It is easy to forget that the Star Trek franchise has been cranking out films and shows for a long time. There have been six series — Star Trek: TOS, Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise — with a new one on the way and 12 feature films, with one on the way. 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.
