Jennifer Lien, who played Kes in the first few seasons of the “Star Trek” spinoff series, has been charged with indecent exposure.

According to CNN affiliate WATE, Lien was arrested in her home in Harriman, Tennessee.

Neighbor Carey Smith told WATE that Lien came by her home to comment on how Smith’s children were being raised and started using vulgar language.

“All of a sudden, here come the shirt up,” said Smith.

“She started flashing and, ‘Woo hoo,’ and I said, ‘And what respect is that for kids?’ There was none. And then she turned around and dropped her pants.”

According to the affiliate, Lien was found naked on her couch by deputies and resisted walking to the patrol car after threatening to kill the officers.

Lien was clothed and carried out to the car.

Citing police, WATE reported that the actress had exposed herself to children.

The actress’ character on “Voyager” was Kes, an alien from a mentally advanced race with only a nine-year lifespan. The series aired from 1995 to 2001 for seven seasons.

The Harriman Police Department also said that Lien has a record that includes aggravated assault, domestic assault, resisting arrest, evading arrest and reckless endangerment.

As of Tuesday night, Lien remained in jail.
