The episode "Shore Leave".
Who was the woman Kirk saw and decided to spend time with?
The clothes suggest "A Taste of Armageddon".

Ruth? Played by Shirley Bonne?

Are you confusing her with Mea 3, played by Barbara Babcock?

Stanley ("Cyrano Jones") Adams (again) as Tybo (the CarrotMan) in, "Lost in Space: The Great Vegetable Rebellion." [Some day, I'm a-gonna get really tanked and watch that epi. "Moisture! I need moisture!"]

Shatner was in a TVM of "Hound of the Baskervilles," and had a run-in with some quicksand.

Yes, from 1972, just three years after ST:TOS wrapped. I saw the movie on TV when I was a kid, and his death scene really stayed with me. Just saw the movie again not long ago and it was pretty cheesy.

I watched that scene again, I'm going with Shirley Booth. Unusual half and half costuming, though.

My favorite line in this movie came when one of the hard-bitten Feds is reporting to his superior officer after tracking down a suspect:

"Have you ever spent ten nights in a Turkish bath looking for a man?"

Yep, this flick was definitely years ahead of its time.

Just saw Quentin Tarantino's 1997 crime thriller Jackie Brown, and Denise Crosby (Tasha Yar in TNG) and Sid Haig (one of the Lawgivers from TOS "Return of the Archons) both appear briefly in the same scene, as an LA public defender and a judge, respectively.

Crosby was also in one or two episodes of The Walking Dead - the leader of the cannibals at Terminus, IIRC.

Surely JB came out in 1995, no? Michael Keaton even says as much when he and Jackie rendezvous in the parking ramp.

I just finished watching "Negative Reaction," the episode of Columbo starring Dick van Dyke and featuring Antoinette "Sylvia" Bower and Michael "Dr Roger
Corby" Strong.

Bonus points: Vito "Major Bonacelli" Scotti (from Hogan's Heroes) and Larry "Cpl Randolph Agarn" Storch (from F Troop).

Set in 1995, but released two years later: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_Brown

Huh. I would swear I saw it on board an airliner in 1995, going back to the US for a visit. I remember thinking "Well, I'll never forget the year I first saw this movie."

Last night I watched Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks's charming 2004 comedy/romance The Terminal, and spotted Zoe Saldana (Uhura in the ST reboot movies, here playing a Trekker who even flashes the Vulcan hand salute!), Michael Nouri (a Vulcan in one episode of ST Enterprise) and Jude Ciccolella (a Romulan commander in ST Nemesis).

Known as Alexander Siddig since the fourth season of DS9 since he discovered that viewers didn't know how to pronounce Siddig El Fadil.

Hmm, maybe that's Spock's full name.
