Leonard Nimoy was born in Boston, and served in the US army from 1953-55. One of his director credits was working on the movie 'Three Men and a Baby.'Like Walter Koenig (Chekov), he is Jewish - and the famour V shaped Vulcan hand greeting originated from what someone did in a Jewish ceremony. He also invented the Vulcan neck pinch which was more civilised and less violent than other ways to subdue a foe. After the original series was cancelled, he starred in the remake Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) and in the second team of Mission: Impossible. Leonard has also released some of his favourite songs, so if you want to hear him sing, check on You Tube.

Cool...


JG Hertzler (John Garman Hertzler) is best-known for playing Chancellor Martok on Deep Space Nine. However, his "Star Trek" links go back to 1990, when he appeared in an episode of Quantum Leap opposite Scott Bakula, the man who became Jonathan Archer.


When auditioning for the role of Martok for Deep Space Nine, the casting director told him to show more anger so he threw a chair at a wall. The display cost him a thumbnail, but won him the role.


Good-natured, yet violent outbursts against furniture seem to be a specialty of his. During an interview for a German public access channel he demonstrated what an outside linebacker (his position in college football) is by suddenly throwing a table over.


He is one of only four actors to play seven different characters on Star Trek. He played the Vulcan captain of the U.S.S. Saratoga, General/Chancellor Martok, Roy Rittenhouse and Laas on Deep Space Nine, a Hirogen hunter on Voyager, and Kolos and a Klingon captain on Enterprise.


JG became an active fighter in finding a cure for sclerodermia (a lethal disease of the skin) after his father died of it. He also contributed voice acting to several Star Trek computer games, including Star Trek Klingon, Star Trek: Armada I and II and Star Trek: Elite Force II.
