Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Indeed he was a Melkot, too. Good pick up.

That's a good point about the "all guest star episode"! It's interesting in these early episodes to see that very few of the team are utilised some weeks, and, yes, Rollin/Landau is always a "guest star" at this point.

I really think Steven Hill makes a very cool team leader. I think Herb Solow wrote about having to fire Hill refusing to work weekends for religious reasons or something? A shame, I think he's great.
"Sometimes I get the feeling the only way we could achieve a STAR TREK segment on budget would be to have 60 minutes of Mr. Spock playing kazoo solo as Captain Kirk holds him in his arms while standing in a telephone booth."
