Loryn Stone has dedicated her life to the written Word of the Nerd. Her writing has also been published on other pop culture websites such as Cracked, LoadScreen, PopLurker, and Temple of Geek. Her debut young-adult novel "My Starlight" (a contemporary love letter to fandom, friendship, anime, cosplaying, love, and loss) is out now by Affinity Rainbow Publications. When she's not writing, Loryn's other interests include collecting robots (Megazords, specifically), playing bass, and blasting metal.

James McAvoy really liked playing a younger version of Sir Patrick Stewart in the X-Men franchise, so much so, he now wants another go.

Though this time he’s offered to play a young Jean-Luc Picard in Stewart’s new Star Trek series.

The Scottish actor volunteered his talents on Instagram in a comment underneath a picture of the Star Trek captain with the writing team for the new show.

“Need a flashback guy????” McAvoy wrote. “Just saying @sirpatstew I’ve got previous experience and will work for autographs.”

Patrick Stewart has begun pre-production in his Star Trek series which marks the return of his iconic captain, fourteen years after The Next Generation came to an end. It’s unclear the exact plot, but there are rumors that the series could be set at Star Fleet Academy with Picard now its head. In The Next Generation, the captain is offered the job on several occasions so it would make sense that at this point in his career he might be doing less exploring and more education.
