A new movie trailer for The Principle, an upcoming documentary film focusing on geocentrism — the cosmological philosophy which places Earth at the centre of the known universe — will feature Star Trek: Voyager actress Kate Mulgrew as narrator.
In the trailer, Mulgrew tells audiences, “Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong.”
This has sparked a number of heated discussions among fans surprised to see the Trek star taking part in a feature promoting such a highly controversial topic.
From The Principle website:
“The Principle”, destined to become one of the most controversial films of our time, brings before the public eye astonishing results from recent large-scale surveys of our universe: surveys which disclose unexpected evidence of a preferred direction in the cosmos, aligned with our supposedly insignificant Earth.
The actress wrote on Facebook to offer an explanation on how she became involved in the film: essentially, she was duped.
“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”
