"Riker takes command! Star Trek: The Next Generation alumnus Jonathan Frakes (who played William T.

I like him quite a bit, very funny guy (he walked around in Pajamas for one of Shatner's Star Trek shows) but I'm not sure he is all the good of a director.

He did do First Contact… which was all lot of action and not much else.

Not sure that having him on board really gives the series any credibility it didn't already have.

One episode will not turn around the series.

Well, it worked out so well for the "Thunderbirds" movie . . . .
