Star Trek Voyager Producers Considered Adding Sarah Silverman As Series Regular April 26, 2011

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: History,VOY , trackback

One of the first TV roles for actress and comedian Sarah Silverman was a two-episode guest spot on Star Trek: Voyager in 1996. And according to Voyager writer/producer Bryan Fuller, there was talk about making her a regular on the series. Exclusive details below.


Sarah Silverman considered for Voyager Series Regular

Before writer/producer (and Trekkie) Bryan Fuller created shows like Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies, he got his start working on Star Trek, writing 22 episodes of DS9 and Voyager. Yesterday Fuller was apparently feeling nostalgic and posted an interesting Star Trek memory on Twitter:

LIL’ KNOWN: STAR TREK: VOYAGER producers considered making @SarahKSilverman a regular after her S3 turn as plucky present day astronomer.

Fuller was referring to actress/comedian Sarah Silverman’s two episode stint on the season 3 Star Trek: Voyager two-parter "Future’s End." Silverman played the SETI astronomer Rain Robinson, who worked with Tom Paris and Tuvok after the Voyager traveled back in time back to 1996 Los Angeles.

Star Trek: Voyager Producers considered adding Sarah Silverman (above as Rain Robinson in "Future’s End") to cast during Season 3

Fuller has provided some more details on his intriguing tweet, exclusively telling TrekMovie that the idea to bring Silverman on came from Voyager co-executive producer Brannon Braga. Fuller also confirms that Braga was thinking about Silverman joining the crew USS Voyager in her role as Rain Robinson (presumably following the crew back through time). According to Fuller:

It was Brannon’s desire to bring Rain on board because he enjoyed writing for Sarah and the freshness she brought to the show.

Silverman might have made an interesting addition to the Voyager cast. As a contemporary, she would be able to act as an audience proxy, which could help new viewers. Plus Silverman’s comic talents could have been put to use to add more humor to the series. The addition of Rain Robinson also added possibilities for a Tom Paris romance as Silverman and McNeill showed good chemistry in “Future’s End,” and that romance could have created good dramatic tension with Roxann Dawson’s B’elanna Torres.

Alas the idea was dropped, but Braga eventually did find a new actress to join the Voyager cast, with Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) who became a series regular at the beginning of season 4 in 1997. Given a choice, Ryan was likely the better addition to re-energize the series.

Jeri Ryan’s Seven of Nine was added to Voyager in Season 4

For her part, Silverman’s career did just fine without Star Trek as she has continued to work regularly in the fifteen years since Voyager, including her own Comedy Central series The Sarah Silverman Program and co-starring with Seth Rogan in the upcoming comedy Take This Waltz.

To re-familiarize  yourself with Sarah Silverman’s work on Voyager, here is a clip from "Future’s End, Part II."



1. Anon - April 26, 2011

god no good decision.

2. Chroniton - April 26, 2011

Good god, further evidence the Voyager writting team needs straight jackets.

3. Red Dead Ryan - April 26, 2011

Sarah Silverman is vastly overrated and annoying. THANK GOD THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN!

Jeri Ryan was (and definitely still is) the superior actress!

4. Gabriel Bell - April 26, 2011

Love me some Rain Robinson. She would have been a welcome addition to the Voyager crew. “Future’s End” is one of my favorite episodes. Henry Starling was a badass.

5. nikkitahil - April 26, 2011

Jeri Ryan .. any day !

6. I'm Cherokee Jack - April 26, 2011

Dodged a phaser blast here.
Unfunniest comedian around.

7. Phil - April 26, 2011

Can’t quite envision Sarah in the catsuit…

8. Tanner Waterbury - April 26, 2011

Hey you got to admit though, Silverman WAS pretty hot back then.

9. Dennis Bailey - April 26, 2011

I’m not sure that Ryan was the better choice. Certainly she worked out well. That said, her character fit quite neatly into the way Trek had been done as a TV franchise since 1987, and by the time of “Voyager” Trek was wobbling under the weight of that mannered and predictable style of characterization and storytelling.

If a character like Robinson had successfully added some kind of contemporary attitude and a spark of real humor to the show, maybe the Franchise wouldn’t had continued to slump and lose public interest until the point of near-extinction in 2005.

10. Rick Moyer - April 26, 2011

I would have loved to have Sarah on Voyager. I thought she rocked in Future’s End. Great character and a lot of fun. Too bad that didn’t happen.

11. Thorny - April 26, 2011

I don’t care much for Sarah Silverman, but I did like her Rain Robinson character and I agree she and McNeill had good chemistry together, something that was usually lacking in Voyager.

12. Magic_Al - April 26, 2011

This isn’t the worst idea ever. Silverman wouldn’t have been writing so it shouldn’t be judged on the basis of her own material (just like Guinan on TNG has nothing to do with what Whoopi Goldberg says on The View). Star Trek has had many interesting guest stars in its time travel stories and it would have been a novel idea to keep one of them around. In Voyager’s case, I’d certainly have traded Neelix for Silverman’s character.

13. MikeTen - April 26, 2011

Jeri Ryan was probably the better choice, but I think 7 of 9 should not have been in a catsuit. In my opinion she looked hotter in a starfleet uniform in the episode “Relativity” and she didn’t need any rank insignia. I like some things to be left to the imagination ;)

Rain would have been ok as a semi regular, if she was on as much as Jeri Ryan I don’t think Voyager would have made it to the end of season 4.

14. DeafPoet - April 26, 2011

Sounds good in theory, but I cringe when I think of the schlocky crap the VOY writers would have put in her mouth every week. Better that the damage was limited to the poor souls they already had on the hook. And Jeri Ryan.

15. Kathy Murray - April 26, 2011

I thought at the time, that it would be cool if they actually took someone from the past with them. I only saw any of the franchises do it once. It was on Next Gen and the crew was doing info gathering on a planet to see if the people of the planet were ready to deploy warp drive. Riker was hurt on the planet and discovered to be alien. Picard beamed down to talk to the planet leader about his missing first officer. Of course, chaos insues and the scientist that Picard & Dr. Beverly contacted becomes an ally and has dreamed of meeting aliens her whole life so, eventually, they allow her to leave with them. However, that was it. We never saw her again.It would have been cool to see her adjusting and integrating with the crew. This has nothing to do with Jeri Ryan because I loved her, I think Rain would have been fun to watch leaving on Enterprise, flirting with McNiel, being terrified by the Borg, etc.

16. VOODOO - April 26, 2011

Sure, I enjoyed looking at a supermodel in a catsuit, but I always thought that was playing to the lowest common denominator… Star Trek’s ideals are better than that and I thought it’s audience was far too intelligent to be so easily manipulated.

Jeri Ryan was fine as 7 of 9, but ST in all it’s various forms had become safe/stale at this point. Maybe Silverman could have given the series a jolt of energy and propelled the series into a different direction.

17. Deflector Dish Guy - April 26, 2011

Worst addition to a Star Trek series, ever. From her shrill, annoying voice to her obscene and uninformed vulgarities outside of the television, she’s just a disaster. Keep that screeching harpy away!

18. Zachary Fruhling - April 26, 2011

I really enjoyed her character and think she would have made a good addition to the cast. She could have added present-day commentary on the Utopian Federation mindset.

19. Wes - April 26, 2011

@ 15. They brought Gillian Taylor forward in time from the 20th to the 23rd century in STIV as well. :)

20. Daoud - April 26, 2011

Would have saved Jimmy Kimmel a lot of grief, for sure!
Dennis, glad to see you posting. I know you always followed TNG, DS9 and VOY from the writers’ point of view. I agree the character Rain Robinson was an interesting one, and might have given a bit of that Leon Rippy TNG’s “Neutral Zone” feel to Voyager. (Heck, they shoulda brought that character back in TNG… he could have been Data’s ‘family friend’.) If they’d only gone ahead and had Harry Kim die, they could have added both Rain and 7 of 9. And kept Kes.
Imagine: a Star Trek series with more regular female roles than male roles!

21. 4 8 15 16 23 42 - April 26, 2011

I hated the Future’s End episodes, and I love the Scorpion episodes, so I have to say it looks like they made the right decision (except for the atrocious catsuit). This is not to say I have a negative opinion of Silverman, per se. I think I wouldn’t have enjoyed the “cheese” factor of the present-day astronomer somehow ending up on Voyager.

That would have been like making a full series based on Star Trek: The Voyage Home, with Gillian Taylor on board the Enterprise as a permanent crew member. No thanks.

22. wolfkin - April 26, 2011

I’m gonna keep it simple and just say I’m not a fanof Sarah Silverman and while I didn’t /hate/ her on Voyager I’m pleased with how it turned out.

23. Phil - April 26, 2011

Would have to agree with the people who think she would have brought a little 20th century excitement to the show, EXCEPT that the writers would probably have given themselves two weeks to completely nuter her character. The Borg were bad-ass bad guys when they were introduced and were completely harmless by the end of the shows run….

24. Browncoat1984 - April 26, 2011

I could see her as maybe a recurring character, ala Naomi Wildman. They could still have brought on Jeri Ryan as a lead and had Silverman as a recurring. Would have much preferred her in a relationship with Paris over Torres, as there wasn’t much chemistry at all in that relationship.

25. TrekMadeMeWonder - April 26, 2011

I have to Wonder, if Jeri was never brought on-board would O be in office?
Now where was that non-interference directive when we needed it?

26. quietbynature - April 26, 2011

I really enjoyed Future’s End and thought that Rain gave it just the right touch. It would have been fun to see more of that character along the way. :)

27. Khan was Framed! - April 26, 2011


Too bad!

Sarah Silverman is hot.

This would have made Voyager better.


28. Jack - April 27, 2011

9. Agreed. It could have been interesting, although I wonder if the writers would have made it work. They abandoned all the flimsy human characters (I include Tuvok and Neelix in that bunch) really. It kind of became The Doctor and Seven Hour after Ryan joined, but was that just because the two characters were less boring (crazy Borg stories, crazy hologram stories) to write for? Both characters helped explore sone neat stuff about identity, I guess.

29. Hat Rick - April 27, 2011

Sarah Silverman is known for her comedy, I think. She is quite creative. I think some of her work, if I remember correctly, could be considered raw and a bit too “nightclub material,” but to each her own. I think she would have been great in Voyager.

30. Thogar - April 27, 2011

Voyager was bad enough without bringing the completely un-funny and vulgar Silverman on-board full-time. She has no redeeming value whatsoever.

31. sci-fi bri - April 27, 2011

in the alternate reality where sarah silverman was added, voyager sucked less.

32. Basement Blogger - April 27, 2011

Okay, I’m going to try to be objective here, since I’m Chinese American and Sarah Silverman used the “ch_nk” word as a joke. (Wiki link below; you can get the video on YouTube; type Sarah Silverman and “ch_nk”) First, I get how she would be a proxy for the audience but frankly if you’re watching the fourth version of TV Star Trek and season three of Voyager, you should get it by now. Sarah would have ended up as annoying as Dr. Smith from “Lost in Space.”

However, Sarah is tremendous talent. She’s very funny. Love watching her on Bill Maher’s shows. And she is beautiful.

So what was her controversial comment? On Conan O’ Brien’s Late Night show, she told him how she would get out of jury duty. Told to write something inappropriate she said, ” like ‘I hate chinks.'” She then said that she didn’t want to sound racist so she said she would write, “”I love chinks’ – and who doesn’t?” Okay, I get the joke. It is satire. She’s making fun of racism, primarily because I know she is not a racist. That’s because a proud Aryan German woman as she would not disrespect people of color. (That’s a joke, Put down the bat’leths.)

One last thing. Hail Voyager. She ws lost in the Dellta quadrant but a return to a theme of Star Trek, space exploration.

LINK) Sarah’s wiki and controversial remark about her love for my kind. Sarah, we heterosexual Chinese males love you too. (That’s kind of a joke. Drop the disrupters guys , okay? At least set them to stun.)

33. Jack - April 27, 2011

It would have been entertaining if she’d just played herself and written her own lines, and maybe everyone else’s.


Sarah Silverman: When God gives you AIDS – and God does give you AIDS, by the way – make lemonAIDS.

Neelix: I had no right to push that (hair) pasta in your lap.
Tom Paris: Well – think of it this way: it saved me from having to eat it.

34. Christopher Roberts - April 27, 2011

I had quite a crush on her back in the day, I don’t mind telling you.

Too bad she was fΏ©king Matt Damon. :)

35. CmdrR - April 27, 2011

I wonder whether, for Braga, it came down to choosing between: The Doctor’s mobile emitter or the horse-faced gal who talked about mud flaps.

I’m glad they chose the emitter.

In her defense, she was the 2nd least funny comedian on Trek… after Joe Piscopo.

Now, the war between Silverman and Kimmel was FUNNY!

36. CmdrR - April 27, 2011

34 — Thanks for the reminder.

37. Hugh Hoyland - April 27, 2011

Hmm not sure about this actually. While Im not a big time fan of her crude humor, she might have brought some much needed “edge” to the show (keeping in mind if she would have had some input in that is) Still glad 7 of 9 came aboard though, dispite the obvious reasons why it drew me in, her two beautiful eyes…and acting skills.

38. Robert H. - April 27, 2011

Nothing against Rain Robinson, but bringing her back to the future would sound like a rip off of Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home. Besides, I doubt Captain Braxton would let her stay on the ship, even though they left the Doc’s mobile emitter.

39. Damian - April 27, 2011

I never gave the idea much thought. I thought the character was fine for the episode and agree the chemistry with her and Paris was good. But I just assumed all along she would have to stay behind. I don’t see why, though, why we would have a Robinson vs Seven. It certainly was possible to keep the two.

12–Have to agree re: Neelix. I liked Voyager, but of all the characters, his grated on me the most. There were only two or three times I thought his character was ok. One was early on when Voyager stopped to explore an anomaly and he started getting annoyed that every time they found something, they had to stop and look. The other was when they brought him back to life and he was bothered by the fact that he did not go to the afterlife. It disturbed him to the point he considered suicide. I thought that was actually a powerful Neelix moment (one of the very few on the series). I was actually glad he stayed behind in the Delta Quadrant.

40. GilmourD - April 27, 2011

It makes me sad to think that she was ever a guest star to begin with… She and Andy Dick have to be two of the most obnoxious, unfunny people on Earth.

41. Brett Campbell - April 27, 2011

I love Sarah — gorgeous, funny, kooky, and a New England girl!

42. Pat Payne - April 27, 2011

32 — “That’s because a proud Aryan German woman as she would not disrespect people of color. (That’s a joke, Put down the bat’leths.)”

Umm, you do realize she’s Jewish, right?

43. Pat Payne - April 27, 2011

Oh and BTW, Although she was cute, I agree that it was probably a better idea to leave her off. (Though I wasn’t sold on 7 of 9 either, outside of my being an adolescent male at the time…)

44. Dr. Image - April 27, 2011

Nothing would’ve fixed the crap writing on that show.

45. - April 27, 2011

This was part of the downfall of trek. When they started basing characters on trekkies, loading the shows with geeks.

It didn’t work with jaja binks either when Lucas tried it.

seven of nine was a great character and whatever anyone thought about Voyagers writing their Borg episodes were vastly superior to Next Generations, including First Contact.

46. Captain Ransom - April 27, 2011

“Ryan was likely the better addition to re-energize the series”

wow are you kidding me? seven of nine was one of the absolute worst characters in trek history. it’s painful to watch epidodes focused on her. she is exactly the kind of character that turns people away from star trek – boring, rude, typical IT nerd superiority complex. she was a character that no one could relate to = TOTAL FAIL.

silverman would have been the exact opposite.

47. Tonester777 - April 27, 2011

Sarah would be good on Star Trek Enterprise. :-)

48. Desstruxion - April 27, 2011

Not a big Silverman fan but the episodes were pretty good.

49. Anthony Thompson - April 27, 2011

Love Sarah! See her movie, “Jesus is Magic”. It’s hilarious! Seven of Nine wasn’t a credible character.

50. Dennis Bailey - April 27, 2011

Yeah, Silverman’s a great talent and cute to boot.

51. denny cranium - April 27, 2011

Sarah Silverman hot?
She reminds me of that annoying princess on What Not To Wear- (its a deal I make with my wife- I watch TLC with her she watches Fringe BBT with me)
Come to think of it she (Silverman) came across as a spoiled princess as well.
Jeri Ryan was the better choice. Yes she woild have looked better in a Starfleet un iform

52. Simon - April 27, 2011

I love how everyone is judging a potential Rain Robinson character based upon Silverman’s *CURRENT* status and not what she was in 1996: an unknown.

So those pretending to know it would have turned out horribly because they compare it to her current projects (those within the last few years) really have no idea what they were talking about.

53. Bobby - April 27, 2011

I am not sure if it was her acting, the dialog she was given, or both, but she came across as kind of dorky to me. It seems like whenever the Trek writers tried to write “present day” dialog it always came across to me as corny.

I think Rain Robinson would have gotten old fast if she’d become a regular.

54. T'Cal - April 27, 2011

Her career peaked on VOY and it’s been downhill ever since…

55. Dr. Cheis - April 27, 2011

Although I generally think Sarah Silverman is a little annoying, I liked her character in Voyager, and I’ve often thought it would be really neat if they had a 20th century human aboard that ship (though how that human would have gotten there would be a bit complicated…).

I’m sure she would have been a better choice than the Borg children though. No offense to the actors who played them, but we already had Tuvok and Seven, we didn’t need any more emotionless characters.

56. Robin Raianiemi - April 27, 2011

Well, they had great success in STAR TREK VI: THE VOYAGE HOME with Dr. Gillian Taylor, who was never heard from again (not even in any of the novels I’ve read). I think having a 20th (or 21st) century character in STAR TREK’s present day would’ve been a great idea.

And there also was that “Khan” fellow.

57. Christopher Roberts - April 27, 2011

47. Actually I’d have loved that. Something that series lacked with the level of humour, the previous ones did. ENT tried but it often fell flat and felt demeaning to its central character. Odd considering Bakula often wore female clothing for QL and got away it.

58. Jack - April 27, 2011

Hey, why stop (with characters from the past) with the 20th century? If only they’d kept Mark Twain on board the Enterprise-D for the rest of the run.

I also would have dug it if they’d taken The Rock on board after that episode with the title that sort of rhymed with the c-word.

BTW, are posters to this site more forgiving of Voyager than, say, everyone else?

59. "Check the Circuit!" - April 27, 2011

@ 56

If you can find a copy of Debt of Honor…it is definitely worth the effort. It’s a graphic novel from DC written by Chris Claremont and beautifully illustrated by Adan Hughes (before he became focused on “Hot Girl” covers…not that there’s anything wrong with that). It takes place shortly after the events of ST:IV and she is in the framing elements of a story spanning the career of James T. Kirk.

One of the best ST comics EVER.

60. "Check the Circuit!" - April 27, 2011

@ 42

Her being Jewish is what made Basement Bloggers comment a joke.

61. sean - April 27, 2011


You’re kidding, right? Voyager’s Borg episodes were *terrible*. They singlehandedly ruined the scariest bad guys around and made them less competent than the Pakleds. By the end of Voyager’s run, the Borg were about as intimidating as The Grand Nagus.

62. Ixnae - April 27, 2011

No offense to Ms. Ryan, but the addition “Boob of Nine” was a pretty juvenile attempt to boost Voyager’s ratings through sex appeal.

Her character didn’t add anything to Trek that wasn’t already covered by Spock, Data, Odo,and even Hugh.

63. Neumann - April 27, 2011

Well, I have two thoughts: Seven was fine, just overused, since she was just thrust on screen so often. It just seeded resentment.

Rain would have been interesting (I’d be more interested in seeing her as Gary Seven’s assistant in “Assignment Earth” as she was in one of the novels), but having a contemporary on-ship full time would be an interesting change. But what would she do? Would she rock her own clothes or funky Federation fashion? The idea of where her arcs could go will occupy my thoughts for a while.

64. Rah - April 27, 2011

he’s says:”its a joke”
his whole point was that she is Jewish…
I think…

65. Phil - April 27, 2011

63. You illustrate a point. The writers on this show could never seem to figure out where they wanted to go. All the characters seemed to go through the same development committee, with some variation for gender – hair up, hair down, strong, sexy, conflicted, mature. It sounds cliched to say a cast of characters hit stride – in my opinion they did on TNG, DS9, and we saw some hints of that on Enterprise, but it never happened on Voyager.

66. richpit - April 27, 2011

I think Sarah / Rain would have been a much better addition to the show then 7 of 9 was. 7 of 9 was simply T&A to add male viewership. Did I mind it? No. But it didn’t really help the show any.

67. Bucky - April 27, 2011

^ Seven started as T&A but Jeri Ryan and the writers really fleshed out the character to make her the most interesting member of the crew, next to the Doctor.

As for Raine, I thought she was great in the episode when I watched it in 96, and re-watching it recently Silverman does add a lot of energy to the role that could have been just wallpaper. but, honestly, the character could only be as bedazzled by outer space for, like, two seasons and then, what, she’d get kicked down to Nelix’s co-chef? There’s only so much you can do with that. With Seven, they really opened up the possibilities with the character.

That being said, Silverman was great in the role and Future’s End is one of Voyager’s better episodes. If only for the appearance of Crazy Hobo Braxton.

68. Bucky - April 27, 2011

As for Seven, it wasn’t just a riff on Data/Spock, the better aspect of her character was her being stubborn and yet sympathetic all at the same time. She could bounce from cold, machine like precision to downright scared and it still fit. It wasn’t so much as Seven discovering humanity as it was how she tried to process the humanity that was already there.

69. Basement Blogger - April 27, 2011

@ 42 64

I said at post 32, ” That’s because a proud Aryan German woman as she would not disrespect people of color. (That’s a joke, Put down the bat’leths.)”

Yeah, it’s a joke. You see she’s Jewish. And Aryan is the ideal Nazi. Get it? I’m mixing racial stereotypes of opposite ends. Ehhh…. Never mind back to the day job.

When Sarah says she loves “ch_nks”, I also joked that hereosexual Chinese men love her too. Okay, that may not be correct. Sarah might be too WASPish for some Chinese males. :-)
However, this Chinese American male loves Sarah Silverman.

Another funny Sarah Silverman video… Warning, it’s pro-Obama.

Check out Sarah in her video to get Jews to fly back to Florida to vote for Obama. (2008) Ignore pro-Obama stuff if you hate the guy and watch the comedy. And check out her anti-pc jokes about black men and elderly Jewish women. Boy, Obama must be saying “With friends like these….”

70. Jack - April 27, 2011

69, an arguably milder version of your joke would be calling a Canadian American.

71. Canon Schmanon - April 27, 2011

I have a pretty low opinion of Voyager, so Silverman wouldn’t have been so bad. She’s more annoying in her own venues, but she was OK in Voyager because she wasn’t being herself. It would have been an interesting perspective.

Problem is, she sounds kind of like Pee Wee Herman here. She wouldn’t have been the über femme that Jeri Ryan was, but why couldn’t we have had both? If I had to choose, then of course it’s Ryan. My God, she practically was the only thing worth watching on that show.

72. Jordan - April 27, 2011

haha, that would have been so bad!

73. Al Levy - April 27, 2011


Making a long story short, Rain Robinson lived on in the Eugenics Wars novels, eventually assisting Roberta Lincoln after Gary Seven retired.

There you go.

74. - April 27, 2011

Seven of Nine was one of the best trek characters ever.

It did boost the ratings considerably when she came into the show and though some think it may have been about her sex appeal that would only have lasted a couple of episodes had the character not been solid.

What made Seven of Nine great was that she was the only character that had any real journey over the rest of the series.

It is what made Spock interesting. Data was compelling as we watched him develop. It was only when the payoff saw him act a fool that we lost interest.

I know some don’t appreciate her, some don’t like the new trek movie either but you five guys are always going to be the minority. In this case because you are wrong.

75. Holger - April 28, 2011

I like Sarah Silverman. This would have improved that Voyager show a lot. On the other hand, Silverman might have been waisted on this lame show. I would have preferred to see her on Enterprise.

76. New Horizon - April 28, 2011

She would have been great on the show.

77. AdamTrek - April 28, 2011

Maybe if Sarah Silverman was on Voyager, it would have ended up making her a little more respectable in the long run.


78. Rastaman - April 28, 2011

While I don’t like her comedy that much, I probably would have enjoyed Voyager a little if she had been part of the cast.

79. Anthony Thompson - April 28, 2011


Who are the “five guys” you are referring to, homeboy?

80. PromoBoy - April 29, 2011

whiny Princess…
or Borg badass.
Tough call.

81. Alex - April 30, 2011

Thank God they changed their minds. Sarah Silverman is talentless, unfunny, and completely annoying.

82. Rixtertech - September 3, 2011

As I type this I am watching the Voyager episodes on NetFlix, sitting a few miles away from Sarahs birthplace here in New Hampshire. I am solidly in the camp of those who find SS as unpleasant as an awake endoscopy, but think she could have been given a few more episodes on Voyager. After a decent span of time spent driving Tuvok into uncontrollable fits of rage with her rapier-tongued derision, giving Tom and Kes both a good case of pubic lice and getting caught stealing Janeways best silk underwear, we could have enjoyed watching her toothy grin disappear into the maw of some squamous mutant horror. She probably would have enjoyed the heck out of the whole gig, and we could enjoy watching her grisly end in her farewell episode. A win for all! is represented by Gorilla Nation.
