    Not quite a Trek Actor, but close enough:
    I just saw an episode of the Jack Benny Program from 1964.
    Lucille Ball was on, and I was thinking, this was just about the time she and DesiLu studios were starting on Star Trek.

    You're welcome! Very well built and photographed models!

    (And, heh, I recognized the nose of the Lost in Space "Derelict" on the space station. ;) )

    I'm sure it's been brought up in the 200+ pages, but Julie Newmar (Eleen, "Friday's Child"), not as Catwoman on the red Bat-Phone, but in an episode of Columbo!

    Night Stalker episode 3. James Gregory is yet another Trek alum as a police captain who thinks Kolchak is crazy. Bonus visit from Seinfeld's uncle Leo.

    And apparently Redjack is the show's resident mortician.

    I also caught an ep of The Untouchables Sunday, The Jamaica Ginger Story, with Michael Ansara, Byron Morrow and Alfred Ryder. Other big names featured were James Coburn and Brian Keith.

    My wife and I have been watching "The Addams Family" (for her it's the first time!)
    And we've both been really impressed by Ted Cassidy's acting. For a deadpan character, he really put a lot of (very subtle) life into Lurch. Kind of wishing they used him more than just for Ruk (what are little girls made of) and Balok's voice (Corbomite Maneuver.)

    And one thing that keeps impressing me. Rather often, they have Lurch picking people up and carrying them. Ted Cassidy picks up and carries a grown man, without any apparent strain or effort. Like he was picking up a (rather awkward) feather pillow. My God! That man was Immensely Strong! No wonder he can pick up Shatner and throw him around like a toy!

    He also did the Gorn's voice in "Arena," though that's not what you're wishing for, of course.

    Cassidy was also the narrator of Bill Bixby's The Incredible Hulk and did the Hulk's growls until his death, at which point Charles Napier took over voicing the Hulk.

    I've recently been catching some original Magnum, P.I. on one of the retro channels, and I'd somehow forgotten that Elisha Cook Jr. played Ice Pick.

    According to IMDb, Cook's final role was in the series finale of Magnum, P.I. [https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0176879/].
