Rob LaBelle, who has a role on the Sci-Fi Channel series 'First Wave' as 'Crazy Eddie' Nambulous, will be appearing on 'Star Trek: Voyager' for one of the final episodes of the season. In doing so, he will be re-visiting one of his earliest roles on television.

In 'Destiny', the second-to-last regular episode of the season, LaBelle will be playing a Talaxian, the same species as Neelix. Previously it was already reported that the episode will deal with Neelix trying to rescue a colony of besieged Talaxians.

LaBelle already appeared on Voyager as the first Talaxian besides Neelix that viewers ever saw, in the first-season episode 'Faces', where he played a Talaxian prisoner. The actor also appeared in the third-season episode 'False Profits' as Kafar.

Currently, LaBelle plays one of the main characters on 'First Wave'. In addition, he appeared in last Monday's episode of 'Dark Angel', where he teamed up with the character on that series played by John Savage (Captain Ransom in Voyager's 'Equinox'). More on that role can be found here at the Sci-Fi Wire.
