We were right across from each other for years on the lot, but I never met Jeri Ryan until Boston Public.
  • Along with Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, John de Lancie, Michael Ansara and Richard Poe, he is one of six actors to play the same character on three different 'Star Trek' series. He played Quark in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987), "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) and "Star Trek: Voyager" (1995).
  • Was on the set of "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) during a large earthquake in Los Angeles. He rushed to go home to check on his family, so he did not have time to get his makeup removed. His Ferengi makeup "scared the living shit out of people" as he says at conventions.
  • Was the first actor ever to play a Ferengi on Star Trek, as "Letek" on the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987) episode "The Last Outpost." Five years later, he was offered the role of Quark on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993), the first Ferengi character in the main cast of any Star Trek series and a role that he would play for seven years.
  • Along with Mark Allen Shepherd, Patrick Stewart and Colm Meaney, he is one of only four actors to appear in the pilots of two different 'Star Trek' series. ("Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) and "Star Trek: Voyager" (1995)).
  • Along with Marina Sirtis, Tim Russ and Ethan Phillips, he is one of only three "Star Trek" regulars to appear in three different "Star Trek" series ("Star Trek: The Next Generation" (1987), "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) and "Star Trek: Voyager" (1995)).
