Nick Cook has accepted the role of Commander Paul Duncan, the executive officer aboard the eponymous starship in the independent film Polaris
which begins lensing September 2009.
Nick is best known for the role of Captain Daniel Hunter in Starship Intrepid
the Internet fan film series which he helped create and also serves as lead writer and producer. He's most recently been seen as the character of Hodel in Star Trek: Phase II's
episode "Blood And Fire."
Nick resides in Dundee, Scotland and describes himself thusly:
When not earning a slightly moldy crust as a theatre nurse, Cook wiles away what little free time has writing, acting, annoying his wife...In a marginally successful attempt to add a few crumbs to his crust, he has also produced several educational videos on anaesthesia.
As an actor, he is especially proud of his voice work on Martin Lejeune's 'Making Kelham Famous' his onscreen flirting with the delightful Risha Denney in Hidden Frontier's 'Operation Beta Shield', and his wonderfully gory demise in Star Trek: Phase II's 'Blood and Fire'.
About the character
Paul Duncan enlisted in the United Worlds Navy after escaping the invasion and enemy occupation of the rural settlement planet Wōden. In contrast to Sam Fredericks and Valerie Young, Paul has little interest in space exploration and no great loyalty or love for Old Earth. He hates the Transhumans and is dedicated to liberating his home world.
