Minifigure Monday is back with the tenth entry in my Star Trek Voyager series. This week, we finally leave the list of characters introduced in the pilot episode. Additionally, I reveal my first villain. This week’s entry is the Seska Fantasy Minifigure. Seska’s first appearance was in the third episode of Voyager. Her character initially appears as a Bajoran Maquis crewmember. However, in the eleventh episode of season one, The Doctor reveals that Seska is actually a Cardassian spy. She had her true appearance genetically altered. Seska appears as an antagonist throughout seasons one and two. Ultimately, she meets her end in the first episode of season three. The character returns for one episode at the end of season three as a sort of holographic computer virus. Additionally, we see Seska again in season seven thanks to a temporal distortion.
Though the tenth character in my series, Seska was actually the last character that I drew. I tried to keep the proportion of male and female characters equal in this series, and I needed another woman. Additionally, I wanted a villain. Most of my Fantasy Minifigure Series went to Voyager’s main characters. However, Star Trek needs some conflict as well. In the end, I only have two villains. But they needed to be good ones. Seska was a compelling character in the show, in my opinion. I drew her last because there was a lot of detail needed in her face. In many ways, I think this is the one of the best pictures in my Voyager series. I think it shows the progress I made in learning to draw on my iPad using Vectornator.
Seska appeared in two full seasons, followed by three guest appearances.
Playmates produced two Seska action figures. Firstly, they released Seska as a Bajoran in the second wave of Voyager action figures in 1996. The character came with a type II phaser, Starfleet tricorder, engineering tools, and a trajector device. Similar to other Voyager figurines, Seska also had a Bajoran display stand and trading card. In 1997, Playmates issued Seska as a Cardassian in their generic Star Trek line. She still came with a display stand and trading card. However, rather than a Bajoran stand, this one was Cardassian. Additionally, she had a transporter module, tissue sampler, Kazon interrogation device, and Kazon communicator.
Martha Hackett portrayed Seska on Star Trek Voyager. Sadly, I have not had the chance to meet Hackett. Consequently, I have no autograph to share this week. However, next week, we’re back to autographs and even a photo-op! On top of that, next week’s entry features the Voyager character with the most Playmates action figures. Be sure to tune in again on Monday to find out who that is. To check out previous entries in this series, click here.
