Brock Peters played two key roles in Star Trek: Admiral Cartwright in "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" and "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country," and Joseph Sisko, Benjamin Sisko's New Orleans-based father who ran his own creole restaurant.
Peters first gained fame as Tom Robinson, the man accused of rape in the classic 1962 film "To Kill a Mockingbird." His other early films include "The L-Shaped Room," "Carmen Jones" and "Porgy and Bess." The New York-born Peters, who gave the eulogy at his "Mockingbird" co-star Gregory Peck's funeral in 2003, had a deep, resonant voice that was well suited for voiceover and animation work. Peters' original name was George Fisher, but he dropped it in 1953 once he began his acting career.
Peters died of pancreatic cancer in 2005. He was 78.
