My vote would be for Patrick Stewart, Leonard Nimoy or Michael Dorn. I can easily imagine hearing any of those three with the narration.

JUST IN!!!: I found out the new narration is one of the doctors from either Voyager or Enterprise. I'm going to get a camcorder version this week. My contact doesn't know which show it's from, so he's going to send me a live version so I can figure it out. More details as soon as I get them

Robert Picardo from Voyager or John Billingsley from Enterprise are the two choices. I'm not big fan of either but I would prefer Robert Picardo, has a more Spaceship Earth voice.

Huh. I didn't watch more than a couple of episodes of Enterprise so that doctor's voice doesn't really come to me. Robert Picardo would be okay, though.

Sorry to say, my contact couldn't get it done. I was told all they were hearing was a demo and it was impossible to record. SORRY!!

I think Walter's voice was more fun. Irons is very serious. I like Iron's voice personally.

Why are they changing it anyway? I like the narration by Irons as is.

Edit: Nevermind, I went back to the original post. Well, maybe Siemens will try and save some money and leave it alone.

No, he just told me that all they heard was a demo. I don't know if it been decided. More likely: Disney is playing this very close to the chest. I was told as soon as he finds out he would tell me. SORRY!! :roll:

What about Ricardo Montlebon? He wasn't a main character in Star Trek, but he was in both a movie and an episode of the original series. I think he would be great also.
Please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle until the ride comes to a full and complete stop. Thank you, and enjoy the rest of your day here at Walt Disney World.
