Could be worse. Could be "Sleigh Ride."

What had he done, start a reactor override, a something override that would destroy Enterprise?

Riley shut off the engines, they went cold and could not be started without warming up the anti-matter first, which takes a half hour but they only had three minutes until they burned up in the atmosphere. Or some such.

So they forced it and somehow wound up going back three days in time.

If they ever do a ST cooking show, I hope the first episode is "The Couscous of the King."

I think it was the one where Mr Drysdale tried that elaborate scheme to keep the Clampetts from going back home to Bugtussel.

What does it mean: the engines imploded? Obviously, not what I think it means or the Enterprise wouldn't be going anywhere for a while. You think it was more like Scotty got out and pushed it down hill and then Sulu engaged the clutch?

Twilight Zone marathon coming up - be sure to watch for the James Doohan episode ("Valley of the Shadow") and the one with both Nimoy and Dean Stockwell ("The Quality of Mercy").

Tim Russ (Tuvok) has actually had at least 4 different roles across TNG, DS9, and Voyager, but he's also the "We ain't found shit!" guy in Spaceballs.

Kang also showed up in 3 episodes of I Dream of Jeannie, directed a fourth, and appeared in the feature films Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961) and Quick, Let's Get Married (1964), all of them opposite his wife at the time, Barbara Eden.

Gambit (1966) appears to take place in a Star Trek universe as it features Roger C. Carmel ("Harry Mudd"), Arnold Moss ("Kodos the Executioner"), John Abbott (head of the Organian Council) and Vic Tayback ("Krako"). Among Mr. Moss' other appearances, he steals the show as sly chief of secret police Fouché in The Black Book (1949 - a.k.a. Reign of Terror), an excellent film noir set during the French Revolution.

The engines didn't implode, but I think the antimatter in them did, and there was (according to Spock) a theoretical relationship between it and time.

Admittedly, I haven't seen this episode in a while. It's the one where Sulu wants Riley to go to the gym with him and get all hot and sweaty.

Sorry if this is a duplicate, but I'm watching Dark Matter on Netflix (I don't have cable, so it is new to me), and late in season 1 Wil Wheaton shows up (playing the same personality he did in The Guild and early Big Bang)

Angelique Pettyjohn.

One of the oldies channels has been pulling out short-lived TV series that pretty much have not seen the light of day since the mid 1960s. One of them, "Good Morning, World" was about two DJs and their fussy boss (*Billy Dewolfe).

Jan Murray was a guest in this ep, playing a character named 'Mickey Mouze.' He brought along two dancers. I thought to myself "That one looks like Angelique!" (She has a pretty recognizable profile, but she was wearing a curly blonde wig, instead of a poofy green one.

Sure enough, it was. The other dancer was Timothy Blake. Yes, that's a girl. So, one of the guest actor was a guy named 'Jan' and a girl named 'Timothy.'

*He's probably best known as "Frosty the Snowman's" Professor Hinkle, "the woist magician in the woild."

Goldie Hawn and Ronnie Schell ("Duke" on Gomer Pyle, USMC) were also in it.

I should've thought of this a month ago, for the Xmas season: Jeff Corey has a non-speaking, non-credited role as a reporter in the 1947 "Miracle on 34th Street." You can't miss him when you're looking for him; it's during the hearing for Kris Kringle in the last third of the movie.

Saw Susan Oliver in an episode of “My Three Sons” called the “Awkward Age” where Robbie hires her as a tutor because he is doing poorly in chemistry. He has feelings for her despite the age difference and eventually finds out that his father Steve is dating her. Steve has mixed feelings about that because of the age difference. In real life Fred MacMurray was 24 years older than Oliver, who was 12 years older than Don Grady.

I didn't realize how much those poor actors needed money.

I recognized T'Pau from her Czechoslovakian accent.
All this time, I believed it to be Vulcan.

I spotted Marc Alaimo (Gul Dukat) in an episode of T. J. Hooker. That makes at least five ST actors who have appeared on that show alone.

William Shatner - TOS.

Leonard Nimoy - TOS. Guest starred in one episode and directed another.

James Darren - ST-DS9.

Richard Herd - ST-VOY

Marc Alaimo - ST-DS9.

William "Trelayne" Campbell was a soldier of fortune/mercenary on Wild, Wild West. I think the episode was "Night of the Juggernaut," the one with the steam-powered tank and multiple grenade launchers.

Uh, excuse me, didn't every single episode of TWWW have a steam-powered tank with grenade launchers (except the haunted plantation house)?

Probably. I think Alfred "Dr Crater" Ryder was the evil genius bent on world domination in that episode.

Come to think of it, Cherokee Bill was the outlaw who, when asked at his hanging if he had any last words, responded, "I didn't come here to make a speech, I came here to die."
Tough guy.

A quick search revealed that no one has mentioned Michael (Alexander--"Plato's Stepchildren") Dunn as Dr. Loveless on The Wild Wild West.

Schallert also played "Frank Harper" on Wild, Wild West ("The Night of the Winged Terror"). He was one of several substitutes for Artemus Gordon when Ross Martin was gone from the show after he had a heart attack.

I though I watched all of the episodes, and I don't recall that. I did find the sci-fi western concept odd at times, so perhaps I gave up on it.
I always rooted for Dr. Loveless.
