od0 also gets credit for thinking outside the box. There are other recognizable actors that can be used besides the ones whose names appeared in the opening credits of TV shows -- James Cromwell, Eric Bana, Whoopi Goldberg, William Sadler (he was just in The Pacific), Ricardo Montalban, Christopher Lloyd, David Warner, Keith Carradine (Deadwood and Dexter are post-Enterprise), Frank Langella...

The problem for a lot of us is that so many of the "good" ones aren't really post-Trek using the rules cited. For example, Nimoy has nothing but Fringe post 2009.
I don't know what you're trying to say here. Nimoy acted on Fringe after Star Trek 2009, so that fits the rules exactly. Not sure what the confusion is with the rules -- any acting gig AFTER his or her final performance in an official Star Trek movie or TV show.

And od0, Connor Trinneer's one-episode guest spots on several TV shows is hardly prolific. If you think that's spotlight-worthy, then you should have no issues with Robert Picardo's numerous guest spots (Supernatural, Chuck, Stargate, Justified, Castle, etc.). Hell, he even made a MegaShark movie!

While it's true a lot of actors' careers go to die after Trek, there are plenty of success stories too. Bakula's got a show. Jeri Ryan's on her third as a regular and it looks to be a big hit. Patrick Stewart's an easy one. If you want TOS, Babylon 5 was post-Generations for Walter Koenig.
Oh, that reminds me: John Billingsley was in 2012, Nip/Tuck, NCIS, The Mentalist. Lots of options there.
