WATCH: DS9's Chase Masterson on documentaries, singing, and more Leeta

It may have been the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation that was being celebrated at Star Trek: Las Vegas this year, but 2017 has undeniably seen Star Trek: Deep Space Nine grow more and more relevant as well.

That is one of the things I discussed with Chase Masterson (who I'm sure you remember as Leeta) when we caught up with each other at the Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas last month. We also chatted about Ira Steven Behr's upcoming DS9 documentary, What We Left Behind, as well as Chase's impressive singing career. Naturally, we also explored the topic of Star Trek: Discovery, and how Chase should at least get a cameo. I mean ... right?

Fortunately this was cut (what a relief), but I also recited the plot to "In the Cards" to Masterson, because sometimes being a fan means not having a lot of self-control. But she was great, and you should watch this video right now.
