Brock Peters, best known for his role as Tom Robinson, the black man falsely convicted of raping a white woman in To Kill a Mockingbird, died yesterday, peacefully in bed, at 78.

I, being a Star Trek fan, will always better remember him for playing Admiral Cartwright in Star Trek IV and Star Trek VI, as well as Benjamin Sisko's father Joseph. I'll cry a small tear the next time I hear Joseph Sisko's line about dragging that alligator back up to the ceiling every night.

He definitely made an impression on a lot of people, and of course he was an important part of one of the most historically significant movies ever. He had a sincere quality to his performances, something that you can't teach.

Brock, you'll be missed! Thanks for the memories!

A distinctive man with a distinctive voice. He will be sorely missed.

We're the middle children of purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our great war, our defining crucible, is a spiritual war.
