Twelve years ago, Star Trek: Insurrection debuted and fans were introduced to the Ba’ku Anij, played by Donna Murphy.
Murphy jumped at the chance to have a role in a Star Trek movie, playing the Ba’ku woman who looked to be only in her thirties, but in reality was over three hundred years old. “It was a no-brainer,” she said. “I thought that the opportunity to step into that world, if you will, was too good to pass up. I loved the part. I thought it was an interesting script.”
When the call came for a part in Star Trek: Nemesis, Ron Perlman was ready and willing to take on the role of the Reman Viceroy.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture was disappointing for Stephen Collins, who played Willard Decker, but it wasn’t all because of the lack of box office success.
Getting the role was no big deal for Collins, who didn’t know that getting a role in the new film was a coveted thing. “Little did I know that tons of actors in Hollywood had been lining up around the block to get in and meet Robert Wise,” he said. “It’s just such a perverse thing about life and especially about show business, but when you don’t need the job that badly is when you seem to get it, and when you desperately want the job and know you can be brilliant in it, you usually don’t get it. Life isn’t fair that way and show business isn’t fair that way. Obviously there are great exceptions to the rule, but those are relatively few and far between. So I went in kind of cool as a cucumber. ‘Hi, Mr. Wise.’ I wasn’t nervous and when you’re not nervous you tend to do your best.”
