Brent Spiner in The Questor Tapes?

Could we possibly see Brent Spiner in another Android role? That is the question, and the answer may disappoint certain people. It all has to do with the news concerning an old Sci-Fi television movie called The Questor Tapes.

One of Gene Roddenberry's many Sci-Fi creations (Andromeda, Earth Final Conflict and of course Star Trek), The Questor Tapes aired in 1974 and starred Robert Foxworth.

About three weeks ago, Roddenberry Productions announced that it will be brought back to life in the form of a new pilot following a deal with Imagine Entertainment.

The character of Data on Star Trek: The Next Generation was based on the android of The Questor Tapes, and Rod Roddenberry (Gene's son) has expressed his desire to see Brent Spiner play the android on the new show.

However, it seems that the actor has shown no interest in the project, and his involvement on the show could simply be that of a guest spot or a recurring role.
