I`m very grateful for the career that I`ve had. And I`m very grateful for the experiences that “Star Trek” has afforded me along with my past background. When I look back and think how fortunate I`ve been to work with some wonderful people and had some marvelous experiences, then I can look at “Star Trek” and think it`s almost like the cream on the coffee. I don`t approach it as anything but a magnificent plus.
