Hey, don't laugh, Ro! In spite of that episode's shortcomings, I really enjoyed seeing those two again!

To be honest, did too! But, I know that I'm one of the few people that think that. Actually, my only beef is that they didn't use a post-Nemesis Riker and Troi instead!

First one that popped into mind, that wasn't already posted, was Verad as portrayed by John Glover.

Louise Fletcher (Kai Winn) AFAIK the only Trek actor to have won an Oscar by the time he or she appeared on the show.
Wasn't Whoopi Goldberg also an Oscar winner by the time she was cast as Guinan?

However, DS9 didn't get the full Frakes! He left the beard in the bathroom sink for that one.

ETA: Of course, this was the finest moment of Frakes' career.

Im going to ignore the Shimmerman's, Alaimo's, Comb's and Robinson's of this world [as we all KNOW they were fantastic] and give a mention to one I have not seen mentioned yet.

Jeff McCarthy was great as Roga Danar in the 3rd season TNG episode, "The Hunted".

Re: Best Trek guest stars?

I think Iggy Pop as Yelgrun the Vorta was a great guest appearance in "The Magnificent Ferengi".

"And I thought the Breen were annoying".

I think Yelgrun was a great character and put a really interesting spin on the Vorta. Iggy's age and jowels made the character different from the other Vorta we see, which look like teenagers or college kids. Rational, because they're all clones that don't seem to have much of a life span, but Yelgrun's attitude is much different from the other Vorta. He is still a negotiator, but more outwardly aggressive and much more quick to show irritation.

I'm not a particular fan of Iggy Pop's music, but I think he's an interesting guy, and it was cool to see him on Trek.

Also loved old Koloth, Kor and Kang in "Blood Oath" - all three performances added a lot of depth to the characters.

^ I was going to say Iggy Pop as Yelgrin too.

Alice Krige as the Borg Queen.

Re: Best Trek guest stars?

I'm rather surprised this name hasn't popped up yet:

John DeLancie

Granted, there were some episodes where Q wasn't all that great, but overall, he was great in the role.

Others I liked

Stephen Hawking
James Sloyan
Jeffery Combs
JG Hertzler (even in Enterprise and Voyager)
Alfre Woodard
Whoopi Goldberg
