Susan Oliver as Vina
Star Trek’s producers did a good thing by putting one of the hottest women ever in the pilot episode to draw in viewers. Susan Oliver’s first appearance was as Vina, which ended up becoming one of the most iconic female characters in the series.
Vina made her appearance in the pilot episode titled “The Cage.” She had illusionary powers, and she could transform herself into an exotic green girl with some pretty serious dance moves. Behind every beautiful woman, there’s some secret tragedy. When Oliver was cast, she had yet to experience the accident that would change her life.
Since making an appearance on Star Trek Susan Oliver went on to take part in a long list of television shows including Peyton Place, M*A*S*H and Gunsmoke. Oliver was also a main cast member on the soap opera Days of Our Lives which landed her an Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Performance by a Supporting Actress.”
The actress also took up an interest in aviation and was working towards her pilot license. Ironically, she survived two near deaths while being a passenger on a plane, and eventually became so afraid of flying that she turned down jobs and even underwent hypnosis to overcome her fear of flying. She passed away in 1990 at the age of 58.
