    I don't know if it's surprising, but better than 2 thirds of The Outer Limits episodes have an actor from Star Trek.

    Doesn't surprise me at all. TV actors from a given era tend to show up all over the place. Look how many shows today feature Alan Tudyk or Amy Acker or Wil Wheaton.

    Heh, yeah, we often see some familiar character actor when we're watching TV, and one of us will pipe up with "That guy!"

    Like Brian Thompson popping up on The Orville (or practically ever genre show in the last 20 years). My wife and I call him Jaw Boy, 'cause no matter what alien or demon makeup he's wearing, there's no mistaking that lantern jaw!

    Or Lucy Lawless or Matt Frewer or Armin Shimerman or . . . .

    Decades from now, the future equivalent of Me-TV will have Amy Acker popping up on a regular basis. :)

    Gurning as in face twisting or pulling some weird type of jawish faces is the best I could put! His jawline is very large to say the least!

    At least it wasn't rhyming slang. ;)

    The Season 2 opener of 12 O'Clock High ("The Loneliest Place in the World," September 13, 1965) has Robert Lansing's General Savage getting killed off during a mission in the teaser without making an on-camera appearance. A lieutenant colonel played by Paul Carr is one of the contenders for Savage's job...

    ...but the opening credits have other ideas.

    Future Discount Klingon and Mod Mentor Tige Andrews on 12 O'Clock High as a maintenance chief who's taking heat from Col. Gallagher because of the work of Nazi saboteurs ("R/X for a Sick Bird," Sept. 20, 1965):

    Do you pronounce his name Tiger? Or Tie? Or Tyguh?

    Good question. I've always read it as Tij with a long i. Though something tells me it's Teej.

    You asked this same question three years ago. The answer's the same now -- his given name was actually Tiger, so presumably it's pronounced like "Tiger" without the "er" (in IPA, taɪɡ).

    Ah, so I was closer the first time...just switch to a hard "g" sound.

    As it happens, the way Tige Andrews's name is pronounced is the same way I always assumed it was pronounced, even without putting much thought into it. I guess I just unconsciously associated it with "Tiger."

    I still have no idea how to pronounce "Galyn Görg," though. I found out a few years ago that her surname is pronounced like "George," but I don't know if her first name sounds like "Gay-lynn" or "Gallon" or "Galeen" or what.

    What the hell, Christopher. Do you keep files on us or something? That's kind of creepy.

    No, Google keeps files on everybody. When I Googled "Tige Andrews pronounced," that thread was the fifth hit.

    He knows when you are sleeping
    He knows when you're awake
    He knows when you've asked this before,
    So be good, for Google's sake...
