  • Anthony C. Ferrante at the Mothership has put up an old interview from about two years ago with Robert Wise, the director of 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture', in which he oddly enough doesn't talk about the Trek film at all.

  • TrekWeb has recently posted an interview with Brent Spiner (Data) about the movie, 'Star Trek: Insurrection' taken from Issue 54 of Dreamwatch Magazine. While the interview is actually several months out of date, Spiner does talk about playing Data, his character arc in the movie and the 'Insurrection script'. You can order the back issue of the magazine, which also appears to contain interviews with most of the rest of the TNG cast, at Dreamwatch Magazine.
