Timothy Bond (born 19 February 1942; age 71) directed two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, "The Vengeance Factor" and "The Most Toys". Bond received Gemini Award nominations for his work on Paramount Television's Friday the 13th: The Series and the CBS series Top Cops.
Bond made his directorial debut with the 1977 science fiction film Deadly Harvest, starring "The Most Toys" performer Nehemiah Persoff as well as Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country actress Kim Cattrall. In addition, Bond has worked with a few regular Star Trek performers outside of Trek. He directed Star Trek: Deep Space Nine star Nana Visitor in a 1986 episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents entitled "Happy Birthday". More recently, Bond worked with Star Trek: The Original Series star, William Shatner, in the 1994 TV movie TekWar: TekLab, based on Shatner's TekWar novels.
His many other TV directorial credits include Touched by an Angel (working with Charles Rocket), Forever Knight, Sliders (an episode featuring Karen Austin), Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and Mutant X. He has also directed over a dozen made-for-TV movies as well as a number of feature films. Among the latter are the 1992 science fiction adventures The Lost World and Return to the Lost World, starring John Rhys-Davies and David Warner, and the 1998 sci-fi thriller The Shadow Men, featuring Dean Stockwell and Andrew Prine.
