Wang: Voyager Set Was A Comedy Club

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Star Trek: Voyager might have been a serious show, with a starship crew lost in the Delta Quadrant desperately trying to get back home, but for the actors portraying that crew, being on the Voyager set was more akin to a being in a comedy club.

Garrett Wang, who played the quiet, unassuming Harry Kim, enjoyed working with his co-actors and enjoyed their brand of humor. “When I look back upon the experience, what stands out most are the times we Voyager actors shared on the set when the camera wasn’t rolling,” said Wang. “I’ve always said that if we kept the cameras rolling between takes, and broadcast that footage as a half-hour reality show, it would be the highest rated show on television!”

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

It has been ten years since Star Trek: Voyager has been off the air and Roxann Dawson has moved on to other things, but she considers her Star Trek experience to have been one of the better things in her life.

“[Star Trek: Voyager] was a major highlight of my life,” said Dawson. “I went into Voyager and I’d just gotten married. I came out of Voyager and I had two kids and I’d started directing. It was a great experience doing it and a great transitional experience, too. I loved it. I look back on it with great fondness.”

Ryan: Looking Forward

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Although Jeri Ryan enjoyed playing Seven of Nine, Endgame meant the end of thinking about the character as far as she was concerned.

Ryan is not the type of person to speculate on the future of characters once she is done portraying them. “That’s not the way my imagination works with the characters that I’ve played,” she said. “Seven is a character that I loved, but I don’t necessarily want to make it up in my head, what’s going on with her now. Endgame sort of ended it for me. That was the last chapter and the book closed for me at that point.”

Ryan: Voyager Pluses And Minuses

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Even though Star Trek: Voyager’s Jeri Ryan worried about typecasting as a result of working on the show, she loved her time on the show including her relationship with her co-workers, but certain elements of the series finale didn’t work for her.

When Ryan thinks about Voyager, the first thing on her mind was that catsuit. “The costume,” she said. “They didn’t let me keep the cat suit. I would have loved to have burned it; not so much the cat suit as the corset that was under it. But, no, they didn’t let me have that. I do, however, have an alcove. I figured, “That’s the least you can give me! Give me my alcove.’ So I have it in my game room.”
