Ohhhhhh no… Kes is in Trouble

Kes, the innocent mentally advanced alien present in the first three seasons of Star Trek Voyager apparently isn’t so innocent in real life…

And by that I mean it seems the actor who played Kes (Jennifer Lien) in the series seems to not be doing so well in life.

According to CNN affiliate WATE, Lien was arrested in her home in Harriman, Tennessee.

Neighbor Carey Smith told WATE that Lien came by her home to comment on how Smith’s children were being raised and started using vulgar language.

“All of a sudden, here come the shirt up,” said Smith.

“She started flashing and, ‘Woo hoo,’ and I said, ‘And what respect is that for kids?’ There was none. And then she turned around and dropped her pants.”

Obviously something is going on in her life and I have no idea what nor is it really any of my business. It really is surprising that this is the first mention of her I’ve heard in years. A little surprising and sad. Almost a bad “where are they now” feature.

Jennifer Lien’s most recent roles as an actor was in Accidents Dont Happen where she played a nurse and Men In Black: The Series where she played Agent L… both in 2000 / 20001.

She’s been put of the spotlight for over a decade it seems.

Anyways, I shall leave you with this bit of ironic news for you Star Trek Voyager fans out there.
