    There were several at or over 100 up until 2017. I will most remember Norman Lloyd for his role in St. Elsewhere.

    Memory Alpha keeps track of anyone with a connection to Star Trek. Since I don't know producers, directors, carpenters, stuntmen, electricians, writers, etc..., I prefer to keep track of the actors, whom I know something about. Also, Memory Alpha is not always current with updates and they rely on others to upload that information. I do my research online thru dozens of different sources. There are hundreds of actors that have left acting and gone on to new pursuits and Memory Alpha rarely, if ever, keeps tabs on these people. I do not submit to Memory Alpha due to their requirements for submissions, which are tough.

    Where's Marc Lawrence? I recently came across the factoid that he's said to have been the earliest-born actor (1910) to have appeared on either TNG ("The Vengeance Factor") or DS9 ("Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang"). Often cast as gangsters (including in his DS9 appearance), he's most recognizable to me for his roles in Diamonds Are Forever and The Man with the Golden Gun. Passed in 2005.

    News about a death of an actor from the series sometimes makes me watch an episode bit differently because when watching, I know that actor is dead...
    Maybe there should be own section on this forum for information like this.
