Have you ever been surprised to see a Trek actor in something else?
 
Surprised in the sense of not even knowing they were in it before you watched it, I mean.

I still remember being a pup and watching The Muppets Take Manhattan for the first ever time. And aside from the live-action Muppet Babies interlude (which I thought was *very* cool, having more or less grown up with the Muppet Babies cartoon rather than the real Muppets, only later did I realise this was done *first* of course! :D), the other thing I was gobsmacked by was seeing a pre-TNG Cheryl 'Gates' McFadden in the movie. It just blew my world apart seeing Dr Crusher interacting with the Muppets. :adore:

Yep. Gates McFadden on the Cosby Show, then when I watched the 25th anniversary of Roots, I was surprised to see a young LeVar Burton and then when they played Roots: The Gift, it had Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks, Tim Russ and of course LeVar Burton.

Better yet, check out the making of Labyrinth to see Cheryl teaching Muppets how to dance. :)

When I first saw LA Story, a Steve Martin movie, and all of a sudden there was Patrick Stewart as the "nazi" restaurant owner, it was a surprise and a plus.

Marina Sirtis as the new director of Mossad on NCIS. And MAN did they do a good job of making her look SEVERE.

And of course the Borg Queen on NCIS, as Gibb's reoccurring girlfriend.

Having only recently watched any classic Mission: Impossible, I was surprised to discover that Leonard Nimoy was a regular for a season or two right after TOS went off the air.

Why would anyone be surprised to see an actor who had been in Star Trek? Do you unconsciously assume Trek actors only do Trek and cannot appear in any other shows? I find the question to be very odd.
