(1949-    ) US actor and author, best known in the former capacity for his role as the Ferengi bartender named Quark in the Television series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993-1999); his first novel, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The 34th Rule (1999) with David R George III, is based on Quark. His Merchant Prince sequence beginning with The Merchant Prince (2000) with Michael Scott (1959-    ) features John Dee who, rescued from prison and placed in Suspended Animation until the year 2099, continues his relationship with Dyckon, member of an Alien race who has been delegated to track the rise of Homo sapiens. But there are opposing forces, whose exposure awakens an obsession with security and surveillance on the part of the Western powers. With his wisdom and his wit, Dee does manage to fend off the End of the World, longing always to return to his own time. [JC]
