(written from a Production point of view)
Judson Earney Scott (born 15 July 1952; age 64) is the actor who first appeared on a Star Trek production in 1982 portraying Joachim in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Despite his having a prominent role in the film, Scott's name was not listed in the film's credits, thanks to an overzealous agent trying to get Scott star billing without his knowledge. (citation needed • edit) Scott moved on and appeared in one episode each of Star Trek: The Next Generation in 1988 and Star Trek: Voyager in 1997.
