Kate Mulgrew AKA Captain Kathryn Janeway is About to Spit on Science in Geocentric Documentary [Update]

Kate Mulgrew, better known as Captain Kathryn Janeway (of Voyager) fame is doing her bit for religiously-motivated pseudo-science by lending her voice to a documentary that proposes that we live in a geocentric universe (meaning the Sun and everything else revolves around the Earth).

The documentary, which is called The Principle, Robert Sungenis (who also happens to be a holocaust denier and anti-semite) suggests that NASA has been covering up research data that suggests that we live in a geocentric universe.

Now, I don’t know if Mulgrew subscribes to these ridiculous notions or not – for all I know she may just need to eat, but you know what? There are more respectable ways to make a living than lending ones voice to the lunatic fringe. I now feel totally justified for never really warming to Janeway.

UPDATE: Mulgrew has since issued a statement on the matter. It seems that she had no idea that her voice was going to be used in the documentary and that shenanigans were involved.

She wrote:

“I understand there has been some controversy about my participation in a documentary called THE PRINCIPLE. Let me assure everyone that I completely agree with the eminent physicist Lawrence Krauss, who was himself misrepresented in the film, and who has written a succinct rebuttal in SLATE. I am not a geocentrist, nor am I in any way a proponent of geocentrism. More importantly, I do not subscribe to anything Robert Sungenis has written regarding science and history and, had I known of his involvement, would most certainly have avoided this documentary. I was a voice for hire, and a misinformed one, at that. I apologize for any confusion that my voice on this trailer may have caused. Kate Mulgrew.”

As for how her voice got there to begin with, Mulgrew offers this explanation.

I have no recollection of being interviewed for such a film, and of course had I known of its premise I would have refused. So, either the producers used clips of me that were in the public domain, or they bought them from other production companies that I may have given some rights to distribute my interviews to, or they may have interviewed me under false pretenses, in which case I probably signed some release. I simply don’t know.

Maybe Janeway wasn’t so bad after all.
