I quite liked Boothby but more so as the judge from Picket Fences may he rest in peace..
He may have just been able to see a few hours of the 21st century, but Ray Walston will always be remembered for the beloved character of Boothby he brought to life in the 24th century. First appearing as Capt. Picard's mentor in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Walston carried Boothby over to Star Trek: Voyager, using the character as a double for Species 8472 and as part of Chakotay's dream sequence as a boxer.
Walston won two Emmys for his work on Picket Fences, and one a Tony in 1956 for his part in "Damn Yankees." He is best known in pop culture for "My Favorite Martian" and "Stephen King's The Stand."
Ray Walston died of natural causes, his wife of nearly 60 years by his side, on Jan. 1.

I think I will always remember Ray Walston as my favorite kooky alien in "My favorite Martian"
I know I'm showing my age here but he was in all probability my first alien encounter and for that he earns a special place in my memories.
