I left Star Trek: The Next Generation when I was 18 years old and initially I thought it was a really smart business career move. And in some ways it was and in more ways it wasn’t. What I was unprepared for was how much I was gonna miss the people that are on this stage, and how much I was going to miss the spacesuit that I hated wearing, and the helmet hair that I couldn’t stand putting on in the morning. After I left the show, you know, being 18 years old I was sort of like “I’m gonna go into the world and do my own thing” and I didn’t see anybody. That went on for a while. And I told these guys this when we were having dinner tonight. After that ending, I just felt really ashamed of myself, and I felt like I just couldn’t go to the set. And I felt like I couldn’t look them in the eye, I felt like I didn’t have the right to invite them to my wedding. Years after that I saw them at a few conventions and I tried to apologize for being a kid. To a person on the stage, everyone said “Yeah, you were a kid, you were always welcome, you were always part of us”. To be here tonight, for me, it’s very very much for me, it’s like coming home.
