TrekToday - New 'Hailing Frequencies Column

New 'Hailing Frequencies Column

The latest edition of Michelle Erica Green's weekly 'Hailing Frequencies' column is out over at Mania. This week, under the microscope are the latest episode spoilers, Trek ratings, comic mini-series 'Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Killing Shadows' and the desire to see their characters dead that several actors have expressed.

Kate Mulgrew says she wants her character to die, Robert Beltran says he expects his character to die, Garrett Wang says he's afraid his character will die. Now Jeri Ryan has become the latest Star Trek: Voyager star to suggest a gloomy fate for her alter ego.

"I think that Seven is going to be becoming more of a tragic figure as we end the series," Ryan told a Los Angeles reporter in an interview summarized on the official Star Trek site. She refused to elaborate on what she meant by "tragic," but it doesn't sound like whatever happens to Seven is directly related to the question of whether or not Voyager gets home. Ryan claims she doesn't have any idea how the season will end. "I assume that we'll get back -- that's my prediction -- but that's with no inside information."

It sounds as if life won't be boring for Seven no matter what happens. Ryan said the character would continue to develop through the final season, engaging in "some kind of experiments with her humanity and her sexuality, and trying to re-experience the emotions that she felt for the first time in Unimatrix Zero at the beginning of the season." Rumors suggest that she may become intimate with a condemned prisoner in "Repentance."
