and see a fantastic looking set created just for their scenes
Remember, those sets are just plywood, sheet metal, cheap carpet and paint. What we see as a finished episode, isn't what the actors see on set.
Correct, but they might still be impressed.

Anyway, this is how I think they react:

Famous guest star: It's an honor to be here. Now, I want to fight the lion!

Producer: Sorry sir. This is Star Trek and there are no lions in this episode.

Famous guest star. What? No lion? I demand a lion! I'm a star. Star, star, star AND I WANT TO FIGHT THE LION!!!!!

Producer(to writer): Quick! Add a lion to the story and let him fight it!
There's a nearly identical story of when they were filming TOS' "Shore Leave". Shatner really wanted to wrestle with the tiger and they had to talk him out of it.
