Veteran genre actor Tony Todd (Kurn) will lend his voice talent to the upcoming computer game sequel 'Elite Force II.'
Todd will play the part of Korban, the Klingon member of the Hazard Team, game designer Chris Stockman said at official Ritual fan site Ritualistic.com. According to the site, Korban joined Starfleet after the Dominion War, and is adept at using both the Klingon bat'leth and heavy weaponry.
Best known to Trek fans for his performances as Worf's brother Kurn and the adult Jake Sisko in DS9's 'The Visitor,' Todd recorded his lines in Los Angeles earlier this month. "Tony was absolutely fantastic to work with and I look forward to hearing his lines in the actual game," Stockman wrote.
While most of the voice actors for the game have yet to be announced, one confirmed cast member is Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), who also recorded his lines recently. "Patrick is one of the best actors around and he did a wonderful job with all his lines," Stockman said. "I can't wait to actually hear him in the game!" Tim Russ will also reportedly reprise his Voyager role of Lt. Commander Tuvok.
The sequel to the popular first-person shooter 'Star Trek: Voyager: Elite Force,' 'Elite Force II' sees the Hazard Team assigned to the Enterprise-E after Voyager's return to the Alpha Quadrant in 'Endgame.' The game features eleven levels, thirteen types of weaponry, new alien races, and even a fight in zero gravity.
