Do Star Trek's Uniforms Change for Different Environments?

10 harsh realities of rewatching mash, 51 years later, young sheldon season 7’s new character finally explains why meemaw is so different in big bang theory.

Everyone's favorite Klingon Worf had a son in Star Trek: The Next Generation — and the character has been played by five different actors throughout the franchise (so far). Worf's son Alexander Rozhenko was a surprise: after a brief relationship in the TNG season 2 episode "The Emissary," half-human, half-Klingon K'Ehleyr became pregnant with Worf's child but never told him. Two seasons later, in the episode aptly named "Reunion," Worf and K'Ehleyr's paths crossed again, and she introduced him to his son, Alexander. Although Alexander never became a regular character, his presence was felt throughout Worf's narrative journey, and his return in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine marked a turning point in Worf's character arc.

In a tragic twist of events, K'Ehleyr perished in "Reunion," and Worf found himself responsible for a son he had only just met. Alexander had not been raised as a traditional Klingon , and although Worf himself was adopted by humans at a young age, Worf and Alexander struggled to find common ground because of K'Ehleyr's vastly different principles.

Alexander appeared in 12 episodes of Star Trek: eight episodes of TNG , followed by four appearances in DS9 . Several of these episodes focused on Worf's relationship with Alexander, such as "Cost of Living," in which Worf and Alexander go to Troi to resolve ongoing conflicts, and the delightful "Fistful of Datas" episode that sees Worf and Alexander trapped together in a Western-themed holodeck program. The following is every actor who has played Alexander in Star Trek .

Alexander was introduced in the TNG episode "Reunion." By this time, Worf son was already a toddler. Because Alexander mother, K'Ehleyr, was killed by the treacherous Klingon Duras (K'Ehleyr was investigating Duras to uncover his role in a conspiracy that had harmed Worf's social standing considerably), Worf claimed Alexander as his kin — despite having previously stated he did not wish to share his dishonor with his son. In this episode only, Alexander is played by the late Jon Steuer, who left the acting industry in the mid '90s and pursued a career in music. When the character returned, he was played by an older actor — likely to accommodate labor laws that govern how long child actors of each age can work (which includes the hours they spend in a makeup chair).

Brian Bonsall

For most of the character's run, Alexander was played by Brian Bonsall. Bonsall first appeared in the role in the TNG season 5 episode "New Ground," and continued to play the role until his final appearance in the series: season 7, episode 21, "Firstborn." Bonsall is thus the version of Alexander most Trekkers think of for Worf's offspring.

Marc Worden

After TNG concluded in 1994, Worf transitioned into Deep Space Nine , joining the cast as a regular for season 4 in 1995. Alexander didn't move with him to the station — as Worf explained, they had continued difficulties getting along, and Worf felt it would be better for everyone if Alexander lived on Earth with his grandparents. However, in the season 6 episode "Sons and Daughters," Worf is surprised to encounter Alexander on the Klingon ship the Rotarran. Although he is only approximately 9 years old, Alexander has matured into a man (Klingon's mature faster than humans do) and is trying to reclaim a Klingon identity for himself.

Alexander is played by Marc Worden in DS9 , since the character had matured into adulthood and therefore needed to be played by an adult. After "Sons and Daughters," Worden's Alexander appeared only once more, in "You Are Cordially Invited," the last canon appearance of the character in Star Trek .

James Sloyan

In the TNG episode "Firstborn," Worf and Alexander meet a mysterious Klingon named K'mtar (James Sloyan), an advisor to the House of Mogh. By the end of the episode, K'mtar reveals himself to actually be Alexander from forty years in the future; as an adult, Alexander witnessed his father being murdered, and he blamed himself because for what happened. Future Alexander then travelled back in time, vowing to turn his past self into a traditional Klingon warrior in order to prevent Worf's murder. Thus, Sloyan also played Alexander — but as an adult.

Richard Martinez

The last actor on this list only appeared as an image on Star Trek ; Richard Martinez was used for a framed picture of Worf and his son Alexander seen in Deep Space Nine season 4, episode 1, "The Way of the Warrior" and season 6, episode 16, "Change of Heart." Martinez was uncredited for the short stint, and the next time Alexander appeared in the Star Trek franchise, he would be played by the adult actor, Marc Worden.

'Star Trek: The Next Generation' Alexander Actor Tragically Dies

Jon Paul Steuer died of unconfirmed causes on New Year's Day.

alexander star trek actor

Punk rocker and former child actor Jon Paul Steuer, perhaps best known for his role as the young Klingon Alexander Rozhenko on Star Trek: The Next Generation , died of unconfirmed causes on Monday, January 1, at age 33. Steuer’s friends and P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. bandmates announced his passing on the band’s Facebook page on Wednesday, writing, “It is with heavy hearts and saddened minds that we announce the passing of our dear friend and singer Jonny Jewels, AKA Jon Paul Steuer.”

Steuer was the first young actor to portray Alexander, Lieutenant Worf and K’Ehleyr’s son, on TNG . Though he only played Alexander in a single episode of the series, Season 4’s “Reunion,” Steuer still marks the first actor to take on the role; Alexander was later portrayed by Brian Bonsall, Marc Worden, James Sloyan, and Richard Martinez. According to an interview with Jonathan Frakes (Commander William T. Riker) in a TNG Season 4 DVD special feature, Steuer was probably recast because he “was too shy, not a warrior.”

After Star Trek: The Next Generation , Freuer went on to star in the hit ABC sitcom Grace Under Fire from The Big Bang Theory creator Chuck Lorre. Freuer left the series after the first three seasons, quoting struggles with substance addiction, rehabilitation, and relapse. Steuer quit acting after Grace Under Fire , picking up a music career and later opening a vegan restaurant.

In the Facebook post announcing his death, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. wrote:

The addition of Jonny to our dysfunctional band family was one of the best choices that we have ever made, and he brought a much needed sense of fun and lightheartedness to everything we did. He was only with us for a little more than a year, but we managed to cram a lifetime of great experiences into his tenure as our singer: dozens shows at home in Portland and across several states, an amazing European tour, and our best full-length release yet.
We’ve lost our singer, but far, far more than that we’ve lost a friend. Rest in peace, Jonny…we love you.

The character went on to be played by Brian Bonsall, James Sloyan and Marc Worden.

Tributes from devoted fans of the show have since poured in for the performer who also forged a career as a musician and restaurateur.

According to the Willamette Week newspaper in Oregon, a cause of death has not yet been confirmed.

Following his death in Portland on New Year's Day, the official Star Trek Twitter account posted a tribute to the California-born star, who also appeared in American sitcom Grace Under Fire from 1993 until 1996.

Star Trek actor Jon Paul Steur has died, aged 33

alexander star trek actor

Actor Jon Paul Steur, the first actor to play Alexander Rozhenko in Star Trek: The Next Generation, has died at the age of 33.

The child star passed away on New Year’s Day, although a cause of death is yet to be confirmed, according to the Willamette Week.

After beginning his acting career at the age of three, Jon’s biggest moment came when he bagged the role of Alexander in 1990, who was the son of Klingon Worf and Ambassador K’Ehleyr.

In 1991, he continued his career with a role in comedy series Late For Dinner, before winning greater plaudits with a turn as Quentin Kelly in the television series Grace Under Fire.

Despite his successes, he gave up acting altogether at the age of 12 to pursue music, and played in a series of bands under his new alter-ego Jonny P Jewels.

Exclusive Interview with Alexander Siddig

alexander star trek actor

Alexander Siddig was a young man, new to America and going by the name Siddig el Fadil when he first stepped through the gates at Paramount Pictures to play Dr. Julian Bashir in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine . He’s older now, a respected, veteran talent in Hollywood and abroad, and calls himself Alexander Siddig, the moniker he adopted during DS9’s seven-year run. Since bidding adieu to DS9 , he’s appeared in such films and television shows as Reign of Fire, Kingdom of Heaven, Syriana, 24, Doomsday and Clash of the Titans. Right now, he’s got two films on the way, the acclaimed indie drama Cairo Time, in which he co-stars with Patricia Clarkson, and Miral, a drama directed by Julian Schnabel, with Siddig cast as the father of Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto. recently caught up with the always-engaging Siddig for an informative conversation about DS9 , his life and career.

Back when DS9 ended, were you excited about the future or concerned about what might – or might not – come next for you?

I was actually really excited. I felt like I’d been through a wonderful post-graduate course in acting and I was ready now to have a go. I was a little bit scared that maybe nothing would happen and I might be rubbish. I’m always still a bit scared. That doesn’t change. It was a long time for an actor to do one thing. Seven years. On the one hand it’s the most amazing privilege in the world to do a job where you know what’s going to happen next year. On the other hand, actors are itinerant. We go from place to place. We sell our wares in a nomadic way, not to sound too pompous. I was missing that element. I missed the gypsy side of the business and so I was really looking forward to that. And I was lucky to get some little breaks in a couple of feature films, and it went from there.

What, to your thinking worked best about Bashir as a character, and how much does that whole genetic engineering storyline still bug you?

You know where I’m going to go with that, and part of the reason I go to that is because… In fairness, I can’t complain about anything that happened to Bashir. Writers and producers work so hard and they came up with ideas, and some work and some don’t. That’s all there is to it. That’s what it boils down to. Now, with the benefit of hindsight, I think that the humanity of Bashir is the thing that I really love about that guy. I feel that he’s just a very human, human, an archetypal human being with faults and problems.

You and Nana Visitor were a couple for a while (married from 1997 to 2001) and had your son, Django, together. Who else from the old days are you still in touch with?

Nana is really the only person I’m in touch with, sadly. I see her at least twice a year. I’d love to be in touch with more people, but we’ve all gone off and done different stuff. Everyone’s gone off in different directions. I did see Armin (Shimerman) the other day at a convention, and I was so happy to see him and hear him speak and to catch up with him. I don’t do many conventions, so it was just a real pleasure to go, “Oh my God, Armin, how are you?” I wish I’d see more of Andy Robinson, who was such a good friend to me while I was in L.A. I’d love to see more of everybody.

Of course, you could see everybody again if there’s ever a DS9 reunion movie or show. How open would you be to reprising Dr. Bashir in something like that?

Star Trek is my home. That’s where I was brought up as an actor. Yeah. I think they’d be smart to do it on the small screen. If they had the chutzpah to do that, I’d definitely be excited about it.

Ruba Nadda, the writer-director of Cairo Time, wrote the role of Tareq with you in mind. How often has that happened before, and how big an honor is that for an actor?

It’s happened two or three times now, which is amazing. Bizarrely, Neil Marshall, the director of Doomsday, told me that he wrote the role of the Prime Minister, this crazy little role in this crazy little movie, for me. So that was the first time. Cairo Time is the second time and Julian Schnabel said he wrote a part for me with Rula Jabreal in Rula’s script for Miral. It’s just so jazzy. And, really, Cairo Time is just such a tailor-made part.

Cairo Time stars Patricia Clarkson as a married American woman who arrives in Cairo, only to meet and fall for your character, a longtime friend of her husband’s. What intrigued you most about these two characters and their forbidden attraction?

I think there’s a pure honesty and if anybody is willing to just listen they will see what I mean. There’s no conceit. There’s no trick. There’s nothing up our sleeves. There’s a big old town and there are basically four characters. Two of them just hang out and a slow understanding of each other occurs and, in spite of their differences, their many differences, they both go, “I recognize you. I see you.” Actually, it’s more than listening that you have to do. You have to commit to the movie. You have to do what old-fashioned audiences had to do, which is get involved. You can’t just sit back and get taken off on a trip to wherever it is without any work at all. You have to do a little work, and that’s an old-fashioned contract that used to happen when people used to see plays or when they saw older movies. They were slower-paced and you had to pay attention and invest, and that’s a really healthy thing.

Talk about creating heat and empathy with Patricia Clarkson…

That’s really easy to do. Patricia is such a divine creature. I didn’t know her. I hadn’t really seen her work. If I had, I might have had some kind of pre-conception. I knew of her, but I didn’t have any kind of relationship with her until I came to Cairo and we started work immediately, without rehearsal. I just fancied the pants off her, to use an English colloquialism. There’s so much intelligence in that face that I was forever reading stuff in her face, in her expressions, in her eyes, even when she wasn’t talking. So there was no real need to manufacture chemistry. It was there, at least from my point of view. I don’t know what she thought.

What do you play in Miral?

I play a character that’s one of the only men in the movie. It’s a movie about women. There are three main women, and it’s about what happens to them in 1948 and on as Israel develops and as two peoples struggle to hold on to, to dominate the same piece of territory without any formal invasion. It was quite a peculiar situation, the birth of this country. My character is the glue that holds these three women together in the narrative. He’s not the protagonist, the lead, on any level. He’s there to make sure everything is anchored and that these women have someone to bounce things off. He’s the best friend of one, the father of another and the uncle of the third.

10 Star Trek Actors In Seinfeld

  • There are deep ties between Star Trek and Seinfeld, with over 30 actors appearing in both iconic shows.
  • Notable actors like Phil Morris and Brian George had roles in both Seinfeld and various Star Trek series.
  • Connections between Star Trek and Seinfeld continue through current projects, showcasing the lasting impact of these beloved TV shows.

Unsurprisingly, given their prominence throughout the 1990s, there was considerable crossover of actors between the Star Trek franchise and Seinfeld . Premiering in 1989, the Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld-created sitcom left a huge cultural impact that continues to be felt to this day. The same can be said for Star Trek: The Next Generation , which premiered two years earlier in 1987 and launched three further Star Trek TV shows that kept Gene Roddenberry's vision alive throughout the 1990s. As TNG and Seinfeld were two of the most popular shows on TV, it was inevitable that jobbing actors would secure guest roles on both series .

The connection between Star Trek and Seinfeld continues today, with Jack McBrayer, who voices Badgey in Star Trek: Lower Decks , appearing as Steve Schwinn in Jerry Seinfeld's new Netflix movie Unfrosted . Overall, there are around 30 actors who have appeared in both the Star Trek franchise and Seinfeld 's nine seasons . For example, Teri Hatcher, who had an uncredited role as Lt. Robinson in Star Trek: The Next Generation season 2, episode 4, "The Outrageous Okona", also appeared as Jerry's girlfriend Sidra Holland in three episodes of Seinfeld .

Every Seinfeld Season Ranked Worst To Best

Deemed one of the greatest sitcoms ever, Seinfeld was a show about nothing for 9 seasons, but which season contained the best shows about nothing?

DS9's Armin Shimerman as Stan

Ds9's quark actor didn't enjoy his experience on "the caddy.".

In Seinfeld season 7, episode 12, "The Caddy", Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards) meets Stan (Armin Shimerman), a golf caddy who's convinced he can turn Kramer into a professional. Unfortunately, a car crash caused by Elaine's friend Sue Ellen Mischkie wearing a bra in public puts paid to Kramer and Stan's ambitions. It's a small role for Shimerman that shows flashes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine 's Quark , particularly when he advises Kramer to sue Sue Ellen for her family fortune.

Sadly, Armin Shimerman didn't enjoy his Seinfeld experience (via TheThings ) telling a convention audience that the cast were " non-communative, ugly, non-responsive " and " insular ". In response, Star Trek fan and Seinfeld 's George Costanza actor Jason Alexander said on his podcast, Really? No Really? , that he felt they were always a " welcoming cast ". Clearly, Armin Shimerman, himself a member of a huge ensemble cast on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine , disagrees.

Phil Morris as Jackie Chiles

Kramer's lawyer had various star trek roles between 1966 and 1999..

Phil Morris is best known as Cosmo Kramer's long-suffering attorney, Jackie Chiles in Seinfeld , but the actor had been appearing in Star Trek since childhood . Phil Morris' first appearance was one of the children in Star Trek: The Original Series , season 1, episode 11, "Miri". Years later, Morris returned to the franchise with a small role as Cadet Foster in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock . Morris' young cadet asked Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) if they might get a hero's welcome, to which Kirk memorably replied " God knows, there should be. "

Star Trek: The Original Series

Star Trek: The Original Series follows the exploits of the crew of the USS Enterprise. On a five-year mission to explore uncharted space, Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) must trust his crew - Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (Forest DeKelley), Montgomery "Scotty" Scott (James Doohan), Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), Chekov (Walter Koenig) and Sulu (George Takei) - with his life. Facing previously undiscovered life forms and civilizations and representing humanity among the stars on behalf of Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets, the Enterprise regularly comes up against impossible odds and diplomatic dilemmas.

Phil Morris also appeared alongside the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine cast as two different characters, the Klingon warrior Thopok in "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places", and Jem'Hadar soldier Remata'Klan in "Rocks and Shoals". Phil Morris' final Star Trek role was as John Kelly, the tragic 21st century astronaut whose corpse the USS Voyager discovers in "One Small Step". Morris gave his best Star Trek performance as Kelly , delivering moving monologues that were later accessed by Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan) in an attempt to piece together what happened to him.

One of the starships in Star Trek: Picard season 3's Frontier Day parade was the USS John Kelly, named after Phil Morris' Star Trek: Voyager character.

Star Trek: Voyager Cast & Character Guide

In its seven seasons, Star Trek: Voyager introduced many new faces to the Trek universe. Here is a breakdown of the show's main cast and characters.

Voyager's Richard Herd as Mr. Wilhelm

Tom paris' dad was george costanza's supervisor in seinfeld..

Richard Herd played the recurring role of Admiral Owen Paris in Star Trek: Voyager , the disappointed father of Lt. Tom Paris (Robert Duncan McNeill) and early mentor of Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) . However, the maverick Tom Paris was a breeze compared to Seinfeld 's George Costanza, whom Richard Herd's Mr. Wilhelm supervised in multiple episodes of Seinfeld . Herd made his debut in Seinfeld season 6, episode 18, "The Jimmy", in which George was accused of stealing sports equipment from the New York Yankees.

Star Trek: Voyager

The fifth entry in the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek: Voyager, is a sci-fi series that sees the crew of the USS Voyager on a long journey back to their home after finding themselves stranded at the far ends of the Milky Way Galaxy. Led by Captain Kathryn Janeway, the series follows the crew as they embark through truly uncharted areas of space, with new species, friends, foes, and mysteries to solve as they wrestle with the politics of a crew in a situation they've never faced before.

Mr. Wilhelm was already a fairly inept supervisor, but working with George between Seinfeld season 6 and 8 drove him insane. In Seinfeld season 8, episode 7, "The Checks", Wilhelm joined the Sunshine Carpet Cleaning cult, after George hired them to clean the carpets at Yankee Stadium. Mr. Wilhelm later returned for Seinfeld 's controversial finale , delivering damning prosecution evidence against George as he and the cast stood trial.

Richard Herd also played L'Kor in Star Trek: The Next Generation 's season 6 two-parter, "Birthright".

Voyager's Tom Wright as Mr. Morgan

The tuvix actor was one of george's yankees colleagues in seinfeld seasons 5 & 6..

Another of George's Yankees colleagues in Seinfeld was Mr. Morgan (Tom Wright), with whom Costanza had a series of run-ins. In his first appearance, "The Pledge Drive", Morgan is impressed by George because he eats a candy bar with a knife and fork, a decision he quickly regrets. Ultimately, George accidentally got Mr. Morgan fired with an involuntary wink in Seinfeld season 7, episode 4, "The Wink".

Tom Wright is best known to Star Trek fans as Tuvix from Star Trek: Voyager , the tragic hybrid of Neelix (Ethan Phillips) and Lt. Tuvok (Tim Russ). Much like the unfortunate Mr. Morgan, Tuvix was also unceremoniously ejected from his position aboard the USS Voyager, albeit in a manner more brutal than an involuntary wink. Tom Wright later returned to the franchise as Ghrath in Star Trek: Enterprise season 4, episode 1, "Storm Front" . Ghrath was a member of the Na'kuhl, one of the powers involved in the Temporal Wars.

Star Trek: Discovery Reveals A Voyager Enemy Played A Big Role In The Temporal Wars

Rayner reveals the links between Star Trek: Discovery's time bug and a deep-cut Star Trek: Voyager enemy, tying them to the Temporal Wars.

TNG's Michelle Forbes as Julie

Ro laren was george costanza's girlfriend in "the big salad".

Julie (Michelle Forbes) was just one of many women who were far too good for George Costanza over the course of nine seasons of Seinfeld . In "The Big Salad", George torpedoes his relationship with Julie because he feels that she took credit for buying lunch for Elaine (Julia Louis Dreyfus). It's a typically petty move from George, and Michelle Forbes' withering delivery of the line " I just handed someone a bag " is a perfectly pitched put-down.

Star Trek: The Next Generation

Star Trek: The Next Generation is the third installment in the sci-fi franchise and follows the adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew members of the USS Enterprise. Set around one hundred years after the original series, Picard and his crew travel through the galaxy in largely self-contained episodes exploring the crew dynamics and their own political discourse. The series also had several overarching plots that would develop over the course of the isolated episodes, with four films released in tandem with the series to further some of these story elements.

Julie is a minor entry in the long list of Michelle Forbes' acting roles outside Star Trek , but it's another big 1990s TV show that she can tick off her list. As well as playing Julie in Seinfeld , and Ro Laren in Star Trek: The Next Generation , Michelle Forbes also appeared in multiple episodes of Homicide: Life on the Street as Dr. Julianna Cox. With roles in three of the biggest TV shows of the 1990s, there's little wonder that Michelle Forbes is still in demand to this day .

DS9's Brian George as Babu Bhatt

Jerry ruined the life of dr. bashir's father..

Brian George is a well-known British-Israeli actor who has appeared in multiple cult classic shows like Quantum Leap and The X-Files , as well as beloved sitcoms like New Girl and The Big Bang Theory . In Seinfeld , Brian George played Babu Bhatt, who first appeared in "The Café" , in which he opened up a restaurant which quickly went under thanks to some unsolicited advice from Jerry. Babu later returned in "The Visa", when Jerry's attempts to make amends only led to Babu being deported. Babu was one of the many prosecution witnesses called in the Seinfeld finale's trial.

Brian George was one of many Star Trek actors who returned for the Seinfeld finale, including Teri Hatcher, Phil Morris, and Richard Herd.

Between his appearance in "The Visa" and his return for the Seinfeld finale, Brian George played Richard Bashir in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine , season 5, episode 16, "Doctor Bashir, I Presume". At the end of the episode, Richard agreed to serve a prison sentence for his role in genetically augmenting Dr. Julian Bashir (Alexander Siddig) as a child. Brian George later returned to the franchise as O'Zaal, the Antarian ambassador who coordinated the race that Tom Paris competes in the Star Trek: Voyager episode, "Drive" .

Julian Bashir's an augment, a doctor, and a secret agent, and his best Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes encapsulate these aspects of his character.

Star Trek: First Contact's Jack Shearer as Mr. Tuttle

Admiral hayes' interviews george for a job in "the barber".

In a classic Seinfeld set-up, George Costanza pretends to have a job at a company after the man interviewing him, Mr. Tuttle (Jack Shearer) dismisses him mid-job interview before telling him if he's been successful. Seinfeld season 5, episode 8, "The Barber" aired a few months after Jack Shearer had made his first of many Star Trek appearances . In Star Trek: Deep Space Nine season 1, episode 17, "The Forsaken", Shearer played the Bolian ambassador who joins Lwaxana Troi (Majel Barrett) on a fact-finding mission to the Gamma Quadrant.

Jack Shearer later appeared in Boston Legal , which starred his Star Trek: Deep Space Nine co-star, Rene Auberjonois, and William Shatner.

Jack Shearer later played a Romulan diplomat called Ruwon, who plotted to destroy the Bajoran wormhole and Deep Space Nine to prevent the Dominion from reaching the Alpha Quadrant. Out of make-up, Jack Shearer played two different Starfleet admirals, Strickler in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Non Sequitur", and Hayes in both Star Trek: First Contact and the Voyager episodes "Hope and Fear" and "Life Line". As "Non Sequitur" takes place in an alternate reality, it may account for Jack Shearer playing two completely different admirals .

TNG's Elizabeth Dennehy as Allison

The drake's fiance became the drakette in seinfeld season 4..

In Seinfeld season 4, episode 22, "The Handicap Spot", Star Trek: The Next Generation 's Elizabeth Dennehy played Allison, the fiancée of Jerry and Elaine's friend The Drake (Rick Overton) . It's a small role, given that Allison and The Drake's relationship ends in a break-up, forcing Jerry and Elaine to try and reclaim their engagement gift. Dennehy made a brief, uncredited performance as "The Drakette" in the finale of Seinfeld season 4, having reunited with her fiancé.

Elizabeth Dennehy's episode, "The Handicap Spot" marks the first appearance of Jerry Stiller as Frank Costanza in Seinfeld .

To Star Trek fans, Elizabeth Dennehy is best known as Lt. Commander Elizabeth Shelby from "The Best of Both Worlds". The arch-rival of Commander William T. Riker (Jonathan Frakes), Shelby became Riker's Number One when Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) was assimilated by the Borg Collective . Shelby returned in Star Trek: Picard , becoming the second of the starship Enterprise's three female captains by commanding the USS Enterprise-F during the ill-fated Frontier Day parade.

Star Trek: Picard Vs. TNG Filming Was "Night and Day," Says Admiral Shelby Actress

Admiral Shelby's Elizabeth Dennehy reflects on the very different experiences she had filming Star Trek: The Next Generation vs. Star Trek: Picard.

DS9's Melanie Smith as Rachel

Gul dukat's daughter romanced jerry seinfeld..

Melanie Smith was the third, and longest serving, actress to play Tora Ziyal in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine . From being enslaved by the Breen Confederacy to execution at the hands of Legate Damar (Casey Biggs), Ziyal had a devastating DS9 arc, with Melanie Smith playing the character in seasons 5 and 6. The tragic daughter of Gul Dukat (Marc Alaimo) was miles away from the character of Rachel Goldstein, who appeared in three episodes of Seinfeld .

With three appearances in Seinfeld , including a double episode, Rachel Goldstein was Jerry's longest running on-screen girlfriend in the series.

Rachel and Jerry start dating in the two-part episode "The Raincoats", in which they get caught making out during a screening of Schindler's List . Later, in the episode "The Hamptons", Rachel causes tension between George and his girlfriend Jane by casting doubt on the size of his manhood. Eventually, Rachel dumps Jerry in "The Opposite", but he's not that cut up about it, deciding that someone else will come along.

Seinfeld's Jason Alexander as Noum and Kurros

The george costanza actor appeared in star trek: voyager and prodigy..

Jason Alexander is best known for playing George Costanza in all nine seasons of Seinfeld . In a 2011 interview with the official Star Trek website , Jason Alexander spoke of how he was drawn to the "humor and poetry" of Star Trek 's stories. The Seinfeld star also cites William Shatner's Captain Kirk as the person who inspired him to become an actor in the first place. Knowing that he was a fan, Star Trek regularly offered Jason Alexander roles, but he turned them down because he wanted to play an alien, and not a human character.

Estelle Harris, who played George's mother in Seinfeld appeared as an unnamed Nechani woman in Star Trek: Voyager season 3, episode 7, "Sacred Ground". Heidi Swedberg, who played George's ill-fated fiancee Susan, appeared in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as Rekelen in season 2, episode 18, "Profit and Loss".

Jason Alexander finally got his wish when he was cast as Kurros in Star Trek: Voyager season 5, episode 20, "Think Tank". Kurros was part of an interspecies group of alien geniuses, who wanted to add Seven of Nine to their number. More recently, Jason Alexander has voiced the character of Lt. Noum in Star Trek: Prodigy season 1. It's unknown if Noum will return for Prodigy season 2, but it's fair to say that with two alien roles, Jason Alexander's Star Trek ambitions have been well served.

All episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy are available to stream on Netflix.

All other episodes of Star Trek are available to stream on Paramount+.

Star Trek: Prodigy

Star Trek: Prodigy is the first TV series in the Star Trek franchise marketed toward children, and one of the few animated series in the franchise. The story follows a group of young aliens who find a stolen Starfleet ship and use it to escape from the Tars Lamora prison colony where they are all held captive. Working together with the help of a holographic Captain Kathryn Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), the new crew of the USS Protostar must find their way back to the Alpha Quadrant to warn the Federation of the deadly threat that is pursuing them.

Seinfeld stars Jerry Seinfeld as a stand-up comedian whose life in New York City is made even more chaotic by his quirky group of friends who join him in wrestling with life's most perplexing yet often trivial questions. Often described as "a show about nothing," Seinfeld mines the humor in life's mundane situations like waiting in line, searching for a lost item, or the trials and tribulations of dating. Co-starring is Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Jerry's ex-girlfriend and current platonic pal, Elaine Benes; Jason Alexander as George Costanza, Jerry's neurotic hard-luck best friend; and Michael Richards as Jerry's eccentric neighbor, Kramer.

10 Star Trek Actors In Seinfeld

THEN AND NOW: The cast of 'Seinfeld' 35 years later

  • NBC's " Seinfeld " followed the misadventures of friends living in New York.
  • Stars Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Jason Alexander have continued acting. 
  • Recurring actors like Bryan Cranston and Patrick Warburton found success on hit shows.

Jerry Seinfeld played the titular character.

alexander star trek actor

Seinfeld portrayed a semi-fictionalized version of his life as a stand-up comedian on the sitcom .

Prior to that, he had a short-lived, recurring role as mail-delivery boy Frankie on the ABC sitcom "Benson ."

Seinfeld remains a comedy legend.

alexander star trek actor

Seinfeld returned to New York and his stand-up comedy roots when the show ended in 1998. He chronicled his post- "Seinfeld" tour in the Emmy-nominated 1998 HBO comedy special "I'm Telling You for the Last Time." 

His next Hollywood project was the animated film " Bee Movie " (2007), which he wrote, produced, and did lead voice-acting for. 

In 2012, he created the web series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," which featured Seinfeld and high-profile guests like Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres , Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, and President Barack Obama riding around in vintage cars before stopping to chat over coffee. The series became so popular that it was picked up by streaming giant Netflix. 

The streamer also struck a deal with Seinfeld for two stand-up specials and the development of scripted and unscripted comedy programming. " Jerry Before Seinfeld " was released on September 19, 2017, and " 23 Hours to Kill " — his first original stand-up special in 22 years — premiered on May 5, 2020.

The comedian still tours and most recently directed the Netflix movie "Unfrosted," a comedy about the history of Pop-Tarts.

Michael Richards played Cosmo Kramer.

alexander star trek actor

The stand-up comedian got his big break on Billy Crystal's cable television special.

He was a series regular on ABC's "Fridays" and had roles on NBC's "Cheers." 

He also appeared in films like "So I Married an Axe Murderer" (1993), "Problem Child" (1990), and "Coneheads" (1993).

Richards ran into some trouble after "Seinfeld."

alexander star trek actor

In 2000, Richards went on to play the lead in the eponymous "The Michael Richards Show" on NBC, which was canceled shortly after its debut. 

He returned to stand-up and famously found himself in hot water during a performance at the Laugh Factory comedy club in late 2006 for hurling racist epithets at a group of audience members. The incident was caught on video and led to a hiatus from stand-up . 

Richards appeared on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" from "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David in 2009. The season-seven episode featured a reunion of the core "Seinfeld" cast for the first time since the finale.

Other television stints included the role of Frank on the TV Land sitcom "Kirstie" and a gig on the 2019 romantic comedy "Faith, Hope & Love."

Most recently, he reunited with Seinfeld on his first red carpet in almost a decade. 

Jason Alexander played Jerry's best friend George Costanza.

alexander star trek actor

Before his role as Seinfeld's perpetually scheming best friend, Alexander nabbed notable roles as Phillip Stuckey in the film "Pretty Woman" (1990) and Hugo in the Disney-animated feature "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" (1996).

He also voiced the lead character in "Duckman" (1994) and won an Emmy for his guest appearance on "Dream On."

Alexander won a Tony and a Grammy for his work on "Jerome Robbins' Broadway" (1989). 

Alexander returned to his Broadway roots.

alexander star trek actor

Alexander didn't immediately find the same level of success after "Seinfeld."

His first project after the show ended was the ABC sitcom "Bob Patterson" which only aired five episodes. He was also on the short-lived CBS sitcom " Listen Up !" 

Over the years he continued to make appearances on television with roles on episodes of NBC's "Friends," UPN's "Star Trek: Voyager," Fox's "Malcolm in the Middle," USA Network's "Monk," and CBS's "Criminal Minds."

He returned to Broadway as the artistic director of Los Angeles' Reprise Theatre Company from 2007 to 2013. 

Alexander also appeared on live-stage shows including "The Producers" (2003) opposite Martin Short, "A Christmas Carol" (2004) with Kelsey Grammer, Broadway's "Fish in the Dark" (2015), and "The Portuguese Kid" (2017). 

Until 2020, Alexander also voiced Sy Borgman on Warner Bro's animated television series "Harley Quinn."

Some of his recent work includes cameos on Amazon Prime's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" as Asher Friedman and as Gene Lundy on CBS's "Young Sheldon." He also still performs onstage, most recently starring in the comedy "Judgement Day" at Chicago Shakespeare Theater.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus played Jerry's ex-girlfriend Elaine Benes.

alexander star trek actor

Prior to winning audiences over for her portrayal of Seinfeld's ex-turned-buddy, Louis-Dreyfus spent three seasons as a cast member on NBC's iconic sketch-comedy series " Saturday Night Live ."

Louis-Dreyfus cemented her legacy as an A-list comedian.

alexander star trek actor

Louis-Dreyfus has convincingly broken what came to be known as the " Seinfeld curse " since the sitcom ended.

She took her talents to her own show, CBS's "The New Adventures of Old Christine," where she won an Emmy .

Louis-Dreyfus followed that up with HBO's "Veep," where she played American Vice President Selina Meyer until the show ended in 2019. That role earned her a record-setting six consecutive Emmys. 

She received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor — one of America's highest achievements in comedy — in 2018. 

She also voiced characters in the animated films "A Bug's Life" (1998), "Planes" (2013), and "Onward" (2020).

In 2021, Louis-Dreyfus made her first appearance as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe . She's now set to produce and star in "Tangles," an animated movie based on a graphic novel about Alzheimer's disease. 

Wayne Knight played Seinfeld's archnemesis, Newman.

alexander star trek actor

Knight is best known as Seinfeld and Kramer's meddling neighbor Newman.

But before this role, Knight had several memorable performances in films like "Dirty Dancing" (1987), "Born on the Fourth of July" (1989), "JFK" (1991), and "Basic Instinct" (1992).

He also worked as a private investigator in New York for five years.

Knight continues to act on television and voices animated characters.

alexander star trek actor

When "Seinfeld" ended its run, Knight continued his role as Officer Don Orville on NBC's "3rd Rock from the Sun" which he took up when the show premiered in 1996 .

He also appeared on Broadway in "Art" (1999).

Knight had several more television stints including guest spots on NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," CBS's "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," FX's "Nip/Tuck," Fox's "Bones," ABC's "The Whole Truth," and Netflix's "Narcos."

He starred as a recurring character on TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland" and as part of the main cast on TV Land's " The Exes ."

His most extensive work after "Seinfeld" has been voicing characters on animated shows like Fox Kids cartoon "Toonsylvania,"  Disney's "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command,"  the Kids' WB! series "Xiaolin Showdown," the Nickelodeon cartoon "Catscratch," and in iconic Disney films " Hercules " (1997), "Toy Story 2" (1999), and "Tarzan" (1999).

Most recently, he appeared on the Prime series "Them."

Jerry Stiller played Frank Costanza.

alexander star trek actor

Stiller gained a new following late in his career as George Costanza's long-suffering father and proponent of Festivus , an anti- Christmas celebration.

But his late-career resurgence came after years as one half of the comedy duo Stiller and Meara with his wife of over 60 years, Anne Meara.

Stiller continued to find late-career success until his death in 2020.

alexander star trek actor

After "Seinfeld," Stiller continued to find success as Arthur Spooner on the CBS comedy "The King of Queens." 

He also did some voiced characters in the animated films "The Lion King 1½" (2004) and "Planes: Fire and Rescue" (2014).

Stiller also teamed up with his son, Ben Stiller, in multiple films including "Zoolander" (2001), "The Heartbreak Kid" (2007), and "Zoolander 2" (2016).

His memoir " Married to Laughter: A Love Story Featuring Anne Meara " was published by Simon & Schuster in 2000. 

In 2020,  Ben Stiller confirmed in a post on X that his father died of natural causes at the age of 92.

Estelle Harris played George's shrill-voiced mom Estelle Costanza.

alexander star trek actor

Harris started her career later in life with the films "Looking Up" and "Summerdog" in 1977 and "Once Upon a Time in America" in 1984.

She also made appearances on NBC's "Night Court" and Fox's "Married... with Children."

Harris continued her career in television and animation.

alexander star trek actor

Her list of voice-over credits is extensive.

Harris provided the voice of Mrs. Potato Head in "Toy Story 2" (1999), "Toy Story 3" (2010), and "Toy Story 4" (2019).

She can also be heard as Mama Lipsky in "Kim Possible," Thelma in "The Proud Family," and Death's mother in "Family Guy."

She had a recurring role on Disney Channel's " The Suite Life of Zack and Cody " and has made several guest appearances on television since "Seinfeld" wrapped. 

Harris died of natural causes in April 2022 — she was 93 years old.

John O'Hurley played J. Peterman.

alexander star trek actor

Before playing the founder of the J. Peterman Company and Elaine's boss, O'Hurley had roles on multiple soap operas .

These roles included CBS then ABC's "The Edge of Night," ABC's "Loving," CBS's "As the World Turns," CBS's "The Young and the Restless," NBC's "Santa Barbara," and ABC's "General Hospital."

O'Hurley appeared on several other shows.

alexander star trek actor

Like a few of his other former costars, O'Hurley did voice-over work after the show ended.

He voiced Roger Doofenshmirtz, Heinz Doofenshmirtz's brother, on the Disney Channel's "Phineas and Ferb" from 2008 to 2015.

He also had a recurring role as Dr. Christopher Neff on Lifetime's "Devious Maids" and preceded Steve Harvey as the host of "Family Feud" from 2006 to 2010. 

O'Hurley is also a musician who released a multi-album compilation of his original instrumental compositions called " Peace of Our Minds " in 2004. 

Viewers might also be familiar with his appearance as a contestant on the first season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars."  He lost to "General Hospital" star Kelly Monaco but was voted the winner by fans in a charity rematch months later.

Bryan Cranston appeared multiple times as Dr. Tim Whatley.

alexander star trek actor

Before finding regular acting work in the 1980s, Cranston earned $150 per wedding as an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church.

He eventually found roles on the soap opera "Loving" and the Fox series "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers."

Cranston's career took off after "Seinfeld."

alexander star trek actor

He landed the leading role of Hal Wilkerson on Fox's comedy "Malcolm in the Middle,"  earning three Emmy nominations.

Cranston won critical acclaim on Broadway as well, winning Tony Awards for playing American President Lyndon B. Johnson in "All the Way" (2013) and Howard Beale in "Network" (2017).

In recent years, he starred on Showtime's "Your Honor" from 2020 to 2023 and appeared in movies like "Asteroid City" (2023) and "Argylle" (2024).

Memory Alpha

  • View history

Alexander was a resident of Platonius who, unlike the other Platonians , did not have the power of psychokinesis . He was a person of extraordinarily short stature who served as court buffoon and slave to the other Platonians.

In 2268 , the USS Enterprise arrived at Platonius after receiving a call for medical assistance for the planet's leader Parmen , who was suffering from a fever due to a leg wound that became infected. Enterprise chief medical officer Leonard McCoy later determined that the others got their power from the food native to Platonius which contained kironide , a substance that after being assimilated by the pituitary gland promoted psychokinesis. Unfortunately, since dwarfism stemmed from a malfunction in that gland that also regulated body growth, Alexander did not have the psionic ability.

When Parmen wanted McCoy to remain on Platonius after curing him of the fever, he also refused to let the crew leave so that they could be used as slaves, and for his amusement. Alexander agreed to help the Enterprise crew escape. McCoy synthesized the kironide and injected himself, Kirk, and Spock. They offered Alexander an injection, but he refused to get a dose out of disgust for his fellow Platonians' laziness and cruelty. Later, when the Platonians forced Kirk, Spock, Lieutenant Uhura , and Christine Chapel , the latter two forced to beam down, to each wear Greek garb and to entertain them, Alexander, disgusted to see the Enterprise crew subjected to the Platonians' cruel humiliation, grabs a knife and tried to stab Parmen with it but was stopped. Parmen then tries to force Alexander to stab himself but Kirk, observing, prevented it when the kironide shot McCoy gave him earlier had finally started to take effect. Parmen tried to use Alexander to kill Kirk. He forced him to try and stab Kirk, but Kirk, whose powers were now stronger, turned Alexander around and he again approaches Parmen with the knife. Alexander wanted to kill Parmen, but Kirk dissuaded him.

Afterward, as per his earlier request to Captain Kirk, Alexander departed Platonius aboard the Enterprise . ( TOS : " Plato's Stepchildren ")
