Defiant helmsman in First Contact?

Does anyone know who played this character during the battle with the Borg cube at the beginning of the film? He was shown for just a few seconds but had a couple lines during that time. I have watched the movie a few times lately and I swear I have seen him somewhere else but can't place it. I have looked through IMDB and MA but don't see it. Thanks.

Wow that was fast thanks! I couldn't find it in any of the film's cast listings. But there it is on his IMDB page.

Wow, TIL that Adam Scott was in Star Trek! I love that guy. Hilarious.

I finished an episode and it said the next one is “not available for direct streaming”.

I reloaded Netflix and tried to search for it and it was gone.

I did a search and apparently September 30 was the last day it would be on Netflix 😭😭😭

I made it to S5E22…I am sad. I’m also laughing that this happened.

Alas.

EDIT: I’m in the US, for everyone asking.

As we know Star Trek tended to have a problem with how it wrote its female characters.

- As much as I like Uhura, TOS didn't really give her much to do and in most episodes she simply took communications and hails and sat there on the bridge.

- Troi had a similar problem of not given much to do in the first half of TNG then sense things (I'm sensing....hostility, Captain!), and a lot of her focus episodes simply make her a victim of something that was happening to her (forced to give birth, or turning old, etc). And while Dr. Crusher was intelligent and used well, she didn't really get as much a character arc as all the male characters and faded to the sidelines when she wasn't focused on.

Major Kira had none of these problems. She's introduced as an important character right from the first season, and being a Bajoran where the entire series is centered around the Bajoran/Cardassian conflict, she's a major focus point of every season. She's also strong, confident, fought in wars and killed her oppressors for 24 years before the show even started, has a great character arc over all 7 seasons, and is probably one of the most feminist characters of the series.

And yet I never see her character recognized much or brought up in terms of iconic female characters from Star Trek. Why is that?

I love that when one of them says something happened the rest swing into action. Doesn't matter if it's only a 0.0001% chance, they're on board straight away and if the scanners find nothing they don't say "You're wrong." they check to see if the sensors are wrong.

This crew's experiences in space have left them with the understanding that weird stuff is going to go down so that even when someone like Barclay says something crazy happened they'll pull the transporters apart looking for the reason.

So different from other shows, even within the Star Trek universe.

Looking back it almost feels strangely predictive of the future in an internet society where so much pop culture is communicated by memes and references to movies, TV, TikTok, etc.

I work in an office with a bunch of nerds (of which I am one too). It became painfully obvious that most of them were completely clueless to pop culture and most of my jokes and references go right over their heads, and just like Dathon I can't even express simple concepts without being quite literal. The youngest of our group is fresh out of college and he misses pop culture references by virtue of being too young to have seen/heard them.

And now after typing all that out, I feel especially old. haha

Anyways, Happy Darmok and Jalad Day!

At the end of the film when the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-A is being constructed in time-lapse, you can make out another starship in a blink-and-you'll-miss it way. It is the U.S.S. Salcombe NCC-2107.

This ship always intrigued me, so I made my own CGI version of the ship based on some clear references. I present the U.S.S. Salcombe in its full glory. Right click and open in new tab to see full 2K resolution renders.

The more Kira hated Dukat and argued with him, the more it turned Dukat on because that's how Cardassians express sexual interest.

Riker was born 2335, Sisko 2332 and Janeway 2336 so Riker was a freshman when Sisko was a senior and a Sophomore when Janeway was a freshman.

Edit: Janeway attended with Sisko too. Late birthday somewhere maybe?
