umm.... wha? Paul Fix may have been the biggest star to ever grace Star Trek.
Leading man, no, But star? Big time.
Absolutely. Paul Fix was a major, major motion picture character actor long before TV was even around. He started at the end of the silent movie era and moved seamlessly through talking motion pictures and then TV.
It is character actors like him and Malachi Throne that added so much life and texture to any movie or TV project.
