Trek Untold Episode 54: John Fleck, Silik on “Star Trek: Enterprise” & Other Aliens on TNG, DS9 and VOY

John Fleck has the distinction of being one of the few performers to have roles in every series from the second wave of Trek shows. He was the Romulan Taibak in Star Trek TNG “The Mind’s Eye”, a Cardassian overseer in DS9 “The Homecoming”, as well as Ornithar from “The Search” and another Romulan named Koval from “Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges”, Abaddon from Star Trek Voyager “Alice”, and Silik, leader of the Suliban and a perpetual thorn in the side of Captain Archer in all four seasons of Star Trek Enterprise.

 John tells us all about the different makeup processes for his multitude of alien races, his memories of being on-set in these different series and working with all of the Trek regulars!

Plus, memories of Leslie Nielsen in “The Naked Gun 2 ½”, “Howard the Duck”, “Pink Cadillac” with Clint Eastwood and Jim Carrey, insight into his performance art career, and the story behind being part of the controversial “NEA Four”, a group of artists who took the National Endowment for the Arts to the Supreme Court in a case about censorship that continues to have implications today.
