Personal Quote:

[on working in Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)]: I hadn't seen much of Star Trek, so this really was like stepping into a whole new universe. But I feel a sense of honor and responsibility being in it, because I know that the fans of the series and films have such affection for and devotion to all the cast members, and particularly Picard. So I take my seduction of him very seriously. See more »
