Roxann Dawson (B'Elanna Torres) will be using both her directing and acting talents when she steps behind the camera to direct another episode of Enterprise and reprises her recurring role on the NBC drama The Lyon's Den.
Dawson starts work on her eighth Enterprise episode on November 19th, according to her official web site. This latest episode, her third this season after "Exile" and "Chosen Realm", is currently untitled, but it will likely air at the end of January or during February sweeps.
The actress is also filming two more episodes of The Lyon's Den, reprising the role of an Assistant District Attorney she played in the October 26th episode "Trick or Treat". However, the NBC drama, starring Rob Lowe as a pro-bono lawyer who has recently taken over the managing partner position in a prestigious law firm, is struggling in the ratings, and the network has put the show on hiatus for the duration of the November sweeps.
The Lyon's Den has featured several Trek alumni since its September debut. Dawson's former Voyager cast mate Robert Picardo plays the recurring role of Detective Nick Traub, who is investigating a mysterious death at the firm, and the series has included guest appearances by Steven Culp (Major Hayes), Alicia Coppola (Lieutenant Stadi) and Rick Worthy (Xindi-Sloth), to name just a few.
