This snipped from an interview with Wil.

7. Tell the truth - how many times did you sneak on to the set to sit in Captain Picard's chair? Too often to count. I used to wander around the whole set (all three stages) and pretend that it was real. I freakin' loved it, man. One of my favorite things to do was to sit in Engineering and watch the engine light up.

There isn't a geek alive who doesn't wish he had the same chance. Even through all of the crap you've been through, Wil, in the back of our minds every one of us, at least a little bit, wishes we were you.
