He was with Leonard Nimoy for both his first (the first Star Trek pilot, “The Cage”) and last (the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Unification II”) Star Trek appearances on television. He also appeared in two other productions with Leonard Nimoy: Mission: Impossible (1967, 1969, also with Lee Meriwether, Vic Perrin, Ed McCready and Paul Sorenson) and the TV movie Assault on the Wayne (1971, also with Lloyd Haynes and William Windom).
