Encyclopedia > John Colicos

John Colicos (December 10, 1928 - March 6, 2000) was a Canadian born actor. He is perhaps best remembered for playing the Klingon Kor in Star Trek, as well as playing Count Baltar in the original Battlestar Galactica movie and television series.

Colicos has the distinction of being the first Klingon seen in the Star Trek franchise. About 30 years after his initial appearance in Star Trek, Colicos reprised his role as the 140-year-old Kor for three episodes in Star Trek:Deep Space Nine. He also appeared in TV commercials in the 1990s for America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses.

Colicos' final acting appearance was his reprise of Count Baltar in the concept demonstration trailer "Battlestar Galactica: The Second Coming," aired at many science fiction conventions in 1999.

Colicos' accomplishment is especially welcome, for it illustrates what can be done by long and dedicated hard work without any pronounced help from lady luck.
Colicos makes clear that Macbeth would never have fallen into a career of evil if he had not been forcefully pushed into it by his wife (in fact, the early reign of the historical Macbeth was admirable--one of several aspects of Holinshed's Chronicles that Shakespeare suppressed or changed).
John Cunningham's Malcolm is crisply spoken, but too priggish for my taste; I almost regret that he does gain the throne at the end.
