I was always fascinated by science-fiction shows, shows like ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Lost in Space.’
Michael P. Anderson
In the original ‘Star Trek’ TV series, space stations served as deep-space research laboratories, as well as rendezvous points where starships could dock before exploring the unknown. When we were envisioning our own space station, the applications were similar.
Victor J. Glover
I appreciate both… for me, I think ‘Star Wars’ is more science fantasy and is based on a lot of great legendary heroes and morality plays and stuff. And ‘Star Trek’ is just pure fun. Pure science fun. And I’ve always appreciated both.
Ming-Na Wen
I’d be happy to do Star Trek again, if the writing was right.
Stephen Collins
I was like, ‘Whoa, I’m auditioning for ‘Hunger Games?’ That’s like my dream come true. That’s like a Trekkie auditioning for ‘Star Trek.’
Leven Rambin
I did the Kilimanjaro climb a few years ago, then the six-day trek to Machu Picchu in Peru so this bike ride to raise money for Great Ormond Street seemed like the next big challenge.
Denise Van Outen
It’s definitely true that there are a lot of the devices we used on ‘Star Trek,’ that came out the imagination of the writers, and the creators that are actually in the world today.
LeVar Burton
One of the gifts of ‘Star Trek’ is my professional work colleagues have become my lifelong friends.
George Takei
Growing up, one of the shows that the entire family ate dinner at the table was ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation.’ That was one of the greatest television shows ever, and then I’m a fan of ‘Firefly.’
Luke Macfarlane
I have always been more comfortable with daredevil acts than with the everyday nuances of life. Let me jump out of a plane, speak in front of a roomful of strangers, even trek across Siberia.
Sarah Kay
That’s in the mission statement when you’re part of ‘Trek.’ It’s our job to try to be bold and push forward. You have to be conscious of that.
Justin Lin
I started by looking everything up in a Star Trek dictionary so I knew what I was talking about, but you can’t do that because they talk in circles, and half of it doesn’t make sense, so you’ll just end up driving yourself more insane.
Jeri Ryan
I grew up watching ‘Star Trek.’ I love ‘Star Trek.’ ‘Star Trek’ made me want to see alien creatures, creatures from a far-distant world. But basically, I figured out that I could find those alien creatures right on Earth. And what I do is I study insects.
Michael Dickinson
I think of ‘Shrapnel’ as the anti-‘Star Trek.’
Nick Sagan
I am a classic ‘Star Trek’ fanatic.
Rachel Cohn
I love the fact that it’s not only about Star Trek, but about science fiction in general, and science.
Rene Auberjonois
After Star Trek, I was with the top agencies, but producers and directors did not know what to do with me.
Persis Khambatta
‘Star Trek’ scared me a lot more than ‘White Jazz.’ It terrified me, really. Because of the scale, the responsibility, the fact that it was this iconic character. It was the bigger challenge, so I had to take it.
Chris Pine
Diminutive worlds are more likely to be rocky, and lapped by oceans and atmospheres. In the vernacular of ‘Star Trek,’ these would be M-class planets: life-friendly oases where biology could begin and bumpy-faced Klingons might exist.
Seth Shostak
I think the reason why ‘Star Trek’ works so well was its small family feeling. The show felt small, you could see the mistakes, you could see rocks weren’t rocks. You caught them at it all the time, but you didn’t care because you were so hooked to the people and to the stories. It was a fabulous show.
Mariette Hartley
We’ve definitely talked about making a musical episode. We definitely need to make that happen. Let’s get Lin-Manuel Miranda on the phone. He’s a Star Trek’ fan, so I feel we can make this happen.
Isa Briones
I love ‘Star Trek: Voyager!’
Katherine Langford
As a fan of the franchise, I count myself among the countless LGBTQ fans who have longed to see themselves and our relationships depicted on ‘Star Trek.’
Wilson Cruz
Star Trek has brought so much of what I want within my grasp.
DeForest Kelley
I watched a lot of American TV, all those repeats of ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Fantasy Island,’ ‘M*A*S*H,’ ‘Lost in Space.’ All that stuff was the fodder of my childhood.
Toby Stephens
I was a big fan of ‘Star Trek.’ But then again, you know, ‘Star Trek’, ‘Star Wars’, ‘Doctor Who’, I wasn’t a big fan, but you know, when they ask you and they cast you and it drops in your lap, how can you say no to these franchises.
Deep Roy
What’s impressed me about ‘Star Trek’ fans is how many generations they span and how many nations they represent. They are all over the place.
John Cho
Uh, I do not wear a wig in ‘Star Trek’ like I did in ‘Bottle Shock,’ thank God. ‘Bottle Shock’ will be the last wig movie I ever do.
Chris Pine
I’m a massive Trekkie. I’ve got original artwork from the ’70s. I’ve got outfits. Yeah, I have actual ‘Star Trek’ outfits that I wear. I’m a massive, massive ‘Star Trek’ fan.
Robert Kazinsky
There’s two tiers of science fiction: the McDonalds sci-fi like Star Trek, where they have an adventure and solve it before the last commercial, and there are books that once you’ve read, you never look at the world the same way again.
David Gerrold
Most visions of extraterrestrial life are actually steeped in human hubris. The fictional extraterrestrials of ‘Star Trek’ or a hundred other space operas are less alien than many of my neighbors. And funny, the ones running the place are mostly WASPish men.
Nathan Myhrvold
In my living room - it's probably going to be moved to

In my living room – it’s probably going to be moved to my office soon because it freaks too many people out – I have a huge seven foot statue of ‘Seven of Nine’ of ‘Star Trek Voyager.’
Matthew Moy
I didn’t know anything about ‘Star Trek.’ I was doing theater a lot in those days, getting my life together. I didn’t watch television. So, to come in on it was a really amazing experience.
Mariette Hartley
All the people in Star Trek will always be known as those characters. And what characters to have attached to your name in life! The show is such a phenomenon all over the world.
Nichelle Nichols
It’s either ‘Saw’ made for $4 million or ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ et cetera being made for $150 million. So the $30 and $40 million films don’t get made unless they’re maybe ‘Ride Along.’ But I don’t really know why. I don’t get paid to know why.
Chris Pine
The thing about ‘Star Trek’ is that it is not judgmental. You can do what ever you want, within reason.
Marina Sirtis
I once went to a ‘Star Trek’ convention by mistake – I thought I was going to a ‘Doctor Who’ one.
Sylvester McCoy
I didn’t really watch a lot of Star Trek’ as a child. I’m kicking myself now that I haven’t, but once I got the show, I started watching and became a huge fan.
Isa Briones
Which is good, in a way, because the danger in doing something like STAR TREK is that you end up in that pigeonhole and you’re doing that the rest of your life.
Colm Meaney
I got into writing to become a ‘Star Trek’ writer. I was a rabid fan. I had shelves and shelves and shelves of action figures in my bedroom that scared away more dates than I care to admit to.
Bryan Fuller
I spent years doing ‘Star Trek’ bits and things, and a lot of people loved it, a lot of people mocked it.
William Shatner
‘Star Trek’ was always a little bit closed emotionally. I never connected to the characters.
J. J. Abrams
I get called Harold the most. I think maybe ‘Harold & Kumar’ fans don’t know my name, and ‘Star Trek’ fans do know my name… Harold fans are vocal!
John Cho
I would jump at the chance to work with the inordinately-talented J.J. Abrams on a new ‘Star Trek’ film.
Harlan Ellison
I really didn’t follow Star Trek.
John de Lancie
Certainly, Occupy Wall Street protesters have different ideas about the movement’s mission. Many of the marchers I met even disagreed on the purpose of their trek – some thought it was about getting to Washington to protest the ‘supercommittee’; others thought it was about visiting other Occupations.
Elizabeth Flock
The question always arose from both fans and friends was, ‘Have you ever done ‘Star Trek,’ and if not, would you want to?’ And the answer was always, ‘No, I haven’t, and yes, I would love to!’ So now, at the age of 57, I can finally say, ‘I’m in the new Star Trek!’ And I’m so excited about it!
Doug Jones
When I was younger I dreamt of intrepid travel and whenever I had some time off I wanted to scuba dive. Nowadays I’m a bit more relaxed but I’d still like to do an Amazonian trek.
Katie Melua
I started watching ‘Star Trek’ as a kid.
Henry Ian Cusick
I think the potential for man is so enormous, if we can stay alive long enough, we’re going to be seeing a lot of what Star Trek is projecting.
Brent Spiner
I’m not a great ‘Star Trek’ fan, but I love science fiction.
John de Lancie
‘Star Trek’ speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow – it’s not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans.
Gene Roddenberry
I wanted to explore the Seventies idea of the ideal futuristic woman. So I watched cheesy films like ‘Weird Science’ and more dodgy things like ‘Star Trek,’ ‘Barbarella’ and ‘Logan’s Run.’
Matthew Williamson
I am a nerd, but I don’t dive head-first into any fiefdom of nerdiness, except for maybe ‘Star Trek.’
James McAvoy
The technobabble in ‘Trek’ just got completely out of control.
Ronald D. Moore
I even got invited to a ‘Star Trek’ sea cruise. That was pretty exciting.
Carel Struycken
When I try to be funny, it always makes me more nervous that I’m trying too hard, and then my brain that already thinks too much jumps into hyper drive, and I light-speed start talking ‘Star Trek’ to someone who’s talking ‘Star Wars.’ Anyway, it doesn’t work out usually when I ‘try’ to be funny.
Coy Bowles
I think ‘Star Trek’ has a really beautiful legacy of humor, along with the more philosophical and action parts of ‘Star Trek.’ And so I felt pretty honored to get to keep that legacy going.
Mary Wiseman
I grew up with ‘Star Trek,’ so to get to do anything in it was fun for me.
Faran Tahir
It wasn’t until the first season ended that I went to my first Star Trek convention. It was in Denver. There were two and a half thousand people there.
Patrick Stewart
The original ‘Star Trek’ is very much a product of the ’60s – the new frontier, optimism, the idea of bringing democracy to the galaxy. It’s still a timeless show, but it’s very much a show made in the 1960s.
Ronald D. Moore
I read a lot of fantasy and grew up on ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Star Trek.’ I loved going to Middle Earth. ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ was a huge influence.
Tony DiTerlizzi
Nobody could have imagined the phenomenon that 'Star Tr

Nobody could have imagined the phenomenon that ‘Star Trek’ became. It’s still almost impossible to imagine.
William Shatner
By all standards, except for ‘Star Trek’ standards, 98 episodes of any television show is a wildly successful run.
Scott Bakula
I would like – either as an actor, or producer or even director – to do something sci-fi or action-related. I like sci-fi, always have, ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Wars’ and all that stuff.
Queen Latifah
I’ve spent a lot of time researching the subject and government deception. So to be involved in Star Trek is perfect for me. I enjoy meeting the fans and discussing my interests with them.
Dwight Schultz
I’m going down in history with Star Trek. It’s a great feeling.
Persis Khambatta
I did not have a very in-depth knowledge of ‘Star Trek’. I’d seen a couple of the vintage episodes. I knew just about as much as anyone on the street.
Cristin Milioti
There are several books that I have-the Physics of Star Trek, Star Trek and Business, there are manuals on command style and countless scholarly papers that have been written about the significance of Next Generation.
Patrick Stewart
‘Star Trek’ posited a better future.
Robert Picardo
People tell me they laughed hard enough to wake their spouses, that they’ve given away numerous copies to friends, and that it’s the one Trek book they’ll give to people they wouldn’t expect to like others.
John M. Ford
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.
DeForest Kelley
In our first season we had a 22 rating. Today Seinfeld, a hit show, gets a 15. Lost in Space actually had a bigger audience than Star Trek got at that time.
Mark Goddard
My passion for ‘Star Trek’ is actually rooted in my love of television and the art of franchise and a premise designed to stick people together that have to figure out what to do.
Dan Harmon
I’ve never actually seen a Star Trek, but I have seen an Alien movie.
Izabella Scorupco
One of my favorite things about ‘Star Trek’ wasn’t just the overt banter but the humor in that show about the relationships between the main characters and their reactions to the situations they would face; there was a lot of comedy in that show without ever breaking its reality.
J. J. Abrams
My brothers and I would try to talk our dad into letting us stay up and watch ‘Star Trek.’ I remember watching it and feeling that a family is not just by blood, a family is a shared experience and that really stuck with me.
Justin Lin
Traditional economics is based on imaginary creatures sometimes referred to as ‘Homo economicus.’ I call them Econs for short. Econs are amazingly smart and are free of emotion, distraction or self-control problems. Think Mr. Spock from ‘Star Trek.’
Richard Thaler
And I enjoyed the celebrity and the creativity that was involved in Star Trek.
William Shatner
They get you to do a lot of stuff on ‘Star Trek’ by saying it’s the first time this is ever gonna happen on ‘Star Trek.’
Mary Wiseman
I love sci-fi. Growing up, I was a big fan of the ‘Alien’ series, ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,’ etcetera. Plus, anything apocalyptic – ‘I Am Legend,’ ‘1984,’ ‘Battlestar Galactica.’
Sam Heughan
I’m a big ‘Star Trek’ fan.
Laurie Halse Anderson
‘Star Trek’ came along fairly early. And I don’t know what they saw in me that said Captain Kruge, because I hadn’t done anything remotely like that, but it worked out.
Christopher Lloyd
As a card-carrying space nerd and NASA’s chief scientist, I love space movies, from ‘Star Trek’ to ‘Star Wars’ to my all-time favorite – ‘The Dish’, an Australian comedy that celebrates that first moment when Neil Armstrong stepped down onto the surface of our moon.
Ellen Stofan
I was addicted to the original ‘Star Trek’ when I was growing up, because of my dad. We grew up in St. Helens, Oregon and we weren’t allowed to watch a lot of TV.
Katee Sackhoff
Star Trek’s genial premise is that the cosmos is flush with intelligent species, and our descendants will interact with them face-to-face, thanks to warp drive and some winsome space cadets.
Seth Shostak
I can enjoy ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Star Trek,’ but I really appreciate hard science fiction.
Kip Thorne
I’ve agreed to do several Star Trek conventions this coming year.
Nichelle Nichols
I was a huge ‘Star Trek’ fan. I loved the ‘Twilight Zone’ growing up. In the future, I hope to create some thoughtful, sci-fi drama.
Seth MacFarlane
‘Star Trek’ was inspiring to me.
Leroy Chiao
You play a hologram on ‘Star Trek,’ and you have to spew line after line. I spoke in paragraphs on ‘Star Trek.’
Robert Picardo
Star Trek and sci-fi in general has always been a mirror to our society, obviously, and I think it is reminiscent of a lot of ideas.
Isa Briones
I think anybody with any intelligence sits down and sees Star Trek not a kids’ show.
Nichelle Nichols
Having grown up on 'Star Trek,' I've had one great drea

Having grown up on ‘Star Trek,’ I’ve had one great dream since childhood, and that is to see my life end somewhere other than here on Earth.
Thomas P.M. Barnett
A man’s work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.
Albert Camus
I’m still a ‘Star Trek’ fan. You never stop being one.
Mila Kunis
I’m enormously proud of the fact that Star Trek has really not just sparked an interest, but encouraged, a few generations of people to go into the sciences.
LeVar Burton
I was tired of writing for shows where there was always a shoot-out in the last act and somebody was killed. ‘Star Trek’ was formulated to change that.
Gene Roddenberry
I went to see ‘Star Trek Into Darkness,’ and J.J. Abrams, who’s a friend of mine, made this film, and I went to see it at the premiere. Believe it or not, I was really blown away by the comic timing of it.
James Gray
All of my definitions of family were heavily influenced by my ‘Star Trek’ experience.
Justin Lin
Personally, I’m not into ‘Star Trek’ or physics or comic books, but I know I might be in the minority.
Simon Helberg
‘Star Trek’ was a big thing for me. I kind of grew up with that. And ‘Twilight Zone’ is one of my all-time favorite shows. In fact me and Sam Witwer from ‘Being Human’ sit down and have marathons to get our little ‘Twilight Zone’ fix.
Mark Pellegrino
‘Star Trek’ is about acceptance, and the strength of the Starship Enterprise is that it embraces diversity in all its forms.
George Takei
There is not a new hopeful, optimistic vision of the future that I am currently aware of. Certainly, not one that has penetrated pop culture awareness in the way ‘Star Trek’ has.
Ronald D. Moore
When you’re a kid, ‘Star Trek’ is a slower burn. It’s funny, it’s entertaining, but it also has a maturity about it – which is its universal appeal, I think.
Benedict Cumberbatch
Feminists are like the Borg from ‘Star Trek.’ They don’t know anything about other groups beyond the fact that they need to be assimilated into a hivemind that mindlessly follows the orders of a Queen.
Milo Yiannopoulos
I have always loved science fiction. One of my favorite shows is ‘Star Trek.’ I like the trips, where it drops my mind off, because they give you a premise and all of a sudden, you say, ‘Oh!’ and I’m fascinated by it.
Leslie Nielsen
Well, you know, ‘Spaceballs’ is a weird combination, because it’s a simple, sweet little fairytale, and it’s crazy and out-there and making fun of and taking apart sci-fi, ‘Star Wars’, and ‘Star Trek’.
Mel Brooks
I hadn’t watched ‘Star Trek’ when I was a kid.
John de Lancie
Of course, if you’re going to enter the ‘Star Trek’ Universe, you want to work with Spock, you want to work with Kirk, you want to work with McCoy, and Scotty, and Sulu, and Uhura. The next one for me would have been Picard.
Tamlyn Tomita
You can’t escape ‘Star Trek’ influence, especially characters you literally grew up with.
Tamlyn Tomita
I am a classic Star Trek fanatic. When I was a kid, my mom and I used to go to conventions.
Rachel Cohn
I just feel so flattered, because the cosplayers really make sure every detail is there. I don’t think I’ve ever cosplayed a character before, but if I were to, I’d probably go as a Klingon from ‘Star Trek.’
Karen Gillan
It’s more dangerous to be a friend or relative of Jackie Chan in the star’s movies than it is to play the third yeoman on a ‘Star Trek’ episode.
Elvis Mitchell
No, the type-casting didn’t happen until after Star Trek. I don’t think that you get typecast until you’ve been cast!
Jonathan Frakes
I’ve often reflected on this in the past weeks as I’ve been following the presidential campaign: Very often, I thought it would have been great for both of these guys to sit down and be force-fed a couple of dozen episodes of Star Trek.
Patrick Stewart
I’ll tell you, I’ve never particularly been a ‘Trek’ person. I feel about ‘Trek’ the way one feels about known, vaguely liked, but rather distant members of one’s family.
China Mieville
Sci-fi always runs out a little bit ahead of reality, right? Automatic doors in ‘Star Trek,’ stuff like that. It all happened, didn’t it, finally?
Natalie Dormer
Up until the time I was cast in ‘Star Trek,’ the roles were pretty shallow – thin, stereotyped, one-dimensional roles. I knew this character was a breakthrough role, certainly for me as an individual actor but also for the image of an Asian character: no accent, a member of the elite leadership team.
George Takei
‘Lost’ is an entity of its own. It’s still such a culture touchstone that I think it’ll be something people go back to for a long time, like ‘Star Trek.’ I’m just so amazed by the show’s popularity.
Sonya Walger
What they told us about ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ when we first started was that we were guaranteed 26 episodes, so that was the longest job I’ve ever had. And that was basically it – we didn’t know what the premise of the show was going to be and we waited, week by week, to see a script.
Marina Sirtis
There was a time that I did ‘Up,’ ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Land of the Lost,’ and I was working on ‘Lost,’ at the same time, and that was really hard.
Michael Giacchino
In the literal sense, there has been no relevant evolution since the trek from Africa. But there has been substantial progress towards higher standards of rights, justice and freedom – along with all too many illustrations of how remote is the goal of a decent society.
Noam Chomsky
I really used my own imagination a lot and made a number of suggestions during my tenure on ‘Star Trek.’
Robert Picardo
'Star Trek' episodes always insisted that humanity is o

‘Star Trek’ episodes always insisted that humanity is on its bumpy way to what will be a glorious future in the 23rd century, in which we will have left most of our old selfishness – and old hatreds and prejudices – far behind us.
Gene Roddenberry
I came face-to-face with a gorilla which was quite good, but it was a 10-hour trek in bad weather, up hills, covered in mud, with mosquitoes everywhere and when we got there the gorilla’s just sat there doing nowt.
Karl Pilkington
I didn’t want to be trapped in an idea of replicating other ‘Star Trek’ characters; especially Vulcans. But my love and I have Spock paraphernalia all over our house. He’s an omnipresence in our lives, we adore him.
Tamlyn Tomita
That was the great, great thing about ‘Star Trek,’ that it was a show that people could tune into at all sorts of different levels.
John de Lancie
My mother fed my love of demons, science fiction, and paranormal. She was a devout horror movie fan who kept me up until the wee hours to watch ‘Outer Limits,’ ‘Night Gallery,’ ‘Twilight Zone,’ and ‘Star Trek.’ We lived to watch those reruns.
Sherrilyn Kenyon
One of my favorite shows when I was a kid was the old ‘Star Trek’ reruns.
Rekha Sharma
People think that being on Star Trek is career suicide, but it’s really just the opposite.
Brent Spiner
‘Trek’ is probably more cerebral and philosophical. ‘Stargate’ does seat-of-the-pants adventure and humor better.
Robert Picardo
Spock is a huge mythical character that even people who aren’t ‘Star Trek’ fans like.
Mary Wiseman
What sweetens the deal for me is that I get to develop an alien species from the ground up. I’m playing Saru, a Kelpian, and this race has never been seen before in any ‘Star Trek’ series.
Doug Jones
Being on ‘Star Trek,’ you have a funny relationship with fame.
Robert Picardo
I don’t think anybody wants to see a dour ‘Star Trek’ movie.
Damon Lindelof
The wonderful thing about ‘Star Trek’ is that they’re very open to suggestions for scripts and story ideas from the viewers. That’s really unique.
Carel Struycken
The message of ‘Star Trek,’ if there is one, seems to be that we should try to live up to the very best that we’re capable of.
John Cho
‘Star Trek’ works for me because it deals with the petty issues of humankind.
Genesis P-Orridge
I used to love the ‘Star Trek’ movies, ‘Wrath of Khan’ and stuff like that. Loved those movies when I was a kid. And ‘Star Wars’ obviously was hands-down probably – I mean I had the sheets. I was a big fan of that.
Michael Ealy
It’s ‘Star Trek!’ It’s as close to an American mythology as we get. To be a part of that storytelling after being a fan since I was a teenage boy who saw the pilot episode of ‘Next Generation’ air, it’s all very surreal.
Wilson Cruz
I’m proud to welcome the attendees of March for Life 2019, especially those Hoosiers who made the trek to Washington to show their conviction for defending the rights of the unborn. Your passion is inspiring and your advocacy makes a real difference in lives and laws every day.
Mike Braun
‘Star Trek’ is notorious for looting the more thoughtful work of writers for their striking effects, leaving behind most of the thought and subtlety.
Gregory Benford
We had some very distinguished fans: I know one chancellor of a major university who used to schedule his meetings around Star Trek. We were thrilled to discover that Frank Sinatra was a big fan.
Patrick Stewart
It shouldn’t be so difficult to determine what a planet is. When you’re watching a science fiction show like ‘Star Trek’ and they show up at some object in space and turn on the viewfinder, the audience and the people in the show know immediately whether it’s a planet or a star or a comet or an asteroid.
Alan Stern
It was a superlative joy of my long life to have worked with Leonard Nimoy, who became my friend, and many others at ‘Star Trek.’
Harlan Ellison
It has always been a goal of mine to climb Kilimanjaro, so that’s definitely happening, and I may write a memoir about it. When I was 25, I tried to trek to Everest Base Camp, but I got sick and ended up being carried out of Dingboche on the back of my Sherpa. So Kilimanjaro would represent a redemption of sorts.
Elin Hilderbrand
Of course, the young male demographic has always been the target demographic for ‘Star Trek,’ the men ageing fifteen to about twenty-five or thirty, a very tough market to appeal to.
Kate Mulgrew
Growing up, my parents had this little fish and chips restaurant in Anaheim in the shadows of Disneyland, and they didn’t close until 9 P.M. As a family, we didn’t eat dinner until 10 P.M., and we would watch the original Star Trek every night at 11.
Justin Lin
Star Trek is perhaps the best thing that ever happened to me, in a career sense.
DeForest Kelley
All I ever wanted to do when I was a kid was be in a Broadway musical and to be in ‘Star Trek,’ and I can finally say I’ve done that.
Wilson Cruz
I know stuff about ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Star Wars,’ but ‘Star Trek,’ I don’t know.
Kunal Nayyar
In my proudest moments, I think I had a real hand in the creative force of making ‘Star Trek.’ But most of the time, I don’t think about it.
William Shatner
From being a little kid, I’ve always been interested in space. ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Close Encounters’ – not ‘Star Wars.’
Shaun Ryder
Star Trek’s insight lay in the promise of going to the stars together, with well-defined stereotypes who could supply the emotional frame for the potentially jarring truths of these distant places.
Gregory Benford
The spirit of hope and optimism is always there, and th

The spirit of hope and optimism is always there, and that’s what I think characterizes Star Trek’ in such a big way.
Isa Briones
On a 60-mile trek with a 200-kg. bergen on my back, I felt my ankle break. Some might have given up. I broke my other ankle to even up the pain. And carried on.
Ant Middleton
I didn’t realize it at first, but the Doctor is in the same spirit as those natural ‘outsider’ characters ‘Star Trek’ series have, like Spock and Data.
Robert Picardo
Listen to the sounds of nature. Wishing you the best on your trek towards your dreams.
Kalpana Chawla
As a kid, ‘Star Wars’ was much more my thing than ‘Star Trek’ was.
J. J. Abrams
Some of the storytelling we did in ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ to graft that onto ‘Star Trek,’ it would have required changing the entire format of the show and, really, a different taste of the show.
Ronald D. Moore
