Eric Menyuk (born 5 November 1959; age 64) is the actor who played the Traveler in the Star Trek: The Next Generation first, fourth, and seventh season episodes "Where No One Has Gone Before", "Remember Me", and "Journey's End". He reprised this role in Star Trek: Prodigy episode "The Devourer of All Things, Part I".

Menyuk originally auditioned for the role of Data, only to be beaten out by Brent Spiner. His costume from the episode "Remember Me" was later sold off on the web. [1]

He also guest starred in Cheers, Married... with Children (with Gene LeBell) and Matlock. He also had a supporting role in the fantasy comedy Ghost Dad (1990, with Dakin Matthews, Jeanne Mori, and Ivonne Perez).

His appearances in law-oriented television series such as Hill Street Blues, Night Court (with John Larroquette), Matlock, and Diagnosis: Murder were perhaps predictive, as Menyuk is now an attorney.
