Yahoo has posted a fun feature looking at the sometimes surprising roles that celebrities have played in the various Star Trek movies and shows. They point out a few actors you probably didn't remember had been part of the Trek franchise, although for some reason the list is all women, other than Andy Dick. (Remember him as the fussy hologram in an episode of Voyager?) So you get Ashley Judd, Kim Catrall and Sarah Silverman, but none of the fellas like Jason Alexander, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Scott Thompson, et al. And they only look at the franchise from Wrath of Khan onward, so there's nothing about Frank Gorshin, Teri Garr, Ted "Lurch" Cassidy and other guest stars in the original series.
