Regardless of whether or not you’re a fan of Star Trek: Voyager, inevitably, you’ve seen the suits Seven of Nine (played by Jeri Ryan) wore. It’s amazing that anything else would fit under one of them. Ryan herself previously told Huffington Post that going to the bathroom was a process and that the entire crew had to know when she had to go.
"It was an event. If I had to go to the bathroom it was a 20-minute production shutdown. It’s true, no joke. The whole crew had to know about it, too. “10-1, everybody take five, take 10, take whatever. Jeri has to use the bathroom.” People had to get me dressed and undressed, so I had a full-time dresser. I couldn’t do it myself."
Things weren’t any better for the Borg costume. As uncomfortable as it looks, it wasn’t easy for Ryan to wear it, either. And before she even got to all of those layers, she had to wear a short body suit underneath that resembled an off-the-shoulder bathing suit. And Ryan definitely doesn’t miss wearing these form-fitting outfits so she probably didn’t have a problem with the most recent auction at The Prop Block where a fan shelled out $1476.00 to own the bodysuit.
The only other Voyager items that sold at The Prop Block auction which took place in March was the filming model of the large Caretaker Array (Pyrotechnic) which sold for $492.00 and the small Caretaker Array (Pyrotechnic) which sold for $430.50. The highest selling Star Trek item in the auction was the Enterprise-E Bridge Engineering LCARS from Star Trek: First Contact, which sold for $3,075.
