HARRIMAN (WATE) – A judge has ordered a mental evaluation for a former “Star Trek: Voyager” actress after she was arrested in Roane County last month for indecent exposure.

Jennifer Ann Lien, 41, played medical assistant “Kes” on the science fiction series from 1995 to 1998. Lien was taken into custody at her home in Harriman on September 3.

Neighbors say she exposed herself to two children after complaining about how they were crying. When deputies arrived to serve an arrest warrant, they say Lien was nude on her couch, covered by a blanket. She denied the allegations and refused to leave.

Two deputies repeatedly asked Lien to put on clothes, eventually calling for a female deputy. They said Lien told them she would have all of them shot and killed.

Eventually, deputies said they put Lien in handcuffs, putting a shirt and pants from the jail on her. They said she refused to walk to the patrol car and they had to carry her to the car, before driving to the Roane County Detention Center.

Judge Dennis Humphrey has now ordered her to undergo a mental evaluation. Court officials could not confirm where the evaluation will take place.
