BIOGRAPHY - JERI RYAN as Seven of Nine
Jeri Ryan portrays Seven of Nine, a human who was assimilated by the Borg as a young girl on Paramount Network Television's STAR TREK: VOYAGER. When Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) severs Seven of Nine's link to the Borg Collective, she is forced to remain on Voyager and adapt to human society. Now, as a crew member of the Starship U.S.S. Voyager, she must try to conform to Starfleet rules and regulations. "Seven of Nine is confused by the complexities of human interaction" Ryan explains. "Torn between her past as a Borg and her future as a human, Janeway plays an integral role in helping Seven of Nine adapt to her new reality."
