Dont' forget Bruce Hyde as Lt. Kevin Riley in "The Naked Time" and "The Conscience of the King."
Random trivia: I've heard that the producers were making plans for a season 4 (just in case they managed to pull off a miracle and get renewed again -- not likely but it was smart to plan ahead.) If that had happened, one of their proposed scripts for season 4 would have brought back William Campbell as Koloth.
More trivia: It's probably worth remembering that Riley's two appearances were essentially an accident. The character in "Conscience" was not written as Riley, but when Bruce Hyde was cast in the part, somebody remembered that he'd played "Riley" before so they changed the name in the script.

In other words, Riley was never intended to be a recurring character. It just worked out that way.
Good points all around. Here's another trivia: despite the fact Riley's two appearances were not "intended to be a recurring character. It just worked out that way", originally the producers were interested in Bruce Hyde as a regular actor on the series, like George Takei, but Bruce turned them down because he didn't think the series would last.
