Well, this looks interesting>> EWR is Eugene Roddenberry (Majel and Gene's son, who's pretty much taken over the family business.)

Q: Majel, you've brought us "Earth: Final Conflict" and "Andromeda". What's next on your agenda?
—Jason D.

EWR: Questor.

MB: Ah, I love it. Gene said that there's probably more material that could be used for Questor than there was in Star Trek. So, wow, how was that possible? But no one has really gone in there and developed it, until now.

EWR: Herb Wright [former TNG producer] has optioned the rights and there's a team putting it together right now and they are moving forward toward production.

MB: That's the nice thing about science fiction, you can always come back to it. It's never outdated.

And, sadly, it looks like La Mage has hung up her traveling shoees for a while. (So glad I saw her those six or seven times back in the 80s and 90s, when I had the chance!)

Q: I've missed seeing you at conventions for the last few years. Do you have any plans to attend any conventions in the near future?
—Marsha W.

MB: I did so many conventions for so many years, that I just really got tired. And I finally found an opportunity and a way that I could say no for a period of time, and then after that I just never accepted anything. I don't have any burning desire to get back into it and do it either. There's too much travelling, and it's too hard on me. I used to kind of hate that, the travelling part. God, you go out on Friday evening and you get on a plane on Sunday evening and come back, and go right on to the next one, and then the next one and the next one, and I'm too old for that. (Laughs)
