Trek Untold Episode 41: Tim Lounibos, Lt. Daniel Kwan on Star Trek TNG

Tim Lounibos, Lt. Daniel Kwan on Star Trek TNG

Trekkies may remember Tim as Lt. Daniel Kwan from the season 7 episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” titled “Eye of the Beholder,” but he was also Vin Asunder in the “Star Trek Away Team” video game and has one more surprising Star Trek role that you have to hear about. We discuss the makeup process to become a Napien, behind the scenes stories of Jonathan Frakes and Gates McFadden, and other fond memories from filming the episode, and the reaction after.

Tim also tells us what it was like for an Asian-American actor trying to break into Hollywood in the early '90s, his time on the Hollywood Squares set while filming an episode of “The Nanny,” memories of sharing the stage with Michael Forest AKA Apollo from the Star Trek TOS episode “Who Mourns Adonis?”, working on “Bosch,” “Saved By The Bell: The New Class” and “All-American Girl” with Margaret Cho – a story that involves Garrett Wang from “Star Trek: Voyager.”

Plus, he explains why he left Hollywood for seven years and what made him decide to return and come back better than ever!

NOTE: This episode was recorded before the passing of Dustin Diamond, and we send our condolences to his family, friends, and fans.
