“I mostly do writing, but I have done extra work on one or two films. I’ve only been in L.A. for a year. I’m a huge ‘Star Trek’ fan and that’s the only reason I’m here.” (Deborah Netburn / Los Angeles Times)
Eddie Martinez, 46

“I don’t watch ‘Star Trek’ and I’m proud to say it. I just came with these guys. But my eyes are two different colors so I think they’ll probably want to use me.” (Deborah Netburn / Los Angeles Times)
