Who is in more episodes of Star Trek?

Which of these guest stars, aliens and Enterprise crew members show up more often in the final frontier?

It’s hard to name a science fiction series more iconic and continually entertaining than Star Trek. Because of its franchise status and ever-expanding universe, it’s easy to forget its humble beginnings as just another Sixties space show.

Part of what makes Star Trek able to stand the test of time is the memorable cast. The main Enterprise crew are great, of course, but there are also many side characters who steal the show and guest stars who give it everything they’ve got.

Here are 12 pairs of actors from Star Trek — some everyone knows and others only true Trekkies remember. Can you guess who is in more episodes?

There haven't been any ST:TOS "stories" in 2022 yet (only quizzes). Which we should be grateful enough for, I get it. But in case the MeTV Staff Writers don't think there are any more topics to write about, I suggest differently. And here's a link (with full credit to the source) with an interesting (and surprising) story to share!

https://www.inverse.com/culture/majel-barrett-roddenberry-first-lady-of-star-trek-rod by: Rob Roddenberry, featured in INVERSE, about his Mom. Appropriate for Mother’s Day in May!

So what are the take-aways. It's too genuine to spoil here, you'll have to read it yourself.

I'm archiving it here, because ST fans always have a way of coming across the stories they enjoy. (4-28-22).

All I can say is thank god for DVD's. More and more local stations are cutting out scenes you knew were there to make room for more commercials. MeTV and H&I are guilty of this not only with Trek but all the old Tv series.

That drives me crazy, too. It's almost at the point where I can't watch TV anymore because of all the commercials. At least if I record something I can fast-forward through them. I don't watch anything contemporary, but I wonder if the shows nowadays are even shorter than they were about 10 or 20 years ago?

I know my local news is. They show maybe one news story and then to 7 or 8 commercials in a row then back to a 30 second story before back to another 5 or 6 commercials.

12/12. Not really into Sci-Fi, but I always liked the original Star Trek. I think I had a ST coloring book back in the day.

8 out of 12???!?!? WHAT?!?! Dang!! I watch the show every chance I get!! oh well,, some caracters were wearing red shirts, so I figured they were only in one episode each since they would be killed off in the begining of the episode.

I love Bruce Hyde, Singing TAKE ME HOME KATHLEEN over the ships intercom as the ship is losing its orbit, and Spock is Trying to shut the intercom off. I guess Spock had a Strong feeling about The LTS. Singing talents!!

Although some of my answers were guesses, I definitely prefer the original Star Trek. No guessing there. :)

Me too, the original is definitely better! I like the way Dr McCoy and Mr Spock have a love hate friendship, it’s amusing to see them banter. 😊

Majel Barrett or (Majel RODDENBARY) was in more episodes of TREK than anyone else. She was the COMPUTER VOICE IN TNG AND Voyager. She also played LOXANNA TROI (DEANNAS MOTHER) on TNG and on DEEP SPACE 9 very talented!

I believe Majel Barrett was also the computer voice on the original Star Trek. Her voice was intentionally distorted to sound more "mechanical".
