Mark Lenard, famously known as Spock’s father ’Sarek’ and the Romulan Commander in the episode “Balance Of Terror” actually became the first actor to play a Klingon with forehead ridges (and the first to speak the Klingon language) when he appeared as the Klingon Captain of the IKS Amar in Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Lenard had actually requested to reprise his role as Sarek for this film, but when his request was declined, he was offered the role of the Klingon captain instead

I think my favorite thing about this Pinto moment is that Zach has just said “misappropriated” to the interviewer (while obviously tipsy, which is impressive) and Chris interrupts to say “misappropriated is a wonderful word,” so then Zach hOOKS HIS FINGER IN HIS LAPEL AND MURMURS “MISAPPROPRIATED, MISAPPROPRIATED” WHILE PULLING HIM AWAY FROM THE INTERVIEWER AND MAKING BEDROOM EYES AND THEN THEY QUICKLY SAY GOODBYE AND WANDER AWAY THEY HAVE KILLED ME I AM DEAD [X]


“Well, when I was nine years old Star Trek came on. I looked at it and I went screaming through the house, ‘Come here, mum, everybody, come quick, come quick, there’s a black lady on television and she ain’t no maid!’ I knew right then and there I could be anything I wanted to be.” - Whoopi Goldberg speaking of Nichelle Nichols

“When I was young, my dad always let me listen to comedy albums. I always knew about comedy, I always loved comedy.The day that I saw Whoopi Goldberg on television, I cried so hard, because I kept looking at my daddy going, ‘Oh my god. there’s somebody on TV that looks like me! She looks like me! Yay! I can be on TV! I can be on TV! I can do it! Look at her look at her! she looks just like me.‘” -Leslie Jones speaking of Whoopi Goldberg

 I absolutely loved doing the Star Trek convention because the people are so wonderful. They’re third generation now, and possibly fourth generation, for all I know. Some of them have named their children after my characters. So they are my extended family. Often you don’t see your extended family for a long time, so it’s always a joy to see them


The only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don’t have control over your situation. But you have a choice about how you view it.
