Was catching up on Star Trek: The Next Generation episodes today and discovered Melinda Culea (aka Amy Allen) in an episode from Season 5. She played "the main alien" in the episode and was a love interest for Riker. She also hailed from an androgynous race, so her appearance was slightly... altered. ;)

I remember watching this episode as a kid and realizing it was "Amy". Not my favorite TNG episode but it was fun to see her in it!

Yeah, that episode blatantly presented its social agenda, but I liked watching her play a very different role.

Are you a TNG fan too? Awesome! I first got into TNG by watching the episodes with Dwight Schultz as Barclay. Of all the Star Trek series I've seen, TNG is still my favorite.

Never seen this before, but I also like to see actors in different roles.

Yes! Love TNG - it's my favorite ST series, too!

There were a few guest stars that appeared on both TNG and TAT. Watch Devil's Due and see if you can guess who "Ardra" played in an A-Team episode. :D

Yes, there is a lot of overlap of guest stars between the two shows. I like trying to remember which A-Team episode I saw the actor in. That being said, I've seen Devil's Due a while back, and I don't remember recognizing the actress. I guess that means I'll have to watch it again. ;)

It's one of my favorites but I have a lot of those.

I had to look up the episode titles but I remember the characters - for a really hard one, the female scientist in Suspicions also played the female Captain in Yesterday's Enterprise and she was a memorable character on TAT.

I love trying to place actors in different things I've seen, too. Maybe a little too much. :))

Ooh, I have an advantage on this one. Yesterday's Enterprise was memorable for me partly because I recognized the Captain from the A-Team. Actually, now that I think about it, she was a captain on there too.

Hannibal: You must have been a Captain. You'll forgive me if I don't salute.
Face: He's a Colonel.

I haven't watched any A-Team for several months at least, but I've seen that episode enough times to have it practically memorized. :D

Oh, you're talking about the doctor that patched up BA in Bad Rock.

However, for those of us non-star trek fans, TAT? Was ist das?

I have learned that TAT = The A-Team.

TNG, as you may know, = The Next Generation.

So let it be written; so let it be done.

Ah yes ... Maggie Sullivan. I loved her on TAT :D
