    Wow - I didn't realise that Leslie appeared in so many of the episodes. He deserves more credit! I guess he was just a bit too vanilla to notice most of the time.

    57 episodes, according to Memory Alpha. I suspect Eddie Paskey was on set for all of them up to Is There In Truth No Beauty, but didn't always end up on camera.

    Nice tribute. Man that Leslie was everywhere, more than I remembered. Eddie Paskey gives Billy Blackburn (61 episodes) a run for his money as most seen background actor in TOS. Often they were seen together!

    Yup, as early as the second pilot, "Where No Man Has Gone Before". You can see him standing behind Kirk and Spock as they talk to Mitchell in the brig on Delta IV.

    Normally, he has a very serious or "neutral" expression. So when he rolled his eyes as Spock stated the factors for arriving at 1,771,561 tribbles in the grain bins, it was like someone else shouting, "G*d, what a smart-a$$!"

    Sincerely,

    Bill

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone! And yes, the Leslie Archives were an invaluable help in putting this thing together. :)

    You didn't include him driving the truck that ran down Edith Keeler, maybe for the better.
