All good ones. I especially like Christopher Judge as a Klingon and your pics for TOS Orion girls.
Carolyn Jones is an especially inspired choice there.

and I would humbly add any of these girls from the 1960s as Orion girls, or maybe even as thralls from Gamesters of Triskelion!

Also, Martin Landauwould have made a great TOS Vulcan. I want to say I once heard he tried out for Spock, when they were doing the casting, which was a coincidence, since Nimoy replaced Landau on Mission Impossible.

I reckon John Barrowman would make a great Romulan.

Cardassians - Chris Eccleston, Tom Hiddleston, William Fincher.
I am definitely on board for a Cardassian Tom Hiddleston.
Hiddleston as a Vorta could be fun to watch, too.

G.G. Allin as a Klingon.

(Classic Klingon. He wouldn't need no stinkin' ridges. Tehnically a musician, not an actor, but still.)

Re: Actors who would have made great Star Trek aliens

SVU fans take note:

Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson) and her hubby, Peter Hermann (defense attorney Trevor Langan) as Vulcans - in particular, Sarek's parents, Skon and T'Rama

Raul Esparza (DA Rafael Barba) as a Romulan

Re: Actors who would have made great Star Trek aliens

In the 80s, my big wish was John Phillip Law as an Andorian in a feature film, based on his wonderful performance as Pygar in "Barbarella".

Scratch that, I keep getting Jodie Foster mixed with Helen Hunt. Jodie would be a better Vulcan, Helen would be a good Romulan.
