Lon Suder (Brad Dourif)

Brad Dourif appeared in Meld and Basics as Ensign Lon Suder. Dourif rocketed to fame in 1975 with his Oscar nominated portrayal of mental patient Billy Bibbit in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Dourif is very familiar to genre fans, having appeared on The X-Files, Babylon 5, Millenium, Alien Ressurection, the mini-series Wild Palms, and films such as David Lynch's Dune and as the voice of demon doll Chucky in the Child's Play series. He will be appearing next in the second and third Lord of the Rings feature film adaptations as Grima Wormtongue.

Lon Suder was a mentally unbalanced Betazoid assassin who joined the Voyager crew with the rest of the Maquis after being flung 70,000 light years from the Alpha Quadrant by the Caretaker's array. The telepathic Suder killed fellow crewman Darwin in a murderous rage driven by an unexplicable need to kill. Lt. Tuvok melded with Suder in an attempt to give the troubnled crewman some of his own Vulcan self-discipline, but the meld affected Tuvok, transmitting Suder's sickness to the Vulcan. Suder is sentanced to lfie in the Brig until he can be rehabilitated. When the Kazons and Cardassian spy Seska took over Voyager and stranded the crew on a desloate planet, only Suder and the EMH were left aboard. Suder aided the Doctor in wresting crontrol of the ship from the Kazon, but was killed.
