Actress Adrienne Wilkinson has been cast as Captain Lexxa Singh in the fan production, Star Trek: Renegades.
Wilkinson has been seen on Xena: Warrior Princess and lent her voice to the animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars.
Details on her character and casting come from the Star Trek: Renegades newsletter.
Lexxa Singh is a different breed of Trek captain. A former member of Starfleet, she was always a non-conformist and continually flouted authority. This led to her being recruited outside of Starfleet for covert and deadly missions. As Captain of an elite squad, Lexxa is not bound by the normal restraints, nor does she want to be. She is daring and brash, with a chip on her shoulder – one that will keep her at odds not only with her crew, but also with those in charge. She is a direct descendant of Khan Noonien Singh (TOS; ST: II), and therefore has enhanced physical and mental abilities. She is well aware of the stigma her name and lineage brings, and has always strived to overcome it, but it continues to follow her and haunt her wherever she goes.
