Trek Untold Episode 48: Jessica Gaona, Young B’Elanna Torres from “Star Trek: Voyager”
Jessica Gaona began acting at a very young age. She enjoyed two appearances in “Star Trek: Voyager: and other shows before taking a break from being behind the camera to find a new path in life.
Her first appearance was as an alien extra in the season six episode “Memorial,” but Trekkies may remember her best as young B'Elanna Torres from the seventh season episode “Lineage.” Jessica reminisces about being on the set of a Star Trek show, what the Klingon makeup process was like for an 11-year-old, meeting the show's stars, including Roxann Dawson, what the overall experience was like.
We also discuss what she's doing these days, which includes a freelance illustration career centered around anime and gaming conventions and her love of strength & fitness competitions.
