TTM Tues! Star Trek Week! Beaming Up Successes From Voyager! The Next Generation! Deep Space Nine! and More!

Hey there TTM addicts!  It’s TTM Tuesday here on MTFB and I have a treat for you this week with one a special themed-edition for this week!  This week is dedicated to some of the best signers from the Star Trek franchise! Now, for years when I was doing TTM I didn’t try any Star Trek actors or actresses because I thought to myself “Well, they charge $30-40 at conventions, and they seem to always be doing them – so I bet they don’t sign TTM.” 

I was definitely wrong!

Included in this article are Star Trek alums who sign pretty well! My friend Jim has concentrated on Trek returns the past couple of months and has received a good many returns I don’t have, so I wanted to put together this article and give you a good list to send your collection into warp! (sorry, I had to.)  So without further delay – Engage!

This actor portrayed a doctor on the TV series Alice long before his holographic form on Star Trek: Voyager.  His voice is easily recognizable as the voice of a Johnny Cab in the film Total Recall and has had a great career with over 200 credits to his name. More recently you saw him on Lucifer, the various Stargate series, and also in the film Hail, Caesar!  On Voyager, he played not only the holographic doctor, but the actual human, Lewis Zimmerman. Of course we mean none other than Robert Picardo!

This next Trek star spent several seasons being both a liquid and a solid on Deep Space Nine. Before that, I enjoyed his performances on Benson and more recently Warehouse 13, Boston Legal and the CBS series Madam Secretary. My favorite shape shifter – Rene Auberjonois!

This next actor I remember seeing in early episodes of Highway to Heaven back in the 80s and also an episode Voyagers! and even The Dukes of Hazzard!  His career really took off when he joined the cast of Falcon Crest and then appeared in the highly regarded TV mini series North and South and North and South Book II.  He then won the role of a lifetime when he was chosen as the new Star Trek series first officer William T Riker in The Next Generation. In addition to acting, he is also a highly talented TV and film director – Mr. Jonathan Frakes!

I know I have mentioned the following original series cast member several times over the past year – but there is a reason!  Out of all of the original series cast members of the years, this actor has fast exceeded the others in terms of returning autographs TTM.  PLUS he regularly attends conferences!  From looking for nuclear wessels to getting an alien creature in his ear, Walter Koenig is a great actor and a great signer!

Now known for her appearances on the hit Netflix series Orange Is the new Black, she earned a place in Star Trek history as the first female captain on Star Trek: Voyager. (First captain of the featured ship that is, in this case Voyager.)  Before Trek she was a regular for many years on the TV show Ryan’s Hope and also appeared on Cheers, St. Elsewhere and Hotel – Kate Mulgrew!

It was fun for me to see both my friends Caleb and Jim get this next actor back recently.  Some may remember him as Officer Jim Corrigan in the TV show TJ Hooker, or maybe some of his other work in the original Hawaii Five-O or even Gidget.  But, one featured role on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine turned into a total of 8 episodes for this actor and singer when he became a holodeck character named Vic Fontaine – Mr. James Darren!

My friend Jim loved this actresses’s portrayal of both Admiral Nechayev in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and also the same character in The Next Generation.  She also appeared in the TV series The Practice, Dark Skies, Frasier, Home Improvement and tons of others. More recently she was a guest star on the TV series Glee and also Criminal Minds and Kickin’ It – Ms. Natalija Nogulich!

While Trek fans know him as Tuvok from Star Trek: Voyager, younger fans know him from his roles in iCarly, Lab Rats, Castle and more recently The Fosters. I think we are going to be seeing him a lot more this year as his IMDB page lists 14 different projects in production yet to be released.  Mr Tim Russ!

This actor has been appearing a lot as the voice of many characters in video games and animated titles.  You also saw hi in episodes of Boston Legal, Numb3rs, Nip/Tuck and The West Wing. Prior to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine he appeared in several episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Principal Snyder, another one of my favorite shows!  But it was his role as the Ferengi Quark that earned him a place in Star Trek lore – Mr. Armin Shimerman!

And finally this week, we end with another of the Captains!  Still amazes me when a captain signs TTM!  This actor – well, come on, you know him from NCIS: New Orleans and Quantum Leap – so you know I am talking about Star Trek: Enterprise’s Captain Archer – Scott Bakula!
