Denise Crosby Talks TNG at 25, ‘Trekkies’ and Reprising the Role of Sela
Denise Crosby, best known for playing the role of Lieutenant Natasha “Tasha” Yar on the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Sela, the alternate timeline Romulan, recently appeared on the Priority One podcast.
Last year, TNG celebrated its 25th anniversary. To observe the milestone, the cast reunited and appeared on stage together at several conventions around the world. Crosby discussed being on stage with her former castmates, saying:
"Any time we’re all together and brought out on stage and sort of honored in that way is tremendous. You think about twenty-five years, it kind of wow flew by. It’s wonderful to have this place in the Star Trek history and to be so deeply appreciated is always so moving. We were all very very fortunate and we’re all grateful that we were a part of this."
She went on to discuss her appreciation of Star Trek fans.
"It’s a symbiotic relation ship. Us, the actors and the fans. We couldn’t do it without you guys."
