Jeri Ryan returns to sci-fi to kick some ass in Mortal Kombat

We LOVE Jeri Ryan, who fueled fanboy dreams as Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager for four seasons—so we're thrilled to hear that we'll get to see her again in something a bit more sci-fi-ish than what she's been up to since Voyager wrapped—an upcoming Mortal Kombat digital series.

The actress confirmed through her Twitter feed that she's set to reprise the role of Sonya Blade alongside Michael Jai White's Jackson Briggs (aka Jax) in what will be an official sequel to the unofficial Mortal Kombat Rebirth trailer in which she previously appeared (albeit in a non-ass-kicking capacity).

IGN reports:

Ryan and White both starred in Kevin Tancharoen's unofficial "Rebirth" trailer last year, which garnered the attention of Warner Bros. and led to Tancharoen cowriting and directing an official new Mortal Kombat digital series.

Now let's just hope Ryan will get to put the nice suits aside (though we can't argue she doesn't look GOOD in them) and get into some ass-kicking action just as we know Sonya can, befitting the Mortal Kombat franchise.

In the meanwhile, you can feast your eyes again on that cool—and extremely gory—Mortal Kombat Rebirth trailer.
