The Star trek fandom were set to have an epic year as they expected to get two of their beloved programs on screen starting from Star Trek: Picard to Star Trek: Discovery. But unexpectedly The Star Trek fandom went into mourning as they recently lost one of their own. The Star Trek Universe on Wednesday lost Kevin Conway who famously played his guest role as the clone of Kahless the Unforgettable in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The death was confirmed by his publicists who said that he died of a heart attack on Wednesday at the age of 77. He got his start when he was 24 with off-Broadway stage hits like One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Elephant Man, and when You Comin’ Back, Red Ryder? He also received the 1974 Drama Desk Award for the last work. The first major role for him in the movies came as Edgar Derby in Slaughterhouse-Five. A 1972 movie that was inspired by a novel of the same name written by Kurt Vonnegut.
His other prominent movies include Funny Farm, Invincible, Thirteen Days, Gettsyburg, and Gods and Generals.
Recently he was working as a narrator for a number of television shows starting from Who Killed Jane Done? (2017), Unmasked (2018) to Prairie Dog Manor (2019).
He also played parts in television shows like The Good Wife, JAG, Law& Order: Criminal Intent, In the Heat of the Night, and The Black Donellys. He played recurring characters in HBO’s Oz as well as Larry McMurty’s Streets of Laredo.
Before his death he completed work on Showtime and SYFY’s The Outer Limits, a reboot of the classic 1963 science fiction anthology. He was working as The Control Voice.
We hope that his family finds the strength to go through this difficult time.
