Interviews | Matt Jefferies
A Hilton in space

Do you watch the new series? The Next Generation and Voyager and Deep Space Nine?

Picture No. I went to the first movie. I was invited to the screening. I fell asleep. John Dwyer noticed it from across the screening room and said, "Matt, wake up." Fortunately nobody else in there knew me.

Gene asked me how I liked the show, and I said that he had taken the bridge of my ship and turned it into the lobby of the Hilton. And I have just never watched any of them since. Iím lost.

Did you mind that your set had become more like a luxury liner?

Yeah, it bugged me a little bit because my logic was blown out of the box. But it was a different deal and a different time. They had requirements to meet and that was their answer to it. I am pleased that certain elements have dragged through and still show.
