Re: How did guest stars react?

I like the story about Frank Langella guest starring in DS9 because one of his (kids? family?) was a big trek fan, but not taking an onscreen credit. Not sure if that's apocryphal.

Remember, those sets are just plywood, sheet metal, cheap carpet and paint. What we see as a finished episode, isn't what the actors see on set.
Correct, but they might still be impressed.

Anyway, this is how I think they react:

Famous guest star: It's an honor to be here. Now, I want to fight the lion!

Producer: Sorry sir. This is Star Trek and there are no lions in this episode.

Famous guest star. What? No lion? I demand a lion! I'm a star. Star, star, star AND I WANT TO FIGHT THE LION!!!!!

Producer(to writer): Quick! Add a lion to the story and let him fight it!
There's a nearly identical story of when they were filming TOS' "Shore Leave". Shatner really wanted to wrestle with the tiger and they had to talk him out of it.
My, oh my! I didn't know that. I stole the "Lion scenario" from a Monty Python sketch and changed it a bit.

Why in the word would anyone want to wrestle a tiger.

Manliness.

Imagine if Shatner had been able to add "tiger wrestler" to his image all these years.

Shatner was a macho kind of guy, into motorcycles, big dogs, Chevrolet Corvettes, all that kind of stuff.
