Ronny Cox on how Captain Jellico helped Star Trek: The Next Generation

Captain Jellico was a polarizing character when he first appeared on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Not a particularly well-liked character, Captain Jellico came aboard the Enterprise in the sixth season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. In the two part episode, Chain of Command, he made abrupt changes that, while the fans might not have liked, the actors actually did. And some of those alterations helped the show.

Interview: Ronny Cox On Jellico’s Enduring Legacy In ‘Star Trek: Prodigy’ And ‘The Next Generation’

In October at New York Comic Con the big midseason announcement for Star Trek: Prodigy was the return of Ronny Cox as Edward Jellico. His no-nonsense Captain Jellico in the classic Star Trek: The Next Generation two-part episode “Chain of Command” is still remembered (and debated) to this day. 30 years later Ronny Cox is voicing Admiral Jellico, Starfleet’s commander-in-chief and Vice Admiral Janeway’s boss on Star Trek: Prodigy. In an exclusive interview with TrekMovie Cox talks about the impact of his original run on TNG, his return to the franchise, and why he thinks everyone would be better off if they just listened more to Jellico.
