- 16 Years after Star Trek Voyager ends, what did you miss?
Tim: Obviously I miss the steady work, and I very much missed the people I worked with.
- Tim you still work together with other former Star Trek Actors like Marina Sirtis , Armin Shimerman and Manu Intiraymi in "5th Passenger" How was it work again with "old" friends?
Tim: It's always cool to work with former cast mates, and they are all just as skilled and easy to work with as before.
- Star Trek starts these days with an New Series , "Star Trek Discovery". Did you watch the show?
Tim: Nope. I don't plan to subscribe to it.
- In Star Trek nothing is impossible, Timelines or wormhole. Will you work for Discovery as Tuvok or an New character when they ask?
Tim: It all depends on the producers of the show. I'm sure they are barraged with questions about seeing the already established Trek characters. Who knows what they will do.
- And projects, what are you working on now after Star Trek Renegades and 5th Passenger?
Tim: I just finished guest star appearances on a few TV shows, and I'm now developing and planning to direct 2 to 3 feature film projects, as well as a possible series on the streaming site, Funny or Die.
