This is the bottom half list of guest actors in Star Trek roles other than what they were famous for. It includes everyone appearing in the different series, in no particular order.
Before he was Zephram Cochrane in Star Trek: First Contact, James Cromwell guest starred in The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. In the episode "Birthright I & II", he was the most unrecognizable as a Yridian.
Gwynyth Walsh's Lursa made it to the big screen in Star Trek: Generations. After her long stint as a Duras Sister, she was a member of a telepathic race in Voyager's "Random Thoughts". I can't help but notice that parts of her uniform appeared in previous episodes as well.
You all knew him as Kang. After playing the Klingon, Michael Ansara was Lwaxana's husband. Their marriage was annulled, when Odo took Lwaxana as wife so she may keep their unborn son in "The Muse".
Scott MacDonald actually started acting in television in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Before he was Tosk in Deep Space Nine and the Xindi Reptilian Dolim in Enterprise, his first role was a Romulan in "Face of the Enemy". To see what he really looks like, watch Voyager's "Caretaker". He was on the bridge.
I have more, but these are the more notable of characters.

This was the original sketch for the design I submitted for the logo contest years ago. It was drawn on a piece of scrap during my commute to work. That is why I keep paper in my pockets. I see now the finished product kept a lot of the same elements on the pineapple.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betta_splendens#Colors As I understand it, iridescence occurs naturally. Only black and red are pigments. The best way to see the refraction is by shining a flashlight on the red betta.

After Walt Disney Animation Toronto closed, I took over as Design Coordinator for a former colleague. This was my first production job, so I was naturally very green. Not long into this contract, I had a previous obligation to another job. Regrettably, I had to quit before the end of the project.

This is the one. Shutter speed 1/15. ISO 100. It has been so hot lately, there is nothing like being in the basement, perched in front of the aquarium. Wished I could have used a tripod for this, but I have to hold the camera close to achieve the details on the eyes and fins.

This is a scratch model of a seated figure in a dollhouse chair. The purpose of which will be for scale as I work out the design for the next version of paper cut man and woman. This was measured specifically for the little chair. The body was cut out as one piece and the head is a standard cylinder.
