William Schallert, who had an acting career that spanned more than six decades, encompassing such diverse roles as the father on "The Patty Duke Show" and, most notably to some of us, Nilz Baris, under secretary in charge of agricultural affairs for the United Federation of Planets, on “The Trouble With Tribbles,” one of the best episodes of the original "Star Trek" series, has passed away. He was 93, and had never retired; he recently played roles in series such as "2 Broke Girls," "True Blood," and "Bag of Bones."
