My mom had to tell me he was Hawk on the show. I remember it but Robert Urich was the only one I really remembered. I was impressed with him on DS9.SFH was a pretty nifty show. I hated how Hawk was the sidekick. But I like how he joined Starfleet and became one of their most important commanding officers.
I remember seeing Avery Brooks at Dragoncon. They were doing the Q&A like it was a late night talk show. He acted like he didn't want to be there, and the host had a hard time getting him to talk. Michael Dorn was much more forthcoming.
