(written from a Production point of view)
Alicia Coppola (born 12 April 1968; age 48) is the actress who portrayed Lieutenant Stadi in "Caretaker", the pilot episode of Star Trek: Voyager. She is perhaps best remembered by soap opera buffs for her role as Lorna Devon on Another World from 1991 through 1994. For this role, she received two nominations from the Soap Opera Digest Awards, winning her first. When she left the series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine actress Robin Christopher replaced her as Lorna.
Besides Voyager, Coppola has guest starred on such series as NYPD Blue (starring Gordon Clapp and Sharon Lawrence), Profiler (with Dennis Christopher and Michael McFall), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (alongside Lee Arenberg, Albie Selznick, and Kellie Waymire), Ally McBeal (co-starring Albert Hall), Michael and Shawn Piller's The Dead Zone (starring Nicole de Boer and David Ogden Stiers), Monk (with Stanley Kamel), and Bones (with Patti Yasutake). She was also seen in a 2003 episode of the short-lived series The Lyon's Den with Voyager series regulars Roxann Dawson and Robert Picardo, as well as Scott MacDonald, Steven Weber and Rick Worthy.
In addition, Coppola had recurring roles on the NBC shows Trinity and American Dreams and was a regular on another NBC series, the short-lived Cold Feet. Between 2006 and 2008 she was a cast member on the post-apocalyptic CBS drama series, Jericho.
Coppola can be seen in a handful of feature films, including the 1997 science fiction opus Velocity Trap, the 2001 comedy-drama Zigs (with Tiny Ron), the 2003 crime thriller Sin (co-starring Gregg Henry and Daniel Dae Kim), and the action drama National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007).
More recent television roles include the series Castle (2011, with Efrain Figueroa, Ethan Phillips, and Marlene Forte), Detroit 1-8-7 (2011, with Aisha Hinds and Erin Cummings), Suits (2011), Revenge (2011), Two and a Half Men (2013), Teen Wolf (2013), Criminal Minds (2014), and Sons of Anarchy (2014, with April Grace). She also had recurring roles in the fantasy series The Nine Lives of Chloe King (2011, starring Amy Pietz), the comedy series Common Law (2012), and the crime drama series NCIS: Los Angeles (2010 and 2015, with Miguel Ferrer, Patrick Kilpatrick, and Patti Tippo).
