Barry Morse. Not sure what role but Anon 7 comes to mind. Or maybe the Gorshin role in "Last Battlefield", chasing his fugitive across the universe for centuries wouldn't have been much of a stretch. (And have David Jansen play the other part.)

Largely because he's incapable of giving a bad performance, Gary Oldman.

Maybe Jack Palance on TNG? He was doing TV-movies in the seventies, but maybe he was back doing feature films by the time TNG came around.

Palance would have made a great Klingon.

Jeremy Brett playing a certain detective in a holodeck program that Data would become fascinated with and have conversations about logic and deductions with.

Re: Actors you're surprised never appeared in Star Trek

I would have like to have seen Henry Gibson get a role in TOS. A quirky character who I believe could have carried off more than comedy in those days, I certainly liked his voice.

Oh my, how good would that have been? I'm not surprised he wasn't in it, but it would have been awesome if he had been.

I agree with Diana Rigg, but what about her old mucker Patrick Macnee? He was in Battlestar Galactica, so why not Trek?

You know, as I kid, I think I thought he did portray the pacifist leader in "Mirror, Mirror."

Is it just me, or is there a certain resemblance?

Hmm, a little resemblance in the face, but not the voice.

To be honest, I think I also got Liberace and Trelane confused . . . .

More than just a little resemblance, I'd say. Could they have been separated at birth?
