Susan Gibney (born 11 September 1961; age 53) is an American actress who was born in Manhattan Beach, California. She played two different characters in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

In The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine

On The Next Generation, she played Doctor Leah Brahms in the episodes "Booby Trap" and "Galaxy's Child", appearing as a holographic character in the first, and as a "real" person in the second. Gibney also appeared in two Deep Space Nine episodes, "Homefront" and "Paradise Lost", as Commander Erika Benteen.

Gibney filmed her scenes for the episode "Galaxy's Child" between Thursday 13 December 1990 and Monday 17 December 1990 and Wednesday 19 December 1990 and Friday 21 December 1990 on Paramount Stage 8, 9, and 16.

Gibney was a favorite for the role of Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager and was even brought back to screen test a second time after Geneviève Bujold failed to work out, but Paramount rejected her due to her age, convinced she was too young. She also tested for Seven of Nine and the Borg Queen.

More recently, Ms. Gibney had a recurring role on Crossing Jordan, as Suffolk County, Massachusetts, Assistant District Attorney Rene Walcott, alongside actor Miguel Ferrer. (Roxann Dawson had joined this program's production staff as one of its producers some time prior, or subsequent, to its premiere.)

Besides her Star Trek appearances, she has guest-starred on such television series as Spenser: For Hire (starring Avery Brooks), The Equalizer (with Robert Lansing and Keith Szarabajka), L.A. Law (with Diana Muldaur, Corbin Bernsen, Richard Cox, Larry Drake, Jennifer Hetrick, and George D. Wallace), 24 (with Michelle Forbes, Penny Johnson, Jude Ciccolella, and Daniel Dae Kim), the short-lived sitcom Happy Family (with John Larroquette), The Cape (again with Corbin Bernsen), the two final episodes of Party of Five (with Charles Esten), the 2008 TV movie Knight Rider (with Bruce Davison and Greg Ellis) Gibney landed the recurring role of fingerprint technician Charlotte Meridian on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation appearing first in the series premiere with John Pyper-Ferguson and Barbara Tarbuck and the second season "And Then There Were None" with Brigid Brannagh. She also made several appearances on Diagnosis Murder, usually playing Sergeant Tanis Archer.

Feature films

She was one of many Star Trek performers to appear in the 1996 film The Great White Hype. Among her co-stars in this film were Corbin Bernsen, John Rhys-Davies, Salli Elise Richardson, Albert Hall, and Brad Blaisdell. Gibney's other film credits include 1991's And You Thought YOUR Parents Were Weird!, with Armin Shimerman, and 1992's The Waterdance, co-starring fellow TNG guest actress Elizabeth Dennehy.
