Did you guys know that Susan Gibney (Dr. Leah Brahms on TNG and Commander Erika Benteen of DS9) auditioned for the role of Seven of Nine? I had heard that she auditioned for Janeway, but never for Seven of Nine! I can't imagine anyone else playing the role of Seven because Jeri Ryan did so well. Oh, Susan was also considered for the role of the Borg Queen on First Contact... if she got that role then maybe she could have appeared on Voyager as the Borg Queen. Read the StarTrek.com article about with the Susan Gibney interview about her auditions. BTW I also posted a thread on the TNG section of Trekbbs 'cause Susan Gibney auditioned for the parts of Deanna Troi and Tasha Yar!
