Percy Rodriguez, R.I.P.

Canadian actor Percy Rodriguez — known to Classic Star Trek fans as Commodore Stone from “Court-Martial” — has passed away.

It’s hard to overstate the impact in 1967 of having Captain Kirk’s superior officer be a black man, and the absolute authority and dignity Rodriguez brought to the part was perfect.

I’m sorry to see him go; I’ve always liked his work. He was born in Montreal in 1924.
