I grew up watching Star Trek. I can remember sharing a bowl of popcorn with my Dad and watching Star Trek on the couch together. I do consider myself to be a "trekkie". Thus I was very intrigued to read this book.

As I was reading this, I could not get the image of Data out of my head. It was like Data was reading and at times Brent would pop in and interject himself. I have read many memoirs and can find some of them to be a bit on the "dry" side with just facts. Yet, I liked this take on a memoir. It did read like an bizarre episode of Star Trek if Data had to solve a mystery. There were many times I found myself laughing and in shock at just how extreme "fandom" really can become. Fans of Star Trek may want to pick up a copy to read for themselves. ( )

This is a somewhat noir fictional memoir about Brent Spiner's time playing Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and an experience with an off-balance fan turned stalker.

Spiraner portrays himself as still rather naif and not fully aware what a fan favorite Data has become. One morning in his trailer on the lot, he's reading fan mail, and he gets a disturbing piece of mail. This one is a box, and its odor is soon explained by the fact that it contains a pig's penis. An actual pig's penis.

It is, allegedly, from Lal, the "daughter" Data made in the third-season episode, "The Offspring." Lal didn't survive the episode, and now "Lal" wants her daddy, Data, to join her...in death?

It's the start of a series of disturbing letters and incidents. Along the way, Spiner connects with a police detective who turns out to be more interested in getting his break as a Hollywood script writer, an FBI agent, and the FBI agent's twin sister who is a professional bodyguard. There's a pizza delivery guy, a guest actor on the latest episode, and people who might or might not be the potentially dangerous "Lal."

It's a mix of dark and scary, and hilarious. I won't say it's a great work of noir fiction, or of funny noir, but it is pretty good. And with narration mainly by Spiner, and with his bridge crew fellow actors (Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, LeVar Burton, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, and Michael Dorn, as well as others, joining in to read their parts, it's well-performed and very entertaining.

A fun, light listen.

The book cover describes this as a Mem-Noir inspired by actual events. I'm not quite sure what that actually means but what we have here is a book about the man who portrays Data in the Star Trek series. Data is an android who creates a daughter Lal who he kills in the series. So Spiner (the author and actor) gets a plethora of threatening letters saying he will be killed signed "Lal". To untangle these threats on his life there are identical twins Cindy, an FBI agent and Candy who becomes Spiner's bodyguard. A pretty entertaining tongue in cheek mystery. ( )

T/FB: 2021 book #75. 2021. A fictional account of Bret Spiner (Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation) being staked by a deranged fan in 1990. Despite the heavy premise, it was meant to be comical. Some laughs but Spiner is a better actor than a writer. Enjoyable for this Trek fan. ( )

Fan Fiction is a memoir like no other. Brent Spiner plays Data on Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Picard. Although he has had other roles, Data has cemented him in popular culture. Perhaps that gave him the impulse to write this most unique memoir, or perhaps more appropriately, memnoir. While Spiner sticks to the basic facts of his life, he adds some noir with a stalker who threatens to kill him, another who thinks she is his wife, and other assorted encounters.

The death threats are real enough that Spiner contacts the police and is sent to the Head of Obsessives, then the FBI gets involved when a beautiful FBI agent comes knocking. HEr twin sister begins work as his bodyguard with benefits. While this thriller advances, so do stories about his co-stars and his real life, his mother, and his former stepfather. What is true and what is false, I’m not sure we need to know.

I enjoyed Fan Fiction quite a bit, though I enjoyed the memoir more than the noir. I loved Spiner’s self-deprecating sense of humor and his stories that seemed unrelated to the mystery and be a lot of fun. I have googled “Did Michael Dorn study veterinary medicine?” several times. I want answers! The difficulty is wondering what is true and what is false. Of course, while reading it, I just accepted the premise and didn’t worry, I suspended disbelief. This was a fun, enjoyable romp that could not overcome the lesser feeling of jeopardy since the victim is still around to write the book and attend Star Trek conventions.

I received an ARC of Fan Fiction from the publisher through Shelf Awareness
