Over the years, through the innumerous worlds, realms and six series (“Star Trek”, “Star Trek: The Animated Series”, “Star Trek: The Next Generation”, “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”, “Star Trek:Voyager” and “Star Trek: Enterprise”) and 11 feature films of Star Trek, we’ve seen many, many famous faces take on unexpected roles.
For some it was a foot in the door for a bright career path, while other memorable appearances were simply fanboys showing off their talents on their favourite show. Christopher Lloyd got down with Klingon in “Star Trek III : The Search for Spock”. Wallace Shawn was Zek the Grand Nagus of the Ferengi Alliance in “Star Trek: Deep Space 9”. 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…” Below we’ve compiled a list of memorable faces you never knew were in Star Trek.
