He looked better on a plate.
Diana Muldaur - most famous for the season long appearance as Dr. Pulaski on TNG - was a main guest star on two different TOS episodes (as two different characters, Anne Mulhall in Return to Tomorrow and Miranda Jones in Is There in Truth No Beauty).
All three characters were memorable in different ways, though I've always thought Pulaski deserved more development than she got as a major character. But Lt. Cmdr. Mulhall in particular is one of my favorite guest characters in the franchise. The chemistry she had with Kirk was incredible and I wish we lived in an alternate universe where Muldaur was allowed to join the main cast on a weekly basis as Anne Mulhall. She would've brought a different and fantastic dynamic to the bridge.
But TNG reprised the largest number of TOS characters. Spock, Sarek, Scotty, Kirk. Plus, Terry O'Quinn, Ronny Cox, Paul Sorvino, James Cromwell, Ray Walston, Matt Frewer, Saul Rubineck, David Ogden Stiers, Famke Janssen, Ashley Judd, Paul Winfield, & of course, both Kelsey Grammer & Bebe Neuwirth lol. I'd say they got their fair share of noted performers
Yeah, that's at least one.
Robert Walker all excellent
Michael J Pollard, just no
How about some love for Leland Orser.
He appeared twice on DS9. He helped the Xindi on ENT. And his turn as a bitter hologram on VOY was particularly good.
Dourif and Orser were great! So creepy, yet so tragic as well...
You might even say Orser was too good at playing a guy who kidnaps hookers
He is an admitted method actor. Call the Feds.
Unless I missed it, I don’t think anyone mentioned the brilliant Mark Lenard. Absolutely amazing as the Romulan Commander in Balance of Terror, and even better in each of his appearances as Sarek.
^^^ And don't forget his turn as the Klingon captain in ST: TMP!
You missed it, in the first reply. But you spelled out his contributions, so no problem.
God bless you for spelling his name correctly.
Been seeing "Mark Leonard" way too often lately!
I've seen so many Jordis, Rykers, Wharfs and Troys that I'm trying to ignore such monstrosities
Some of these (Worf and Troi in particular) are the result of spellchecks or speech-to-text programs.
Don't get me started on "Kahn," which I've actually seen in published articles.
And our local newspaper spelled Uhura "Uhuru" just this week.
And then there's Chekov versus "Chekhov."
That drives me nuts.
Funny, because that's the actual correct spelling. Star Trek introduced the feminine version to the language.
Marc Leonard. Better?
A friend even consistently wrote about Spok until I begged her to stop! XD
Separate names with a comma.
