Christopher Neame (born 12 September 1947; age 68) is a British actor who portrayed Unferth in VOY: "Heroes and Demons" and the German General in ENT: "Storm Front" and "Storm Front, Part II".

Neame is one of the very small number of actors to have appeared in both the Star Trek and Doctor Who franchises. In Neame's case his Doctor Who appearance was never shown on television although it was released on VHS; he played the villain Skagra in the serial Shada, which was partially filmed during Doctor Who's 1979-1980 season but abandoned due to a BBC strike; it was later reconstructed for home video release.

Like Guy Siner, W. Morgan Sheppard and Robin Sachs, Neame has achieved the trifecta of roles in Star Trek, Doctor Who and Babylon 5. In 1994, Neame appeared in the Babylon 5 episode "And the Sky Full of Stars", as Knight Two, alongside Judson Scott. (His role had originally been offered to Walter Koenig who was unable to accept for health reasons. Koenig would end up play the semi-regular role of Bester on the series). [1] Neame also appeared as Colonel Quute in the Blake's 7 episode "Traitor".

Neame also portrayed the Dark Lord Jerec in the cutscenes for the video game Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, where he co-starred with Bennet Guillory, Valerie Wildman and Time Winters.
