"I can't imagine Star Trek: The Next Generation taking away.... They're really apples and oranges. Our fans love us. They may love The Next Generation, too, but there's an intrinsic loyalty to our generation because we were the originators. I understand from the fans The Next Generation has greatly improved. I'm glad to hear that."
-George Takei, formerly Sulu on Star Trek: The Next Generation, commenting on not watching much Star Trek: The Next Generation and the talk of comparing Star Trek: The Original Series to ST:TNG (Starlog Magazine #146, p.62)-
