  • Jeffrey Combs: "It's my fourth time back there [and] they seem to have elevated my character. In the first one I was kind of a renegade leader of a not-so-merry band of rebels, and now it seems like I'm leading a bigger band of not-so-merry rebels. I'm more of a strategist looking over maps and negotiating across the table." (January 28, 2003 - TrekToday)
