Early 90s, I saw Gillian in a comic book, she was still frakking Kirk.
I believe that was Star Trek: Debt of Honor, a graphic novel by Chris Claremont and Adam Hughes.

Re: Rain Robinson (Sarah Silverman)



I have been trying to find a Clearing House to be the source for all of my Sarah Silverman entertainment needs ... and it's been a hell of a challenge! The closest thing I've found is this, which I thought I'd be nice enough to share with you all ... willingly:

http://sarahsilvermanonline.com/

Now - supposedly - this site's been created and maintained by "Sarah's #1 fan." A dubious title, which I find highly suspect. All I can say for sure is that it's an Informative, if not rather busy-looking, compilation of Sarah Silverman news & products. But, it has a forum and ... and ... and everything!

Apparently there was talk of adding her to the cast as a regular, but it didn't work out. Talked about a missed opportunity. That would have been great . . . .
Huh?? I've never heard this before. At what point did they consider adding her to the cast as a regular? Was it before they cast Sarah Silverman in the role of Rain? Was it during filming when they saw Rain's great chemistry with Tom? Or was it after the show was filmed or aired on TV? I do agree that Sarah Silverman did a great job in this role.

On a side note, I've been rewatching at the Voyager episodes and the next episode to watch is Future's End. I've been putting it off because they episode bores me (I've seen it so many times).

Oh gosh I love Future's End, my most watched episode of VOY

And if they DID cast Silverman who would have gotten the axe?

I'm surprised that a more Janeway-centric episode isn't your most watched Voyager episode!!

Sarah Silverman.
Now, there's a subject I want to discuss!

I love her Stand-up. I can't even begin to explain why, but I think it's because of the "reality" of it. She's just there, with an audience, trying out different material and it's the closest to whomever she really is that we, as an audience, get to see. And see her you can, in this clip from when her rose was in bloom and looking very beautiful, as she charms the beguiled ... ENJOY!

The following link answers all of your questions regarding her brush with being permanently cast in STAR TREK: VOYAGER ...
http://www.blastr.com/2011/04/see_wh...became_a_r.php

Personally, I love "Future's End" for many reasons - not the least of which is Sarah Silverman's essay of Rain Robinson. You'll notice that there's no trace of her trademark outrageousness in this role. Her ability to act and the fact that she genuinely seems to be enjoying herself in this two-parter are very evident. I'm not the least surprised that "they" considered casting her as a series regular. I wish I could say I was disappointed, because I really like her and Tom together. But ... she was destined for greater things.

I just saw Future's End. Once Torres and Chakotay were captured, the episode started entering "Pulp Fiction Territory" as to "Geez, how much trouble can they run into"?

Coincidentally both troubles consist of backwoods hillbillies.

Re: Rain Robinson (Sarah Silverman)



"Future's End" and "Pulp Fiction" do seem to have quite a bit in common with eachother. Not the least of which is that they both feature loopy, yet very beautiful, brunettes ...

I love that she got sued for slander by Joe Franklin for her piece in The Aristocrats. As this guy here said, it was perfect because she did push the joke too far--like you're supposed to.

Very interesting comment and article about Sarah Silverman! I particularly liked how it goes on to say that ...

Variety has called her "rail-thin yet full-bosomed,"
and the New York Times (the description of record) "babelicious";
The New Yorker recently described her as "coltish, with shiny black hair and a china-doll complexion" (and added, in a weirdly zoological flourish, that she "moves like a vervet monkey").
She's been on Maxim's "Hot 100" list (after Jennifer Love Hewitt, before Norah Jones)
and is currently the cover girl for the Jewish magazine Heeb, for which she has also written porn reviews.

In another article/blog I happened to have read about her, recently, it has Leah Berkenwald asking people: "What's your beef with Sarah Silverman?" and goes on to mention some interesting aspects about her and her act, especially ...

http://jwa.org/blog/whats-your-beef-...arah-silverman

"I wouldn't say I'm a huge fan, but over the years, my appreciation for Sarah Silverman has grown. ... [E]very now and then she hits it out of the park. Like with her "I'm f-ing Matt Damon" video. And I have a lot of respect for the political advocacy she's done, like The Great Schlep and her video about gay rights in response to the "It Gets Better" campaign. In her own way, she is pretty feminist."

Re: Rain Robinson (Sarah Silverman)

Also...Memory Alpha seems to say that Voyager destroying the Aeon means all the events never happened, so Ed Begley stayed a hippy, and Rain never met Paris. while that's possible I suppose, I didn't get that from the episode and there's also no reason why everything could still have happened. It's not like everyone on Voyager started suddenly saying "Why are we in the 1990's?"
