Thank you all so very much for your unbridled support of Carolyn in our quest to get her a spot in the upcoming Star Trek film sequel. We are very pleased to have reached well beyond our goal of 1,000 signers - so kudos to each and every one of you! As of this writing, JJ Abrams has agreed to return to the director's chair for the next Star Trek, and the new movie is now in preproduction. So, we've closed the petition and snail-mailed a special package to JJ that includes your wonderful signatures! We also passed a few of the other Star Trek-themed goodies that were included in the package on to Carolyn, which she has shared via her Facebook page (http://on.fb.me/oAPYhj). And...we have great news! Carolyn has already heard from JJ, and he assures her that he will seriously consider her for a role if a suitable one turns up. So, let's hope that we get to see Carolyn boldly going where no one has gone before! Of course, you can always keep up with Carolyn's activities, and the latest Cassini discoveries, by signing up for her email announcements at http://ciclops.org and by following her on Facebook and Twitter.
we've got signatures,
help us get to 1,000

You've seen plenty of sci-fi flicks in your lifetime, sure. And sometimes you just want to believe... But some of us really appreciate seeing the results of actual space exploration ending up in our favorite sci-fi adventures. Which is why we're glad that films like Contact and 2009's Star Trek have employed the consulting services of the eminent space scientist Carolyn Porco. However! We feel that adding Dr. Porco to a list of about 10,000 credits and inviting her to the Hollywood premiere is not quite enough. We therefore have created this petition...
WHEREAS: Dr. Porco is as gifted a public speaker as any scientist we've ever heard; and
WHEREAS: There is probably no one living today who's as tirelessly dedicated to space exploration as Dr. Porco; and
WHEREAS: We think she'd look pretty awesome in a Federation uniform
THEREFORE: We the undersigned propose that J.J. Abrams & Co. ensure that Carolyn Porco has a cameo appearance in the next installment of the Star Trek filmseries. You know you want to sign it, so please do! And, ya know, live long and all the rest.
