Enterprise-D Female Security Officer

... as a security officer

Patricia Tallman is a stuntwoman and actress who appeared in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager, and in the seventh feature film Star Trek: Generations.

Outside the Star Trek universe she is best known for her role as "Lyta Alexander", a telepath, on the science fiction television series Babylon 5.

Tallman first worked with Dennis Madalone on the set of Shocker, and this led to an appearance in the TNG episode "Power Play", where she played a security officer. This single appearance was followed by a long-term relationship with Star Trek, as Tallman became part of the core stunt group. Because of her height and resemblance she doubled lead actresses Gates McFadden and Nana Visitor – as well as several guest actresses – for the next eight years, played stunt acting parts as a Romulan, Bajoran, and several other aliens, and coordinated fight scenes in such episodes as "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places".

Did You Know that the corridors of the USS Enterprise-D were actually built for the refit USS Enterprise for Phase II in the late 1970s when that series was budgeted for preproduction? They were refurbished again and again until they made their final appearance in Star Trek Generations in 1994, more than fifteen years after their inception.
