Smith, Kurtwood

Ironic it is that Kurtwood Smith could amass a body of screen work and yet be best remembered as the dad of That ‘70s Show—but there he is as Annorax, the Krenim time-tripper of Voyager’s two-part “Year of Hell.” 

A 1943 native of New Lisbon, Wisc., Smith first played franchise roles as the Efrosian Federation President in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, and flashback Terok Nor’s Cardassian Thrax in DS9’s “Things Past.”

Amid a career that began in 1980, Smith can also be seen as villain Clarence Boddiker in the roginal RoboCop and Sen. Meyer in the seventh season of 24, and also heard via much voice work for animation and video games.
