The actress who played Vixis, the first officer aboard Captain Klaa’s Klingon Bird-of-Prey in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, wanted to turn down the role at first.
Spice Williams-Crosby was disappointed when she found out that she was not going to play the love interest of Captain Kirk as she had hoped. “I was so excited because I just knew that I was finally going to play Capt Kirk’s love interest,” said Williams-Crosby. “Once I got the script I asked the casting director, ‘Could you please tell me a little bit about Vixis?’ Bill Shepard, the casting director said, ‘Well, Vixis is the first office Klingon on the Bird of Prey.’ I gasped! Oh no, not a Klingon.”
