    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Having been watching episodes of that series recently and am really enjoying him in it.

    Hmm. I think you're right. I just watched that trailer on my DVD again, and it DOES, in fact, sound more like Throne than Welles.

    That said, I remember reading somewhere that it was Welles, but I can't find that source anymore.

    He will be missed. A giant of character actors, and for TOS fans, he delivered a well remembered performance.

    With Cliff Robertson and Malachi Throne now both gone, or Shame and Falseface respectively, are there ANY male villains from the BATMAN TV series still with us?

    John Astin who, IIRC, played the Riddler in at least one appearance is still around. Don't recall if he was before or after Frank Gorshin's portrayal.

    It was actually in the MIDDLE - Gorshin couldn't make a filming, so Astin subbed. :vulcan:

    Throne was one of just five actors to appear in all four of the Irwin Allen series (VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, LOST IN SPACE, THE TIME TUNNEL and LAND OF THE GIANTS). The others are Michael Ansara, Kevin Hagen, John Crawford and Torin Thatcher.
