    Oh, it must be "The Guardians," episode 3 of season 2. Yeah, that's the second of four appearances by Carr's Lt. Devlin, and his largest role in the season. He was one of three actors who were used interchangeably in the "supporting officer with dialogue" role, the other two being Alex Hyde-White and Dennis Haysbert. They appeared four times each, with one or two overlaps, since there were only 11 episodes in the season. Haysbert's biggest turn is in "The Hand of the Goral" 3 episodes from the end, and I don't recall Hyde-White ever getting a standout part (even though his father Wilfrid was a regular that season).

    ^ That's the one. Not Trek-related, but also worth mentioning...Buck has the same mother as...

    Oh, you mean the same actress (Rosemary DeCamp) played their mothers. For a moment I thought you meant Gil Gerard was Marlo Thomas's brother.

    Speaking of mothers, in the season 1 episode "Cruise Ship to the Stars," one of the villains is played by Trisha Noble, who would later appear in Revenge of the Sith as Padme's mother. So Buck Rogers got beat up by Luke Skywalker's grandma.

    That's why she looked familiar! From That Girl, of course. Which was a very good sitcom, btw.

    She also played Shirley's mother on The Partridge Family. :bolian:

    I remember it. The show was on five days a week in syndication, and that episode was a chance to hear Doohan's unaccented voice. But there were 254 episodes, so it came around once a year. And that was before they stopped showing the b&w ones altogether.

    Today, I saw the guy who played Dr. Whalen in The Big Goodbye (TNG), in a TV series. I was at the store though and it was the TV sets that were on the wall of TVs, so I don't know what series it was.

    The subject is guest actors of TOS, Disco, not TNG! Sorry about that! ;)

    My mistake! Maybe there should be one about the other series (including TNG) as well?
