It`s the year 2000. But where are the flying cars? I was promised flying cars! I don`t see any flying cars! Why? Why? Why?

On how he felt about the ending of Star Trek Deep Space Nine: "The show ran for seven years. It was a long, long road. I did have some reservations initially when I read the script (for the series finale. What You Leave Behind), because I thought they were going to really kill Sisko. I took that very literally, and asked the producers, "Why are you killing Sisko?" The Producers told me, "Look we thought you`d be thrilled because we had made him a God!" The difference, of course, is you have Sisko with another child on the way. You still have Sisko with a young man (Jake Sisko) trying to find his way, and you make him a God! That wasn`t fair." (Sept/Oct 2006, Star Trek Magazine issue #1)

His advice to aspiring actors: "Hold on to your dream. Don`t let the people shake you from your dream. Don`t let form become more important than the substance of your heart and mind. Don`t let commerce determine what you do exclusively" (Sept/Oct 2006, Star Trek Magazine issue #1)

On the best thing about playing a Star Trek captain: "One of the reasons that I accepted, once asked to do Star Trek, was to give a single child a chance to see the long thought, to see themselves some 400 years hence. It occurred to me that we must ensure that we keep in front of children the ever-changing horizon. To let the children know that there is possibility, to let the children know that someone is not going to take away or destroy this world before they have a chance. We have to keep that in front (of them)." (Sept/Oct 2006, Star Trek Magazine issue #1)
