Do these unique names belong to Star Trek characters or actors?

Do you know Blaisdell Makee from Jojo Krako?

Legendary Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and his fellow writers had to come up with dozens of far-flung planets to fill the final frontier. And since many of these worlds were populated, all kinds of distinct characters showed up in the iconic sci-fi series.

It goes without saying that each alien had a very unique name, but what even the biggest Trekkies might not realize is that many of the actors in Star Trek also had names you don’t hear every day.

How well do you know the characters of Star Trek and the actors who played them? Try to guess if the names below belong to a fictional character or a real-life actor!

Gotta love Sid Haig, rest his soul! This quiz? Shoot, I had to challenge myself a little. Did it half asleep, blindfolded, facing away from the keyboard, sitting on one hand, & running the "Top Secret Clown Business" monologue in my head, & *still* got them all right. Sheesh!

19/20. Sorry but even the most die hard Trek fan missed the memo on Theodore Marcuse. Thanks MeTV for another challenger!

Marcuse was easy for me (as were they all, really). Shame about him; killed in a car accident just a few months after filming Catspaw. :( He was a good actor.

18 for 20. This quiz is chock full of some of my favorite character actors ever.
Barbara Luna, holy smokes, a great beauty. She should have had a better career but like Rita
Moreno she was too often relegated to "Mexican spitfire" roles. Plus women who were the
leads in TV series didn't like her on set, she stole attention just standing there, not unlike
Sherry Jackson.

17/20. The quiz wasn't series specific, and I had to guess at a number of questions, even so, a fair score even for someone that watches TOS 7 nights a week. 7 nights? Yep- it's on H and I 6 nights, and MeTV
on Sat. It'll be a big mistake to ever change the schedule..
