    John Larroquette Played A Star Trek Klingon Again, 40 Years After He Last Suited Up

    The official synopsis of “The Wrath of Comic-Con” is as follows:

    “When Dan finds a potential love connection with a woman who has sworn to destroy him, Dan takes drastic measures, which include fully embracing the wondrous world of Comic-Con. Meanwhile, Abby is forced to confront the fact that she might actually dislike someone when a childhood ‘friend’ (Jessica St. Clair) comes to visit.”

    Dan Fielding is, for those unlucky enough to have never seen “Night Court,” a devious cad, constantly looking out for number one and eager to scheme and connive to get what he wants. It’s not out of character for him to dress in full Klingon regalia to dupe a potential paramour. Whether or not he calls himself “Maltz” while dressed as a Klingon remains to be seen. In the same Starlog issue mentioned above, Larroquette joked about returning to play Maltz in a “Star Trek” spinoff series, saying that “Maltz starts off and he has a little hot dog stand on Yakka III out there in the Doofus Galaxy.”

    The “Star Trek” connections to “Night Court” don’t stop with Larroquette. Brent Spiner, who played the android Lieutenant Commander Data on “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” also played Bob Wheeler, a recurring unlucky rube, on “Night Court.” Bob Wheeler, always seen with his wife June (Annie O’Donnell), appeared in six episodes of the series, each time telling a sob story even more pathetic than the last. When Spiner landed the “Star Trek” gig, he stopped appearing on “Night Court.”

    Spiner, as far as anyone knows, has given no word as to whether or not he will return to the revived “Night Court.”
