It is our sad duty at StarTrek.com to report the passing of William Campbell. The actor, beloved in Star Trek circles for his roles as Trelane in the TOS episode The Squire of Gothos and as the Klingon Koloth in the TOS episode "The Trouble with Tribbles and the DS9 episode Blood Oath, passed away in the early evening of April 28 following a long illness.

“Jim, this man is a Klingon.”
RIP, Mr. Campbell.
He was Q before Q was. RIP Trelayne.
“He was Q before Q was. RIP Trelayne.”
I was going to post the same thing.
Trelayne was Q.
I read it in a ST book once.
Actually now that i think of it Gary Michell was Q i believe.
Don’t forget him in “Dementia 13”, and “The High and the Mighty.” RIP One of my favorites.
What i meant was 100 years before TNG Q was banished from the continuum and his soul/being floated around space for ages before he came across Gary Mitchell and inhabited his body.
RIP, Mister Campbell.
she weakened Mitchell long enough for Kirk to overpower him. Kirk knocked Mitchell into a hole Mitchell had prepared (ironically) as Kirk’s grave. Using a phaser, Kirk collapsed the hillside on top of Mitchell, burying him beneath tons of rock and ending his threat forever.
I love it when Kirk found the one weakness of omnipotent beings.
Remember how the grave Mitchell marked was marked “James ‘R’. Kirk”? I’m such a TOS geek. I liked Trelane because he was such a flamboyant SOB. And his mom and dad told him he couldn’t “make” any more planets. Now THAT’S power, when you can make planets.
Wow, I didn’t know that. I never got into TNG, but I did enjoy some episodes, “The Crystaline Entity” and the “Inner Light” were great. I always wondered how Picard was “sane” after living an entire lifetime in 20 minutes, having kids, grandkids, etc.
“I always wondered how Picard was sane after living an entire lifetime in 20 minutes, having kids, grandkids, etc.”
He kept trying in later episodes to master the little Recorder, or Flute, or whatever that thing was, that was given to him as a remembrance of that life.
My opinion was it softened Picard some afterward. He saw life from the side of actually being a father, and grandfather, which he would never get to experience in real life unless you count his time in the Nexus.
Add Norman in I Mudd.
I backed up and looked at that one again. You sir, have made my day.
<He was Q before Q was. RIP Trelayne.
Couldn’t have said it better myself. ST ping, my little Q.
“Inner Light”, best TNG ever.
“Inner Light” made me cry. Imagine having a wife, kids, grandkids, friends, then having that all taken away and realizing they have all been dead for 5000 years. And that they used you so that they would be remembered.
Yea, that was a good episode.
How does one go back to their normal life after living almost an entire lifetime of another person in peril in a blink of an eye?
some of my favorite episodes were Yesterdays Enterprise, The best of both worlds, Q Who, Time Squared....
Unfortunatly i belive there were far more bad episodes than good ones though.
Don’t tell anyone but i may be only one of a few that actually enjoyed Voyager and thought that despite some really good battle scenes Deep Space 9 sucked badly.
If I remember correctly, the flute didn’t actually work in reality. It was auctioned off some years ago, for a considerable sum.
