It is easy to forget that the Star Trek franchise has been cranking out films and shows for a LONG time. So far there have been 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” as well as eleven feature films. 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 twenty-five of our favorite “Star Trek” cameos and let us know in the comments if we missed anyone.

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”.
