Jolene Blalock as T’Pol Stunning model and actress, Jolene Blalock, was a popular addition to the Star Trek: Enterprise cast. Taking on the role of Vulcan first officer, T’Pol, was “a dream come true” for Blalock, who said she was in a state of bliss every day she went to work on-set. In an interview with The Express on Sunday, Blalock explained: “There's also a sense of immortality that the show gives you, that you're working on something that will never die, that your contribution will last forever.” Star Trek wasn’t Blalock’s only dalliance into the sci-fi world. She has appeared in Stargate SG-1 and Legend of the Seeker, among others, and has enjoyed regular appearances in film and on television.
Ethan Phillips as Neelix You probably instantly recognize Ethan Phillips as Neelix, since he played the lovable alien for the seven seasons of Star Trek: Voyager. However, Phillips actually got his start in Star Trek back in 1990, taking the single-episode role of Dr. Farek in an episode of Next Generation, titled, "Menage a Troi." Phillips must’ve been overjoyed to go from this one-off role to taking on a regularly appearing character; and a popular one at that. Since leaving Neelix behind, Phillips put a lot of his time into the theater, though he did dabble in films and a few other television roles. Phillips also popped back up in more one-off Star Trek roles, and his voice can be heard in both Star Trek and Star Wars video games (seems he’s happy to bat for both teams).
Terry Farrell as Jadzia Dax Jadzia Dax has got to be one of the coolest character creations of the Star Trek franchise. The beautiful science officer is a union of two separate consciousnesses. Her outer form is the host, a young female of the Trill species. Melded to her is a wise and ancient symbiont. The two are harmoniously merged with a personality reflective of each of their existences and access to the knowledge of both. When it was time for Farrell to leave the show, at the close of season six, the writers came up with a brilliant way to execute it. The host was killed off, leaving Farrell free to go, while the symbiont was saved and transferred into a new host. This maneuver allowed actress, Nicole DeBoer, to seamlessly take over as host while Terry Farrell retired from the spotlight to dedicate more time to her family.
Denise Crosby as Lt. Tasha Yar Like Rick Worthy, Denise Crosby played more than one role during her time with Star Trek. The role you most likely recognise her for is that of Lt. Tasha Yar in Star Trek: The Next Generation, season one. However, Crosby popped up again in later seasons, this time playing, funnily enough, her former character’s daughter, Commander Sela. After finally saying goodbye to Star Trek, Crosby enjoyed a prolific career in film and television with so many appearances it’s difficult to count She’s popped up in everything from The Drew Carey Show to Mad Men and even produced and starred in the 1997 documentary, Trekkies.
Gates McFadden as Dr. Beverly Crusher While Gates McFadden has an impressive number of credits to her name, she is best known, and most loved, for her portrayal of Dr. Beverly Crusher in the Star Trek series and four of its films. When her time in the Star Trek universe was up, McFadden never wanted for acting work, taking roles in a number of films and TV shows. What you might find more surprising is, she also turned her skills to teaching. McFadden has graced the halls of a number of prestigious academies and universities, including Harvard, Purdue and the University of Pittsburgh, the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and Hamburg’s Stella Academy. She is one talented lady!
