Donna: (On working in Star Trek: Insurrection in 1998) I hadn't seen much of Star Trek, so this really was like stepping into a whole new universe. But I feel a sense of honor and responsibility being in it, because I know that the fans of the series and films have such affection for and devotion to all the cast members, and particularly Picard. So I take my seduction of him very seriously.
Donna: I love any kind of transformation. I want to look in the mirror and not see Donna looking back at me.
