...and? Were you aware of every bit of Trek trivia or discussion held in that decade, or covered every possible subject? You may not have heard of the Vetri story, but others were aware of it.
Relax.

All he said was he hadn't heard that story.

No reason to get personal.

"Vetri and Vetri, what is Vetri?!?" We wandered off the path here. Who is this uncredited guest from "Kirk Scores Again".... uh, I mean "Wink of an Eye"?

She's an extra. Extras generally don't get their names recorded for posterity.

We're off the subject ... again.

Someone will figure out who that young lady is. And, showing my sexist side, she really is quite attractive.

I don't think they will. Again, she was an extra. She had no lines, and was just there to fill out the group. Extras' names usually don't get recorded for posterity. That's why we still don't know who really played Isis.

And I don't think there's anything sexist about finding someone attractive. It's a natural part of human interaction. It's only sexist if you ignore the rest of their attributes.

Re: The only unknown actor from TOS...

You can't call Isis an extra, to say nothing of being "just there to fill out the group." This was not a crowd scene. She has a character name, she gets a close-up and a medium shot just of her, a smashing costume unique to her, and she plays a scene with Teri Garr. She's just a tiny step below the unfortunate cabaret dancer in "Wolf in the Fold," in that she got no lines. They'd have to pay her more if she spoke.

If only they'd listed her in the credits!

Re: The only unknown actor from TOS...

The Isis character is what's commonly known as a "non-speaking part", not an extra per se.

FWIW, the way a film crew works, the Director typically directs the actors and the 1st A.D. gives direction to the "background" (read extras).

Re: The only unknown actor from TOS...

So what about this female Scalosian, was she an extra or was hers really a non-speaking part?

Consider Compton's death scene, transcribed by http://www.chakoteya.net/StarTrek/68.htm:
Wink of an Eye wrote:
[Environmental Engineering]

(Two Scalosian males are there.)
RAEL: Stun.
(Kirk falls gently to the floor. Compton enters and attacks the man with the weapon. He is knocked down for his loyalty.)
RAEL: You were ordered to stop him. Why did you disobey?
COMPTON: I tried to stop him. You hurt him.
RAEL: He was violent. He had to be subdued.
COMPTON: He was my captain.
EKOR: Cell damage.
RAEL: (to a young woman) Another will be secured for you.
TrekCore images of those moments are at http://tos.trekcore.com/hd/thumbnail...bum=77&page=21.

This female Scalosian moves forward out of concern for having lost Compton, and she is then directly addressed by Rael. So, extra or non-speaking part?

That's a non-speaking role; she's part of the story. It's unnatural to have her be silent, but it was a money-saving thing they had to do. More speaking parts would mean less money for other aspects of the show.

She made a nodding/acknowledging expression to Rael, so maybe, beside cost savings, they thought that was sufficient. Not everyone can reply verbally, and maybe she wasn't of high enough rank to speak to Rael in their society. (even if it was only five people.)


What about Isis and Sylvia? I think they were the same animal actor, in cat form.
