Kim Cattrall as Lieutenant Valeris from Star Trek VI, you know best thanks to Sex on the City series.

Many people confused with Lt. Saavik but as Wikipedia says: The character of Saavik was originally intended to appear in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, which would have revealed her as a traitor to the Federation. The idea of using an established character was dropped and a new character, Valeris, was created instead. According to director Nicholas Meyer, writing in his autobiography, The View from the Bridge, Saavik was dropped from the film and Valeris created when Kirstie Alley proved unwilling to reprise the role, while Leonard Nimoy, in his autobiography I Am Spock, said there were also second thoughts about casting a popular, established character as a villain
