Saul Rubinek is Artie, the front guy for Warehouse 13. Kate Mulgrew plays Pete's Mom, and is a regent of the Warehouse. Data was in it, too, as a monk.

Well, not Data, but Spiner...

Hell, I still call the head of NCIS New Orleans Captain Quantum.

The head mining engineer from The Trouble With Tribbles played the Marshall in the Have Gun Will Travel episode, The Marshall's Boy.

Gene Roddenberry wrote for Have Gun Will Travel, but he did not write this episode. That would be too cool.

Just saw All the President's Men (1976), and didn't realize until I checked the credits that F. Murray Abraham is on-screen for maybe ten seconds as a D.C. undercover cop who responds to the Watergate break-in.

I'm watching an episode of STNG right now where Corbin Bernsen (Arnie Becker from LA Law)appears briefly as another Q. He also appeared in an episode or two of The Glades. He also plays the god Vulcan (hah!) in American Gods, which I haven't seen yet.

Jennifer Hetrick, who played Vash on STNG and DS9, played Becker's wife on a few episodes of LA Law.

IIRC, she was also Assistant Director Skinner's ex-wife on one episode of The X-Files.

Not to mention, Terry Farrell (Jadzia Dax) was a regular on that show.

I also spotted James Cromwell in an episode of STNG; he was of course Zephraim Cochrane in one of the STNG movies. He's been in loads of other stuff ("That'll do, pig").

Sealed Verdict (1948)

John Hoyt, the doctor in The Cage, plays a Nazi general convicted at Nuremberg and awaiting execution amid some (not very compelling) doubts about his guilt. His mother is played by Celia Lovsky, who actually looks older than she does in Amok Time as T'Pau nineteen years later.

Eric Bana, who played the vengeful Romulan Nero in the first reboot Star Trek movie opposite Chris Pine, plays a former CIA agent in hiding from his former boss in the pretty good action flick Hanna, which I'm now watching.

He also played a Nazi officer more than once on Hogan's Heroes.

Arlene "T'Pring" Martel was also on Hogan's Heroes multiple times, usually as a Resistance fighter ("Tiger").

Sabrina "Miramanee" Scharf was in an episode the other day as a hot Gestapo interrogator.

Phillip Pine (Col. Green) has an uncredited role in D.O.A. (1949).


And on a vaguely related note....

Kinda makes you stop and think...at least for a few microseconds, anyway.

They were both Paramount productions, so that suit is probably still hanging in the Wardrobe Department, just waiting for the next actor to come along.

What freaked me out was that I first saw "The Savage Curtain" in B&W, so I naturally assumed Col Green's uniform was green. When I finally saw it in color.... WTF?!?

I never knew we might have seen "Izzy Madelbaum, Sr" (Lloyd Bridges) on Star Trek too:

Jeff Corey ("Plasus" in "The Cloud Minders") in "The Prisoner" episode of Barney Miller. I believe it has also been noted that James Gregory ("Dr Adams" in "Dagger of the Mind") was a regular ("Inspector Frank Luger") on BM.

Voyager crewman Lon Suder (Brad Dourif) plays psychos in numerous other places, including Babylon Five and The Lord of the Rings / The Two Towers.

I've always speculated that he's probably the nicest, sanest guy in the world in real life.

Then again, playing crazies seems to run in the family (see daughter Fiona, in Dirk Gently's Wholistic Detective Agency), so I dunno .

Mark Lenard ("Sarek") and Arthur Batanides ("Lt D'Amato, Geologist") in the M:I episode "The Rebel." Oddly enough, Arthur went uncredited in this one. I had to check his profile to make sure it was him.

I caught an episode of The Six Million Dollar Man the other night and was pretty sure I saw John de Lancie in a very small role. His name wasn't in the credits, and he wasn't even listed as "uncredited" on IMDb, but the Bionic Wiki confirms it was him.

I didn't want to count her though, because she was a co-lead for four seasons and not just in a cameo.

What episode was this? Couldn't have been Gwyneth, because her mother, Blythe Danner, was pregnant with her when she guest starred in the 1971 episode "Etude in Black."

As an aside, JoAnne Linville, "The Romulan Commander," was the whiney, alcoholic wife of murderer Jackie Cooper in "Candidate for Crime." Katey Segal, "Peg Bundy,"
was Cooper's secretary at his campaign headquarters. That episode (1973) was directed by her father, Boris Segal.

As another aside, Gwyneth's cousin Hillary Danner was in the 2001 episode "Murder with Too Many Notes." I realize it's a matter of personal taste, but she's one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/i...EvAMyHclvDCkEN

Very young indeed, but on the plus side, not quite old enough that they had to worry about the child labor laws!

Barbara Babcock ( "Mea 3" and "Philana") as "Mama Bear" in "Happy Birthday, Dear Hogan" on HH.

Looking over her filmography, I see she also voiced Trelane's mother and the Tholian Commander on TOS, in addition to having other guest roles on HH.

Not only Barbara was a cutie but she represent her characters so differently that it's amazing how she can change her looks.
