The end of Voyager

Is it too soon to feel a bit of a loss for Voyager?

Picture A loss of going to the set every day? Well letís have a Martini.

I donít know if I feel relief. I felt a great sadness when I watched the finale. Strange. I felt Iíd done all that, said goodbye to everybody. Of course it lacked a ritual, there should have been a clearer ritual with which to finalise it. It was very brutal, the end, for me, the lights literally went out on the bridge, and had Bob Carter not come in and embraced me I donít know what I would have done. They were dismantling the set as I walked off. Quite - quite stunning, you know.

But I think it was watching the finale with my husband and my step-daughters and crying - not, obviously, at the episode itself but at the goodbye that was experiencing when I saw everybodyís face on the screen. These are people with whom I was intensely intimate for seven years. This is a very complicated emotional dynamic for me. I think that you donít really say goodbye.
