This is a glossary of the notable Star Trek TOS and TNG cast characters and other actors from two of my favorite Star Trek series – Star Trek The Original Series (TOS) and Star Trek The Next Generation (TNG). It also features the episode(s) that they were in or the TOS/TNG movie. It’d be nearly impossible for me to list each and every character so I’m listing some of my personal favorites and the ones that I can readily identify.
If you scroll to the of this post, you’ll be able to see all of the pins side by side that will make it easier for you to pin your favorite pin(s).
Admiral Aaron – Starfleet Admiral who was infected by the alien parasite which attempted to take over Starfleet Command. Along with Admirals Savar and Quinn, Aaron tried to lure senior staff from the Enterprise down to Headquarters so they could be co-opted.. Conspiracy (TNG).
Dr. Adams, Tristin – Director of the Tantalus V Penal Colony, Dr. Adams revolutionized mental hospitals making them less like cages and more like resort colonies. While working on Tantalus V Penal Colony, Dr. Adams developed a neural neutralizer that drained a person’s thoughts and replaced them with whatever suggestions he wished to be put in there. His colleague, Dr. Simon van Gelder discovered what he was doing and protested; however, it led to him getting subjected to the neutralizer. Dr. Adams even suggested Captain Kirk to the beam after he discovered how dangerous it could be. However, the power was disrupted during the treatment session and Kirk was able to turn the situation around by knocking the Dr. out and leaving him in the room. The power was restored and when it was, the good ol’ Doctor discovered the neural neutralizer at it’s highest settings. Dagger of the Mind (TOS)
Anan 7 – Kirk was determined to end the on-going war. He and Spock took control of the war room and destroyed the computers that ran the war operations. Then he offered Anan 7 two choices: 1) make real war, with real weapons or 2) make peace. With the gracious help of Ambassador Fox, Anan 7 decided in favor of attaining peace. A Taste of Armageddon (TOS)
Andrea –A female android. Andrea isn’t as advanced as another android (Ruk). She hasn’t been able to feel emotion until it’s too late for her and poor Roger. This was the very first appearance of androids. Others would reappear in “I, Mudd”, and “Requiem For Methuselah”, not to mention Lieutenant Commander Data, his brother Lore, his daughter Lal, and his mother Dr. Juliana Tainer. What are Little Girls Made of? (TOS)
Android Captain Kirk – An android duplicate is made of Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The android is a complete duplicate of Captain Kirk except for one small quirk that the real Kirk implanted into his subconscious before the android was made: “Mind your own business, Mr. Spock. I’m sick of your half-breed interference, you hear?” as a false memory into his duplicate’s memory banks. When the android Kirk said this phrase to Mr. Spock, he realized there was something wrong and alerted the security team to beam down to Exo III to find the “real” captain. What are Little Girls Made of? (TOS)
Anya – A shapeshifting guardian of the planet’s leader Salia who is being transported on the Enterprise-D. Anya is currently in the form of an older woman and has a fight with Worf at the end of the movie when Salia who’s also a shape shifter defends Worf from the attack. Dauphin (TNG)
Apollo – An alien who the ancient Greeks believed him to be a God. He’s let down when no one believes in God’s anymore and disappears. Who Mourns for Adonis (TOS)
Ardra – 1,000 years ago a promise was made to Ardra during a time of great troubles. The lady portraying to be Ardra is a con artist that has great technology at her disposal and has made her startling return so she can be rewarded with the promise that was made so many years ago. Ardra is unmasked by Captain Picard and his crew. Devil’s Due (TNG)
Ariana – Ariana was plagued with images of Wyatt Miller, a human visiting the Enterprise who later joined the Tarellian crew. Haven (TNG).
Ariel – Member of the female-lead ruling council on Angel One. Ariel secretly married the freighter Odin survivor Ramsey, and was branded a traitor by Beata. Execution was avoided after intervention by the Enterprise Away Team. Angel One (TNG).
Armus – a black goo on a planet that was pure evil that had gotten that way from people who shed all of their evil into him. He’s the one who’s responsible for killing Tasha Yar. Skin of Evil (TNG)
Mr. Atoz – The librarian on a planet who controls where people go through a time-portal device that he operates. All our Yesterdays (TOS). This is an episode that Spock lost nearly all of his emotions because he made a shift in time to when the Vulcans were very savage and couldn’t control their emotions at that time.
Ayelbourne – Kirk found Ayelborne and the Council to be a study in conundrums. One moment, they were most anxious to help him hide from the Klingons, and the next, they were betraying him to the Klingons. Later Ayelborne retrieved Kirk from a Klingon cell, bypassing the guards effortlessly. The Klingons were enraged by the escape and murdered two hundred Organians, Ayelborne displayed little concern. Each time Kirk confronted him, he gently told Kirk that he didn’t understand the Organians. Truer words were rarely spoken, but Kirk did not know it yet. Ayelborne asked both groups of visitors (the Klingons and the Federation) to leave; their propensity for violence was deeply painful to the Organians. Then, he and Claymare departed, revealing their true nature in the process, as they dispersed into energy. Errand of Mercy (TOS)
Balok – A very small alien played by Clint Howard is a commander of his ship and tries to ward of the Enterprise by using an intimidating puppet which I found out was voiced by Ted Cassidy. The Corbomite Maneuver (TOS)
Arctus Baran – The Captain that in charge of a ship that was on a hunt to find an ancient Vulcan weapon of great destruction. Gambit (TNG)
Barclay, Reginald – portrayed by Dwight Schultz. He’s shy so he spends a lot of his time in the holodeck. He was in more than one TNG episode and had a brief cameo in First Contact. Hollow Pursuits (TNG)
What La Forge doesn’t know is Barclay hides in the holodeck to avoid contacting his co-workers.
Captain Picard requests that La Forge requests Geordi takes Barclay under his wings.
Lt Barclay has a tendency to “veg out” so Wesley has nicknamed him “Broccoli”. Captain Picard makes a trip to check out Barclay’s work and makes a slip of the tongue by calling him by his nickname.
This is one of the more funnier episodes because of the holodeck experience of Riker overreacting to the way that Lt. Barclay has portrayed him and Troi stops him from overreacting. But then it’s Troi’s turn to get upset when she sees how she’s portrayed and then she wants to immediately stop the program and Riker repeats word for word the advice that she spoke briefly to him.
Barclay turns off his holodeck program for the last time but before he leaves he tells the computer to delete all of the programs except for one.
Captain Morgan Bateson – portrayed by Kelsey Grammar – The Commanding officer of the Federation Starship USS Bozeman, which became trapped in a temporal causality loop many years ago. After 90 years they finally pass through unaware of the passage of time. Cause and Effect (TNG)
Beata – When an Enterprise away-team visits matriarchal planet Angel One to search for survivors they soon find themselves embroiled in a political nightmare. Meanwhile, the Enterprise is struck down by a deadly virus and forced into a confrontation with the Romulans. Riker meets Beata, the leader of the government on planet Angel One. Beata was known as the Elected One and was focused on maintaining the planet’s matriarchal structure and keeping the men as second-class citizens. Angel One (TNG).
Bele, Commissioner – Commissioner Bele has been pursuing Lokai. They are both from the planet Cheron. Bele tried to take control of the ship, therefore, Captain Kirk had no choice but to arm the vessel’s self-destruct sequence. Let that be your Last Battlefield. (TOS)
Boothby – played by Ray Walston (better known for My Favorite Martian) – he plays a mentor to Captain Picard and is the Grounds Keeper at the Starfleet Academy. Captain Picard has a lot of admiration for him. I believe the episode that he actually made his appearance was The First Duty (TNG).
Brahms, Leah – An engineer who was responsible for developing warp drive capability of galaxy class starships. A crisis arrives and Geordi La Forge creates a holodeck or her which later get really personified with her personality according to Starfleet records. She makes a repeat performance a year later in another episode and this time Geordi gets to know the “real” Leah Brahms. Galaxy’s Child (TNG).
Something interesting that I didn’t catch in an episode of All Good Things Must End is that there’s a reference that Geordi is married to someone named Leah and I don’t know how I missed that.
Bynars, The – The Bynars commandeered the Enterprise during a computer refit in order to rescue their home planet’s computer from the effects of the Beta Magellan sun going supernova. They’re the ones who invented the holodeck program of Minuet to distract Riker. 11001001 (TNG).
Professor Carter, Robert – A single surviving member of the “salt vampire” race continued to live on the planet. It killed Nancy (Carter’s wife) and then because he was lonely and she needed salt they continued to live together. But when the USS Enterprise visited for a routine check, Prof. Crater was upset and wanted them to leave, more than likely so no one would get killed. The Man Trap (TOS).
Lt Castillo, Richard – The Enterprise C has somehow traveled 22 years into the future and Lt. Castillo’s commanding officer, Captain Rachel Garrett gets killed. This is where time travel is so intriguing because he and Tasha Yar (who Guinan has had a discussion with and Tasha realizes that she might not belong there anymore) return to fight and save history which destroyed the alternate timeline. And to boot he was the love interest of Tasha for when she has a daughter in another later episode. Yesterday’s Enterprise (TNG).
Ensign Pavel Chekov – Starfleet officer who was in several different Star Trek movies to include: TOS, Star Trek The Motion Picture, The Wrath of Kahn, The Search for Spock, The Voyage Home, The Final Frontier, The Undiscovered Country, Star Trek Generations, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond. Two of his most notable roles were in the Wrath of Kahn and The Voyage Home. I especially like the part when Chekov is being rescued that he dreams of being Admiral Chekov. Favorite episode – The Voyage Home. Another good scene in that same movie is he asking for directions to where they keep the nuclear vessels.
Childress – Ben Ben was the leader of the mining team on Rigel XII and had became rich because of the lithium crystals that were as valuable as gold and diamonds for space travel. Ben reached a point that he wanted to have a wife and he married Eve McHuron via subspace radio. Later he gave Captain Kirk an ultimatum: either he set Harry Mudd free and allow Mudd’s women to transport down to stay on Rigel XII or he wouldn’t give Kirk the lithium crystals needed to repair the Enterprise. Eventually Ben learned that she didn’t have beauty on the outside but was willing to give her a chance because he learned she had the power of inner true beauty. Mudd’s Women (TOS)
Captain Christopher, John – 1960-era U.S. Air Force captain who was brought aboard the Enterprise after his fighter jet was unintentionally crushed by a tractor beam. Tomorrow is Yesterday (TOS) To the best of my knowledge this was the first encounter of Star Trek with Time Traveling.
Claymare – Claymore was the righthand of Avelbourne on the Council. Claymore and Avelbourne explain (after they’ve stopped the fighting to continue) to Commander Kor and Captain Kirk why the fleets were paralyzed, and they reveal the truth about the Organians – that they’re extremely advanced, extremely powerful non-corporeal beings. Errand of Mercy (TOS).
Cochrane, Zefram – Earth’s inventor of warp drive and the first human to make first contact with Vulcans. Metamorphosis (TOS) and Star Trek First Contact. The role was played much better during Star Trek’s First Contact.
Computer Voice – Majel Barrett was the only performer to have had a role on the first six Star Trek series, usually not as a character but as the voice of the various computers used throughout all those series and five of the Star Trek films. Too many appearances to list them all. She was the goddess of Star Trek.
Cogley, Samuel T. – Samuel T. Cogley is a lawyer to defend Captain Kirk when he’s ordered to face a Court Martial for one of his crewman’s death. Samuel T. Cogley calls on the assistance of the entire Enterprise crew to clear Kirk’s name. He clears Captain’s Kirk name with the help of Bones (Dr. McCoy) and Spock who isolate the heartbeat of everyone aboard the Enterprise. Court Martial – (TOS).
Dr. Crusher, Beverly – Chief Medical Officer aboard the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) and USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-E); widow of Jack Crusher and mother to Wesley Crusher. She appeared in Encounter at Farpoint, and many TNG episodes and movies including: , Star Trek Generations, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond, First Contact, and Nemesis. Favorite episode: The Big Goodbye (TNG).
Crusher, Wesley – Enterprise-D civilian (crew family member), then Starfleet Academy cadet; son of Jack Crusher and Enterprise-D’s chief medical officer Beverly Crusher. Many TNG episodes. Favorite episode: Journey’s End. This post does a really good job of describing the final appearance of Wesley Crusher in 6 Best Wesley Crusher Moments.
The Crystalline Entity – A life form that destroyed colonies on several planets. It also conspired with Lore in an attempt to destroy life on the Enterprise-D. It was destroyed by the mother of one of its victims. Datalore and Silicon Avatar (TNG).
Lt D’Sora, Jenna – Starfleet lieutenant and Enterprise-D security officer who fell in love with Data. In Theory (TNG).
Daras -– When Kirk and Spock arrive on the planet’s surface of Ekos, a Zeon man urges them to hide. They watch from their concealed hiding place as the man is arrested by officers wearing swastika armbands. Spock reminds Kirk that the Prime Directive prohibits them from interfering. A viewscreen in the street plays news footage revealing that Ekos has adopted a military regime similar to that of Nazi Germany and is now at war with Zeon. Kirk is puzzled that another planet could independently develop a culture identical to one that once existed on Earth. Patterns of Force (TOS)
Darvin, Arne – If you know this one, you’re a true Trekkie. He appeared in two episodes: one in The Trouble with Tribbles (TOS) and one of my other favorites that is worth mentioning is the Trials and Tribbleations from Deep Space Nine. In “The Trouble with Tribbles”, Darvin is a Klingon who poses as a Federation official to sabotage Federation attempts to colonize Sherman’s Planet. A tribble, sensitive to Klingons, hints at his true identity, which is confirmed by Dr. Leonard McCoy. Darvin is arrested.
He reprised his role for “Trials and Tribble-ations”, in which Darvin gains passage from Cardassia to Bajor aboard the USS Defiant. Darvin uses the Bajoran Orb of Time to send the ship back to the time and place depicted in “The Trouble with Tribbles”. Intent on exacting revenge on James T. Kirk, he plants a bomb in a tribble; the Defiant‘s crew prevents Kirk’s murder and captures Darvin. This is an excellent episode that subtly puts the cast of Deep Space Nine seamlessly into Star Trek The Original Series many different ways.
Data – he’s an android and is the 2nd officer on the Enterprise. In addition to several appearances in TNG, he was in Star Trek Generations, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond, First Contact, Insurrection, and Nemesis. Favorite episode: A Fistful of Datas where Data plays several roles.
Captain Dathon – Tamarian captain, the first of his race to successfully establish communications between his species and the Federation. The race speaks with the use of metaphors and Captain Dathon sacrifices his life in order that they (he and Captain Picard) can effectively communicate. One of the repeated lines in this episode is Darmok and Jillard at Tanagra! Darmok (TNG)
Captain Decker, Matt – The Doomsday machine killed his ship and he wants revenge on the creature. He tries to take over the ship and Kirk has a fit because he’s on the other ship trying to save the day. After losing command because Spock calls him unfit, Decker tries to kill the planet ‘eater’ by going on a suicide mission with one of the shuttles belonging to the USS Enterprise. He fails; however, the analysis of his attempt provided inspiration to Spock for the final solution to defeat the machine. The Doomsday Machine (TOS).
Deela – The U.S.S. Enterprise responds to a distress call from the planet Scalos; where Scalosians were asking for assistance. After there arrival there are no life forms registering on the tricorders. One of the crewmembers that beamed down (Compton) drank some of the local water and suddenly disappears. Later, Captain Kirk drinks some coffee, and he too suddenly finds himself “accelerated” far beyond the rest of his crew. Kirk meets Deela, the Queen of the Scalosians, who specifically chose Kirk to be by her side. Deela reveals the plan to freeze the entire ship because in their accelerated stages, any damage to their cells can cause an accelerated death. They need the help of the enterprise to stay alive. Kirk is able to send a coded message to Spock and then shortly thereafter Spock joins him in his accelerated state (along with an antidote). In the wink of an eye, Spock makes several repairs to the ship because he’s moving at an accelerated rate. Wink of an Eye (TOS)
Dr. Dehner, Elizabeth – Dr. Dehner realizes how inhuman and dangerous Mitchell has become and tries to help Kirk defeat him. Without remorse, Mitchell kills Elizabeth Dehner. Before he can refocus his PSI powers, Kirk creates a rockslide that entombs Mitchell, killing him. Where No man has gone before (TOS).
Lt DeSalle – he was in three episodes of TOS (The Squire of Gothos, This Side of Paradise, and Catspaw. He was of French descent and had roles as a navigator, a botanist, and assistant chief engineer. He even once held command of the Enterprise while Kirk and Spock were being held captive in Catspaw.
Eve – Eve McHuron – One of Harry Mudd’s cargo, Eve came from an agricultural planet where there weren’t many women and desired a husband. Although, in actuality, Eve’s “normal” appearance was slightly askew, her use of the Venus Drug enhanced her beauty. Having taken a liking to Captain Kirk, she was wed to Ben Childress via subspace radio, even though Childress disproved of many of her qualities. Knowing the Venus Drug made her appearance a complete fake, she took the drug anyway, but was surprised to learn that Captain Kirk switched the drug with coloured gelatin, proving that Eve had true beauty in her all along. She remained on Rigel XII with Childress, who claimed he wanted to discuss some things with her. Mudd’s Women (TOS).
Finnigan – Starfleet Academy cadet, upperclassman, prankster and merciless tormentor to a young fellow cadet named James T. Kirk. I love the ending when Dr. McCoy comes out and says how great the place is for recreation. Shore Leave (TOS)
Fajo, Kiva – he kidnapped Data for his collection of priceless artifacts. The Most Toys (TNG).
Lt Commander Finney – Lt. Commander Finney loved the service, and hoped to command his own starship in the future. Finney met a young midshipman, James Kirk. The two became such close friends that Finney named his daughter Jame after Kirk. Finney was finally assigned to a starship, aboard the USS Republic, where he was later joined by Ensign Kirk. Finney hold’s Kirk responsible for his misfortune of not being able to command a starship of his own and fakes his own death. Then a court martial is convened that accuses Captain Kirk of his murder. Court Martial (TOS).
Flint – Rigellian fever, an extremely deadly plague, strikes the U.S.S. Enterprise crew. Kirk, Spock and McCoy beam down to a supposedly uninhabited planet in search of the only known antidote, Ryetalyn. To their surprise, they encounter Flint and his daughter, Rayna. Flint is not happy to have any visitors and orders his robot to gather and process Ryetalyn, while the three officers are entertained by his daughter. The robots contaminate the first batch of antidote, and Dr. McCoy tells another must be made. In the meantime, Kirk and Rayna have become attracted to each other, to Flint’s jealous objection. Over the course of time, Flint explains that he is an immortal, who wandered the Earth for centuries in various personas, including Brahms and da Vinci. He came to this planet to retire in peace and built the “Rayna” android as his companion. He had hoped that her involvement with Kirk would speed up her emotional growth, but now he has become hopelessly jealous. Not understanding such intense emotions, Rayna short-circuits and “dies.” The landing party takes the Ryetalyn and returns to the Enterprise. McCoy tells them that Flint, too, will soon perish because what made him immortal was the atmosphere of Earth. Leaving it robbed him of that power. At the end of the episode in a surprisingly compassionate gesture, Spock uses a Vulcan mind touch to erase the painful memories of Rayna from Kirk’s mind. Requiem for Methuselah (TOS).
Ambassador Fox – Arriving at the Division of Control, Fox and his attaché were immediately rounded up and herded towards a disintegration station. Only with his death imminent did Fox begin to understand the nature of the Eminian Union. Fortunately, just as they reached the chamber, Spock (who had been able to contact the ship and discover that Fox was on the planet) intervened before the ambassador could be reduced to atoms, and took him to the war room, where Kirk was being held. After Kirk and Spock ended the war by destroying the computers that ran it, Fox offered to remain as a negotiator, to help the two rivals hammer out a peace treaty. A Taste of Armageddon (TOS).
Captain Garth – Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock are held hostage by Captain Garth, one of Kirk’s heroes, but also an insane man who has taken over the Elba II insane asylum. Whom Gods Destroy (TOS).
Gem – On a planet in the Minaran star system, Kirk, Mr. Spock and Dr. McCoy encounter a mute alien, whom McCoy names “Gem” and the Vians, who torture the crew. The Empath (TOS).
Gorn Captain – Pursuing a Gorn ship responsible for the destruction of an entire Earth colony, the Enterprise is forced into an encounter with the Metreons, a powerful race who abhor violence. They place Kirk and the Gorn captain on a desolate world where they are left to fight to the death. Arena (TOS)
Grayson, Amanda – Spock’s human mother who was married to Sarek. In the 2009 Star Trek movie starring Chris Pine, the role of Spock’s mom was played by Wyonna Rider (on the right).
Guinan – Enigmatic female El-Aurian Bartender of the Ten Forward Lounge on the Enterprise-D, close acquaintance of Captain Picard (relationship “beyond friendship, beyond family”), whose wise counsel proved invaluable many times. My favorite episodes that she was in was Time’s Arrow when her and Data first met. Time’s Arrow (TNG).
Hagon – Lutan’s former aide. After a fight to the death between Yareena and Lt. Yar, Hagon become Yareena’s First One. Code of Honor (TNG).
Haro, Mitena – Picard is kidnapped and deposited in a laboratory maze with three other captives while a replica of the Captain begins to wreak havoc with the crew of the Enterprise, leaving Riker no choice but mutiny. Mitena Haro was one of the principal three captives with him. She was portrayed as a Starfleet Academy cadet from Bolarus IX. Haro was supposedly kidnapped by an alien species, name unknown, who duplicated her to understand the concept of authority. Haro blew her cover when she knew too much for a cadet when casually questioned by Captain Picard. Two other captives with Haro were Kova Thall and Esoqq. Allegiance (TNG).
Hedford, Nancy – Escorting Federation Commissioner Nancy Hedford for emergency medical treatment, the Galileo shuttlecraft is pulled off course by a mysterious energy entity which deposits it on a planet where none other than Warp Drive inventor Zephram Cochrane is living. Metamorphosis. (TOS).
Hengist – Kirk and McCoy decide to take Scotty, who is recovering from a head wound accidentally caused by a female crew member, to a nightclub on the planet Argelius II. Scotty becomes infatuated with a lovely dancer at the club, and they leave together. In the meantime, Kirk and McCoy decide to sample some of the planet’s other pleasures and leave. A scream sends them to a foggy alley to find the dancer dead with Scotty holding a bloody knife. McCoy suggests that perhaps Scotty’s subconscious distrust of women since his accident has manifested itself in murder. Hengist, the local authority, wants to arrest Scotty, but Kirk intervenes and seeks the help of a priestess of an old psionic cult. Unfortunately, she’s killed and once more the blame seems to fall at Scotty’s feet. Before she dies, the priestess says that something with an insatiable hunger and hatred of women is present in the room. Scotty still claims to have amnesia during the time when the women were killed. In the end, the entity turns out to be an ancient life form, Redjac, previously known on Earth as Jack the Ripper. It now appears in true form: a noncorporeal vampire who thrives on others’ fear. It preys on women because they are more easily frightened. It has been living in the body of Hengist and, when discovered, kills Hengist and flees to the U.S.S. Enterprise. McCoy administers tranquilizers to everyone on board so that the creature cannot evoke fear. Enraged, it is forced to return to Hengist’s body. Kirk, knowing this would happen, beams it into space at maximum dispersal, where it will die for lack of nourishment. Wolf in the Fold (TOS).
Hedril – a young Kirsten Dunst plays Hedril, she’s a young Cairn female who accompanied her father Maques on a diplomatic visit to the U.S.S. Enterprise-D. Hedril’s strong resemblance to Lwaxana Troi’s deceased daughter Kestra, caused Lwaxana to lapse into a trauma-induced coma. Dark Page (TNG).
Hill, Dixon – A character that Captain Picard (a gumshoe detective) likes to portray in the holodeck that has been featured in two other episodes and also briefly in the First Contact movie (to distract the Borg). The Big Goodbye (TNG).
Homn – Valet to Lwaxana Troi. Homn hardly ever spoke. On a visit to the Enterprise, Homn accompanied Lwaxana and consumed copious amounts of alcoholic beverages at the pre-joining ceremony of Deanna Troi and Wyatt Miller. Haven (TNG).
Hugh – Better known as the borg as “I am Hugh.” Former Borg originally known as “Third of Five”. I, Borg, Descent, Descent, Part II (TNG).
Jones, Cyrano – A space trader – When the U.S.S. Enterprise receives a top-priority order to protect a shipment of quadrotriticale grain, Kirk is irritated to be guarding a shipment of “wheat.” But the shipment is meant for famine-struck Sherman’s Planet, and Klingons are taking shore leave on the space station. Adding to Kirk’s irritation is Federation Undersecretary for Agriculture, Nilz Baris, and his pesty assistant, Arne Darvin, who inform Kirk that Starfleet Command is afraid the Klingons may try to steal the grain. Another problem arises when a space trader, Cyrano Jones, gives Uhura a purring ball of fluff known as a tribble. Charmed by the creature, Uhura takes it back to the Enterprise. However, as McCoy soon learns, tribbles are born pregnant and the more they eat … and they eat constantly … the more they multiply. Soon the starship is overrun by the furry creatures. Kirk soon finds that the bins that were once full of the precious quadrotriticale are now full of dead tribbles. The grain has been poisoned by a Klingon agent disguised as the Undersecretary’s assistant, Darvin. His true identity is exposed when Kirk discovers that tribbles don’t like Klingons (and vice-versa) and squeak whenever they’re in near proximity. The Klingons leave the space station and Scotty rids the Enterprise of the tribbles by beaming them aboard the departing Klingon ship where, as he tells Kirk, ” … they’ll be no tribble at all.” The Trouble with Tribbles (TOS).
Kahless – Legendary Klingon warrior and first emperor of the Klingon Empire; also known as “the Unforgettable” among his people. A clone created in 2369 (for TNG) was made ceremonial emperor by Gowron. The Savage Curtain (TOS) and the Rightful Heir (TNG). Favorite episode – The Rightful Heir (TNG).
Kamala – Since her birth, she was intended to be a bride in an effort to reunite the two planets. The Perfect Mate (TNG).
Kara – The U.S.S. Enterprise is on a routine mission in deep space when a beautiful young woman beams onto the bridge. Without a word, she touches a band on her wrist and everyone is rendered unconscious. She moves around the bridge until finally she comes to Spock. Smiling, she lays a hand on the Vulcan’s head, as if she’s found what she was looking for. When Kirk awakes, Spock is gone from the bridge. Before the captain can find out where his first officer has gone, McCoy calls, demanding his presence in sickbay immediately. Spock’s body lays on a diagnostic table, on full life support. McCoy explains that his brain is gone … miraculously removed with some technology that the doctor has never seen before. Every nerve was sealed and there was no blood lost. However, McCoy tells him if the Vulcan’s brain isn’t returned to his body within 24 hours, Spock will die. Kirk orders the starship in pursuit of the woman’s ship. By following their ion trail, the Enterprise arrives at the sixth planet in the Sigma Draconis system. When Kirk and party beam down, they find a rough, frozen world inhabited by two peoples: the Morgs, who are comprised solely of men, who live on the surface in a primitive culture, and the Eymorgs, an all female group who live deep under the planet’s surface. While the Eymorgs live in a highly technological society, they don’t understand that technology and are trained to perform various tasks — like the operation enabling them to steal Spock’s brain — by what is known as the “Great Teacher.” This “teacher” was left behind by ancient technologists who once lived on the planet. McCoy, having fashioned a device which will control Spock’s body without the aid of his brain, beams down with the Vulcan to join Kirk and his party. They find Kara, the woman who beamed aboard the Enterprise. They quickly realize that Kara doesn’t have the skill or knowledge to have performed the operation on Spock, and she tells them about the Great Teacher. Finally, Kirk finds Spock’s brain. The Eymorgs have hooked it up to run their central control system. The brain is now revered as the “Controller,” which they hope will control their central systems for the next 10,000 years. After trying unsuccessfully to get Kara to repeat the operation on Spock in reverse, McCoy submits to the Great Teacher device and gains the knowledge needed to restore Spock’s brain and save the Vulcan’s life. Without their Controller, the Eymorgs fear for their existence. Kirk suggests they share their greater knowledge with the Morgs and live together on the surface. Spock’s Brain (TOS).
Keeler, Edith – one of my favorite TOS episodes. In 1930, during the Great Depression, Keeler was a social worker who died in a traffic accident. Centuries later, during a survey of the Guardian of Forever by the USS Enterprise, the ship’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Leonard McCoy, during a temporary bout of insanity by an accidental injection of cordrazine, escapes into the Earth’s past. While there, he saved Keeler’s life, it sparked a chain of events throughout the timeline, essentially changing history. In the altered timeline, Keeler, a passionate believer in peace, founded a movement which delayed the entry of the United States into World War II, thus paving the way for an Axis victory. Captain James T. Kirk and Spock were able to follow McCoy into the past. Kirk and Spock were able to prevent McCoy from saving Keeler’s life, thus restoring the timeline. These events were particularly stressful for Kirk, as he had fallen in love with Keeler. One of the best lines in the show is: McCoy: “Jim, do you realize what you’ve done?” Spock: “Yes, Doctor, he knows.” The City on the Edge of Forever (TOS).
Keeper, The – She kept Pike captive and put him threw illusions from his past including Earth, Rigel VII. She later released Pike after she was taken hostage by Pike. The Cage (TOS).
Captain Kirk, James T. – portrayed by William Shatner and Chris Pine who are both Captains of the USS Enterprise, and major characters in the original Star Trek and ten Star Trek movies.
Commander Klag – First Officer of the Klingon Cruiser Pagh. Klag relinquished his position to Riker when he took part in an officer exchange program. Klag developed a respect for Riker, and was instrumental in convincing his captain (Captain Kargan) not to open fire on the Enterprise after the discovery of a microbiotic colony on the Pagh’s hull. A Matter of Honor (TNG).
Kor – Once the hostilities between the two began to reach its climax, all ships suddenly and mysteriously became paralyzed and all weapons became superheated and temporarily rendered useless. Unknown to both sides at the time, the Organians were in fact an advanced non-corporeal species, despite their primitive way of life. As quickly as it started, the Organians effectively ended the occupation, the war, and Kor’s governorship. Errand of Mercy (TOS).
Korby Roger – Deceased fiancé of Enterprise nurse Christine Chapel. Good episode with Ted Cassidy playing one of the ancient ones that were first created a long time ago. What are Little Girls Made of? (TOS).
Korob – Kirk, Spock and McCoy beam down to planet Pyris VII to discover Scotty and Sulu have been transformed into mindless zombies by beings known as Korob and Sylvia. The trio are taken prisoner and soon demonstrated the extend of their captors’ powers when the Enterprise is subjected to immense heat. Note: I’m a big fan of Gilligan’s Island too. I used to turn on the Television once I got home from school to watch the next episode of Gilligan. I selected this picture because Gilligan is wearing the same costume in Love’s Secret Admirer. Catspaw (TOS).
Krako, Jojo –- It’s comical trying to listen to Kirk and Spock speak in gangster slang. Especially when they meet another gang leader by the name of Jojo Krako who also wants to be the head mobster. A Piece of the Action (TOS).
La Forge, Geordi – Chief engineer of the Enterprise-D, captain of the Galaxy-class USS Challenger in an alternate future. He was in Star Trek Generations, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Star Trek Beyond, First Contact, Insurrection, and Nemesis. Favorite episode:
Lal – A daughter created by Data. The Offspring (TNG)
Landru – In approximately 4,000 BC, war threatened to destroy the planet Beta III and its inhabitants. The leader at that time was a gifted engineer and philosopher, Landru. He believed the way to preserve his people was to take them back to a time of peace and tranquility. He sought to end war, crime, disease – all of the evils that plagued his world, and to produce “the unity of good” – a world without hate, without fear, without conflict. To that end, he built and programmed a sophisticated machine, which took on his identity. The machine Landru built was powerful enough to manage the affairs of an entire planetary population. It ruled Beta III for about 6,000 years, managing the affairs of each individual and striving to meet the ambitious goals its builder set it. Its subjects were oblivious to the fact that they were ruled by a computer. Since Landru was hidden behind a solid wall, it is likely that its builder intended this; even millenia later, some of the citizens of Beta III believed the Landru who ruled their world was the same one who saved it so many centuries ago, and none realized it was a machine. The passing years of peaceful rule had inculcated in the people a kind of reflexive worship of Landru. This could be seen even in members of the underground who sought freedom and actively opposed Landru’s will. The Return of the Archons (TOS).
Lawgiver, The – The Lawgiver and others like him enforce the will of Landru when other measures, such as absorption, failed. Dressed in drab robe, they carry a stave that can absorb and kill. Unlike most Betans, the lawgiver can initate a conversation with Landru via the process of communing. When Kirk disabled the computer Landru, the Lawgiver became confused. The Return of the Archons (TOS).
Lazarus – He pursued anti-Lazarus across space and time, eventually arriving in 2267, where their conflict created vast cosmic effects that drew the attention of Starfleet. Assigned to investigate, Captain Kirk and the USS Enterprise confronted Lazarus several times, attempting to learn the truth. Lazarus referred to his counterpart as a “beast” and claimed he had destroyed Lazarus’ entire civilization. Kirk and Spock soon realized there were two versions of Lazarus. In a final confrontation, Kirk was accidentally transported to the antimatter universe, where anti-Lazarus revealed the whole story. He confirmed that if Lazarus succeeded in crossing over to the antimatter universe, and there confronted anti-Lazarus, the result would be the destruction of both universes. Together, Kirk and anti-Lazarus forced Lazarus into the negative magnetic corridor that connected the two universes. Kirk then destroyed Lazarus’ spaceship, which also destroyed anti-Lazarus’ ship, sealing the corridor, saving the universes – and trapping both versions of Lazarus together for the rest of time. The Alternative Factor (TOS).
Lazarus, Anti – the other version of Lazarus because Kirk and Spock find out that there are actually two versions of Lazarus. To determine which is which (because one is good and the other is bad), it’s easiest to read the information above.

Lore – played by Brent Spiner who is the evil twin brother of Data. Brent Spiner was such a talented actor on Star Trek.
Lutan – The Civil Leader of the Ligonians on planet Ligon II.

Lutan was eventually demoted to Second One after his aid, Hagon, was chosen by Yareena as her new First One. Code of Honor (TNG).
M-113 Creature – The woman McCoy sees as Nancy Crater is a shape-shifting creature, the last survivor of M-113, and can literally appear as a different being to each person ‘she’ meets. By reaching into their minds and drawing on their memories, the creature can lull her potential victims into a false sense of security before she kills them. The Man Trap (TOS).

Marcus, Carol – Daughter of Admiral Alexander Marcus, Inventor of the Genesis Device, mother of Kirk’s only known son. The Wrath of Kahn (TOS) and Star Trek into Darkness (the New Star Trek) . Favorite movie: Star Trek into Darkness because she was instrumental in taking care of Kahn’s men that were in their pods and I liked it built a relationship between her and Kirk and why Spock was trying to figure out why she was on board the Enterprise when they already had a science officer.
Marcus, David – Kirk’s son from The Wrath of Kahn and The Search for Spock. From Carol Marcus
McCoy, Leonard – Chief Medical Officer of the USS Enterprise under James T. Kirk. Nearly all of the Star Trek films, Spock, McCoy, and Kirk are the three main characters.
Lt. McGivers, Maria – When Khan pursued her, McGivers was surprised and shocked by his bullying manner, but also deeply flattered. Khan demanded absolute loyalty from her; desperately afraid of losing him, she promised to do anything he asked – including helping him in his attempts to seize the Enterprise. Fortunately, McGivers was uncomfortable with Khan’s murderous plans; she turned against him for long enough to prevent Captain Kirk’s death and to help retake the ship. But it was too late to save her career. When Kirk banished Khan and his followers to Ceti Alpha V, Lt. McGivers opted to accompany them rather than face a court-martial. Khan was pleased by her choice and dubbed her “a superior woman.” Space Seed (TOS).
Melancon – Captain Kirk and Spock watch a female Nazi officer called Daras receive a medal of honor, and learn that the planet is committed to the death of Zeon. The broadcast ends with a salute to the Fuhrer — John Gill. They find out later that Melankon is actually the one in charge. Spock performs a mind probe on Gill, which brings him to consciousness. Gill tells them he used the example of Nazi Germany to bring order to Ekos. It worked at first, but then Melankon seized control, and drugged Gill to use him as a figurehead, and started a war with Zeon. With another, potentially fatal dose of stimulant, Kirk keeps Gill conscious so he can make another broadcast from the booth. Gill announces that he has recalled the fleet and that the war must stop; he also tells the people that Melankon is a traitor. Melankon opens fire on the booth, and Isak shoots him. Gill is fatally wounded, but before he dies, he tells Kirk he was wrong to break the Prime Directive. But now he hopes the damage has been undone, and the Ekosians and Zeons will now work together.

They are captured, along with the landing party, and taken to the city which looks very much like Earth’s ancient Rome. They find that Captain R.M. Merrick of the Beagle has betrayed his crew, beaming them down to fight in the Roman-like gladiatorial games. Merik is First Citizen of the Empire and supposed close friend to the Proconsul, Claudius Marcus. Kirk realizes, however, that Merrick is being used as a lure to get more starship crews to 892-IV for the entertainment of its inhabitants. When Kirk refuses to beam his crew down to die in the arena, Spock and McCoy are condemned to fight gladiators in the ring. The bout is being televised for the planet’s enjoyment, but Scotty cuts off the planet’s energy supply, spoiling their pleasure. When Kirk uses the confusion to free Spock and McCoy, Merrick sees how a true starship captain acts in the face of danger and uses his communicator to have Kirk, Spock and McCoy beamed aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. For his treachery, Merrick is killed by the Proconsul. Uhura, who has been monitoring the radio waves of the planet, realizes that the “sun worshipers” aren’t talking about the sun in the sky, but of the “Son of God.” Bread and Circuses (TOS).

Dagger of the Mind (TOS).
Nona – Captain Kirk leads a survey mission to a peaceful, primitive planet which he visited 13 years before as a lieutenant. He is dismayed to see a group of villagers armed with flintlocks, weapons they shouldn’t have at their current stage of development. The villagers ambush the landing party and wound Spock. Returning to the U.S.S. Enterprise, Spock is put under the care of Dr. M’Benga, who once interned in a Vulcan ward. M’Benga tells McCoy they’ve done all they can for Spock, and that he has to recover on his own. Meanwhile, a Klingon vessel is detected in orbit around the planet, and Kirk orders Chekov to keep the Enterprise out of sensor range while he returns to the surface. He’ll be looking for Tyree, the tribal leader he befriended years earlier. Minutes after Kirk and McCoy beam down in native clothing, they are attacked by a mugato, a white apelike creature with poisonous fangs, who bites Kirk before McCoy can kill it with a phaser. They can’t return to the Enterprise, so Kirk tells McCoy that Tyree’s people have a cure for the mugato poison. Some hill people find Kirk and McCoy and take them to their caves, informing them that Tyree is now their leader, and his wife, Nona, knows how to help Kirk. But Tyree and Nona are currently on a scouting mission. Nona is using drugs to keep Tyree devoted to her, and she urges him to acquire “firesticks” for their people, but being a devoted pacifist, he refuses. Informed about Kirk, Nona heads back to the caves, where she sees McCoy using his phaser to heat some rocks. Nona is intrigued, and wants to know more about their guests. Nona treats Kirk by cutting her hand and pressing a mahko root against Kirk’s wound. She collapses but Kirk recovers. Now, according to legend, Kirk will be unable to refuse Nona anything. Meanwhile, on the Enterprise, Dr. M’Benga has informed Nurse Chapel that Spock is in a state of self-induced hypnosis to heal his own injuries. When Spock’s readings fluctuate, M’Benga is pleased, and tells Chapel that if Spock regains consciousness she is to do whatever the Vulcan asks.
Tyree tells Kirk and McCoy that the firesticks first appeared nearly a year ago, but assumes the villagers have been making them — he hasn’t seen any strangers. Kirk asks him to take them to the village under cover of dark. Nona joins them and implores Kirk to help make Tyree a powerful man, but the captain says he will not interfere. Tyree leads Kirk and McCoy into the village, where they find a forge containing clear evidence that Klingons are involved. They watch in hiding as the villager’s leader, Apella, enters with a Klingon. Kirk and McCoy overpower them, take a flintlock and escape with Tyree’s help. Spock regains partial consciousness and demands that Chapel strike him. She does so hesitantly at first, but at Spock’s insistence she slaps him harder and harder, until Scotty walks in and stops her, not knowing he’s endangering Spock by doing this. M’Benga finds out what’s happening, rushes over and slaps Spock violently until he is fully conscious. Spock thanks him for bringing him out of his hypnotic state. On the planet, Kirk teaches Tyree and his people how to fire the stolen flintlock. McCoy points out that he is corrupting the hill people’s society, but Kirk replies that the Klingons left them no choice — in order to bring equity back between the hill people and the villagers, he has to provide equal weapons. McCoy is horrified, but has no alternative solution. Realizing Tyree is hesitant to arm his people, Kirk hopes that Nona can convince her husband to fight. When he approaches her, she uses the same drug on him that she used to seduce Tyree. Kirk falls under her spell. Tyree sees what’s happening and aims the flintlock at his wife, but he cannot bring himself to shoot. He throws the weapon away in disgust and walks off. Suddenly, a mugato attacks Kirk and Nona. After a struggle, Kirk is forced to destroy the creature with his phaser. Seeing her opportunity, Nona knocks Kirk out and takes the phaser. Tyree and McCoy find Kirk and revive him, while Nona runs into a patrol of villagers and offers them victory by using Kirk’s phaser. But the villagers attack and kill her. Tyree and Kirk rush in and overpower the villagers. When Tyree learns that Nona is dead he takes up the rifle and tells Kirk he needs more weapons. McCoy retrieves Kirk’s phaser, and Spock contacts them from the ship. Kirk orders Scotty to manufacture a hundred flintlocks — they are making serpents for the Garden of Eden. A Private Little War.

The Stratos-dwellers insist that the Troglytes are naturally inferior beings, but Kirk discovers that the Troglytes are being affected by a gas emitted during mining. Unable to get both sides to settle their differences, Kirk traps the Troglyte leader Vanna and the High Advisor of Ardana’s Ruling Council, Plasus, inside a mine.

Shelby – Starfleet lieutenant commander assigned to the Enterprise-D to provide assistance against the Borg. Field-promoted to commander and first officer when Picard was assimilated.
