"Someone once said, 'Don't try to be a great man. Just be a man. Let history make its own judgments."
- Cmdr. Riker, quoting Zefram Cochrane,
Star Trek: First Contact
...Matt Jefferies was the most decent and devoted human being on the production team. He never lost his cool, never lost his temper. His eyes got watery and he would find it difficult to speak when an over-budget show forced me to take away half his construction money. And I'd demand the impossible, that he still provide us with believable sets for less money than it should cost. He'd gulp a bit and finally say, in a very throaty voice, "Well... let me see what I can do. I'll give it a try." So Matt would try harder, and he always came through for us.------------------------
