Sorry--my bad in not limiting the question. I meant real actors' real heights, which excludes TAS and special effects.

I'm thinking it would have to be Carel Struycken, Tiny Ron, and "shorty-pants" Ted Cassidy?

Re: Deep Trek Knowledge

I think Mick Fleetwood as "the fish dude" would be one of the three.

Wow--I am impressed. I was actually thinking of William Marshall ("The Ultimate Computer") for number 3 (he's a tiny bit taller than Mick Fleetwood). Totally forgot Tiny Ron.

Re: Deep Trek Knowledge

Marshall and Fleetwood tie at 6'5"...does that leave room for de Lancie at 6'3"

Thread derail: anybody remember de Lancie in "West Wing?"...he was excellent...

Sorry, got carried away...oops...'nother thread derail...

To JirinPanthosa's question:
Paris as Locarno in "The First Duty?"

How many Dilithium crystal chambers are there on the Enterprise-D. (Careful!)
Nope. Someone else guessed Ethan Phillips in The Price, which is very close but also incorrect. Unless he played some background Ferengi in that ep I'm not aware of.

Nobody has answered my other question yet, how many different individuals did Jeffrey Combs play in DS9.

Aren't you all forgetting Kevin Peter Hall, who was in "The Price" as one of the bidders?

Oh, good call! He's seven foot two, so from memory he has 'em all beat. (Pushes Ted out of the top three.)

^No, QPid was Geordi and he was playing a mandolin.

And as for the Combs question; depends on how you count individuals. I'll go with 10 (or 11. It's hard to know which ones to count and which ones not to.)
I think it's 6.

Weyouns 4-8
Brunt

I think I might be supposed to ask a question, but I am confused. But, what the heck:

Name all widowers in Star Trek.

Re: Deep Trek Knowledge

Plus Tiron, the cop from Far Beyond the Stars, mirror Brunt, and a guy in the finale holosuite who could be a hologram or a guest, it's hard to say. He also played a Prophet once.

And Weyoun 9, last of the series. Mustn't forget him.

Beverly Crusher, Sarek's wife in TNG, Sarek in NuTrek, Worf prior to Jadzia, Sisko prior to Casiddy, Jadzia's previous lover, and Casiddy after DS9's finally are all I can name.

Name the Qs that have names other than Q.

James T. Kirk may qualify here as well, due to Miramanee (sp?) in "The Paradise Syndrome".

Re: Deep Trek Knowledge

Tosk is correct, must have missed your earlier answer.

Ethan Phillips plays a Ferengi in Menage a Troi, not The Price.

Don't forget the andorian Shran.

How many different costumes did Shatner wear in TMP?
