Remembering James Doohan today.


No, Scotty was not actually Scottish. Though Doohan did come up with the character's roots. At a 1989 Trekkies convention, Doohan told the tale of his audition, in which he performed "seven or eight different accents" while reading a page of the script. The actor was quite gifted at accents. Roddenberry asked him which accent he preferred. "Well, if he's going to be an engineer, he really should be Scottish, because Scotsmen to my knowledge are very famous engineers," the actor replied.


The Vancouver native was a lieutenant in the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. His first taste of combat came on D-Day on Juno Beach. Doohan took out two snipers and took six bullets — four in the leg, one in the chest and one through his middle finger. In a story out of a Spielberg movie, the round to his upper body was stopped by a cigarette case given to him by his brother.



In another massively significant contribution to the Trek universe, Doohan vocalized the languages of Klingon and Vulcan for Star Trek: The Motion Picture. He came up with the basic sounds and some words. Later, linguist Marc Okrand would build an entire Klingon language around Doohan's growls and guttural intonations.

100 percent agree. All the elements of DS9 set the stage for a powerful drama. I show this to non trek fans and it has great response. Now imagine being with the series from day 1, and suddenly this episode premiers. Man that was something.

I find it kinda of strange that they hired actress Susan Gibney (best known on TNG as Dr. Leah Brahms) to be cast as another character (Commander Benteen) on DS9. Yes other actors have played different characters (like Charles Napier as I mentioned earlier, or Tim Russ who played 3 roles before joining Voyager) but she plays another human.

31 Actors And Celebrities You Didn’t Know Appeared In ‘Star Trek’

.

It is easy to forget that the Star Trek franchise has been cranking out films and shows for a long time. There have been six series — Star Trek: TOS, Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise — with a new one on the way and 12 feature films, with one on the way. Due to the large ensemble cast and multiple plot lines per episode, this means that at one time or another an absurd number of actors have appeared in minor roles.

.

Check out 31 of our favorite Star Trek cameos and let us know in the comments if we missed anyone. Also look for our look at the franchise’s best guest actresses as well.

Wallace Shawn, best known for playing Vizzini in A Princess Bride, was Zek the Grand Nagus of the Ferengi Alliance in Star Trek: Deep Space 9.

,

James Worthy, the three-time NBA Champion, played Koral, a Klingon mercenary and smuggler, in Star Trek: The Next Generation in the episode “Gambit: Part II”.

.

Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac fame played a duplicitous, fish-loving Antedean Dignitary in Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Manhunt.”

.

Stephen Hawking plays himself in a game of poker with Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein and Data in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “All Good Things…”. When he’s not making cameo appearances on The Big Bang Theory, Hawking currently works as director of research at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge in England.

.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson played a Pendari champion (a kind of gladiator) in the Star Trek: Voyager episode “Tsunkatse.”

.

Punk rocker Iggy Pop appeared in an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Bryan Singer, director of X-Men and X2, appeared as a tactical officer in Star Trek: Nemesis.

Mr. Robot star Christian Slater played a night-duty officer in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

Kelsey Grammer of Cheers and Frasier played Captain Morgan Bateson, a captain of the Enterprise whose ship was stuck in a time loop, in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “Cause and Effect.”

Jonathan Banks, more famously known as Mike on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, played Golin Shel-la, who led the Ennis in battle on an episode of Deep Space Nine.

PARAMOUNT

Candyman star Tony Todd (who has an unbelievable 192 credits) played Worf’s brother in four episodes of Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, he also popped up in other episodes of DS9 and Voyager as different characters and has a role in the Trek fan film, Axanar. According to rumors, Todd may have a role in the next Star Trek series as well.

35 Actresses You Forgot Appeared In ‘Star Trek’

StarTrek Actresses

CBS/PARAMOUNT/UPROXX

.

For the past 50 years, the Star Trek franchise has captured audiences imaginations on both the big and small screen, with six TV series and a dozen feature films, as well as some upcoming projects in the pipeline. During that half-century, Star Trek has managed to accrue quite the ensemble of guest stars, playing everyone from alien races from far-off worlds to people from Earth’s past and present. We’ve previously looked at some of the great actors ... popped up, so here’s a rundown of 35 actresses that are forever part of Star Trek history.

Michelle Forbes

Having had recurring roles in several TV staples like True Blood and Homicide: Life on the Street, Forbes is also known for playing Ensign Ro Loren in Star Trek: The Next Generation, a part she got after impressing producers with a one-off performance as the character Dara earlier in the show’s run.

Ashley Judd

The now-famous Judd got her start in front of the camera as Ensign Robin Lefler in two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation’s fifth season. While she’s since made it to Hollywood’s A-List as an actress, she comes from a famous family, with both her mother and step-sister singing vocals in the country supergroup The Judds.

Julie Warner

Star Trek TNG Julie Warner Lavar Burton

PARAMOUNT/CBS

Warner had acted in a handful of TV roles prior to Star Trek: The Next Generation, where she played Cristy Henshaw, a civilian resident of the Enterprise D and an on-again, off-again girlfriend to Lt. Geordi La Forge (Lavar Burton).

Olivia d’Abo

Star Trek Olivia Dabo

PARAMOUNT/CBS

The cool older sister from The Wonder Years, Olivia D’Abo, did a one-episode spot as Amanda Rogers in Star Trek: The Next Generation, who started aboard the Enterprise-D as the intern to Dr. Beverly Crusher (Gates McFadden), before it was revealed that she was a descendant of Q. Which meant she had to come to terms with that whole super-powerful, four-dimensional being thing.

Most of these people I knew starred in Star Trek. Most of these people were already famous when they appeared in Star Trek. UPN made a big deal in their promo's when the Roc was going to be on Voyager. I like it when they are relatively unknown and become famous later like Kirsten Dunst

Remembering Dr. Stephen Hawking, 1942-2018

StarTrek.com Staff

March 14, 2018

http://www.startrek.com/" href="http://www.startrek.com/">StarTrek.com is saddened to report the passing of Dr. Stephen Hawking, one of the world’s greatest scientific minds and, yes, a Star Trek guest star who appeared as himself in the “Descent, Part 1” episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. According to his family, he died peacefully this morning at his home in Cambridge at the age of 76.

A ground-breaking physicist and champion of the rights and potential of those with disabilities everywhere, Dr. Hawking was stricken in his early 20s by a progressive motor neurone disease that is related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease. He nonetheless completed his research and degree work in theoretical physics and cosmology, then shot to fame with his groundbreaking 1988 bestseller of lay-readable cosmology and quantum science, A Brief History of Time, and several follow-ups.

A longtime Trek fan, Dr. Hawking planted the idea for his scene after visiting Paramount to shoot a promotional film for his book, which went before the camera on the Enterprise-D’s engineering and warp core set. While on a tour of the other TNG sets, he asked to be taken from his wheelchair — a rare request — in order to sit in the captain’s chair and, as relayed through host Leonard Nimoy, wondered if there was any way he could appear on the show. The search was on for a “profound” scene for him when executive producer Michael Piller suggested the innocent premise of a poker game.

And so it came to pass that Data (Brent Spiner) played poker with Dr. Hawking, Albert Einstein and Sir Isaac Newton. Beyond his on-screen appearance, TNG fans could hear references to a shuttlecraft called the Hawking on more than one occasion.

And, in the alternate future that played out in the series finale “All Good Things...,” it was revealed that Data holds the Lucasian Chair of mathematics at Cambridge University. Dr. Hawking held from 1979 to 2009. Sir Isaac Newton, Hawking and Data's holographic poker oponent, held the position from 1669 to 1702. Dr. Hawking later visited the set of Deep Space Nine, during production on “The House of Quark.”

The Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge for 30 years, Dr. Hawking was born in 1942 at Oxford to escape the "blitz" in wartime London, then moved back and grew up there, enjoying horseback riding and coxing a rowing team until his ALS began rapid onset in college. Early diagnoses predicted only 2 or 3 years to live. He later became completely paralyzed, requiring the trademark voice synthesizer that allowed him to speak. The technology evolved over the years, but he retained the original, familiar voice.

At his 65th birthday in 2007, Dr. Hawking announced plans to fly weightless on a Virgin Atlantic high-altitude plane three months later, and he did so, a first for a quadriplegic. The weightless event allowed his paralyzed body to move for the first time in 40 years. He remained at Cambridge as director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology and counted the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009 among many medals and awards he collected from around the world. Dr. Hawking also appeared on The Simpsons, Futurama and on The Big Bang Theory, and was the subject of a telemovie, Hawking, in which he was portrayed by future Star Trek Into Darkness star Benedict Cumberbatch, and the award-winning feature film, The Theory of Everything.

His children, Lucy, Robert and Tim released a statement today that read, "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today. He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years… He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love.' We will miss him forever."

Well Tuvok didn't seem all that bad. Guess it's better to say Worf was anti Terran. Curious how Data is in the alternate universe, maybe more like Lore???

What episode is it? I didn't realize Kira (Nana) was pregnate so far into the series I thought it was about season 3 or 4 not like at 5. But then they met on the show so I guess they had to date, then marry before babies.
