Quotation of Patrick Stewart

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


Before long there was another series, Deep Space Nine, then Voyager, now there is Enterprise. Bill was still filling Captain Kirk's shoes, and I was building shoes of my own.

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


Encouraging people to believe in it was the most important thing of all. It's one of the reasons I was always uncomfortable whenever film crews came on the set to shoot things. I didn't want our make-believe to be exposed.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


I am told that there have been over the years a number of experiments taking place in places like Massachusetts Institute of Technology that have been entirely based on concepts raised by Star Trek.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


I know that Star Trek works, and I know that we have a huge following out there who will come and see the movie anyway. But I want our movie to reach others, who might otherwise simply dismiss i.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart


I know this is a lottery, this business of ours.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart


I made a promise to myself that I would try to introduce something unexpected in every single episode of the series. It was largely to amuse myself as much as anything. I didn't ever want the audience to feel that they knew everything.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart


I said that we must make the best possible movie, which also happens to be a Star Trek movie. That Star Trek element is critical.

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


I was interested in contributing to the scripts as much as possible.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


I wasn't campaigning for a role in a Hollywood television series, it was a fluke. So you've got to have a measure of good luck, you really have, being in the right place at the right time.

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


It still frightens me a little bit to think that so much of my life was totally devoted to Star Trek and almost nothing else.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart

Quotation of Patrick Stewart

Quotation of Patrick Stewart

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


One of the things that I've come to understand is that as I talk a lot about Picard, what I find is that I'm talking about myself.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart


So far as education is concerned, it has had a significant impact on a lot of young people who turn to science as a much more exciting and interesting study than they otherwise might have found, entirely as a result of becoming involved with Star Trek.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart


Somebody asked me what it felt like to be stepping into Captain Kirk's shoes, but as I pointed out he was filling those shoes very satisfactorily still, because they made two feature films during the time that we were shooting the series. So the life of the original Star Trek was continuing.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart

Quotation of Patrick Stewart


Tom Hanks knows the name of all the episodes.
Quotation of Patrick Stewart

We were well into our second season before all of us got that look in our eyes that maybe the predictions had been wrong and that it wasn't going to end after two years or three. The fact that it was to go on for seven-if I had known that I would never have been part of it in the first place.
