    No, it wasn't; the Leonard Nimoy Bilbo Baggins thing was on a different series, the name of which escapes me now.

    Twilight Zone, "Twenty Two," features Arlene Martel, (billed as Arline Sax) as a spooky morgue hallucination, and a confused stewardess on a doomed flight.

    Thanks, Henny! I watched that episode last night and just keep my eyes open for the faces and voices (Montaigne) that I know from Trek! :techman:

    Just saw an old SF movie called "The 27th Day". An alien gives five Earth people a powerful weapon. The alien was played by Arnold Moss, best know to Trek fans as Anton Karidian/Kodos.

    I had a friend who took acting lessons from Moss. My friend thought Star Trek was beneath Moss. Personally I think the scene in Karidian's cabin between Moss and Shatner is one of the great dramatic pause contests in TV history! :lol:

    The copilot would like to say that it's possible there's a Romulan spy right here on this plane.

    Extra credit TNG link: there's a Douwd at the controls.

    The Twilight Zone, "The Odyssey of Flight 33." Which aired right after the episode named "22." Coincidence? I think NOT! :lol:

    Does anyone think that Leonard Nimoy was the US version of Roger Moore by any chance? :lol:

    Any time Nimoy called Phelps "Jim" on M:I it jarred me a little. :lol:

    Also notable was that great Italian character actor Iron Eyes Cody with a non-speaking background role as a scout.

    "Love and the Visitor," one of the segments in the October 23, 1970, episode of Love, American Style, features William Windom as a man who finds himself competing with the gorilla (Janos Prohaska) that his wife (Anne Francis) brings home from Africa.

    Kind of a shame that Anne Francis was never a Trek guest. Indeed, it seems only two Forbidden Planet cast members made it into TOS, Warren Stevens and Morgan Jones. Surprisingly, though, two minor players from FP were in TNG -- George Wallace (Bosun) was Admiral Simon in "Man of the People," and William Boyett (uncredited Crewman) played two different police officers (one holographic, one historic) in "The Big Goodbye" and "Time's Arrow, Part II."

    Trek really shoulda done a Spock/McCoy body-swapping episode...
