Renowned character actor David Warner has played his share of villains for Star Trek, including those with lots of latex. St. John Talbot was a human character in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, but the Klingon Chancellor Gorkon in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and the Cardassian Gul Madred in the ST:TNG episode "Chain of Command, Part II" were even more memorable and daunting. Each one, in turn, went toe-to-toe with Captains Kirk and Picard.
Warner, a 1941 native of Manchester, England, will forever be esconsed in genre movie history as Ed Dillinger, whose avatar as “Master Control” provided the cyber antagonist in the original Tron. He also worked with later Star Trek director Nick Meyer in Time After Time, and had standout roles everything from The Omen and Time Bandits to Titanic and the remake of The Planet of the Apes. Warner also voiced Ra’s al ghul for the animated Batman, among many. As a capper to his esteemed stage career, he is a member of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and, like Patrick Stewart, the Royal Shakespeare Company.
