Lieutenant Jones

Bluebeard1Bluebeard1 ✭✭✭✭✭
I was cruising IMDB and noticed an unknown charachter that apparently appeared in 56 episodes of DS9, more that either Garak or Nog. I was curious about this guy I had never noticed.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1452877/?ref_=ttfc_fc_cl_t10

It seems that aside from his heavy presence in DS9, Lieutenant Jones was also in 2 movies and 33 episodes of TNG as one of the most prolific uncredited extras I've ever heard of.

https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Jones_(Lieutenant)

He battled the Borg twice, travelled in time to 2063 and 2267, fought in and survived the Dominion war and never got past the rank of lieutenant.

When do we get a card for this apparently epic crewmember? After all 89 episodes and 2 movies is more than some main characters have managed.

    Add in Ensign/Lt Jae and we can start a new collection of largely uncredited background crew. ;)


    There were others too, just can’t think of names right now.

    Rostov, Crewman Cutler, ensign Masaro. Mary Hart also appeared briefly and had a line

    I was thinking mainly of folks who were in dozens of episodes, but only in the background (like Jones & Jae), but yeah those guys would work too I suppose.

    Billy Blackburn played the White Rabbit, The Gorn, a Klingon, Lt. Hadley many times on the bridge (at what would be Chekov's tactical station), an Organian, one of Mudd's Androids, and several other on screen roles in TOS. Surely we can put another one of his characters to good use in the game!

    Patricia Tallman - Lyta Alexander from B5 - was the stunt double of, like, everyone, as well as a bunch of one-shot non-stunt roles - Memory Alpha's got photos of them all, which is pretty fun to study in detail on the stunt ones. I'd love to see any of her actual-role roles in the game, and there could also be a pretty decent collection of other characters who've briefly been her for the purposes of being shot or knocked over or thrown through a glass table and so on.

    I’ve long been a fan of these types of characters: we’re also in need of any of the roles played by Thomas Kopache (Kira Taban comes to mind as low-hanging fruit). Maybe we could get a few of these in advance of the release of the Lower Decks animated series? An extended tie-in would tickle many of us, I am sure.

    Engisn/Lieutenant Russell served proudly on both the Enterprise-D and Voyager.

    Lt Jones was apparently played played by Randy James who, among other credits, was also a Russian Seaman In The Hunt for Red October.

    Either way, it sounds fishy to me, but here is his bio on memory alpha :

    As for the uncredited comms officer in ST:VI that is none other than Christian Slater (a well known actor with quite a resume)

    What about the defiant conn officer, played by Adam Scott (Ben Wyatt from Parks and Rec)

    Yeah, he's a one off... but I like the actor

    Maybe a "Lower Decks" event with some of the background crew who have outsized fan followings.

    If so, we can't forget about Ensign Gates. She had a pretty long tour on the Enterprise-D and was at the helm in "All Good Things..."!

    @Dirk Gunderson

    Literally only had a few lines at the start of the film, but he did have "sir.. it's the enterprise".

    Oh yeah - the film was First Contact.
    Meant to mention it in the earlier post.

    My favorite background character is Ayala from Voyager. I believe he has the most appearances of any extra character.
  • What about Lt. Carrey, he’s featured in plenty of VOY esipodes

    Yes, Ayala would be another one (over 100 episodes I think). There were also Leslie and Kyle from TOS and besides Jae TNG had I think it was Wallace & Gates.

    I knew the exact scene and could even remember his face but never put two and two together...and here I thought I had a good handle on all of the unheralded Trek guest stars that went on to bigger and better things. :)

    The dates don't line up, but I still like to think of his cameo as the best Leslie Knope gift ever.

    Second best:

    Well, we got Money. Who was played by a stunt woman in like ten Enterprise episodes. Might be time for more "Uncredited" crew......


    https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/S._Money

    She was my first Immortalized in game.




    I tell ya what. Load the kitchen sink into Tube Two!!!!!

    I suppose technically it'd make him a non-canon character, but if we could get Jones with a 'Temporal Agent' trait like Daniels that'd make my day.

    Yes, he is. But I can't find the website, where all crewmembers were listed by their number of appearances.

    There were minor crewmembers, who had more appearances than the main cast. And Ayala was the best in topping all of them.

    Correct
  • FlemmingFlemming ✭✭✭✭✭
    Ensign/Lt Russel was in 71 episodes. Likewise, horribly overlooked by Disruptor Beam

    So we have a small bridge crew here:
    Jones as Engineer
    Jae as Flight Controller
    Ayala as Security
    Russell as Operations
    One can add Kellogg at Tactical.
    We need someone for Medical.
