Trek Untold-Episode 131: J. Paul Boehmer

J. Paul Boehmer takes a trip Around “Carbon Creek” and Inside the Borg Cube

J. Paul Boehmer has six Star Trek TV credits to his name, two in the video game world, and a long list of other credits in Theater, TV, and film.

You may remember J. Paul as a Nazi officer in the two-part “Star Trek: Voyager” episode “The Killing Game” and another one in the Enterprise episode “Storm Front,” the Borg named One from “the VOY episode “Drone,” the Cardassian officer named Vornar from DS9 “Tacking Into The Wind,” and the Vulcan who found a new home named Mestral from the classic ENT episode “Carbon Creek.” He also did voices in the Bridge Commander game and played Gowron's brother in “Klingon Academy” on PC.

In this honest, informative, and emotional interview, J. Paul told us stories from his theater days and how one show led to his first Star Trek role as the Nazi from VOY, playing another Nazi years later in Enterprise while performing with Scott Bakula (and why one Naiz had a German accent and the other didn't).

J. Paul also fondly recalled the heartwarming story about his Vulcan ears from ENT, the intense makeup to play this brand new style of Borg in “Drone” and the hardships of wearing that much prosthetics and neoprene, how playing a Borg helped him become a better Vulcan, meeting Christopher Plummer while working on the game, and much more! We also have some Star Trek adjacent talks about being in “The Orville” with three other heavily made-up aliens and working with Seth McFarlane and Adrianne Palicki,

Plus, performing a play that literally combined “Hamlet” with “Death of A Salesman” called “Haplet,” acting side by side with Kelsey Grammer in “Frasier,” “The Thomas Crowne Affair,” and more!
