Click to learn more about John Garman (JG) Hertzler!Shakespearean actors are common in Star Trek. Sir Patrick Stewart who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard was one; so was William Shatner, the inimitable Captain James T. Kirk. J.G. Hertzler, one of the most remembered Klingons on Star Trek, follows in their footsteps, or should we say they walk side by side on the Shakespearean stage?

Hertzler is proud of performing Shakespeare on Broadway, often giving him a leg up on the competition when it comes to getting Star Trek gigs because of his considerable experience.

“J.G.” has played seven different characters on the show, a Vulcan, Roy Rittenhouse in an acclaimed Star Trek Deep Space Nine episode, Far Beyond The Stars, A changeling called Laas, a Hirogen fighter in Star Trek Voyager, a holosuite guest in DS9, and at least two other Klingons in Star Trek Enterprise.

One of Hertzler’s first major television roles was a guest spot in the 1990 Quantum Leap episode “Sea Bride – June 3, 1954“, where he appeared with Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell, two other actors who have series links to the Star Trek franchise.

He and his DS9 co-star Armin Shimerman both had voice-over roles in the 2007 computer game BioShock. More recently, Hertzler voiced Captain Benjamin Mathius in the computer game Dead Space.

He has also written two Star Trek novels published by Simon and Schuster that have been very popular with sci-fi fans, a two part story called, “The Left Hand of Destiny”.

J.G Hertzler continues his very exciting career as he participates in an independent film called The God Machine with fellow actors, Jason Carter of Babylon 5, and Marina Sirtis of Star Trek The Next Generation.

The film is currently raising funds from Indiegogo. So, if you have some money to spend, please consider this worthwhile project. You can also visit the Facebook page and the official website.
