In her role as ex-Maquis
rebel and half-human, half-Klingon Lieutenant BElanna Torres on Star
Trek: Voyager, Roxann Dawson has spent the past five years following
Captain Kathryn Janeways orders while learning how to conduct herself as
a Starfleet officer.
A New Task
Back in October, the
actress had the chance to sit in the captains chair when guest-starring
as United States Navy officer Commander Keagle on UPNs popular Time
travel series Seven Days. According to her, cruising the waters off the
coast of Vancouver, British Columbia was a bumpy but welcome respite from
warping through the Delta Quadrant.
Im used to
working on a soundstage where everything is calm there is no weather in
Space and suddenly I was out on a naval vessel in the middle of a
storm, says Dawson. So that took some getting used to, but I still
enjoyed myself. It was nice not having to wear the Klingon make-up that I do on
Voyager. That allowed me a great deal of creative freedom that I
havent felt in a while as an actress.
make-up, Keagle is quite unlike BElanna in that she comes from a
different background and has her own life and set of goals. Yes, shes a
military officer and the only female on an all-male ship, so I suppose some of
the job-related challenges she faces might be similar to those BElanna
experiences on Voyager. However, I still feel that there are more differences
than similarities between them and thats part of what made Keagle so
refreshing to play.
In the second-season
Seven Days episode Saving the Admiral, Frank Parker (Jonathan
LaPaglia) is reunited with his old flame Commander Keagle during a Back-Step
mission in which he must undo the misguided handiwork of a psychotic Joint
Chief of Staff who is aboard her ship. The story is written in such a way
that the relationship between Keagle and Parker is hinted at but not actually
spelt out in any great detail, notes Dawson.
