Denise Crosby Talks TNG at 25, ‘Trekkies’ and Reprising the Role of Sela

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.

Crosby starred in both Trekkies and Trekkies 2, the documentaries by Roger Nygard which focus on devoted Star Trek fans. She talked about the documentaries and how she saw the cultural shift while making the first film. From fans being guarded about their fandom to seeing geek culture enter the mainstream.

I think the most significant thing is when I started out making Trekkies—the documentary—I was really beginning to see the culture changing, in that sci-fi, the internet was just starting to come alive, but people were pretty much still in the closet, so to speak, about their fandom and their eagerness to take part in this. I was seeing a sea change. It was all starting to happen. So I think where we are now is, it’s cool to be a nerd.

She went on to discuss returning to the role of Sela in “Legacy of Romulus”, the first expansion pack for Star Trek Online.

About a year ago when I was at conventions and fans would talk about Star Trek Online and they would talk about ‘Sela is on Star Trek Online and she’s an empress now of the Romulan Empire and why don’t you do the voice?’ They better be asking me soon to do the voice. They can’t have someone else doing Sela.

Anaheim Comic Con Kicks Off April 29th with John de Lancie, Denise Crosby, Chase Masterson, Robert Picardo and More

If you’re into the so-called comic culture (really just an amalgam of fantasy, sci-fi, and comic cultures crossing multiple media forms, but who’s paying that much attention) you’ll want to check out the Anaheim Comic Con starting Friday, April 29th and wrapping up on Sunday, May 1st. If you haven’t already purchased tickets, you can still get them. Prices range from $25 for one day to $45 for all three days. There’s also a VIP package for $150 which includes some neat lithographs and a few other perks. All in all, quite reasonable, and if you live in the Los Angeles Metro region or Orange County you really only have to struggle with parking.

There will be plenty of Trek represented at the convention. From the various Star Trek series you’ll be able to see John de Lancie (best known for his extraordinary role as the iconic “Q”), Denise Crosby (the legendary and short-lived Tasha Yar from TNG), Robert Picardo (the cranky but lovable Emergency Medical Hologram, The Doctor from Voyager), Chase Masterson (sexy Leeta of Quark’s bar in several episodes of DS9), Richard Herd (L’kor in TNG’s “Birthright I & II” and Admiral Owen Paris in several episodes of Voyager), Olivia d’Abo (Q’s reluctant student, Amanda Rogers, in TNG’s  “True Q”), Catherine Hicks (Dr. Gillian Taylor, Kirk’s love interest in Star Trek IV: TVH), Rick Worthy (best known as Noah Lessing on Voyager’s awesome “Equinox I & II”), Lee Arenberg (most remembered as Daimon Bok from TNG episode “Bloodlines”), Joseph Culp (Raimus from DS9 episode “Honor Among Thieves”), and the eternally memorable Sally Kellerman (Dr. Elizabeth Dehner on TOS’ “Where No Man Has Gone Before”).

Also on hand will be Star Trek: DS9 comic book artist Jerry Bingham and Star Trek comic book inker Arne Starr. Most personalities appear to be available on Saturday, but some also appear on Friday or Sunday. I’d check out the details on the convention page before committing to a particular time. If that’s not enough, TrekNews will also be attending in order to continue the never-ending quest for more Trek news.

Tickets and further guest information is available at Wizard’s Anaheim Comic Con website.
