Canon Edit

Is this name canon? -- Captain Mike K. Barteltalk 22:34, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Harry had a big ole discussion on it on another page that I am sure is linked here. Let me check here for the folks...oh yeah, Talk:Unnamed humanoids. -- Alan del Beccio 22:37, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Moved from Talk:Unnamed humanoids Edit


She has a name!

This alien female is actually called Worene. She was played (and named) by stuntwoman Paula Crist (IMDb). Here's a nice quote from TrekBBS, by Therin (Google cache, disable Javascript to read):

Bjo is never actually visible onscreen (but in white in still shots). Mrs Wise is in a brown uniform. Susan Sackett is easy to spot. She's the tiniest figure (in a similar white outfit to Bjo's) up on the second level balcony.
Bjo Trimble's book, "On The Good Ship Enterprise", discusses the making of this scene in good detail, as does Dennis Fischer's two-parter in the old "Enterprise Incidents" pro fanzine. Off the top of my head, the close up male Vulcan is Scott Dwek, one of Grace Lee Whitney's sons. (IIRC, he's the one who's a pilot and used to give annual flight tests to Christopher Reeve.) The female Vulcan is a fan named JoAnn Christy. In that same front line, Bantam ST novelist Kathleen Sky is easy to find, as is fan-turned-media-journalist, Dennis Fischer.
The only rec deck fan to get a screen credit is Paula Crist. She can be seen fleetingly in a wolfish female alien makeup on the rec deck. Playing her own creation, called "Worene", Paula originally tested as bridge alien (the part going to Rhaandarite ensign, Billy Van Zandt). Gene Roddenberry insisted Worene was such a great alien she should at least appear on screen. Paula went on to become a successful stuntwoman in Hollywood and even played the baby brontosaurus in "Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend"!

As Therin says, the story of Worene is told in Bjo Trimble's book On the Good Ship Enterprise.

Since we use Bob Fletcher's notes and other obscure data points for some other aliens, I'm pretty sure we can use this name for Memory Alpha. -- Harry t 10:12, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, great! With this much info, its almost worth having a whole page for this character. Zsingaya Talk 10:24, 7 Nov 2005 (UTC)
