Veteran actor Richard Herd has entertained film and TV audiences from the 1970’s with ‘The China Syndrome,’ ‘All The Presidents Men,’ and sci-fi favorites such as the original ‘V’ and 'Star Trek: Voyager.’ GalaxyFest proudly welcomes Richard Herd to their fabulous convention Feb 21-23 at the Antlers Hilton in Colorado Springs. Most have seen him and just can’t quite place the name. Fresh off filming the new TV pilot 'Star Trek: Renegades' where he will reprise his role as Admiral Paris, at 82 Herd is full of creativity, talent, and energy. Recently celebrating his 60th year as a professional actor, this actor’s appearance at GalaxyFest will be a must see.

Q. Are you looking forward to coming to Colorado Springs for the GalaxyFest Convention?

A. Yes, I’ve been there many times. I’ve done a charitable golf event. I also did a one man show on Cecil B. DeMille at the Arvada Playhouse. I love the scenery of the mountains. I made it to the top of Pikes Peak and it was just beautiful. I’ve played multiple other events as far back as 35 years ago. I know I will enjoy the GalaxyFest and look forward to meeting everyone.

Q. Tell all my sci-fi readers about your role as Admiral Paris in the TV series pilot 'Star Trek: Renegades'.

A. I’m playing Admiral Paris again. They did a very good pilot and they’re still wrapping up on the special effects. Tim Russ directed it and is in it plus a lot of various sci-fi shows over the years are in the show. They’re hoping to get it on a cable station. Every generation rediscovers Star Trek. All these young people have come along and know me as the alien commander from ‘V’ and they may not have even been born yet. Walter Koenig and I did a sci-fi show in Denver five or six years ago by David Mamet called 'Duck Variations'.’

Q. Are you a fan of the Sci-Fi genre or do you lean towards other genres?

A. I’ve never really differentiated because if it’s a good role, it’s a good role. If it’s placed in an alien situation in another universe of someone’s living room, or a western. I just look at the part. When I was doing Next Gen they made all the wardrobe handmade and tailored to me. I even did ‘I Married a Monster from Outer Space’ and ‘Yesterday’s Target.’
