Anna L. Kaplan over at Fandom has put up an interview with LeVar Burton, who starred in The Next Generation as Geordi LaForge. The interview was conducted while Burton was directing 'Live Fast and Prosper', the Voyager episode airing tomorrow, and a large part of the interview consists of Burton recounting the many Trek episodes he directed. At the end, however, he also talks about his other projects, such as the Disney TV movie 'Safe House', his upcoming 'The Watsons go to Birmingham', and of course 'Reading Rainbow'. However, he also has something to say about his future on Trek:

"I imagine if there is another movie, that would be the next opportunity. Do I want to do another movie? I don't know if want is how I would characterize it at this point. I will say that the last one was a lot of fun, and it would be great to have another experience like that-another wonderful, positive, fun experience. They've said that if there is another one it will happen on slightly different timeline than these movies have been made in the past. They want to create a little bit more separation between release dates. So whenever that is, and they give me the call and say here's the script, whatever the process, if they are going to do it again, I am certainly open to it."
