    All kidding aside...sad when someone doesn't make it out of their 30's :-(
  5. His character was much more interesting in DS9, but I'm sure that was another actor.

    Agreed. But, having said that... I really detested the character he played on TNG!

    Alexander never had a chance. Raised by a half Klingon who rejected her Klingon half who gets killed so Worf can play the roll of his dad for a while till he gets inconvenient and shipped off to his adopted parents on Earth. He goes back and forth a bit, gets crap for not being a real Klingon, and than when he finally embraces it he's a joke because he wasn't raised with it. Poor kid had a self hating half Klingon for a mom and an absentee dad who got involved when he felt like it.

  8. Those episodes of DS9 featuring Alexander are my picks for the best of the series.

    From what I've read online, sounds like it was a suicide.

    So true.

    Because if you don't laugh then you'll just cry.

    Um, the second one is mean, but the first one, the one with the yelling Klingons... on the show, Klingons howl or roar when one of them dies, to let the warriors in their version of heaven know that another warrior is on their way to join them. It's an appropriate tribute, if you're familiar with the show.

    And yeah, it's really sad.

    I don't remember him from TNG but I most definitely remembered Quinten from Grace Under Fire. R.I.P.
