Actor Jeff Conaway, who was best known among scifi fans for his role as the affable Babylon 5 security officer Zack Allan (and the star of the 1983 fantasy series Wizards and Warriors), died yesterday at the age of 60.

Like his fictional counterpart on Babylon 5, the actor had his struggles with substance abuse problems. Conaway was placed in a medically induced coma several weeks ago after pneumonia and an overdose of prescription medication put him in the hospital. His family removed his life support Friday morning.
