I didn't expect the Generations crew to count. I just wanted to say it.

But what about Torres' Klingon half in "Faces"?

I am considering Torres-half not a main character, but one produced for that episode.

Elim Garak: 4+2+1
Starbuck: 2+1
Omega: +3
Prakesh: 1
The359: +1
The Shadow: +1+1
TSN: +2
PopMaze: +2
AndrewR: +3 pending

Alright, I'm going to shy away from Voyager to keep these questions easily verifiable

What TOS actor(ess) played a member of the 3 major alien races?

That's a tricky one but I think it's Mark Lenard:

  • Sarek in Journey to Babel, a couple of movies and a TNG episode or two
  • The Romulan commander in Balance of Terror
  • A Klingon in The Motion Picture

Andrew mentioned two musicians that weren't mentioned before (Sisko and Jadzia). (And Harry said in "Ashes to Ashes" that he'd dropped the clarinet for the saxophone, so that does count. )

Do dreams of people dying count ("Barge of the Dead"), because they arguably didn't die? In any reality.

And Sisko isn't dead. He is "dead."

Alright, because of the complexity(unbeknownst to me at the time), I'm going to strike the death question from the list, and give everyone 1 point who contributed an answer.

Smack me next time something like that happens.

Andrew get 2 points for his belated answer, but from now on the answers must come before the next question for them to count.

Mark Leonard is correct! Starbuck gets a point.

The next question is:
What distinctly non-humanoid creatures have shown up in Star Trek?


Elim Garak: 4 +1 = 5
Starbuck: 2 +1 = 3
AndrewR: +2+1 = 3
Prakesh: 1 = 1
The359: +1 = 1
The Shadow: +1 = 1
TSN: +1 = 1
PopMaze: +1 = 1
Omega: +1 = 1
Fabrux: +1 = 1
First of Two: +1 = 1

For a maximum of three: tribbles, Hortas, the nameless "Equinox" aliens.

Well, the Hortas are arguably sentient. The "Equinox" aliens appear to be sentient. We don't know about tribbles, although it's possible. I guess.

"Equinox" aliens, the Founders, Hortas.

Cochrane's companion, Q, and the exocomps.

You are wise, witty, and wonderful, but you spend far too much time reading this sort of trash.

Armus, the Sheliak (only "vaguely humanoid", I believe they said), and Gomtuu.

Classification R-3 lifeforms, the Sheliak are only vaguely humanoid. "The Ensigns of Command" [TNG]

Alrightie, well I left this question up to give people with different time zones a chance to answer...
TSN, if you can offer a picture or argue that Sheliak do not have the basic 2 arms-2 legs and a a head in the right place type of body, then you can have that point. The question does say "distinctly non-humanoid." Otherwise 'vaguely humanoid' won't count.


3 for Garak, 3 for Omega, 2 for TSN(1 pending).

Well, since these multi-answer questions I seem to mess up too much, I think I'm going to go specific.
Easy question:

What/who do these three phrases symbolize, and why are they signifigant to it?

Oh my.
Reading Glasses
Iowa

Those phrases symbolisze James Tiberious Kirk. "Oh my." were his last words, he required reading glasses as he was allergic to Retnax V, and he was born and grew up in Iowa.
