...and the very next episode of UNCLE featured Alfred Ryder as the bad guy. These folks were working pretty steady around then!

UNCLE season 4 two-part finale had Logan Ramsey in a very small bit part, but the main Trek guest star was when Solo was lost in the desert around ... Vasquez Rocks!

Sherry Jackson (Andrea the Android) looking breathtaking In a Wild Wild West episode:


I showed this pick to Hubby. He couldn't read the words at that distance. I asked him who this was. He said, "In the Star Trek episode where she was a robot, or in Wild, Wild West?" he's very good at id-ing pretty girls. Not sure whether to be or AND he knew it was Sherry Jackson.

I showed him the photo in a post above, from "Who Mourns for Adonis?" He immediately said, "Leslie Parrish? She was in that and a Wild Wild West episode as a moon maiden."


Arlene Martel is famous for her TZ line, "Room for one more."

Hubby was watching "Have Gun Will Travel" when I looked at a guest actor and said, "Apollo!" Michael Forrest. I usually suck at that stuff.

Dr. Swain was the Martian--or was it Venusian?--from the TZ episode, will the Real Martian Please Stand Up. Guess he was always covering up that extra eye. And the fact that I know that title off the top of my head...shows what a geek I am.

I saw Michael Forrest in a TZ as a biker. It's hard not to see someone as who you saw them first, though.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I can think of six Trek cast members who were recurring members of Mission: Impossible teams. In the original show, Leonard Nimoy was a regular team member for two seasons; Lee Meriwether and Barbara Anderson were both recurring members appearing in 6 and 7 episodes respectively; and Walker Edmiston, who did uncredited voiceover work in several Trek episodes, played a voice impersonator named Dave in two seventh-season episodes. And in the '88 revival, one of the regular team members was Phil Morris, who would later make several Trek appearances. And, of course, Simon Pegg has been on the team in the last two M:I movies.

Trek players who were one-time M:I team members or collaborators in the original series include Eddie Paskey (essentially playing himself, a Hollywood stand-in, although he was named "Steve" in the script), George Takei, Barry Atwater, John Crawford (as two separate one-time characters), Arthur Batanides, William Schallert, Vic Perrin, Jack Donner, Vince Howard, Barbara Luna, Frank da Vinci (Nimoy's Trek/M:I stand-in, who played much the same role in-story), Antoinette Bower, Peter Brocco, Walker Edmiston (as a separate, one-shot character in season 6), and Lawrence Montaigne. (Perrin actually gets an extra half-credit here, since he overdubbed the voice of an actor whose character assisted the team in a season 5 episode.) I don't recall who, if anyone, played guest team members in the '88 revival.

Of course those are just Trek players who were actually on the IMF team or cooperating with it. Listing all the Trek guests in M:I would take all day.

Greg Morris played Barney Collier in the original 1966 Mission: Impossible, and never appeared in Trek. His son Phil Morris played Barney's son Grant Collier in the 1988 M:I revival series. Phil Morris has made several appearances in Star Trek, both before and after his M:I gig (not just after as I mistakenly said before). He was one of the Onlies in "Miri" (the one in an army helmet), Cadet Foster in The Search for Spock (the guy who asked if there'd be a ceremony when they got home), a Klingon and a Jem'Hadar in DS9, and astronaut John Kelly in VGR: "One Small Step."

Dr. Swain from Time Tunnel is in the background wearing the general's uniform. Barney Phillips (here wearing the white coat and head mirror) was Haley the bartender from Venus, while John Hoyt (WNMHGB's Dr. Boyce) played the Martian of the episode.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Speaking of Time Tunnel and Star Trek actors, in the past week I've watched Creature from the Black Lagoon and Soylent Green, both of which feature Whit Bissell (Mr. Lurry from "The Trouble with Tribbles" and the general from TTT). The man was pretty much ubiquitous.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Lat night I was watching Anne of the Thousands Days with Richard Burton as King Hnery VIII and Geneviève Bujold as Anne Boleyn (Bujold herself was briefly cast as Captain Janeway on Voyager) when I saw a chacrater that looked very familiar.




It took me a few moments to realize that the man playing Thomas Cromwell was John Colicos who played Klingon Commander Kor on TOS!





Another one: I recently saw Grace Lee Whitney on an episode of The Rifleman.
