Hilary Shepard Turner on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1998)

Hilary Shepard Turner (Divatox, Turbo-Space) made her second appearance on the long-running science fiction series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in 1998, reprising her role as a genetically-engineered human, Lauren during the show's final season. In the episode, "Chrysalis," Dr. Bashir's group of genetically-engineered friends smuggle their way aboard Deep Space Nine, where Bashir has been experimenting with ways to help one of them, the young Sarina, come out of her normal catatonic state. Lauren and the others in the group are overjoyed when she comes alive, speaking and sharing her knowledge with them, until side effects begin to appear. Expect to find screencaps of her appearance as Lauren from 1997 up soon on the blog.

Season 7 of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" is available on DVD
