René Auberjonois, From Benson and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Dead at 79
René Auberjonois, best known for his roles on Benson and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, died on Sunday of metastatic lung cancer, his son confirmed to the Associated Press. He was 79.

Auberjonois got his big break in 1970 when he was cast as Father John Mulcahy in the 1970 film Mash. He worked steadily over the next decade before he landed the series-regular role of Clayton Runnymede Endicott III on ABC’s Benson, which earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy in 1984. Then, from 1993 to 1999, Auberjonois portrayed Odo, head of space-station security on the syndicated DS9.
