Interesting insight from that interview with her. Once Gene was gone that was it for her. It was also interesting that it seemed at least some of the cast was jealous of her higher salary.
That caught my attention as well. Was she really as big of a star as it implies back then. I only know her other than TNG from her days on the original Star Trek and then she joined LA Law. Like Bill said, Whoopi's was probably higher.

She was paid more than some of the main cast? Really? But she was only credited as a special guest star through the entire season. I would think it would be the same amount at most.
My guess is that since Roddenberry asked her, and the show was looking more likely to succeed, she was able to negotiate a better salary, and/or she had a better agent negotiating for her.
