1I have deep feelings about Star Trek. I feel that it's able to present archetypes that are important storytelling tools. And we need storytelling.
2[When asked if she felt Terry Farrell made the right decision by leaving Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993).] Absolutely. Because she was following her own instincts. That can't be wrong and she certainly got a lot more years of experience doing the Ted Danson show Becker (1998) on CBS. I'll admit that I tried to talk Terry out of it. That I wanted her to stay. But she told me very eloquently that it was what her heart insisted upon. You can't argue with that.
