'Voyager' Actress Jennifer Lien Arrested for Indecent Exposure

Jennifer Lien, who played “Kes” the Ocampa medical assistant in the first three seasons of “Star Trek: Voyager” was arrested on September 3 for indecent exposure.

Lien, who recently turned 41, was arrested at her home in Harriman, Tennessee on September 3. According to deputies, Lien had an active warrant in Roane County on two counts of exposing herself to a child under the age of 13.

In a strange twist to an already unsettling story, while delivering a Detainer Summons, Lien allegedly yelled to the deputies to come in after they arrived at her residence. Deputies said Lien was on a couch only covered by a blanket. When they told her about the warrant, Lien is said to have told the deputies that they needed to leave her alone. After repeatedly asking her to put on clothes, Lien is said to have them she would have all of them shot and killed, according to the police report.

With a bond set at $2,500, she is currently at the Roane County Detention Facility.

Lien’s criminal history includes aggravated assault, resisting arrest, evading arrest and reckless endangerment in April. She is scheduled to appear in court on December 7.

        To clarify, I didn’t wish her ill. I just don’t care for her acting ability. And based on her career, neither did the rest of the world.

        This is no ill will, but ownership of feelings. Judgment which seem rather harsh and groundless, like possibly unresolved self-loathing or repressed aspects to afraid and unaware to address and resolve. She was rather presented a girl without her self-authority or power – just like the usual modern adult/American.

        YUP. Just like any other person who has mental illness and does not know how get help or even know to get help. She does not look good because she is not being cared for properly. And there may be substance abuse issues as well.

        • unusualmind

          September 16, 2015 at 1:48 am

          it’s the very first sign of mental illness. You are completely correct. And Tenessee is not all that well known for their helping mentally ill individuals. In fact people who are from Tenessee and mentally ill come here to Illinois to receive treatment (And our system in Illinois isn’t all that great either.)

          • Edith Spencer

            September 16, 2015 at 2:50 pm

            SO many states have limited resources to help the mentally ill…and it does not help that mental illness, especially in this materialistic, cruel society, is stigmatized!

          • unusualmind

            September 16, 2015 at 4:56 pm

            And usually when there are cutbacks, funding for programs that help the mentally ill are cut first and deepest.

          • nelly0042

            September 16, 2015 at 9:58 pm

            Well, they can probably spell Tennessee in Tennessee (or at least notice the red squiggly line underneath indicating a misspelling).

          • unusualmind

            September 16, 2015 at 11:16 pm

            Sorry Bud. I don’t have spell check. Besides why would you comment on a grammatical error when what I said for both states is factually true?

          • nelly0042

            September 16, 2015 at 11:18 pm

            Why would you argue about your misspelling when I’m factually correct?

          • unusualmind

            September 16, 2015 at 11:31 pm

            Not arguing. Asking a question.

            Edit: Oh, I see. You’re a troll.

          • bstnfeeparty

            September 17, 2015 at 1:16 am

            The other question to ask is, who givesashit, because, you know “Tenassee!”

          • nelly0042

            September 17, 2015 at 5:48 am

            Another question to ask is why the regional prejudice on your part?

          • MsVanillaRose

            September 17, 2015 at 2:08 pm

            It wasn’t prejudice. It was based on the poster’s experience. But I will be sure not to misspell Tennessee, ever. Or Massachusetts, for that matter.

          • nelly0042

            September 17, 2015 at 3:35 pm

            Glad to contribute to your education.

          • MsVanillaRose

            September 18, 2015 at 5:26 am

            I’m not sure you did. I think I already knew how to spell Tennessee, but I didn’t realise people were so touchy about it.

          • nelly0042

            September 18, 2015 at 6:24 am

            OK, so let me see if I’ve got this.
            First, you’ve gone through some sort of personality swap with unusualmind, the original poster who made the spelling error. Is this swap like that which occurred between Captain Kirk and Dr. Janice Lester in Turnabout Intruder on the original Star Trek series, or is it more like that which occurred between Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan in Freaky Friday?
            Second, in this swapped personality state you “think” you knew how to spell Tennessee, but for some strange reason you decide to spell it incorrectly. Is this a consequence of the personality swap? Is there some sort of battle of wills going on? In fact, is this an actual personality swap, or do you take over the other person? Is this like when Captain Kirk let himself be controlled by the alien being Sargon in Return to Tomorrow, or is this more violent like when the demon takes control over Linda Blair in the Exorcist, resulting in a conflict between you and the other occupant? If the latter, is the misspelling some attempt to call for help from the other trapped occupant?
            Or is there a simpler explanation. You couldn’t resist butting in and acting like a derp.

          • bstnfeeparty

            September 18, 2015 at 11:31 am

            See above.

            Have you even been to that state???

            I have!

          • nelly0042

            September 18, 2015 at 11:35 am

            Yes. Many times.
            Since you promote yourself as some authority, I guess you had to avail yourself if their mental health services. Don’t judge their obvious failure with you as an indicator of the whole system. After all, some people are too far gone.

          • nelly0042

            September 17, 2015 at 5:46 am

            Seems your definition of “troll” is anyone who takes you to task on an issue.
            No, unusual one, not a troll. Just someone who would rather see data accompanying an assertion such as yours.
            You state: “Tenessee [sic] is not all that well known for their helping mentally ill individuals.”
            According to a 2009 report from the National Alliance on Mental Illness, “Tennessee has been a national leader in supportive housing for the mentally ill.”
            That alone pretty much negates your claim.
            It’s true that they’ve had severe budget cuts, but then so too have many other states, as you yourself noted. Your beloved Illinois has had cuts of 32% from its total general fund mental health budget from 2009 to 2012, and the state has a “severe shortage” of mental health workers, especially in state psychiatric hospitals.
            From what I can glean, Tennessee and Illinois are at best equals in their state of mental health care.

            Edit: But I see you’re more about bluster than substance.

            Whoa Nelly!
            From Wikipedia: In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion,[3] often for their own amusement.
            You just can’t stop, can you? Well, the definition fits your writing. In fact you made others so upset, some responses to you had to be deleted. And you’re a Trek fan? Take a breath, or two…

            Sorry, dumbfuq, but I didn’t comment to cause discord; I commented to post a different opinion. You’re just a pinhead who tries to silence opposing views by hurling accusations of trolling. Simply put, you lack the mental skills to offer any substantial rebuttal. And hilarious that it took you a month to forge a response.

          The ugliness that I see daily online is amazing.
          There’s no sympathy for people, and not much forgiveness.

          This woman is clearly sick…

          A good thought or two, or a prayer for a fellow human being is not a bad thing.

          It shouldn’t matter whether she was on a national TV series or not. She’s a parent, and I bet you her kid will be hurting, too…

          Sympathy when posted as a comment in an internet discussion seems more just about making one feel good about oneself. It’s just a bit of show saying “see what a nice person I am.” I mean, I’m sorry that her life has gone so horribly awry, but I’m not going to congratulate myself for having the feeling.

    • Rodney Garza

      September 15, 2015 at 11:28 pm

      Outside appearance is irrelevant in this case. She is even uglier on the inside. Her past shows a pattern (aggravated assault, resisting arrest, evading arrest and reckless endangerment). Perhaps doing some prison time and registering as a sex offender will wake her up so she can get the help she desperately needs.

      • Buskie Boy

        September 16, 2015 at 12:35 am

        I beg to disagree. Her outrageous and troubling appearance is a huge cry for help. Her violent actions and drastic change of personality and appearance suggest some inner demons and VERY low self esteem. Perhaps from her failure to return to acting or more personal reasons. I DO AGREE that some kind of incarceration is needed to REALLY get her the help she so desperately needs.
        She doesn’t need punishment but compassion and care.

        • RegmoX

          September 16, 2015 at 3:36 am

          Incarceration only makes people worse, it doesn’t make them better. Access to resources are severely restricted inside prison.

          • Rick Shultz

            September 16, 2015 at 6:48 pm

            I absolutely agree. Incarceration, unless it is absolutely necessary to prevent a person from harming him or her self is detrimental in the extreme. It is much more harmful than helpful and the usual outcome is that it causes the person who NEEDS the help to resist more than ever.

          • Rodney Garza

            September 16, 2015 at 7:09 pm

            I suppose the same applies to Jared Fogle of Subway. He just needs psychiatric help too? As I stated, she is a repeat offender. Even some county jail time will wake her up. And there are 12 step meetings in prison and jails. She should be placed in a program that involves anger management classes, and therapy, after serving some time. Only she can admit that she has a problem before she gets better.

      • Rick Shultz

        September 16, 2015 at 6:45 pm

        Since when would prison and being put on a sex offender registry over a misdemeanor help her? Psychiatric treatment would help her. Punishment would definitely not.

    • nelly0042

      September 16, 2015 at 10:02 pm

      Well, to be fair, I don’t think many if any here will have any direct contact with her or those involved. Gawking is pretty much all one can do. It’s possible to note how profoundly her appearance has changed and be sympathetic at the same time.

    As a recovering Tennesseean … I can say… This pretty much sums up TN.

    • JC

      September 16, 2015 at 11:28 am

      As a current and lifelong Tennessean, I do NOT loathe myself, use any kind of illicit drugs or narcotics, and I have worked for most of my life and make a decent living. The same is true for my friends and family. There are people with the problems you ascribe to Tennesseans rampant in EVERY state, for example…where did you say YOU live…?

      • Just me

        September 16, 2015 at 12:50 pm

        I left that festering hole called West TN 10 years ago and since then have done all I can to get everyone out that I can.
        Unless you live in Middle TN (which I excluded in my reference), and possibly Knoxville, I hold to my comment.
        If you are as you say, then you are the exception, not the rule.
        And I didn’t say where I live now, because it’s irrelevant to the conversation

    she’s only 41! talk about going down hill fast!
    how do you go from 24, cute as a button, and a successful actress, to 41, looking like a man/meth addict and looking like you live in a trailer park?

      Half of women lose their looks at 35 let alone 41 outside of Hollywood. People just get used to see Hollywood’s plastic surgery circus and think all women can look 20 at the age 50.

      The answer is in your question!
      You saw her at 24, at the height of her looks and potential. But to keep up those looks, it takes MONEY- for diet, for skincare, for exercise, for hair. YOu need a career erning a lot of money to stay that cute. And Ms. Lien’s career pretty much seems to have been dry for quite some time now- plus it seems like she is quite mentally ill.

        It’s weird…the last time I’d heard anything about her, she was in a couple movies after Voyager, then she decided to “retire” from acting to go back to college and also to raise her kids. What the hell happened to all THAT, is what I want to know. How did we get from there to here. So much that we’re not hearing, I believe.

          A LOT CAN HAPPEN.
          Mental illness can develop in many of the small, incremental ways that cancer in the body. I am sure that Ms. Lien had all those goals, and was living that life.. but then things may have fallen apart for her. And you are right- we simply do not have a full story!

    Never liked her anyway – Seven was so much better than Kes – such an annoying character… Lived for what? A decade?

    Lack of imagination on the part of the writers – seriously… no civilization would be much more than mindless drones if they lived for such a short period of time.

    Guess she had to go to extremes to get fans —-

    So she gets pissed off, has a fight with a neighbor and flashes the neighbor, bad idea to do it with kids As to her herself, yeah she does appear to look quite rough I was shocked with that hair. Where’s her husband and kids, she got married after the show to an Asian guy and had some kiddies. where is he and her kids I’m wondering. Jeez, what a shocker. My eyes bulged out when I saw it on FB AS an episode of Voyager (The killing game) happens to be playing at same time on my son’s comp next to mine..lmao. wow

      Perhaps some of the Star Trek alum could intervene and help her.
      I’d love to see that. She is obviously suffering and mentally unbalanced
      and ill. I believe she was married to a MUCH older man that used to abuse
      her and they had many fights where the police were called.
      It’s so disgusting and appalling reading all these horrible comments.
      Even the way she looks is a sign that she has deep issues and needs professional
      help. I’d even like to see media whores like Dr. Phil or Dr. Drew could offer some help?

    The only reason most of the commenters here care anything about this poor unfortunate individual is because of her former celebrity status. It’s so easy to sit in front of your computers and criticize her life and her situation without knowing how she got where she is. She obviously has some psychiatric problems and most likely drug or alcohol addiction. I’ll bet there isn’t a single person here who doesn’t have at least one family member with the same issues. So have some compassion, people. It doesn’t cost you anything to speak kindly about someone or to wish them well when they fall from grace. You never know when it could be you that people are making fun of and insulting. No one is young forever and life takes its toll on all of us. Remember, what goes around, comes around. Karma is a b!tch with a big stick who loves to bring your meanness right back home to you and poke you in the eye with it.

      This might very possibly be the most thoughtful and sensible comment of the whole bunch. People are terribly quick to criticize and make nasty comments about folks who are down on their luck or the innocent victim of a mental disorder that can ruin their lives. Very few people and certainly no one in this forum seems to want to admit that, except for the grace of God,it COULD be them in that situation. Civility and compassion are practically gone from this society now. I don’t know what happened to wither one, but the lack of both will be the eventual downfall of this country.

    I always liked Kes and the episode, “Before and After” is considered one of Star Trek’s Top 5 time travel episodes. It was the producers that was f+cking the show up, not Lien. She was such a beautiful woman. I genuinely wouldn’t be surprised to hear that she committed suicide. Her final speech in the episode, “Fury” really is chilling when factored with this and her other problems.

    I feel leery of posting this, as I don’t want it taken as gossip, and I don’t show-off my associations with famous people (yeah, I’ve known some; they’re just people). I met Jennifer in New York City, in 1992, in a casual home setting. (At the time, she was acting on the daytime TV drama “Another World.”) I chatted with her for quite a while, and was really impressed with her intelligence, insightfulness, sensitivity and wit – so much so that, from that one meeting, she remained to me “one of those people” who’d made an enduring impression on me as special. She seemed to have this “light” inside her. While talking with her, I’d assumed that she were about 24 years old, but I later learned that she was only 17. She seemed that “advanced.”

    So, 23 years later – this in the news. Given the way that Jennifer had stuck in my memory, this report has been subtly messing with my head. Sadness is just one of the feelings. I know that a lot can happen, and a person can change much, in a couple decades, but Jennifer was one of the people who’ve inspired me for years afterward just from a single meeting with them. I hope that somehow that positivity might come back around to her and bring her happiness and peace.

    It sounds a lot like Bipolar disorder. Margo Kidder the Superman actress did something similar. Also Linda Hamilton, of Terminator.

    Looking at her current picture, does she remind anyone else of one of the shape changing founders from Star Trek: Deep Space 9 ???

    I hope that Jennifer gets help.

    I have a friend that has PTSD (from being gang raped at the age of 16 along with sexual abuse while being in supposed support care and then raped again by a boyfriend when she left) and the pictures of Jennifer are eerily similar to my friends. She cuts her hair short when she can not cope with life.

    I know Jennifer has been through a lot in her life. Drugs, a friend dying because of drugs. Alcohol etc.

    I for one liked her acting and her portrayal of Kes.

    I hope that she can get help from a good support group and gets the love and care that she needs to at least have the chance to handle life better.

    Love to you Jennifer. Please get help. I care about you.

    Nobody ever wishes to have mental health issues. It is easy to laugh at or deride them but they cannot help it. It warps their perspective so they believe they are behaving rationally even when they are not. Would you make fun of someone with cancer or heart disease?
