Star Trek: Hidden Frontier

Crossroads:
Penultimate episode of season 4.
This three way encounter between the Federation, the Cardassians and the Tholians was not really enticing with the end result.

Saw Michael Dorn in The Outer Limits 3.16 The Voyage Home.
Dorn had played Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation & Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as well as the TNG movies.
The Voyage Home is also the subtitle for Star Trek IV which was released in 1986 the year before TNG marking among many things Dorn’s debut as Worf in 1987.

For Dorn’s Voyage Home it came on June 30 1995, just months before his DS9 debut in the season 4 opener The Way of the Warrior.

The Outer Limits 3.19 I, Robot:
This episode came on July 23 1995 and it is a remake of the episode of the same name that of 2.9 on November 14 1964.
The original and the remake both featured Leonard Nimoy.
In the original Nimoy played the newspaper reporter Judson Ellis. In the remake he played the lawyer Thurman Cutler who was played in the original by Howard Da Silva. Da Silva died in 1986 almost a decade before the remake.
Judson Ellis incidentally is not featured in the remake . Apparently he was not needed when writing was made for the remake.
The remake was directed by Nimoy’s son Adam and I knew about this collaboration between father and son when I saw Adam’s documentary on his father For The Love of Spock released in 2016 the year after Leonard’s death in 2015.
Somewhat coincidentally Adam is also the name of the said robot.
The remake of I, Robot comes three episodes after The Voyage Home which was also the subtitle of Star Trek IV which featured and directed by Leonard Nimoy.
The Outer Limits’ The Voyage Home even featured another Star Trek luminary in Michael Dorn (TNG/DS9).

Martin Landau has passed away.
Born on June 20 1928, Landau came close to playing Spock in Star Trek.
While the character of Spock was always meant for Leonard Nimoy, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry had planned to approach Landau for the part if Nimoy had declined.
Landau had spoken of this experience with Spock in at least one avenue that of a documentary on Star Trek.
Star Trek made its debut on September 8 1966 and Landau would be seen nine days later on September 17 with the premiere of Mission: Impossible in which Landau played master of disguise Rollin Hand. Both Star Trek and Mission: Impossible were shows made for Desilu Studios.
Landau was initially a special guest star on Mission: Impossible before he upgraded to proper series regular and one of his fellow regulars was his then wife Barbara Bain.
Landau and Bain left Mission: Impossible after the third season due to a salary dispute. Landau’s spot in the series was filled by Leonard Nimoy as Star Trek had just got cancelled.
The irony here is due to how close Landau came to playing Spock.
Landau’s Rollin Hand was replaced by Nimoy’s Paris in which Paris performed the same function as Rollin in being a master of disguise.
Years after Mission: Impossible , Landau and Bain worked on another series this time with them as headliners with Space: 1999 (1975-78) which is regarded as a somewhat British Star Trek.
In Space: 1999, Landau played Commander John Koenig and Bain played Doctor Helena Russell.

Landau’s other work included North by Northwest, Cleopatra, The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Get Smart (in which got to be Maxwell Smart himself in disguise with his own face), Columbo, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Return of the Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman, Ed Wood (in which he played Bela Lugosi and also featured daughter Juliet), Spider-Man, Rounders, Edtv, The New Adventures of Pinocchio & Sleepy Hollow.

He died on July 15 2017, just 25 days after his 89th birthday.

The Outer Limits 4.18 The Light Brigade featured Wil Wheaton as a cadet on a spaceship.
Wheaton gets to be back on a spaceship from his days as Wesley Crusher on the Enterprise in TNG.
Wesley Crusher and the cadet that Wheaton plays in The Light Brigade could easily be interchangeable but there is a minor difference between the two characters.
Wesley Crusher got it on his own to become part of Starfleet while the cadet in The Light Brigade however got his father to pull strings for him to be on the spaceship.

Star Trek Continues

What Ships Are For:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VEZH8bqytA

Episode 9.
Guest stars John de Lancie and Anne Lockhart.
De Lancie is of course already familiar to Star Trek fans as Q but here he plays a different character.
Anne Lockhart is an alum of the original Battlestar Galactica as well as being the daughter of another sci fi legend June Lockhart of Lost In Space.
Kirk, Spock and McCoy visits a world where it is literally black and white. This rather made me think of Pleasantville in which things are black and white both literally and metaphorically.
However in this world things are not quite black and white and not just because colour will soon be given to this world.
A very good episode in showing the maintenance of past prejudice and how things will change when colour came around.
Elizabeth Maxwell was also very good as Sekara especially with that revelation about her.

The Cage is the name of the first Star Trek pilot and the second pilot is Where No Man Has Gone Before directed by James Goldstone.
The Cage is also the name of The Fugitive 2.10 and the next episode is 2.11 Cry Uncle and that too was also directed by Goldstone.
In case it needs to be said, Goldstone did not direct both The Cage episodes and therefore he narrowly escaped being in The Cage in both aforementioned series.

In a stunning revelation on the Doctor Who/Star Trek spectrum, the now outgoing Doctor Who Peter Capaldi once auditioned for Benjamin Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine which ultimately went to Avery Brooks:
