4. Kelsey Grammer
In real life: Comics – and Trek – fan Grammer is still best known for playing Dr Frasier Crane, one of the longest-running TV characters, on Cheers and Frasier.
He’s also been in several movies, including X-Men: The Last Stand, where he appeared as Hank McCoy, AKA Beast, under a furry blue costume.
In Star Trek: Grammer turns up as Captain Morgan Bateson, the man in charge of the USS Bozeman, which gets trapped in a temporal anomaly in 2278 (clumsy!)
It eventually reappears in 2368, colliding with the Enterprise-D over and over again, killing everyone until the crew figures out what’s up with the space weirdness in the Next Generation episode ‘Cause And Effect’ from Season Five.
Did you know? The Bozeman (named after the town in Montana where episode writer Brannon “I never met a technobabble cliché I couldn’t write” Braga was born) has the registry number NCC-1941.
It’s a nod to designer Greg Jein who also worked on miniatures for the Spielberg pic. How’s that for nerdy?
