Elizabeth Dennehy Interview. 
  
Elizabeth Dennehy played Commander Shelby in two of the most important episodes in all of Star Trek, "The Best of Both Worlds" and "The Best of Both Worlds: Part II." This was one of her first TV roles and she made an immediate impression with fans for portraying Commander Shelby as an ambitious, no-nonsense expert on the Borg who frequently clashes with Commander Riker. 

In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Justin Oser, Amy Nelson, and Richard Marquez interview Elizabeth Dennehy about playing Commander Shelby in "The Best of Both Worlds" two-parter, including how she prepared for the role, what it was like to work with the cast, and which scene was the most difficult to do. We also discuss how the reception of Shelby has changed over time, her convention appearances, her many non-Star Trek roles, and her father - actor Brian Dennehy.
