The Cult-TV Faces of: Old Age


  1. I absolutely love that you included the older Jake Sisko (Tony Todd) from DS9's THE VISITOR episode, John. Way to go!

  2. Ah, photos for the new year... let's see now...

    #6) I know is from TNG, but apart from a vague 'Dorian Grey' impression, I'm getting nothing further.

    #7) An old Dr. Pulaski from ST:TNG

    #11 & #12) John & Aeryn from Farscape (episode : "The Locket" if I'm not mistaken)

  3. Hi Le0pard 13: I love that episode. It's my favorite ep of DS9 and my candidate for best episode, actually. I want to do a cult-tv flashback on it soon..."

    Hi Woodchuckgod -- new photos for a new year, indeed! You recognized Dr. Pulaski from TNG "Unnatural Selection" and also John and Aeryn of Farscape from the heart-breaking (and great episode) "The Locket." Nicely done!

    best to you both,

  4. That TNG episode? As I understand it, the character was originally written as James T. Kirk but, fortunately, the script underwent a few changes...

    6. Admiral Mark Jameson (Clayton Rohner) from Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Too Short a Season" (1988)

    #4) John Koenig, Space: 1999 episode 'Black Sun'


  6. Excellent. Aging is always a fascinating subject. I really look forward to The Locket.

    One thing is certain, some make-up artists were indeed far better than others, while others may have been going with something more sinister based on the story thread.

    I think Space:1999 takes it as one of the best. Cheers my friend. SFF

  7. 2. William Shatner as James T. Kirk (Star Trek:"The Deadly Years")
    3. Cathy Lee Crosby as Helen Surtees, "The Youth Stealer," in "Kolchak:The Night Stalker"
    8-9. Scully and Mulder from "The X-Files."

    I recognize the Star Trek and X-Files images.

    Here's one you didn't list: "Brief Candle" from the first season of Stargate SG-1, which is a Deadly Years-type episode, although I realize you haven't really watched G-1. To be fair, although I remembered the episode, I had to look up the title.
