    Julie Caitlin Brown just announced on Facebook minutes ago that W. Morgan Sheppard passed away. He played Dr. Ira Graves in "The Schizoid Man", the one-eyed Klingon commandant of Rura Penthe in STVI, the Ahab-like Qatai in "Bliss", and the Vulcan elder taken aback by Spock declining acceptance to the Vulcan Science Academy in Star Trek 2009.

    He also appeared in two episodes of Babylon 5 and was apparently a close runner up for the role of G'Kar.

    He was also the father of fellow Voyager guest star Mark Sheppard.

    He was also the Professor hologram in the first season of seaQuest DSV. And he appeared on DOCTOR WHO with his son on the same episode, marking a first for that franchise.

    He was an incredible actor, and his son clearly inherited his gift for the craft.

    R.I.P., sir.

    He and his son actually played the same character on that episode of Doctor Who! Mark as the young man and Morgan as the older. Which was strange really as they looked nothing alike at all despite being father and son! :wtf:

    Taking a moment to note that today is the third anniversary of the passing of David Hartwell, who launched the STAR TREK book line at Pocket Books back in the eighties--and which is still going strong today some thirty years later.
