If you’re a die-hard Trekkie reading then no doubt you already know what your favorite characters are up to now. However for those of us who aren’t a huge part of the ‘Live Long and Prosper’ era, this is more of a trip down memory lane. With a new film adaptation to drool over, we decided to roll back and look at the original greats that made the science fiction scene what it is today.
B’Elanna Torres – Roxann Dawson
Let’s start this list with a bang – B’Elanna Torres was the half Human/half-Klingon engineer who dominated Star Trek: Voyager in all seven seasons. Furthermore while on the show, Dawson even made her directorial debut. Since the show’s end, she has focused her career as a director – having directed episodes of Charmed, The O.C., Lost, The Mentalist, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. so far. Plus, she’s produced shows such as Scandal, Crossing Jordan and Cold Case.
Ensign Ro Laren – Michelle Forbes
First things first, Michelle Forbes’s portrayal of Ensign Ro Laren is still considered as the second strongest female character in the franchise – now that’s incredible. Since her Star Trek days, she has gone on to star in many film and television roles, which include the likes of 24, True Blood, The Killing, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
