"Pan Am X"

I just watched an episode of "Pan Am" where a little boy called Charlie, who was more advanced than other boys his age and had parents who he was trying to avoid, would do magic tricks to impress women and had an almost adult-like longing for one of the stewardesses, who's quarters he showed up in uninvited while she was in her night wear.

Sound familiar?

Lol, nice 'homage'. To expect original stories (pretty much all stories are modern retellings of ancient ones) on network television is asking a lot....

Speaking of Charlie X, whatever became of Robert Walker JR? Does anybody know? Does he or has he ever done a convention?

Re: "Pan Am X"

According to http://www.starbaseadran.co.uk/actor-w-0007.html

"[Walker] continued as a jobbing actor throughout the 80's but his career was starting to wind down and roles were becoming harder to find. His last screen credit was a guest starring role in "The New Lassie" in 1991. Later that year he retired from show business. Walker was approached in 1997 for a role in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's sixth season, but he was "not interested in renewing his acting career" according to Ira Steven Behr."

Walker's a hell of an actor - he brought something worth watching to one of the most unnecessary sequels of its time, Ensign Pulver.

Walker also appears as Charlie Evans in the fanfilm, Star Trek: Of Gods and Men by our good friends at Phase II.

Also appearing are many other Trek alum, some as their Trek characters and some not.

No, Walker didn't play Evans in Of Gods And Men. William Wellman Jr. played him in that instance.

I stand corrected. Color me stupid, as I totally bought that it was Walker when I watched the movie.
