Star Trek’s Wil Wheaton Ditched By The Suicide Girls

Have you ever had one of those experiences where you found out about something exciting and then discovered that it no longer exists all in the same day? I am having one of those moments. Nerve Scanner says that Wil Weaton, who played Ensign Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation has been laid off from his blogger position on site A) WTF? How did I not know that Wil Wheaton blogged for such an awesome sex site? B) How does a raging nerd like Wheaton get a gig like that? and C) Why did he get cut loose?

Before I continue, it’s probably important that I confess that I grew up a bit of a Trekkie and while I have outgrown the geeky obsession, I still have a soft spot for ol’ Wil, who was the first recipient of a love/fan letter from yours truly. It’s embarrassing, but we all have our skeletons.

Anyway, it seems that Wheaton, who wrote a column called “Geek In Review”, got the ax along with a bunch of other bloggers and writers due to budget cuts. Sigh. Guess I’m going to have to relive my adolescent space sex fantasies through the archives. []
