Van Epperson (born 21 February 1957; age 64) is an American actor who appeared in three Star Trek spin-off series. His first Star Trek appearance, as a morgue attendant in the Star Trek: The Next Generation sixth season episode "Time's Arrow, Part II" was deleted from the final version. This would have been "scene 3" in the episode. His second Star Trek appearance was in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine first season episode "Q-Less", where he was a Bajoran clerk in charge of the station's assay office. In his third Star Trek appearance, he played an alien pimp in the Star Trek: Enterprise first season episode "Broken Bow".
Epperson also appeared in Arrested Development, in an episode of the television series Boston Legal (with Star Trek: The Original Series star William Shatner), in the feature film The Green Mile (with fellow Deep Space Nine guest star William Sadler) and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
