Favourite Trek anguish

In memory of the late William Windom. I think his Decker was one of the best anguished performances in of all Trek; I really felt the man's pain and torture. And contrast was all the greater given much of the general light tone/pop colour of TOS. And something not seen a lot in SF (Adama's snot-nosed breakdown in nuBSG is one of few comes to mind).

So what's your favourite Trek anguish performance/moment? Something where you felt watching it: man, I feel their pain. I guess Picard's FC freakout is obvious.

There's a couple of moments in VOY Jetrel, where Neelix meets the scientist who devised the weapon that exterminated his world, where Ethan Phillips almost reaches that state.

Re: Favourite Trek anguish

When Chakotay found out that his lover Seska was betraying him in multi layers of betrayal.. his lover was not even the species she had led him to believe she was. She had been a Cardassian agent using him to worm her way into the Maquis. Now she was betraying his new allegiance to Voyager by selling them out to the Kazon. His anguish in this scene is palpable.. palpable I tells ya.



It just tears me up every time inside.

:: palpates Chak gently ::

He's dead Kathryn.

Anyway..

In ENT's Cold Station 12 Phlox's friend Dr. Jeremy Lucas's anguish is terrible as he watches a fellow scientist die a horrible death all the while lying that he does not have the code that would allow Soong to release him.



Dr. Jeremy Lucas was played by Richard Riehle. Riehle also had roles in TNG and VOY playing other characters.

The scene in Emissary where Sisko's fellow officer from the Saratoga has to pull him away from Jennifer and he's yelling "we can't just leave her."

Re: Favourite Trek anguish

Kirk's reaction to the death of David Marcus. The way he stumbled back and fell on the bridge, the pain and grief in his voice - perhaps one of the best performances Shatner ever gave. I remember reading that Leonard Nimoy thought he had injured himself by falling accidentally, but it was a deliberate choice on Shatner's part.

Re: Favourite Trek anguish

Michael Forest's performance as Apollo in his final scene in "Who Mourns for Adonais". He nailed it perfectly. You can start to see his anguish as Enterprise is destroying his power source and following right through to his realization that there isn't any more room for Gods. It is very moving and excellently portrayed.

Trek anguish, when TPTB had all the experience and opportunity to do something wonderful with VOY and instead gave us what we got.

Spock's breakdown in Naked Time, followed by Kirk's.
