With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“Here I am a million miles away from home” August 11, 2017


How many Trekkies are there among my readers? How many of you are music lovers?. If you are a Trekkie and you love music you probably know this already, but a number of pop and rock stars have made appearances on Star Trek at some time. If you know of any that I have missed from this post please let me know. Iggy Pop played the Vorta overseer working for the Dominion in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode The Magnificent Ferengi.

Tom Morello off of Rage Against The Machine played  Son’a Officer / Crewman Mitchell in the 1998 movie Insurrection, and later in the Voyager episode Good Shepherd respectively.

Jane Wiedlin off of 80s girl band the Go-Go’s, played Trillya in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

One time Miss America and later very successful singer and actress Vanessa Williams played Arandis in the 1996 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode Let He Who Is Without Sin…

David Soul played Makora in the Original Series episode The Apple in 1967, which was only his third television role and before his big break in Starsky and Hutch.

Fleetwood Mac’s drummer and huge Star Trek fan, appeared as the Antedian Dignitary in the The New Generation episode Manhunt. You could be forgiven for not recognising him in it though!

The Rumours are true, Mick Fleetwood is an alien

 

“We’ll see the city’s ripped backsides” February 18, 2013


iggy-popUSE

If I was to ask you the question what do Mick Fleetwood (off of Fleetwood Mac), David Soul and Iggy Pop have in common what would you say? personally I would have said nothing apart from maybe appearing in the charts at the same time. But the thing they have in common has nothing to do with music. Have you made your guess yet?

Mick-Fleetwood

The answer is that they have all appeared in an episode of Star Trek. David Soul appeared in an episode called ‘The Apple’ from series two of the original TV show. Iggy Pop appeared as a character called Yelgrun in a Star Trek: deep Space Nine episode called ‘The Magnificent Ferengi‘. Mick Fleetwood was a guest alien in a Star Trek: The Next Generation called ‘Manhunt’. Have any other rock and pop stars appeared in the show? I’d like to hear of any more that you might be aware of.
