Pausing a Moment to Remember Louise Fletcher, who was a remarkable actress and DS9 would not be the same without her.
Series: Star Trek: DS9
Episode: 1.16 If Wishes Were Horses (May 17, 1993)
Red Shirt Status: 0/2
Notable Guest Stars:
Keone Young (Buck Bokai)- Young is known for both his live-action and voice work. I can’t say I’ve seen any of his scenes in the live action credits to his name, but he did voices for Mulan II and Sofia the First.
Michael J. Anderson (Rumpelstiltskin) – Anderson has appeared on shows such as Twin Peaks and Carnivale. But as an more important factor, he was a NASA tech operator before he went into acting. Which makes the scene where Rumpelstiltskin asks to help O’Brien amusing as the actor probably could have helped.
