Hugh Laurie had a test run as Captain before Shatner, but obviously it didn't work out. Rumor has it his biting sarcastic line delivery was just too over the top.

They also gave Russell Johnson (The Professor from "Gilligan's Island") a shot in a preliminary run through of "The Corbomite Maneuver", but they felt he looked too much like Mr. Bailey.

Burt Lancaster gave it a shot, but he couldn't stand the material of the uniforms so he bailed...

I have to say, this is hilarious! Awesome work with photoshop - it looks freakishly plausible! Thanks!
