    If not, I just discovered that Jennifer Lien appears on Adam Sandler's first comedy album.

    There's a "Trek guest stars in surprising roles" in the TOS forum, but I don't recall similar threads in the other series forums.

    I got season 1 of Adventures of Superman a few weeks ago, and Jeff Corey (The Cloud Minders), Anthony Caruso (A Piece of the Action), and Russell Johnson (from Gilligan's Island) all show up. Vic Perrin is in a later Superman episode but I don't have it.

    Oh, and John Harmon (the bum in City on the Edge of Forever and later Tepo in APotA) is in the Russell Johnson episode I believe.

    It always blew my mind when I realized just how many Trek actors beyond the obvious two were in the animated series Gargoyles

    ^Same here when I found out.

    After watching 300 again, I didn't know Lena Headey (Cersei from Game of Thrones) and Michael Fassbender (Magneto in First Class) was in it. I guess it was one of those 'I didn't recognize them before they were famous to me' situations. Also, Seth Rogen in Ancorman.

    Rene Auberjonois is the Chef in Disney's "The Little Mermaid." I still laugh about that one.

    GARGOYLES! :D

    And then we have Jeffrey Combs voicing Ratchet on Transformers: Prime. Sometimes Weyoun goes up into the Ratchet tone of voice and I giggle every time. Some of Ratchet's funniest lines are over here on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10TUh0wJkxw

    There's a thread somewhat like that (link) in the Original Series Forum, with many fun screengrabs.

    I love Lois & Clark: The New adventures of Superman and it has quite a few Trek-related cameo's:

    Robert Beltran appears as the baddie in a season 1 episode.

    Densie Crosby appears in multiple episodes as Dr. Gretchen Kelley.

    Jonathan Frakes has a bizarre episode close to the end of the series as a rich 'collector' who is very eccentric.

    Denise Crosby also played a serial killer on DEXTER.

    L&C episodes featuring Trek stars:

    Frakes: 'Dont Tug on Supermans Cape'

    Crosby: 'The Phoenix', 'A bolt From the Blue' & 'Madame Ex'

    Beltran: 'Fly Hard'


    Hope that helps :)

    I was amused to spot Majel Barrett as a robot madam in Westworld.

    I forgot Rene Auberjonois (Odo) was in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. I saw it the other day and it caught me off guard. I thought I switched the channel to DS9 for a second. Since there is no "I forgot he was in that" thread, I'll slip this in here.

    Auberjonois did a lot of animation voice work in the '80s, including Desaad on The Super Powers Team, a role he later reprised on Justice League Unlimited. He also played General Zod in the 1988 Ruby-Spears Superman animated series.
