    Here he is being nabbed by Bob the Discount Klingon (Tige Andrews, far right).

    The very first Twilight Zone ever, in 1959, featured James Gregory as a nameless USAF General:

    "The Big Prophet" (Jan. 11, 1968) is a very interesting installment of Dragnet 1968. Liam Sullivan is the sole guest, playing a Timothy Leary stand-in who spends the entire episode debating the pros and cons of drug use with Friday and Gannon.

    And though no arrest is made in-story, you knew this was coming:

    Well done, Old Mixer! If you've ever noticed when the Hulk is raging across New York he's actually wearing little green slippers to protect his delicate feet!!! :lol:

    Well, he’s not a guest star, but that’s Shatner on the left. He plays a preacher in the 1964 flick The Outrage. He doesn’t have much to say. He spends most of the movie listening to Edward G. Robinson.

    I must confess, I grabbed that off the internet somewhere a while back, so due credit to whoever made it.

    A production necessity, of course. Every time they couldn't control the surface Lou Ferrigno was moving around on, he wore the slippers to prevent some accident resulting in his needing to go to the hospital.

    Which was frequently an issue given how much location filming the show did.

    Eight years before poor Schmidder was burned to a crisp, Ken Lynch was serving drinks on the 3rd episode of Twilight Zone.

    Maybe that was the bar on Janus VI? Maybe the original chief of the place was one of the first to die and Vanderberg took over soon after from his bar duties? Could anyone have seen Ed Appel as the new Spock as rumoured in season two? Brad Weston looked more like Ethan Peck as Speck I'd say! :vulcan:

    "Discount Klingon"? What's that?

    Probably a reference to Tige Andrews, whose appearance as Kras in "Friday's Child" was infamously underwhelming as TOS Klingon makeups went.

    I didn't notice he was that different from the other Klingons of the TOS era.
