Richard Herd, Jr. (born September 26, 1932) is an American actor in television and film. He is well known in the science fiction community for his role in the 1983 NBC miniseries V and the 1984 sequel V: The Final Battle, as John, the Visitors' Supreme Commander. Other major genre roles include recurring parts on the NBC series seaQuest DSV as Admiral William Noyce, and on Star Trek: Voyager as Admiral Owen Paris, the father of Tom Paris. In two guest appearances on Quantum Leap, he played children's show host "Captain Galaxy" (Moe Stein), a would-be time traveler, and a miner named Ziggy Ziganovich. Herd has appeared at a number of fan conventions on the basis of his science fiction roles.

Herd was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Katherine and Richard Herd Sr., who was a train engineer. He made his film debut in Hercules in New York (1970), and at one point served as 3rd National Vice President of the Screen Actors Guild. Herd's first major film role was in the thriller The China Syndrome alongside Jane Fonda, Jack Lemmon and Michael Douglas, where he played the character Evan McCormack, the corrupt Chairman of the California Gas & Electric Board. This role helped make him well-known outside the United States.

In addition to science fiction, he was a regular as Captain Dennis Sheridan on T. J. Hooker from 1982 to 1985, and appeared on Seinfeld as Mr. Wilhelm, George Costanza's boss at the Yankees.

Earl Stone est un paisible horticulteur âgé de plus de 80 ans, vétéran de la guerre de Corée.

On lui demande seulement de transporter des sacs d'une ville à une autre au volant de son pick-up. Il découvre assez rapidement qu'il s'agit de drogue et qu'il travaille pour le compte d’un cartel mexicain : un go fast apaisé, pense-t-il. Mais alors que ses factures passent au rayon des mauvais souvenirs, le poids de son passé refait surface : aider la famille et les amis... et il ne peut s'empêcher de leur venir en aide en poursuivant cette activité. Mais il va falloir faire vite, car Colin Bates, agent de la Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), se met à traquer ce passeur efficace.

Dr. Eric Norris remains wracked with guilt after a terrible tragedy that cost him his family, and when he learns that an alien parasite is not only growing inside him but shares his DNA, he develops a fiercely paternal bond with the creature. The alien "might regenerate into a surrogate son to replace his own child who was lost years earlier." Koenig plays the antagonist, a scientific research institute administrator who dislikes Norris because he had been mutually in love with Norris's wife, who died; he blames Norris for his own now bleak life and enjoys insulting him. Norris, new love interest Amanda, and attorney Howard Ellis must defend the new child, Benjamin, from being imprisoned by government forces or, worse, destroyed. The courtroom trial covers such issues as habeas corpus and miscegenation.

Joseph is the youngest of Jacob's eleven sons and a favorite of his father's; thus inciting the brothers' jealousy when Joseph grows conceited and arrogant when constantly pampered by his parents. When he receives a beautiful coat from his father, his brothers fear that he may become the clan's leader upon their father's death. One evening, Joseph dreams that the sheep his brothers are tending are attacked by wolves. Later, a wolf pack attacks the flock and Joseph is nearly killed until Jacob saves him. Jacob becomes furious that Joseph was abandoned by his brothers, and amazed that Joseph's dream came true. Judah, the eldest of the brothers and their leader, merely dismisses this. The next night, Joseph dreams that his brothers each carry sheaves of wheat that bow to Joseph's gigantic sheaf, and that he is a brilliant star surrounded by ten smaller stars and the sun and the moon; and Jacob predicts that Joseph shall supersede his brothers. The latter retreat to a cave and determine to do away with Joseph. Joseph overhears this, and the brothers tear his cloak and hurl him into a pit until nightfall. When withdrawn, Joseph is sold to desert slave traders, and thence into Egypt, while his brothers tell their father that he was killed by wolves.
