2. Sulu, and Yeoman Janice Rand - Sulu as a Starship Captain, in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Flashback"
3. Mick Fleetwood - played a fish-loving Antedean Dignitary in Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Manhunt.”
4. Melvin Belli - Gorgan, an evil angel, in the Star Trek: Original Series episode, "And the Children Shall Lead."
5. Heather Langenkamp - alien Starfleet security officer Moto in Star Trek Into Darkness
6. Christopher Lloyd - rebel Klingon Commander Kruge in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
7. Iggy Pop - A Vorta clone names Yelgrum in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's "The Magnificent Ferengi"
8. Angelique Pettyjohn in "Gamesters of Triskelion"

The Turkmenistan flag is interesting, but the North American Vexillological Association uses it as an example of a "bad flag", too complicated
