So, yes, the five years that we`ve been working on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has evidenced a real deepening of all the characters, not only mine.
  • Is mentioned in "Big Lou," the biography of actor Louis Edmonds, because he and Edmonds both starred in an avant garde Broadway play that flopped after just a few performances in the late 1960s. The play was called "Fire!", and it is covered in detail in "Big Lou."
  • Has appeared with Michael Dorn in five different productions: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991), "Aladdin" (1994), "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993), "The Savage Dragon" (1996) and "Captain Simian & The Space Monkeys" (1996).
  • His mother was Princess Laure Louise Napoléone Eugénie Caroline Murat.
  • Siblings: Anne Auberjonois, Michael Auberjonois and 2 stepsisters named Ghislaine Vautier (author) as well as Marie-Laure Degener (opera performer).
  • Both he and his "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" (1993) co-star Colm Meaney appeared in 'Stargate', playing the leader of a human civilisation on another planet whose population lived under the surface. In both cases, the main characters of the series in question attempted to form an alliance and arrange an exchange of technology before learning that this civilisation could not be trusted. Auberjonois played Alar, leader of the Eurondans in the "Stargate SG-1" (1997) episode 'The Other Side'; Meaney played Cowen, leader of the Genii in the "Stargate: Atlantis" (2004) episodes 'Underground' and 'The Storm'.
