British actor and voice actor William Morgan Sheppard has died aged 86.

He is best-known for his work on Star Trek across the years, playing the Rura Penth commandant in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, the chief Vulcan Science Council minister in 2009’s Star Trek, Data’s “grandfather” Ira Graves in The Next Generation episode “The Schizoid Man,” and as Quatai in the Star Trek: Voyager episode “Bliss.”

He appeared in the opening episode of series six of Doctor Who, in an episode titled “The Impossible Astronaut”. In it, he played the older version of the character Canton Everett Delaware III, while his son, Mark Sheppard, played the younger version.

The two also starred as older and younger versions of the same character on NCIS.

In a statement posted on Instagram, his son said: “We went to spend some time with my father today. Though he couldn’t speak, we held hands, he laughed and was so happy to see us. We left and came home.

“A good day. He was rushed to hospital and passed at 6:30pm, my mother by his side. I am so grateful that he didn’t have to suffer any longer. Thank you for all your kind thoughts, love and prayers.”

Born in 1932, Sheppard graduated from RADA (the Royal Academy Drama of Art) in 1958, before serving 12 years as an associate artist with the Royal Shakespeare Company and appearing in Broadway productions of Marat/Sade and Sherlock Holmes.
Other roles include Blank Reg on the TV series Max Headroom and Confederate general Isaac Trimble in the films Gettysburg and Gods and Generals.

He also played two different roles on the series Babylon 5, the soul hunter in the episode of the same name and Narn war leader G’Sten, an uncle of main character G’Kar, in “The Long Twilight Struggle”.

I have seen William Morgan Sheppard in so much, going back to Max Headroom. So many parts in Star Trek.
I hadn't realised that Mark Sheppard (Badger from Firefly) was his son.

Sad to see him go, but he left so much.

William Morgan Sheppard was one of the best That Guys. He had such a distinctive voice and grizzled face that you couldn't help but recognize him in all the bajillion films and shows he had been in. I'm pretty sure the voice actor for Dr. Gero for DBZ Abridged based his performance on Sheppard.

Somewhere in southern England.

Comedian Jeremy Hardy dies of caner, aged only 57.

It's very young.

Actor Clive Swift dies after a short illness, aged 82.

That's a good innings by the standards of his age group.

Real shame about Hardy, I'm going to miss his Radio 4 appearances. He had a wonderful intelligence and subtlety to his humour while still cutting brutally deep with his satirical observations, never one to pull a punch in that regard. 57 is no age these days, far too young.

Deepest apologies if this doesn't belong in here, but 15 years into its 90-day mission the Mars exploration robot Opportunity has finally expired. It got us lots of good pictures and scientific data about Mars in the course of its mission, and has hopefully deepened humanity's understanding of the universe.

Technically it has been unresponsive since last summer, but as of today NASA finally pronounced its mission ended.

Opportunity's last words to NASA were “my battery is low and it's getting dark.”

What you may not have heard is NASA's last words TO Opportunity: as a final transmission to the rover, they played Billie Holiday's "I'll Be Seeing You."

Actually I just read that a couple of days ago on Facebook. And the comparison to that song from Silent Running is very apt.
