Re: Lieutenant Leslie: Star Trek's very own Mementic Badass
IIRC, the thing which makes his death in Obsession so interesting is that Kirk actually refers to him by name as 'Leslie' earlier in the scene, so even if we hypothesize that Eddie Paskey has got a knack of playing multiple non-descript background roles, not all of them necessarily Lieutenant Leslie, then one thing we can say for certain is that that
character who dies in that
episode is definitely Mister Leslie.
Does he actually get directly identified as Leslie in any of his subsequent appearances?
Kirk calls him by name in The Return of The Archons
