Susanna Thompson: (about being the Borg Queen on 'Star Trek') I do realize that. Next Generation was one of my husband's favorite shows when it was first on, for its stories and caliber of acting. When I got a small part on Star Trek: The Next Generation, I could go home and just say, "Here's your gift. I did it, now leave me alone." But it unfolded into another Next Generation appearance, and into a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and then into Voyager. I had no idea it would be the first step on a path into Star Trek history.
