Before I met her, my world was a much smaller place. I kept to myself. I didn’t need anyone else and I took pride in that. The truth is, I was ashamed of what I was, afraid that if people saw how truly different I was they would recoil from me. Lwaxana saw how different I was and she didn’t recoil. She wanted to see more. For the first time in my life, someone wanted me as I was. And that changed me forever. The day I met her, is the day I stopped being alone. And I want her to be part of my life from this day on.
I keep thinking about Sir Patrick’s Conan O’Brien appearance back in 2002 in which he talked about Nemesis and how he cried when they had to shoot the goodbye scene between Jean-Luc and Riker and how he fell into Jon Frakes’ arms and how he noticed “substantial arms to fall into” and how Conan then was all like “THAT WOULD BE A WHOLE NEW KIND OF STAR TREK MOVIE” and Sir Patrick just grinned and said “Well, where no man has gone before, right?”
