STAR TREK VOYAGER stuck Jeri Ryan and her big tits in a skin - tight suit in the show after Season 3 as the 36DD drone of Borg Seven of Nine ( or Sex with Nine ). It´s no surprise that it´s the role she´s best known for.
Jeri was one of three reasons to watch the show, and I´m not counting her awesome twin torpedoes and the holographic Doctor as three.
I´m also putting half - klingon sexbomb B´Elanna Torres on the list.
Number 13 on THE 50 SEXIEST SCI FI COSTUMES
Borg - couture is clearly heavily influenced by the science fiction classic Buck Rogers In The Twenty - Fifth Century. Ryan’s ‘ orphaned ’ spandex - clad demi - alien Seven Of Nine was usually rated 10 by the male fans that the character was clearly put in to attract after a ratings dip.
Ryan only took the role at the fifth attempt by producer Jeri Taylor. A certain contingent of Trekkers took umbrage at the inclusion of a crew-member so overtly sexy in the usually glam-free Trek-verse. The rest of us set our VCRs as we fell for the oldest trick in the book.
Jeri Ryan discussed the costume with Trek Today : The whole ' sex symbol ' or ' babe ' thing doesn't bother me. It's the costume that I wear on the show which is ... a little snug, shall we say, and doesn't leave a whole lot to the imagination. I don't have a problem with it because of the way this character's been written, how intelligent she is and how strong she is and what a wonderful female portrayal she is.
Although there is lot of booty in Star Trek : Uhura in the original series,
all of Kirk´s girls which he just seemed to find on any planet he was on,
Tasha Yar in Next Generation got android Data to turn on his sex files,
there were also Deanna Troy and Beverly Crusher in Next Generation,
bajoran chief of security Major Kira on Star Trek - Deep Space Nine,
Jadzia Dax on Deep Space Nine ( who had been a man in her last life ),
Ezri Dax on Deep Space Nine ( she was the next incarnation of Jadzia ),
then the former borg drone Seven of Nine on Star Trek - Voyager
or vulcan crew member T´Pol on Enterprise played by Jolene Blalock.
Really, someone at starfleet has a knack for picking hot chicks.
Man, I´d love to do a sandwich with T´Pol and Sex with Nine during the time of Pon Farr. Between the insatiable vulcan nymphomanic sex addict
and the inexhaustible cyborg sexdoll you could probably wear yourself out for all time. Not that anybody would complain about going out like that.
Coming back to Jeri Ryan she didn´t get naked on STAR TREK VOYAGER although there were some scenes in which she was supposedly naked we just didn´t get to see it since there was no full frontal nudity involved.
The best we got were some scenes where we could see her back - but not her butt like with Jolene Blalock in the unforgettable sex massage scenes.
( go to Jolene Blalock´s solo post to read more about her sex massages )
I heard that Kate Mulgrew was constantly bitching because she didn´t get the attention she thought she deserved as star of the show. Okay, let us think about this, there are two women on the show : one a bitchy old broad and one a smoking hot sexborg. Hmm, who gets more attention ?
And let´s be realistic : nobody likes Captain Janeway. Not because she´s a woman. But because she´s frigging crazy. With the other Captains you knew where you stood. Kirk always broke the rules and his crew was the most important thing for him. Picard always obeyed the rules - but his crew was more important. Captain Sisko bended the rules on occassion because he was first stuck out in the middle of nowhere and then he became an emissary of the gods. And in the end he became a god. But Janeway ? One day the rules are the most important thing, the next day she couldn´t care less because it´s Wednesday or that time of the month.
And she didn´t care about her crew at all. They could all kick the bucket as far as she cared. With her as captain your f - word - ed ! Just ask Seven of Nine, she was told by Janeway that she´s nothing but a toaster.
Of course Jeri starred in other tv shows like BOSTON LEGAL for which she did a supersexy photoshoot and even had a scene in which she undressed till she only had a shirt on - which showed much of her fantastic breasts.
I really was lucky to catch that episode because after ALLY MC BEAL I really stay away from courtroom drama series. And I prefer to watch James Spader in THE BLACKLIST. What I did see was the TWO AND A HALF MAN episode with Jeri. In the episode she plays an old flame of Charlie Sheen who starts a relationship with his brother but he is too obsessed with what happened when she was with Charlie - so he ruins it. Poor guy, I bet she would have spoiled him for all other women on earth.
I also caught the episode QUEEN FOR A DAY from WAREHOUSE 13 where Jeri Ryan had a small guest role as Peter Lattimer´s ex wife Amanda.
Kate Mulgrew who played Captain Janeway on STAR TREK VOYAGER was also on the show as Peter´s Mom ( kind of a reunion here although I´m not so sure Kate was so happy to see Jeri again since she was always bitching about Jeri stealing the attention of the viewers away from her ) which didn´t exactly made it easier to watch the show. Not that it isn´t difficult enough to watch the show as they kept changing the time the show was on, then it was put on a different channel and now they are doing marathons. Some day I´ll buy all the seasons and binge watch it.
What I didn´t watch was the O.C. even if was supposed to be for comic people so I didn´t see Jeri in it. And I somehow missed DRACULA 2000 which was probably as bad as it sounds so I might have lucked out on this one and the only good parts were the ones with a very busty Jeri Ryan.
I also don´t watch BODY OF PROOF, another tv series where Jeri Ryan appears but I´m already watching too many crime series as it is. Although judging by the scene from the episode FALLEN ANGEL I may reconsider.
Other shows where Jeri Ryan appeared include THE SENTINEL, WHO`S THE BOSS, MATLOCK and LEVERAGE. I guess that´s everything covered.
Oh, I almost forgot, Seven of Nine was in the only STAR TREK VOYAGER comic I bought called FALSE COLORS. It was a prestige format one shot from Wildstorm and Jim Lee did the variant cover ( I know it´s the variant cover because it was almost impossible to find a picture ).
The story was written by Star Trek novelist Nathan Archer and the interior art was done by Jeff Moy ( and possibly Phil Moy on backgrounds ) and W. C. Carani, who had a lengthy run on DC´s threeboot LEGIONNAIRES book.
I don´t remember much about the story so it can´t be that impressive but it wasn´t my favorite Star Trek crew either. I only bought it based on the art and I don´t have any idea where it is at the moment so I can´t check how well the comic has held up. But I know I must have it somewhere.
There are no links for this post except this one that I just had to post. I didn´t make this up : 7 bizarre facts about Deanna Troy´s cleavage .
And with that we come to the video section of this post. Since the number of animated GIFs and pictures I can put on a post are limited here´s a video with Seven of Nine´s best Star Trek Voyager moments.
Here is a video full of aliens and earthlings getting busy Star Trek style.
And since it´s Jeri Ryan´s birthday, here she is on one of my favorite talkshows, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. I have discovered this show in the last few years only so I haven´t seen this clip myself.
And here´s yet another appearance of Jeri Ryan on the show.
This might be the best clip ever from Craig Ferguson´s Late Late Show. For those of you who don´t know, there´s a robot prop on the show called Geoff Peterson and the guy who does the robot´s voice does a spot on Morgan Freeman imitation. So guess who was on the show one day....
