Denise Crosby on “Skin of Evil”

[Skin of Evil] gave me more to do in 15 minutes than I had done all season…I don’t know if the show’s impact worked in the way it should have. There were just too many rumors flying around about my leaving the show. Too many people were talking. But, with a cast and crew of more than 200 people, leaks were bound to happen. Personally, I think it would have been great to just have people tune into the show and suddenly I would die. The impact would have been fantastic.

…I’m still a huge supporter of the show and I will always be a Star Trek fan. But, I watched an episode the other night and suddenly got the distinct feeling that something was missing. 

Maybe it was Tasha.
