AN INTERGALACTIC ROGUE'S GALLERY
A TV GUIDE ARTICLE
The recurring role of Winn, ruthless leader of an orthodox religious sect on DS9 (introduced in the "In the Hands of the Prophets" episode), allows Fletcher a welcome opportunity to be flamboyant. "It's like performing grand opera," she says. "Because the show is set in space, you can do things you would never think of doing -- sidelong glances, coy looks. I love playing Winn; to me she's the Bajoran pope."
Fletcher's favorite line -- said with a straight face -- came in a sickbay scene as she gazed upon her chief rival, who was clinging to life through a series of transplants. "So tell me, doctor, as you've already replaced most of his organs, can't you do something with his brain?"
