Dennis Madalone Interview. Dennis Madalone was the stunt coordinator for seasons 3 through 7 of The Next Generation and all of Deep Space Nine and Voyager. He also did stunts and played many characters from the first season of The Next Generation all the way to the final season of Voyager. Dennis Madalone's work on episodes that required stunts had an important influence on hundreds of Star Trek episodes from 1987 to 2001. In this episode of Earl Grey, host Justin Oser interviews Dennis Madalone about his role as the stunt coordinator for 19 seasons of Star Trek, including 5 seasons of The Next Generation, all 7 seasons of Deep Space Nine and all 7 seasons of Voyager, as well as the many stunts and acting roles that he did on Star Trek from 1987 to 2001.
