Michael: There was a great moment when we were filming The Undiscovered Country, the Khitomer scene, and the entire original cast were there sitting in their chairs and on the other side were all the guest stars sitting in our chairs. And I just looked over and went: Holy shit! These are the people I grew up with. And here I am. It's unbelievable for a little black kid from Pasedena. It was just an amazing moment and I'll never forget it.
Michael Dorn: I love good comedy. I don't like bad comedy.
