There are certain actors that whenever they show up, I’m pretty sure they’re the villain. James Cromwell is one of them. Even when he’s not the primary antagonist, he’s still usually up to something. It even holds true in Star Trek: First Contact, where he plays the inventor of warp drive technology. Sure, he helps the crew of the Enterprise and makes first contact with the Vulcans, but if you know the original series well, then you know he’s just biding his time until he can sneak off to an asteroid and have a romantic relationship with an energy cloud.
