Wow. A whole week of Daily Sketches. It’s been a while since we had that happen, but it feels pretty good. Like that old blanket or pair of worn fit blue jeans. Like an old song that keeps you humming all day long. You get the picture.
Today’s offering, my third favorite Star Trek Captain, Captain Sisko from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine- I know, I know. Some of you are thinking Sisko was a Commander, not a Captain but Sisko was promoted to Captain during his command of Deep Space Nine. Portrayed by actor Avery Brooks (who is also well known for his role as Hawk on the TV show Spencer For Hire with Robert Urich), Brooks is a tenured professor of Theatre at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, something he continued to do, even while filming Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Here is another bit of trivia for you- Brooks’s Captain Benjamin Sisko was ranked #50 in list of the “50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time” according June 20th, 2004 issue of TV Guide. And, Sisko is the only character to appear in all 176 episodes (that is 7 seasons) of the series.
See you on Monday,
PS- Who can tell me what “Gitchee-gitchee-goo” means.
