Trance Gemini - Andromeda

Trance Gemini is a fictional female geminian who works for Commonwealth in the Andromeda franchise. She has been portrayed on screen by Laura Bertram. Trance Gemini`s origins were a mysterious until the end of the fifth series.

Joining the Andromeda Ascendant

Unlike other members of the crew, Trance never carried a gun, she was more a medical technician in the crew. She was originally part of Rebekah Valentine crew onboard the Eureka Maru. When Beka had been defeated in her attempt at salvaging the Andromeda Ascendant, Captain Dylan Hunt offered all of the Eureka`s crew a place in his crew and they all accepted.

Trance Gemini`s Appearance

When Trance Gemini first appeared, Trance was purple skinned, blonde hair and with a tail but that all changed in the second series. The character is played by Canadian actress Laura Bertram. The actress Laura was so attached to her tail that when someone trode on her fake tail, she acted as Trance Gemini and pretended it hurt.

Trance`s tail gets dropped in the second series without much fanfare. Just before Ouroboros, Trance says she no longer has a tail in response to a comment from a colleague. Trance`s tail wasn`t just for aesthetics, Trance was able to use her tail to attack her enemies.

Trance Gemini as she appeared in the first series as a purple female with a tail.

Trance`s appearance changes during the second series episode Ouroboros from a purple creature to a more human looking with red hair and a reddish freckled skin. Harper has mixed up time and space which causes the Trance Gemini from the future to swap place with the current Trance. At the end of the fourth series, we learn she is an avatar of a star. At the beginning of the fifth series, she loses her memory and has to begin again.

Alternate Future

The reason why the red headed Trance Gemini swapped places was because of an incident a couple of months in the future. In the future at a meeting of members of fifty Commonwealth leaders, the Andromeda Ascendant is attacked by aliens from an Parallel Universe . It didn`t end well and only Trance Gemini and Rebekah Valentine survived.

Using Trance`s knowledge, the crew of the Ascendant are able to change the course by doing things differently. Instead of Tyr Anasazi at weapons control, Trance took up position and destroyed a number of the ships. In the alternate future, they didn`t see the wormhole which they are aware of this time round. In the present universe, Rebekah destroys the portal using the Eureka Maru. Ref: Tunnel at the end of the Light

Avatar of Tarn Vedra Sun

Trance has powers that you`d expect of a God such as having the ability to change the outcome of the future. In one episode, the crew are killed by an alien robot. Trance journeys back in time to warn the crew to save them, she keeps failing to save them so travels back again repeatedly in a groundhog day style episode.

It was revealed that Trance Gemini was in fact the living avatar of the Tarn Vedra sun which had been designed to defeat the Abyss. At the beginning of the fifth series when all the characters had been split up, Trance Gemini is found in a Solar state and with memory loss of what had happened.

Trance Gemini`s name comes in part from the constellation of the twins, Gemini. As for first name probably because she can put you into a trance like status. If you watch the last episodes, you will see that Trance is one of many twins. Trance had many sisters who all looked like her. Her leader Maura was different, she was more human like.

At the end of the final series, Trance`s fellow aliens turn up to take her home after combating the Abyss for the last time. Her old look is below with her new latest look above. In the final episodes, we see other Suns who all look like her except Maura who it is implied is the leader of Trance`s kind.

I loved the character Trance Gemini in the hit series Andromeda. I loved the different transformations in the differet seasons of the show. Still she is the same Trance (changes alot of her appearances) was great.; including the make-up and the costumes. I truly enjoyed Trance Gemini and because she is my most favorite character. Trance Gemini the Avatar of the Sun, the Greatest Friend & Companion to Captain Dyan Hunt and the Andromeda's crew.
Im A Fan
I'm A Fan of the series Andromeda And some of what you wrote about Laura Bertram's role as Trance is not all completely true
Heath
In I think Nietzschean Secession Trance Gemini reveals to Dylan Hunt that her race is the Avatar of Suns. She is the avatar the Vedran sun.

I have to say i only watched Andromeda to see Trance Gemini! I love this charakter and how it was played by Laura Bertram! I know a film-charakter says not much about the charakter of an actor, but acting as Trance, in this very different ways, was all over the seasons, one of the greatest actor performances i have ever seen. I think no one who is not an actor, can understand how hard it is to play the same charakter in different ways. So i can only say Laura Bertram is at least a very pretty girl and sure a great actor, i´m only sad that i will never have the chance to know here private. But so i can still hope she is a little bit like Trance Gemini! To find an end, if i had a free wish, i would wish to have a girlfriend like Trance!
