Sirtis Has High Hopes For Trek X

Marina Sirtis (Deanna Troi) is saddened at the thought that 'Nemesis' might well be the final voyage for the TNG crew, but that doesn't mean that the actress doesn't have high hopes for the film - and her character.

"[Writer John Logan] is a huge Trekkie. He has said that he had a purely professional crush on Troi, which hopefully will translate into Troi having a bigger part, which would work for me," the actress told SFX Magazine (via the Great Link).

Sirtis said that she would like to see resolution to the crew's character arcs. "I've got the feeling that this could be the last one, so it would be nice if we tied up some loose ends," she said. "It breaks my heart to say that it could be the last one, because I know I could make them forever, but I know that certain people are so busy they're having problems fitting the next movie into their schedule."

If 'Nemesis' is indeed the crew's last adventure, Sirtis would like to see them go out with a bang. "I hope it's the best Star Trek movie ever," she said. "It's an even numbered one so there's a good chance."

The actress was interviewed as part of a 35th Anniversary tribute to Trek by SFX. The full feature can be found in this month's edition of the magazine, which can be ordered online. Thanks to the Great Link for the transcript!
