Robin Sachs (5 February 19511 February 2013; age 61) is the actor who played General Valen in the Star Trek: Voyager seventh season episode "The Void".

He had previously auditioned for the roles of Benjamin Sisko in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and The Doctor in Voyager as well as four or five other guest characters on the latter series. [1]

He is perhaps best known for his role as Ethan Rayne in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer (in which he appeared with his fellow Voyager guest stars Armin Shimerman and Harry Groener, although he shared scenes with neither). He also appeared on several episodes of Babylon 5.

His film credits include Jurassic Park: The Lost World (1997, with Harvey Jason), Galaxy Quest (1999), and Ocean's Eleven (2001). He voiced the character Zaeed Massani in the video games Mass Effect 2 (2010) and Mass Effect 3 (2012). He was a BioWare regular, voicing Admiral Saul Karath in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Lord Pyral Harrowmont and Murdock in Dragon Age: Origins, and Seneschal Varel in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening. One of his final works was voicing Zaeed for the Mass Effect 3: Citadel DLC.

Operation: TRIBUTE is a tribute to Robin Sachs, who passed away on 1 February 2013. The operation goals are earning points with the M-8 Avenger and Inferno Grenades, referencing Zaeed's old Avenger rifle and his loyalty power in Mass Effect 2.

Sachs died from a heart attack, his body being discovered on what would have been his 62nd birthday. [2] [3]
