Personal Quotes (1)

[on his role as Sybok in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989)] He was a charismatic leader and he was inspired to help the whole world. He wanted to relieve all of the pain in the universe. That was extremely attractive. Then, the script, I thought it was brilliant because it confronted him with the reality of his own power: how to use it. What do you do when the choices are absolutely dilemma choices? Horns of the dilemma - when both sides are bad in some way to somebody, what do you do? It's the ultimate leadership or power question, and I thought it was written quite well.
