Actor Ray Walston, best known to Star Trek fans for his turns as the curmudgeonly Starfleet Academy groundskeeper Boothby, has passed away at age 86. Walston is probably best remembered for another famous 1960's sci-fi show, playing the title character of the classic show My Favorite Martian.

According to his agent Harry Gold, the veteran actor died of natural causes on Monday at his Beverly Hills home. Walston's television career began in 1949 with an appearance on the program Suspense, and his versatility allowed him to play all kinds of roles, with appearances in such varied shows as The Wild, Wild West, Mission Impossible, Little House on the Prairie, Night Court, Murder, She Wrote, L.A. Law and Ally McBeal.

Walston's film career was just as impressive, with roles in films including "South Pacific," "Damn Yankees!," "The Apartment," "The Sting," "Popeye" and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

Walston's first appearance in the Star Trek universe came in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The First Duty." He reprised the role for the two Star Trek: Voyager episodes "In the Flesh" and "The Fight."

Maybe the nicest [people] of all involved with Star Trek. I was honored to share a scene with him."
