Quotes

#Quote
1 [2013] When I told the fans I was an alcoholic, they all applauded. When I told them I had given myself to a higher power, they cheered again. I'm in a great place because I've gone full circle.
2 [on her termination from the original Star Trek (1966) series] They wanted William Shatner to have romances in each episode with a different person, because for him to be stuck with one woman was not good for him and it wasn't good for the audience. That's what they told me, so I was written out. There were two blonde girls and one black girl. Nichelle Nichols was a more important character and couldn't be written out. Everything's political in America. One of the blondes have to go. The other one was engaged to the boss, so guess who went? I just about killed myself. I drank, that's what we do, we drink to get rid of pain. I was really mad. My God, was I bitter.
3 [interview in iFMagazine, September 2006, asked for her opinion on Star Trek (2009) being a prequel film] I don't know how that's going to go. I just don't know about that. I don't know how fans will react to that. How can you go back beyond the classic Trek? They tried that on Star Trek: Enterprise (2001), but did it go, did it work? I think Scott Bakula was terrific on that show. But it didn't last as long as some of the others, and I wonder what happened and why that is.
4 [interview in iFMagazine, September 2006, on Star Trek: Of Gods and Men (2007)] It's cute because I have a nice interchange with Pavel Chekov, and I have a nice interchange with Uhura. It's like old times. It's all very déj
5 [interview in iFMagazine, October 2006, asked if she is surprised at how popular the original Star Trek (1966) series has become] Oh, yeah. It was an acting gig and we thought that Spock was weird and we thought the only reason we were being hired was to sell color television sets, and wasn't Kirk cute? I mean, gosh, he was cute! I was in the middle of the both of them [Kirk and Spock]. Then after the series, I went on to do Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979), and that was supposed to be a series originally. They wrote it as a series, and when Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) came out, Paramount jumped off the roof and they went into the motion picture, and George Takei and I did Star Trek: Voyager (1995). That was going to be a series. We were supposed to have our own show, and they did Star Trek: Enterprise (2001) instead. It was supposed to be George and Gracie [i.e., The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show (1950)] on the Excelsior.
6 [on the famous 'Yeoman Rand' basketweave hairstyle from the original Star Trek (1966) series] It was so heavy it kept listing to the left, I swear they had to nail that thing to my head! It was gorgeous Max Factor hair. It cost a lot of money and somebody stole it. I still have visions of that damn wig turning up. I go down to Skid Row for my recovery program - I'm clean and sober now - and I keep expecting to find some bag lady or drag queen wearing it!
