Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) (part 9 of 9)
Elsewhere on the ship, Ru’afo is standing at a control panel when Dougherty comes in and tells him they’re leaving. Ru’afo snaps, and beats him up, tossing him over rails, and slamming him headfirst through glass. Eventually, he throws Dougherty into a chair and uses the face-stretching device on him, which somehow kills him instantly. So, essentially, Dougherty just got face-lifted to death. Not much more I can add to that, is there?
Oddly enough, this is the second time Anthony Zerbe has played a villain who dies by having something rather nasty done to his head. The first time was in Licence to Kill, where he’s thrown into a decompression chamber and his head explodes. See, this film is constantly reminding me of better things I could be doing. Not watching Licence to Kill—I mean, I would rather be experiencing my head exploding in a decompression chamber.
