I've read that she denies ever being in TNG, though, I believe, she was in two episodes (though I can't remember which ones).

    Is there a definitive list anywhere of 'Lefler's laws'? Jan 19, 2011 at 19:02

    This type of question is a death trap: leaving it open allows for people to ask this about every single TNG guest star, or heck every single guest star on every single SF show ever. Do we really want the site to be consumed with these types of questions?

  • It's not that hard to understand, esp. if you're familiar with Star Trek. But I don't think there's anything wrong with the question. Ashley Judd has tried to deny ever being in Star Trek. Why? And, it's a finite list and a pretty unusual even for such an acto to have been in a cult-classic TV series and go on to be a major star, right? Anyway, the community voted to reopen this one, so.

    @MarkTrapp - maybe you mean "every single incredibly beautiful guest star" which might narrow the scope a bit.

Ashley Judd played the character of Robin Lefler in two episodes:

The character's role in Darmok is not significant (she is part of La Forge's team working on the transporter), but plays a major role in The Game.

With respect to denying her appearance, my guess is that you are referring to an apparent mention by Judd on Letterman that she would reprise the role in Star Trek Nemesis (there are many references to this, but I can't find anything authoritative - it was 2002). This did not turn out to be the case, and was later denied by Judd's spokesperson (I can't find any authoritative source for this, either).

She certainly doesn't deny being in Star Trek as this video shows;

Wesley Crusher's part in Nemesis was certainly cut; it's possible that Judd was cut too, or that Lefler was in an early script but never filmed. There doesn't appear to be any definitive evidence either way.

  • Wesley Crusher made it in on screen in theaters; in the DVD version his one line scene with Picard at the Wedding was featured as a deleted scene. Mar 18, 2011 at 23:55

  • @Stick - Dunno. It's an odd one.

She also appeared in 'Darmok'.

    Odd, I don't remember her in that episode at all. It wasn't one of my favorites, anyway. Was her role much smaller than in The Game?

    She plays a major part in the game. In darmok she is Geordie's assistant while he's trying to focus the transporter beam. As for darmok not your favourite. It's the best episode of trek imo ;)
