Rise In Power, Captain K’Vagh (RIP, James Avery)

Boy, the hits just keep coming, don’t they?  We’ve lots a lot of good ones over the last year, but this loss feels more personal.  I haven’t posted in a while, but this passing deserved a post.  James Avery was one of the GOATs in the acting game, of all races.  Most of us knew and loved him as Uncle Phil on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, but us Trekkies knew he was also Captain K’Vagh on Star Trek Enterprise.  Even fewer people know that he auditioned against Michael Dorn for the role of Worf in TNG (Stop for a sec: Can you imagine?)

We’ve lost one of the greats, everyone.  Nearly everyone’s favorite TV dad and an actor that gave 100% to every role he took.    He passed on today after suffering complications from heart surgery earlier this month; he was 68.

Beware, a Klingon Warrior is about to arrive!
