February 13, 2006 saw the end of yet another brilliant acting career.
Andreas Karsalas, better know in Trek lore as Commander Tomalak, died of cancer at the age of 59. Andreas had been bitten by the acting bug at the early age of 4, when his mother had taken him to a theater production in St. Louis, MO. He started his career off in the theater, doing innovative plays and productions. During a hiatus from theater, Andreas was cast, with a small recurring part, in the movie "The Sicilian." He was encouraged to use this role as a springboard into a movie career. He hsa since starred in many made-for-tv movies and tv shows. He is probably better know to Sci-Fi fans as G'Kar from Babylon 5.
Andreas. Thank you for adding your talents to the Star Trek universe. You will continue to live on in our minds as Tomalak, and will be missed.
