Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

Are we getting into props now? Should I mention the Saurian brandy decanter in that Mission: Impossible episode? And there's a statue in another M:I episode that I'd swear is the same one the TNG art department modified into Worf's statue of Kahless and Molor.

Can we NOT get into props? How about a new topic for that?

I'm watching Them! now, and once I saw a very young Leonard Nimoy in a bit part as an army private (?)....I thought had to post to this particular thread.

More Mannix - season 5, "Catspaw", I had a feeling Vic Tayback wasn't just sitting there to be background scenery.

"Catspaw"? There should be a rule; any guest actor from a Star Trek series that appears in another series with an episode title the same as an episode from the Trek series they appeared in, the episode from the other series should have the same plot.

Re: Trek guest actors in maybe surprising roles

And how does a present-day detective show like Mannix use the same plot as an outer-space SF story about illusion-casting aliens from another galaxy?

This would also apply to Roger Carmel appearing in the Batman episode "A Piece of the Action".

I think Mission: Impossible also had an episode titled 'Catspaw.'

Watched It Takes a Thief, seaon 2, "The Bill is in Committee" yesterday. Yvonne Craig as a magician's sexy assistant, and Roger Carmel as a foreign dictator. Screen caps when and if I get my virus-ridden computer back from Staples.

Wow, that's a really unflattering hairstyle for Yvonne Craig.

She did look a tad less stunning than usual. And not green.
