    I think everyone is aware of TOS stars/guest stars on The Twilight Zone, but a few ended up on Serling's final series, Night Gallery:

    William (Matt Decker) Windom: "They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar" & "Little Girl Lost"

    Glenn (Cochrane) Corbett: "Brenda"

    Lou (Lokai) Antonio: "Death on a Barge," which was directed by Nimoy.

    Leonard (some Vulcan, maybe Stonn...T'Pol?) Nimoy: "She'll Be Company for You" co-starring Kathryn (Gem / "The Empath") Hays.

    Jeff (Plasus) Corey: "The Dead Man"

    Barbara (Lenore) Anderson: "Fright Night"

    Susan (Vina) Oliver: "The Tune in Dan's Cafe"

    Gary (Gary Mitchell) Lockwood: "The Ring with the Red Velvet Ropes"

    *Charles (Landru / Jaris) Macaulay: "The Funeral"

    *Barry (Surak) Atwater: "The Doll of Death"

    Louise (Rayna) Sorel: "Pickman's Model" & "The Dead Man"

    I'm sure there's more TOS guest stars on NG, but I cannot recall any at the moment.




    *vampire trivia:

    Macaulay portrayed a very undead "Count" in the Night Gallery episode, and Dracula in Blacula, which starred William (Daystrom) Marshall.

    Atwater's best known role was a vampire--Janos Skorzeny in The Night Stalker TV movie.

    True story: My youngest brother is currently introducing my nieces to TOS. When they watched "Wolf in the Fold," they immediately recognized Redjac as the voice of Piglet in the Winnie-the-Pooh cartoons! I'm told much hilarity ensued . . . .

    At first I thought the top photo must be from THE BARBARY COAST, and the bottom one must be Meredith Baxter (BRIDGET LOVES BERNIE, FAMILY TIES).

    But no, you were right.

    Yup, that is Barbara Anderson with Shatner in Mission: Impossible's 1972 episode "Cocaine." Anderson was in seven early 7th-season episodes as recurring IMF team member Mimi, filling in for Lynda Day George, who was on maternity leave.

    But are any of these surprising, really? Actors got to work somewhere!

    Let's not forget that Ricardo Montalban played the suave villain in the original WONDER WOMAN tv pilot starring Cathy Lee Crosby.

    Talk about a horrible adaptation! Montalban was the best thing about that pilot.

    The Fugitive also featured several TOS guest stars:

    William ("what's a Takei?") Shatner guest starred in the episode "Stranger in the Mirror."

    "A Clean and Quiet Town" was a TOS triple threat with guest stars William Bramley (policeman who called Spock a "barbarian" in "Bread and Circuses"), Lloyd Haynes (Lt. Alden in "Where No Man Has Gone Before"), and Michael Strong (Korby in "What are Little Girls Made Of?").

    Madlyn Rhue (McGivers in "Space Seed") appeared twice, in the episodes "The Sharp Edge of Chivalry" and "Somebody to Remember."

    Susan Oliver (Vina) was in the 2-parter "Never Wave Goodbye."

    Clint Howard (Balok) made the rounds two times, in "Set Fire to A Straw Man," and "Home is the Hunted."

    Jeanne Bal (Nancy Crater) guest starred in "Tiger Left, Tiger Right"

    Of course, the recently departed Malachi Throne (Commodore Mendez) was a two time guest, in the episodes "Conspiracy of Silence," and "Rat in a Corner."

    That just the small list.

    That's why I posted the clips that started this thread, because it was something (I think) little-known to modern audiences and kind of unexpected. I mean, Leslie Parrish as Daisy Mae?! :)

    Don't forget that James Doohan and DeForest Kelley also appeared on THE FUGITIVE.

    Between Shatner, Nimoy, Kelley and Doohan, you will have just about most major TV dramas of the early to mid 60's covered.

    Its very hard to watch Judgement at Nuremburg, with both Shatner and Klemperer in what is a very serious drama. Shatner's role isn't much, but Klemperer as one of the judges being tried is actually pretty scary - once you get past the Klink idea in your head.

    By the way, those who have ME-TV. should note they will be playing the HOGAN'S pilot next Saturday at 6 pm EDT. Playing one of the prisoners in that pilot is Stewart "Joe Tormolen"/"Hanar" Moss. Moss must have had a small contract with Desilu, as he appears in several early episodes of HH...

    Getting the role of Chekov was not the first time Walter Koenig portrayed a Russian. He had previously portrayed a Russian foreign exchange student on the high school drama MR. NOVAK, a series with strong ties to STAR TREK.

    A snake bit me when I recently re-watched the series and got to "By Any Other Name", only to realize why Hanar had always seemed so familiar.
