Let's not forget that Ricardo Montalban played the suave villain in the original WONDER WOMAN tv pilot starring Cathy Lee Crosby.
Talk about a horrible adaptation! Montalban was the best thing about that pilot.

The Fugitive also featured several TOS guest stars:

William ("what's a Takei?") Shatner guest starred in the episode "Stranger in the Mirror."

"A Clean and Quiet Town" was a TOS triple threat with guest stars William Bramley (policeman who called Spock a "barbarian" in "Bread and Circuses"), Lloyd Haynes (Lt. Alden in "Where No Man Has Gone Before"), and Michael Strong (Korby in "What are Little Girls Made Of?").

Madlyn Rhue (McGivers in "Space Seed") appeared twice, in the episodes "The Sharp Edge of Chivalry" and "Somebody to Remember."

Susan Oliver (Vina) was in the 2-parter "Never Wave Goodbye."

Clint Howard (Balok) made the rounds two times, in "Set Fire to A Straw Man," and "Home is the Hunted."

Jeanne Bal (Nancy Crater) guest starred in "Tiger Left, Tiger Right"

Of course, the recently departed Malachi Throne (Commodore Mendez) was a two time guest, in the episodes "Conspiracy of Silence," and "Rat in a Corner."

That just the small list.

That's why I posted the clips that started this thread, because it was something (I think) little-known to modern audiences and kind of unexpected. I mean, Leslie Parrish as Daisy Mae?!

Between Shatner, Nimoy, Kelley and Doohan, you will have just about most major TV dramas of the early to mid 60's covered.

Werner Klemperer, yes. And it's directed by Joseph Sargent, who would later direct Shatner and Nimoy in "The Corbomite Maneuver." (And who would go on to direct Colossus: The Forbin Project and The Taking of Pelham One Two Three.)
Its very hard to watch Judgement at Nuremburg, with both Shatner and Klemperer in what is a very serious drama. Shatner's role isn't much, but Klemperer as one of the judges being tried is actually pretty scary - once you get past the Klink idea in your head.

By the way, those who have ME-TV. should note they will be playing the HOGAN'S pilot next Saturday at 6 pm EDT. Playing one of the prisoners in that pilot is Stewart "Joe Tormolen"/"Hanar" Moss. Moss must have had a small contract with Desilu, as he appears in several early episodes of HH...

Getting the role of Chekov was not the first time Walter Koenig portrayed a Russian. He had previously portrayed a Russian foreign exchange student on the high school drama MR. NOVAK, a series with strong ties to STAR TREK.

A snake bit me when I recently re-watched the series and got to "By Any Other Name", only to realize why Hanar had always seemed so familiar.

I was delighted to run into Leslie Parrish again while watching a Mannix episode yesterday:









I was crazy bout her back then. Such a beauty!

The beautiful Barbara Anderson (Lenore Karidian from "Conscience of the King") was the nurse that helped Steve Austin make the adjustment to his bionics in "The Six Million Dollar Man" pilot movie.

The oh-so-lovely Mrs. Khan as the wife of a Latin American dictator in The Man From UNCLE







In a very strange moment, her husband referred to her as "my beloved wife" in exactly the same tone and accent that Montalban would use around 15 years later!
