Brent Spiner, who used to play Data in "Star Trek" series, won't appear in "Star Trek XI."

A surprising remark has been made by Brent Spiner concerning his involvement in the high-anticipated movie "Star Trek XI." The actor, who has played Data in numerous "Star Trek" installments, has decided to not take part in the project, announcing it as the franchise celebrated its 40th anniversary last Friday, September 8.

"I don't think I should play Data anymore. I think I'm too old to play him anymore to be honest, " so he said. "I think it would look stupid putting that make-up on me at this point. There certain characters that I think work in a youthful way and I think I really skated along the edge in the last couple movies as it was."

A Paramount Pictures production, "Star Trek XI" will be directed by "Alias" creator J.J. Abrams who is also set to produce with Damon Lindelof. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have been tapped to pen the screenplay as well as to executive produce alongside Bryan Burk with an eye for a 2008 release.
