James W. Jansen (born 27 July 1945; age 77), sometimes credited as Jim Jansen, first appeared as Faren Kag in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine first season episode "The Storyteller" and Lucsly in the fifth season episode "Trials and Tribble-ations".

Jansen also provided additional voices for the video game Star Trek: Armada.

Interestingly, his character's name in "Trials and Tribble-ations" is an anagram of Scully's from The X-Files. Jansen appeared in the pilot episode of that series as Dr. Heitz Werber and reprised the role five years later in the episodes "Patient X" and "The Red and the Black".

In 2001, he appeared in the made-for-TV docudrama Surviving Gilligan's Island: The Incredibly True Story of the Longest Three Hour Tour in History as TV Guide Rep., alongside fellow Star Trek alumni Aaron Lustig, Steve Vinovich, Michael Wiseman, Alexander Enberg, Christopher Neiman, and Ray Buktenica.

In 2003, he appeared in the made-for-TV docudrama Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt as William Dozier, alongside fellow Star Trek alumni Jason Marsden, Frank Gorshin, Lee Merriweather, Julie Newmar, Steve Blalock, Ivar Brogger, Ray Buktenica, Christopher Darga, Todd Merrill, Brett Rickaby, Julia Rose, Joel Swetow, and Steve Vinovich.

In 2011, Jansen made a guest appearance on the NBC series Parks and Recreation, whose regular cast includes Adam Scott.
