She is in television.
She is in pictures.
She is in magazines.
She is in fictional books.
She is later in my picture frame.
She is on my wall.
She is on my desk.
She is in my purse.
She is in my computer.
She is in my Android tablet.
She is in my Android phone.
She is with me in my bedroom (the doll figure that is).
Then, she is in my writings.
She is in my conversations,
She is in my imagination,
She is in my thoughts.
She is in my dreams.
And she is in my heart.
So, no, she will not be forgotten.
Oh! She is everywhere! Well—er—almost…
Who is this beautiful and intelligent woman that has captured my heart and my imagination?
It is this lovely and intelligent woman called Seven of Nine. She has captured my attention in 1997 when she first appeared in star Trek: Voyager in the episode Scorpion II as a full Borg as a go-between with the Borg and Captain Janeway and crew to develop the weapon to combat the Species 8472 aliens that are decimating the Borg. When the war ended with the Species 8472 retreating to their realm, Seven of Nine had tried to assimilate the Voyager’s helm system only to be shocked into unconscious in order to separate her from the Borg Collective.
My first impression about this character was that I didn’t like her at first. She was cold and bossy. I didn’t think I would like her till much later in 2011 when I decided to watch the DVDs that I have bought.
Then my impression of Seven of Nine has changed drastically as I have grown to love this character. I just wish she is as real as me. Seven of Nine has lived most of her life as a Borg as I began to understand how she functions and interacts with people around her.
Yes, she has began with a cold Borg-like personality and she is slowly learning to acquaint herself with her Humanity. It was not an easy journey for her since her childhood was tragically cut short when she was assimilated.
So I have grown to love this beautiful and intelligent woman who is played by the lovely and talented Jeri Ryan. I cannot thank her enough for bringing Seven of Nine’s character and her personality to life. She has worked very hard to play this character, and she plays this role very well.
Even though that I have taken Drama class for three years in high school, I can see how well Jeri Ryan brings this character to life after she is given the role by those who has come up with this wonderful character. I think it was Brannon Braga and others who did this. (Correct me, if I am mistaken).
Even if the television show Star Trek: Voyager was losing its audience, They had to scramble for changes in their cast line-up. So Jeri Ryan was chosen for the role of Seven of Nine. As most people are giving this series the flack for giving it the “sex-appeal”; I have chosen to look past this type of quality even as a woman, I see her as a lovely woman.
If it wasn’t for those who created this character and that Jeri Ryan had not played this role, I don’t know what I would be missing! And I would not be writing this blog in the first place. Right?
Anyway; now that I grew to love this character, Seven of Nine. I will always remember to thank a talented actress behind this role. I am thankful to learn of her and to actually fall in love with her and to love her as a woman and as a friend in my life (even if you think I am imagining all this, but she is as real as life can be).
I can see how I can relate to Seven of Nine because I see in her shoes (Sorry, I can’t wear high-heels anymore. I’ll wear those clunky ones instead) how she struggles with her fears, violations, emotions, her interpersonal relationship with people, and how she learn to rise above them. I see so much of myself in Seven of Nine is how I grow to really like her.
So I believe this is about it for this wonderful blog entry and I would like to honor Jeri Ryan for this entry for I do appreciate her hard work in this role as a former Borg drone as known as Seven of Nine. 🙂
