Star Trek: Picard star Jeri Ryan discusses Seven of Nine’s enduring legacy and the origin of the “hottest lesbian couple” in the franchise’s history.
Ryan made her debut over two decades ago as the former Borg drone Seven on season four of Star Trek: Voyager. The character quickly became one of the long-running sci-fi franchise’s top fan-favourites for her fierce attitude and dynamic storyline.
Now, Ryan is returning to the role once again for the second season of Star Trek: Picard. In the first season of the show, fans watched as a beautiful romance formed between Seven and Jean-Luc Picard’s former first officer commander Raffi Musiker (Michelle Hurd).
