Voyager had the Delany sisters, but Enterprise is going one better - twin butterfly dancers!
In their first major television appearance, twins Diane and Elaine Klimaszewski play the exotic dancers, who appear in an alien red-light district during the pilot, 'Broken Bow.' The twins wore full-body latex for the roles.
"We've put our skills to use in all different forms of entertainment," the Klimaszewskis said in a press release at Yahoo! News. "Enterprise gives us a chance to stretch our abilities even further, and we're pleased that our efforts have led us to share in Star Trek history."
The twins began their dance training at age four, before starting professional work at thirteen. Their dancing talents have been used in films such as 'The Wedding Planner,' 'The Flinstones: Viva Rock Vegas' and 'That Thing You Do.' TV roles include parts on General Hospital and Diagnosis Murder.
