Silik appreciation thread!

Played by the great John Fleck Silik was a senior official in the Suliban Cabal during the 2150s. In that capacity, he led the Cabal in fighting on the 22nd century front of the Temporal Cold War.

I've always really liked Silik even though he was part of the unfortunate TCW arc, I loved the Suliban make up and thought that Fleck as always put in a memorable performance and was glad to see him return for Storm Front 1&2.

Any other Silik fans?

I think John Fleck did a fabulous job with Silik.

I agree, the makeup was great. But I really enjoyed seeing Fleck's face in Silik's big finale:

Fan would be an exaggeration but whenever a Starfleet captain and his enemy respect each other we have an interesting antagonist and not a "villain who twirls his mustache".

Dude had a sexy voice, that's for sure. And some of his lines were deliciously snarky.

I only warmed up to him during his final episodes. Deliciously snarky indeed. And I agree with horatio83 that his interaction with Archer made for some interesting television.

pretty effective villain

"unfortunate TCW arc" yeah, that's a fair way to put it.

I love the way he says/pronounces 'Jaarn' when talking to Archer.

I thought Silik was a good baddie. Slimy bastard.

I'm a little hazy on whether he'd dead or not. Daniels died in the same episode ("Storm Front"), but was fine at the end. Is Silik? Surely the nazi-tastic timeline where he died never happened...?
