Bruce Hyde dies at 74

Have No Fear - O' Rileys Here.




On a sad note, a memorable and well-loved character Lt Riley played by Bruce Hyde, passed away from throat cancer on Oct 13th. He was 74. In Star Trek's classic "the Naked Time", Kevin Riley is the Irish navigator who steals the Enterprise in that episode. He will not be forgotten by fans, RIP Bruce and thanks for making us laugh.

Hydes passing brings the Star Trek count to five for 2015.

Elephant's Child said...

It comes to us all I know, but hopefully the Star Trek count for the year has stopped.

Birgit said...

Oh my-so many from Star Trek dies this year. He was one of my favourites and I wish they would have kept him on. Even in the video you can hear his voice is not good.

He will never be old in Star Trek

That was a great episode. He helped make it be so.

I has no idea who you were talking about until you said he was Irish. He did a wonderful job and a very talented actor. Sad loss

I remember that Reilly made us kids laugh when we watched. One of my brothers went around imitating him until my dad did a 'Gibbs' and slapped him upside the head. Lolol!

I enjoyed watching Hyde's interview. We've lost so many of the original characters. That's sad.

I hadn't heard he had died; sad when we get older and so many we watched on TV or in movies start to pass away.

on another note, wishing you a great Blitz day!

Connie Keller said...

Sad news. I don't remember that episode (I wasn't much of a Trekkie, so I'm going to have to rewatch it--my son will be thrilled.)

Happy Blog Blitz Day!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

I loved Kevin Riley, and I always wished his character had appeared in more episodes.

(Confession time: When my brother and I were kids and played with his Star Trek Enterprise bridge and action figures, I often gave Riley parts in the stories, even if I had to use Chekov's action figure to play him.)

Happy Blitz Day!

Sylvie Grayson said...

I love your blog, even on the sad note of Riley's death.
Happy Blitz Day, and have a look at my sci fi novel at my website

Happy blitz day!

lilicasplace said...

I'm a huge original Star Trek fan, and his loss is saddening. Your tribute to him is awesome. Thank you for that! I always loved that episode and wished he was featured on more episodes back in the day.

BTW, on a brighter note: HAPPY BLOG BLITZ DAY TO YOU!!

Elise Fallson said...

I was sorry to hear the news too. At least he'll live on in the show.
Also, you're awesome, I should visit more often, but I suck at blogging right now. Happy Blitz day!

Cynthia said...

That's sad to hear.

Have a good Blitz Day.

Rhonda Albom said...

Dare I admit, I am not a fan and have never seen Star Trek. Oh well, happy Blitz day. :)

Chippyminton13 said...

I'll be honest - I'm more of a Star Wars fan - the only things I know about Star Trek I know from my mum (who is a Star Trek fan) and The Big Bang Theory.

Happy Belated Blitz Day - I wrote myself a note to remind me to blitz and forgot anyway - doh!
