    I couldn't see this elsewhere, so apologies if I've missed it.

    Armin Shimerman has just tweeted that Barry Jenner, DS9's Admiral Ross, has passed away.

    Wow- So sad to hear this.I liked Admiral Ross, there was a good dynamic between him and Sisko.

    Thoughts and prayers to his family.

    :(

    The only other thing I can think of him being in outside of DS9 was Family Matters :lol:

    I'm sure I've seen him in something else as well, but I can't think of any.

    I bid a fond farewell to one of the few good Admirals in Starfleet. :(

    I really liked Admiral Ross. I was searching on Netflix today and started watching Inter Arma Enim Silient Leges. I didn't finish it, but I think I might watch that episode in his tribute. Jenner brought a lot to the role, and Ross was one of the good admirals.

    RIP. :(

    It's not Trek related, but this is from when Barry was on $100000 Pyramid. Great reaction when the player wins. He was on the show quite a bit. Dallas too I believe. RIP

    Very sad. Looking back he might be the only Star Trek actor to have played an Honest, non Duplicitous, non asshole Admirral. Seemingly a very rare thing. I can't think of any others like him save perhaps Kirk's brief stint. (And if anyone points out the Bloodthirsty psychopath being promoted in Nemesis, I will beat you.)

    I was just watching an episode of the original V where Barry Jenner played a Visitor crew member on the mother ship. Rest in peace Mr. Jenner.

    I'm only on S4 of the re-watch, but I'm looking forward to the later seasons with Admiral Ross even more now.

    Like Griffeytrek said, probably the only likeable Starfleet Admiral outside of Admiral Forrest from ENT.

    RIP, Barry Jenner. I always remembered him for Family Matters and I liked him a lot on DS9. Admiral Ross was a very underrated character and he played the rare non-asshole Starfleet Admiral. Inter Arma Enim Silient Leges was definitely the defining episode featuring Ross.

    Sad news.
