Hot, Orion Slave Girl action in ENT's "Bound"
« on: January 24, 2005, 10:25:16 pm »
From Star

The three Orion girls are named "Navaar," "D'Nesh" and "Maras," and they're played by Cyia Batten, Crystal Allen and Menina Fortunato, respectively. You might recognize Batten from a somewhat less sensual role, the terse racer "Irina" in Star Trek: Voyager's "Drive." Batten was also the first actress to play Tora Ziyal, Gul Dukat's half-Bajoran daughter in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, for "Indiscretion" and "Return to Grace." However, Batten is as much a dancer as she is an actress ? she is a member of The Pussycat Dolls burlesque troupe of Los Angeles, so she knows a thing or two about erotic movement.

Her?  A Pussycat Doll?  Man, that make-up really alters a face...

Anyone noticing any parrallel's to "Mudd's Women" in this episode?


The one elaborate swing set built for this episode was the Main Cabin of Harrad-Sar's Barge, where Archer, Reed and two MACOs (played by extras) party with the Orion and watch the girls dance. The lavishly appointed space was reminiscent of an Arabian sheik's abode where you expect to see belly dancing take place, but with some high-tech equipment peeking through. The characters sat on reclining pillows, imbibed multihued drinks, and took part in a sumptuous feast with an alien animal as the centerpiece (the production notes called for "roast beast").

Roast beast?  So the Grinch is an Orion slave trader, too?

"You're a mean on, Mr. Grinch..."
