    I caught Barry Atwater (image of Surak) as Lt. Col. Davis in Pork Chop Hill. Also in that film are Paul Comi (Lt. Stiles) as Sgt. Kreucheberg and Biff Elliot (Schmitter) as Pvt. Boven.

    Or it could have come out like Roger's mother in the episode--Nancy Walker.

    Wow, that's actually an episode I remember, because of Ms Parrish being in it.

    ( still not complete, eg; Elisha Cook Jr (Starbase Lawyer), Shaua, Yeoman Mears and other lovely would be molls, several Red Shirts / as henchmen, window cameos like Ted Cassidy, etc. and others I missed, anyone in the know, please list them.)

    Also as of 2017 Animated: Shatner, finally officially joined the Batman 66 crossover cast as the split--personality Harvey Dent Two-Face!

    Which was absolute brilliant casting, over 50 years in the making...

    The original Twilight Zone episode "The Silence" featured at least two Organians!

    And, looking it up, I didn't realize Liam Sullivan (Parmen from Plato's Stepchildren) was one of the main characters!
    Also Felix Locher from The Deadly Years.
    Johnathan Harris also stopped by.

    My wife and I have been binge watching Smallville lately. I just realized that Martian Manhunter is played by Phil Morris (son of Greg Morris.) He started his Trek appearances as one of the Miri kids at age 8, and later many other Trek appearances. I also then made the connection that he is also Dr. Silas Stone from Doom Patrol, another show we just binged. A great actor who really gets around on so many shows we watch.

    Paul Fix in Black Friday (1940) along with Bela Lugosi as a gangster and Boris Karloff as a dedicated but greedy, mad scientist!

    Just popped on H&I, and MacGyver was on. And there was Julie Cobb, not being turned into a crushable cube!

    Louise Fletcher (from DEEP SPACE NINE) appeared in an episode of ONE STEP BEYOND. This one IS surprising!

    A Twilight Zone I don't recall seeing before! "Passersby" is a somber little Civil War elegy featuring James Gregory, Joanne Linville, and (briefly) Rex Holman. As a sideways Trekkish bonus, there was also an appearance by the ghost of Abe Lincoln. As a totally unrelated-to-Trek bonus, Jamie Farr wandered past with most of his face bandaged, but there was no mistaking that honker.

    Too bad they never cast Eartha Kitt on Trek to get the Catwoman trifecta.

    I just caught that one recently...I think it was when Decades was doing an extended New Year's weekend binge.

    Well, here's an odd one for you. Not a TV role, but a book.

    Leslie Parrish, Lt. Caroline Palamas in "Who Mourns for Adonis"
    married Richard Bach (the famous aviation author of "Jonathan Livingstone Seagull") and he wrote a couple fantasy books about their marriage, "The Bridge Across Forever: A Love Story" and "One" about Bach's conception of Soulmates.
