He also had Star Wars connections too, as he was the announcer in the very first Star Wars trailer, the one that proclaimed, "Somewhere in space, this may all be happening right now".

Did Throne do much voice work for cartoons? I'm vaguely recalling a cartoon character voice or narrator that could have been him. I can hear his voice but not place it.

Malachi Throne has died, per his wikipedia entry today.
Bizarre. I must be living in an alternate timeline. I could've sworn that I read his obituary before, within the last few years.

Read about his passing on Huffington Post in the last half hour and stunned by it. I took a look at his filmography on imdb and was floored by his astonishing career. Even forgot that he played Senator Pardek in TNG's Unification (DUH!) RIP Mr. Thorne.

Wasn't he in the early running to play Picard?
I've never heard that, but I do know that Bill Campbell (Trelane, Koloth) tried out for Picard and was turned down.

Aside from his work in The Cage and The Menagerie, Malachi Throne played Pardek, Spock's Romulan friend in Unification.

Just realized--he was the last actor to portray a'superior' officer from TOS. All the admirals, commodores and fleet captains have passed.



Garth
Decker
Stone
Stocker
Pike
Fitzgerald
Wesley
Barstow
Westervleit
Enwright (voiced by Doohan)

and now Mendez


R.I.P. all

Actually, I think that was Orson Wells.

I dunno, Wookieepedia has him credited for that Star Wars trailer. It was Orson Wells who did the Star Trek: The Motion Picture trailer.

Re: Malachi Throne has died

It's not Welles in the original SW trailer. I'd know his voice anywhere. It doesn't sound like Throne, either, but I'm less certain about that.
