No one can deny the sheer genius of Star Trek – especially when you’re a die-hard Trekkie. Now that there’s a film adaptation taking the world by storm, it made sense for us to step back and reminisce over the original cast. Take a look at some of our favorites who made Star Trek the success that it is today – watch out though, the ‘Live Long and Prosper’ nostalgia might just have you re-watching the show, like yesterday.
B’Elanna Torres – Roxann Dawson
Let’s begin with B’Elanna Torres, the half Human/half-Klingon engineer, who dominated Star Trek: Voyager for all seven seasons. While on the show, Roxann Dawson even made her directorial debut. After the show, her passion for directing only grew – which is why she went on to direct episodes of The O.C., Lost, The Mentalist, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Recently though, she has even gone on to produce some of the hottest shows such as Scandal.
