'Star Trek: Voyager' Actress Jennifer Lien Arrested For Indecent Exposure
Like me, you're probably assuming this headline can't be as bad as the actual story. I clicked on it, assuming she ended up having a wardrobe malfunction at a Starbucks or something. Instead, I read the following story:
Former "Star Trek: Voyager" actress Jennifer Lien was arrested in her Harriman, Tennessee, home on Sept. 3 after allegedly exposing herself in front of children, according to multiple reports.
ABC WATE reports that on Aug. 31 a neighbor passing by the 41-year-old's home commented on her crying children, which led to the actress lashing out at the neighbor with a "vulgar" tirade.Wow. That was actually much, much worse than I thought it would be.
The neighbor claims that Lien then exposed herself, lifting up her shirt and dropping her pants, all while three children looked on. Lien denied exposing herself, but police issued her a detainer summons, charging her with indecent exposure.
According to the police report obtained by Variety, when officers later appeared with a warrant on Sept. 3, the actress was naked under a blanket and resisted arrest.
Lien, who appeared on “Star Trek: Voyager” from 1995 to 2000 as Kes, allegedly threatened the arresting officers, claiming she would have all of them shot and killed. She remains in custody at this time.
I also found her mugshot, which showed what the 41-year old looks like today. And it's not pretty. If you have any fond memories of Lien's younger self, look away now or have them destroyed forever.

In 1994, Lien was cast as Kes on Star Trek: Voyager. Kes was an Ocampan, whose claim to fame is that they only live for 8 or 9 years. In season four, she was let go to bring on Jeri Ryan. In 2000, Lien came back for an episode in season six, where she played an older version of herself with god-like powers.
After Voyager, Lien had a role alongside Edward Norton in American History X. In 1998, Lien did voiceover work in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, and Men in Black: The Series.
In 2002, she married writer and filmmaker Phil Hwang. Apparently, at that point, she retired from acting and voice work. In 2010, Lien told Startrek.com she was taking college courses to become a nutritionist or dietician. That made me kind of sad that she had abandoned acting.
But since then, it seems things went south. In 2012, Lien was arrested for domestic assault. In 2015, Lien was arrested for evading arrest, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault. And then, there's here's her recent events.
If things get worse, she'll end up the Gary Coleman of Star Trek.
