These days, there are all sorts of third parties in American elections. But only Tomkins County, New York can claim representation with the Klingon Empire, after voters elected a prolific “Star Trek” guest actor to a local town board Tuesday.
John Hertzler, according to the Star Trek wiki Memory-Alpha, is one of a handful of actors who have played more than seven roles, including the Klingon general Martok, in the enduring and popular science fiction franchise. Hertzler was elected to the Ulysses Town Board for a two year period Tuesday, Albany Watch Blog reports.
Nevertheless, the newly elected board member’s professional experience suggests he is a force to be reckoned with. According to Memory-Alpha, Markok’s “brilliant leadership during the Dominion War made him very popular both among other warriors and among the civilian population. As the leader of the House of Martok, he became a good friend of Worf while the two were stationed together on Deep Space 9.”
Um? But? Was he running under a Klingon platform?
I wonder what he looks like without his makeup? Michael Dorn is almost unrecognizable without his Worf makeup on. It's the voice though that gives him away.
I'd love to see him shout some Klingon words at his opponent in a political debate.
"Sa' Martok 'ej, qagho' jIH Hoch batlh Hutlh!"
(I am general Martok and I will crush you, as you have no honor!)
