Jen Usellis-Mackay (2014)
Jen Usellis-Mackay (Klingon name jenbom tai-toQqul) is a singer and actress from Chicago, IL, USA. She performed in the 2010 and 2011 productions of A Klingon Christmas Carol in Chicago, but is certainly more known for her performance as "Klingon Pop Warrior". Jen is a supporting member of the Klingon Language Institute.

Jen became a fan of Klingons first from her time in A Klingon Christmas Carol and from there she developed a love of all things Star Trek. While not a fluent Klingon speaker, she has worked hard with regards to proper pronunciation and is actively working to learn the language better.

In 2021, she provided the Klingon dialogues for Star Trek Prodigy.
