For TNG fans, another episode had Andy Griffith witness a murder committed by Stanley (Kosinski from "Where No One Has Gone Before") Kamel.

No, no bikini in this one, as far as I recall (and I think I would).
Hm. Maybe that was It Takes a Thief. Off to IMDB!

^Well, I do know this wasn't Ireland's final UNCLE appearance. She was married to David McCallum at the time, and thus made several guest appearances, though only the first two were as the same character.

EDIT: Oops, a couple of posts snuck in before me. Spoilers! I'm only up to early season 2 so far.

Also, a great Romulan. I think he would have been cast best as Koridian/Kodos personally.

I don't know... what was great about Price was that he could be menacing, debonair, and snidely funny all at once -- like Colicos as Kor, DeLancie as Q, or Robinson as Garak. There wasn't much room for humor in Kodos.

Vincent Price was 6'4". They would have had to put Shatner on a box.

Price would have found a way! Most of his films were B's, but his dedication to his work is what made them memorable.

Michael Ansara was 6'3". Didn't pose a problem.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Dig this:

Vincent Price as:
1) Claudius Marcus
2) A Vian
3) Mr. Atoz
4) Lincoln
5) Col. Green
6) Lincoln and Col. Green (cool duality there)
7) Garth
8) Plasus
9) Flint
10) Korob

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

In one of those little cosmic coincidences, I was reading that new Trek book "These Are the Voyages" this afternoon, the chapter about "What Are Little Girls Made of?"

Then tonight we picked a random episode of "Naked City" to watch, and Michael Strong was the featured crook!
