Brent Spiner’s New Book is Available for Purchase
“Data” from Star Trek: Next Generation has taken to print to express some thoughts.
Indeed, Brent Spiner wrote a book called Fan Fiction: A Mem-Noir: Inspired by True Events, released on October 12th.
Spiner played Data for all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as all four feature films. As well as portraying Commander Data, Brent Spiner also portrayed Data’s evil brother Lore, and their enigmatic creator, Dr. Noonien Soong in two appearances, first as an elderly man (under a lot of makeup), and later as a younger man in a dream sequence.
The book, which currently has 4.4 out of 5 start on Amazon, is described like this by the retail giant:
“Brent Spiner’s explosive and hilarious novel is a personal look at the slightly askew relationship between a celebrity and his fans. If the Coen Brothers were to make a Star Trek movie, involving the complexity of fan obsession and sci-fi, this noir comedy might just be the one.“
Spiner is also cast in the next season of Star Trek: Picard, premiering on Paramount+ in February 2022.
