Rosemary Forsyth (born 6 July 1943; age 77) is the actress who played Alzen in the Star Trek: Voyager fourth season episode "Scientific Method". She filmed her scenes on Wednesday 6 August 1997 on Paramount Stage 9 and 16 and her costume from this episode was later sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. [1]

Forsyth had previously been a regular on the soap opera Days of Our Lives from 1976 through 1980. She went on to originate the role of Sophia Capwell on another soap opera, Santa Barbara, co-starring Judith Anderson and Ray Walston, among others. However, she soon abandoned the role and was replaced by Judith McConnell, who had previously guest-starred on Star Trek: The Original Series.

She has made guest appearances on a number of other television series, including Barbary Coast and T.J. Hooker, both starring William Shatner, and in the third season Kung Fu episode "A Small Beheading", also with Shatner. She also appeared on Mannix (including one episode with Michael Bell and Jay Robinson), CHiPs (with Michael Dorn and William Schallert), Fantasy Island (starring Ricardo Montalban), Dallas (with Susan Howard and Larry Cedar), Murder, She Wrote (with Jason Evers, Lawrence Pressman, Eugene Roche, and William Windom), and the final episode of NYPD Blue (with Gordon Clapp and Bill Smitrovich).

Forsyth made her film debut in the 1965 Western Shenandoah, co-starring with Glenn Corbett and Paul Fix. For her role in this film, Forsyth earned a Golden Globe nomination as Most Promising Newcomer - Female. She went on to star or appear in such films as Texas Across the River (1966, with Michael Ansara, Andrew Prine, and George D. Wallace), One Little Indian (1973, with Morgan Woodward, Robert Pine, Andrew Prine, Paul Sorenson, and Richard Hale), Gray Lady Down (1978, with Stephen McHattie, Ronny Cox, and Robert Ito), Disclosure (1994, with Suzie Plakson, Jacqueline Kim, Jack Shearer and David Drew Gallagher playing her character's son, and John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars (2000, with Joanna Cassidy).

The majority of her movies, however, are those made for television, many of which feature fellow Star Trek alumni. These include The Brotherhood of the Bell (1970, with Robert Pine and William Smithers), City Beneath the Sea (1971, with James Darren and Whit Bissell), A Case for Murder (1993, with Eugene Roche, Samantha Eggar, Thomas Kopache, Robert DoQui, and Bruce French), Abandoned and Deceived (1995, with Bibi Besch, Gordon Clapp, Robert Hooks, and Patti Yasutake), and A Time to Remember (2003, with Louise Fletcher).
