Kang has gone to Sto-vo-kor

Michael Ansara, who plated Kang, one of the original Klingon leaders in the original series. Has passed away.

Let's all send warning that a Klingon warrior is on the way.

Thank you for posting this, but there are already two other threads about Mr. Ansara's passing.

I'm sure he's already taken over the barge of the dead! Qapla, Mr. Ansara!

He would be in Stovokor, not GreThor where the barge of the dead is.

I heard about this the other day. Very sad news indeed.

Re: Kang has gone to Sto-vo-kor

I thought it was really cool just how much Ansara enjoyed playing Kang. It certainly showed!
