Trek Untold Episode 65: Molly Hagan, Eris, the first Vorta from DS9

Molly Hagan, Eris, the first Vorta from DS9

Trekkies will remember Molly Hagan as the very first Vorta ever seen in Star Trek history, debuting on the second season DS9 finale “The Jem'Hadar”. After that, fans expected her to become a Star Trek regular, but she never reprised the role or returned to the franchise. This week, we find out what happened!

Molly joins us to discuss her time on Trek, including working with Avery Brooks and Armin Shimerman, the makeup process, and a part of the Vorta that she created that never made it to air. Plus, we separate fact from fiction and discover why Molly never came back to Star Trek.

 Plus, the lesson she learned from Angela Lansbury, great stories about working with Peter Falk on “Columbo,” Betty White on “The Golden Girls,” and Jason Alexander on “Seinfeld,” giving birth with Alf as the doctor, guest-starring on “The Orville” with Robert Picardo and John Billingsley, her current role on the CW's “Walker,” and much more!
