a starship, but that was before we found out about Picard's woody for Dr. Crusher! Can you blame the guy for humoring Wesley in order to get some brownies with the good Doctor? I thought not! I blame the writers and director for this glaring plot mistake!!! Wesley's character really got interesting towards the end of his run on the show... If at that point he has been intro'ed as a new young ensign... who knows how his impact on the show might have changed. But I digress, Will, keep up the good work - but I would watch the T'Pol comments in case the wife trolls osnews, Dude! If she does, you are SO busted!
Thanks for the great work on the series,
Steve
