Jeri Ryan, who came to fame playing the cyborg Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager, has signed up to play a recurring character on the upcoming season of the Fox teen drama The O.C. She will play a character named Charlotte Morgan, whom Kristin Cohen, played by Kelly Rowan, meets in rehab. Ryan will appear in at least seven episodes.
Ryan played the cyborg Seven of Nine for four seasons of Star Trek: Voyager. The character was a member of the Borg, a cyborg race that assimilated any humans it came into contact with and because they saw human individuality as a threat to its collective consciousness. Seven of Nine was rescued from the hive-mind of the Borg and became an integral part of the Voyager crew.
The O.C. is returning for its third season awash in the glory of being nominated for three Teen's Choice Awards.
