No mention of the first time a cast member directed an episode of Trek? (Trek movies excepted) Frakes broke the barrier, allowing many other Trek actors a chance to direct as well.
Indeed that is a very important landmark for television driven Star Trek. The first Star Trek regular cast member to direct a Star Trek "thing" I believe was Leonard Nimoy with Star Trek III, and Frakes was the first regular cast member to direct an episode for the series.... Now that I mention that, Jonathan Frakes is the only member of the Star Trek community to direct Star Trek productions for both film, television and video games.
