Re: Have you ever been surprised to see a Trek actor in something else

Sometimes it's a matter of going back to something that you'd originally watched before you knew the actor from Trek, and not realizing that you'd seen the actor before. Sometimes it's the reverse. I was just watching "Birthright" for the first time in years, and was surprised to discover that Christine Rose (Angela Petrelli from Heroes) had played a Klingon on TNG!

^ You'll be even more surprised to see Teri Hatcher as a transporter chief, or (this still cracks me up) Mick Fleetwood as a giant fishy thing.

You can also see Jonathan Frakes as a villain in a Lois & Clark episode.

Re: Have you ever been surprised to see a Trek actor in something else

One of the reasons I could never take John De Lancie seriously as Q, was that the first time I saw him, he was playing an extremely goofy, nerdy scientist on Days of Our Lives. That image of him just stuck in my mind for some reason. So when Q showed up, my brain went "Hey! It's Eugene!" and I'd start laughing.

Haha, yes. My mom used to watch that show when I was a kid.

I always enjoy it when I spot someone from Trek in something else, though.

Both John DeLancie and Gates McFadden were in that funny film Taking Care of Business.

McFadden had four seconds of total screen-time in The Hunt for Red October.

I can't believe no ones mentioned John DeLancie's role in Breaking Bad!

Re: Have you ever been surprised to see a Trek actor in something else

I was once surprised to see Fritz Weaver (DS9: "Tribunal") on the sidewalk in front of my apartment, but I guess that's not what we're going for here . . . .

The scary part, though, was that I had just watched "Tribunal" the next before. Really!

I'm pleased to hear he's still alive! I'll always remember him fondly from Twilight Zone and The Reanimator.

Oh, and kudos for traveling "the next before", just don't mess up the timeline. Things are getting weird as it is. ;p

Well, this was many years ago, but, yes, I'm pleased to see that he's still around. I remember him best from "The Obsolete Man" on the original Twilight Zone.

And I'm pretty sure I spotted Ed Begley Jr. (Voyager: "Future's End") on the subway once. And I definitely saw Bebe Neuwirth (TNG: "First Contact") outside a bar or restaurant in the West Village one night.

All of those made me do a double-take!
