Today is the birthday of Star Trek Enterprise’s Captain Archer, Scott Bakula. The actor is 55 years young. Since leaving the 22nd century in 2005 the actor has kept busy, including working on the stage, TV, and film and he even has a new TV show coming in December (Men of a Certain Age). We also are extending a belated birthday greeting to Avery Brooks, Captain Sisko of Deep Space Nine.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SCOTT
The Captain of the ship and the show
This video from the DVD release of Star Trek Enterprise profiles Bakula’s work on Enterprise, as well has includes interviews with cast and crew discussing how the actor was captain behind the scenes too.
Imagine with Scott
Scott actually shares his birthday with the late John Lennon. Bakula is also an accomplished singer who has appeared in a number of musicals. He showed off his voice talent on an episode of Quantum Leap, singing Lennon’s "Imagine."
Belated Birthday to Avery Brooks
Last week we failed to mention that it was the 61st birthday of the Sisko! Mr. Brooks is a tenured professor at Rutgers and continues to do theater and some voice-over work.
Here is a classic Brooks moment in Deep Space Nine, in the episode "Far Beyond the Stars", which Brooks also directed
Avery also sings, here he is singing at Fan Expo earlier this year
