Sue Henley end credits

Henley in the end credits of "Year of Hell"

Ensign Brooks was portrayed by Sue Henley throughout the run of Star Trek: Voyager. Henley was also the main stand-in for Kathryn Janeway actress Kate Mulgrew and previously appeared as a command officer in the second and third season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Henley was credited as "Ensign" in the end credits of the episode "Darkling". Later, in "Year of Hell", she was credited as "Ensign Brooks" and had one word of dialogue, "Seven". The call sheet for this day of filming, Thursday 14 August 1997, is also listing her as "Ensign Brooks" with a makeup call at 8:00 am and a set call at 10:00 am. Because Henley filmed her scene on Paramount Stage 9 and had to prepare for this appearance, fellow stand-in Susan Lewis worked as stand-in for Mulgrew that day.

According to an interview with Sue Henley, she did little background work on the first season because of her strong likeness to Kate Mulgrew. Occasionally, she wore a wig, which she described as a "hideous black dead-rat-looking wig." [1]
