I assume you're familiar with Ishmael by Barbara Hambly? It's a Star Trek novel that is pretty much an unofficial Trek/Here Comes the Brides crossover. Spock falls through time and finds himself back in frontier Seattle . . . . .

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

We've been watching some episodes of WKRP on Cincinnati lately, involving Mr. Carlson's rich mother. Her butler was played by Ian Wolfe (Mr. Atoz), with a delightful dry sarcasm and some laugh-out-loud lines.

Guests, maybe. But T.J. Hooker's second season had William Shatner, Richard Herd (Admiral Paris), and James Darren (Vic Fontaine) as regulars -- although, admittedly, at the time only one of the three had done Trek.

Then there's Gargoyles, whose main cast included Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis, and Salli Richardson (from DS9: "Second Sight") and whose recurring cast included Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Kate Mulgrew, Nichelle Nichols, etc.

I've read that!

It has some great stuff in it, although the references to Ceti Eels before they would have been known about was jarring. That's the problem, I guess, with trying to cram new information from new material into an established storyline with only superficial research.

Not a "guest" on Trek, but I just caught De Kelley in a Perry Mason the other night.

Have you ever seen a bee's knees? YUCK!

The Mannix I watched this weekend featured Robert Lansing, but I'm too lazy to take screen grabs.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

I just saw The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'s "The King of Diamonds Affair," which has four Trek guests: Ricardo Montalban, Nancy Kovack, John Winston, and George Sawaya. Interesting that Winston is in this one, since he was in both "Space Seed" and TWOK, the only non-main cast member to co-star with Montalban in both his Trek appearances.

Nancy Kovack, by the way, does The Worst English Accent I Have Ever Heard. It meanders freely between Prim English Governess and Scarlett O'Hara, with various unidentifiable stops along the way. The episode is full of dreadful English accents -- starting with a Mockney only Dick Van Dyke could love -- but Kovack can't even narrow it down to the right continent.

I think I have some caps from that one upthread somewhere. Here's one:


Nancy looks completely different when she changes her hair color.

^It should be noted, though, that Montalban's character is wearing a fake mustache in-story in that scene.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

The UNCLE episode I saw today, "The Round Table Affair," featured a romance between Valora Noland, who was Daras in "Patterns of Force," and Don Francks, who was the first actor to play Boba Fett, doing his voice in The Star Wars Holiday Special and later reprising it in the Droids animated series. (He was also Sabretooth in the '90s X-Men animated series and several video games. And apparently he's known from La Femme Nikita, but I never got into that show.)

Both Spiner and Frakes appeared in episodes of Hill Street Blues.

Though the thread is about Trek guest actors, I'll mention that The Big Bang Theory currently seems to be the place for former Trek regulars. George Takei, Leonard Nimoy (voice only), LeVar Burton, Wil Wheaton (multiple episodes) and Brent Spiner have all made guest appearances. (Wil Wheaton's house number in one episode is shown to be 1701)

I think Warehouse 13 is giving BBT a run for its money in the Trek alumni sweepstakes: Brent Spiner, Kate Mulgrew, Jeri Ryan, and Rene Aubojonois all have recurring roles, while Armin Shimmerman has guested as well.

It amuses me to no end that Pete's mom is Janeway and his ex-wife is Seven of Nine . . . .
