Personal Quotes
About leaving the show Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987): "Leaving the show was a really difficult decision to make. It was purely an artistic one. I was very, very frustrated as an actor on the show and I felt straight jacketed. I always kind of use the comparison of being drafted by the major leagues and then being benched so I just felt like I needed to keep going you know, keep running, but I had no idea that I would still have this continuous involvement (with Star Trek) you know".

On why she left Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987): "I wasn't looking to be the star of the show, but I needed more to do than just answering to the captain".

"Well I just think its ironic that Star Trek: The Next Generation: Yesterday's Enterprise (1990) was, to me, my favorite episode that I did and was one of the fans' favorites of the series and that I had to die to actually get that episode written".
