Skalaar (2153)

Skalaar (2153)
Gender: Male
Species: Tellarite
Occupation: Bounty hunter
Status: Alive (2153)
Played by: Jordan Lund

Skalaar was a Tellarite captain turned bounty hunter who operated in the 2150s. He owned and commanded a ship, the Tezra, where his brother Gaavrin worked as the chief engineer.

He and his brother used the ship to work for the Tellarite Mining Consortium. Skalaar retrofitted the ship's engines himself. The Tezra was seized by the Klingon Empire after Skalaar crossed into Klingon territory while hauling fire salt.

He became a bounty hunter to pay the impound fee; however, the ship had been cannibalized by the Klingons several years earlier. During his time as a bounty hunter, he made enemies with another bounty hunter named Kago-Darr.

In 2153, he captured the Human Jonathan Archer, who had been the only person to ever escape Rura Penthe, and on whom the Klingons had put a high price. Skalaar met Archer and his ship, the Enterprise, in orbit of a Class M planet, where he tricked him into going to the airlock, where Skalaar kidnapped him after a small struggle. He brought him aboard his ship and headed to a Tellarite space station where his brother worked. He later headed towards Klingon space. (ENT: "Bounty")

Skalaar was played by actor Jordan Lund.
This character was originally not intended to be Tellarite. "[He] was originally a non-descript alien," offered Mike Sussman, "but making him a familiar species helped jump-start the episode." (Star Trek Monthly issue 108,  p. 48)
Skalaar was fairly successful with the production staff of Star Trek: Enterprise. Executive Producer Brannon Braga remarked, "We really liked the way Skalaar turned out." (Star Trek: Communicator issue 145, pp. 31-32)
