Back in 1994, Casey portrayed Lt. Commander Calvin Hudson in the DS9 episodes "The Maquis, Part 1" and "The Maquis, Part 2."

"I've not followed any of the Trek series but have seen episodes now and again," Casey told Ian Spelling of the New York Times Syndicate in a 1994 interview. "I did `The Maquis' because I wanted to work with Avery Brooks, whom I admire as an actor."

Casey was also a respected poet and painter whose art was displayed in galleries worldwide. Please join in offering condolences to Casey's family, friends, colleagues and fans.
