Patricia Tallman is a stuntwoman and actress who appeared in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager, and in the seventh feature film Star Trek: Generations.
Outside the Star Trek universe she is best known for her role as "Lyta Alexander", a telepath, on the science fiction television series Babylon 5.
Tallman first worked with Dennis Madalone on the set of Shocker, and this led to an appearance in the TNG episode "Power Play", where she played a security officer. This single appearance was followed by a long-term relationship with Star Trek, as Tallman became part of the core stunt group. Because of her height and resemblance she doubled lead actresses Gates McFadden and Nana Visitor – as well as several guest actresses – for the next eight years, played stunt acting parts as a Romulan, Bajoran, and several other aliens, and coordinated fight scenes in such episodes as "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places".
Did You Know that the mask originally worn by the character Michael Myers in the 1978 film Halloween was actually a Captain Kirk mask? The mask was spray-painted white, given teased out hair, and reshaped eye holes. It was chosen because the low-budget production could not afford to make its own mask and the Kirk mask had an emotionless look to it.
