Trek Trivia

After watching “Desperate Housewives,” I didn’t get to turn off the TV quickly enough to avoid “Boston Legal.” (Nothing against the show, but it’s past my bedtime.) I was shocked to see Rene Auberjonois on the screen alongside William Shatner. It was Star Trek: Deep Space 9’s Constable Odo sitting across from Captain Kirk! I immediately went into full geek mode (normally, I’m only cruising at about 80% geek) and pulled together three Star Trek actor trivia questions I thought I’d toss out.

]]>< ![CDATA[

1) What TV series featured two actors who have both been regulars on a Star Trek series?

2) What TV series starred a Star Trek regular and a Star Trek recurring character?

3) What is the secret connection between Star Trek and The Addams Family? (Here’s a hint: I expect John Kerry to show up on Star Trek: Enterprise any day now for this very reason.)

Update: Mark L. Gets #2 with T. J. Hooker (starring Captain Kirk and Vic Fontaine). And Babylon 5 wasn’t on my list, but it did star a recurring Trek actor (Andreas Katsulas) and featured Trek regulars as recurring characters (Walter Koenig and Majel Barrett), so it fits the theme I was going for (but forgot.) Mark L also gets bonus points for Mission: Impossible (I forgot about that), but sorry, David — no partial credit for incomplete answers. Bob gets the points for finishing the secret link.
