Rating: 3/5
Redshirt Status: 0/3/38

Notable Guest Stars:
Renee Jones (Aquiel Uhnari)- I know her best as Lexie Carter on Days of Our Lives. She played the role from 1993 to 2012, and it appears to be her last credit. She has no credits after 2012.
Wayne Grace (Torak) – Grace has done both live action and voice work, including several Star Wars and Star Trek games. He played roles in DS9 and Enterprise.
Reg. E. Cathey (Morag)-
He played Franklin Storm in the more recent reboot of Fantastic Four. Which I still need to see. He also appeared in House of Cards, for which he has received several Emmy nominations. He unfortunately passed away in 2018, with his final performance being the voice of Captain Quaid in Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure.

The Rewatch 198: The Next Phase

Series: Star Trek: TNG
Episode: 5.24 The Next Phase (5/18/1992)
Rating: 5/5
Redshirt Status: 0/1/35

Notable Guest Stars:
Thomas Kopache (Mirok)- Kopache has played several roles on various Star Trek series, including TNG, DS9, and ENT . He has also appeared frequently on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, West Wing, Stargate, and the 2020 West Wing Special.
Susanna Thompson (Varel)– She appears in DS9 as Lenora Kahn, Jadzia’s love interest as her most notable Trek role. But she has also appeared on Voyager as the Borg Queen, so I may be wrong about that. I know her more from the series Arrow where she played Moira Queen.
Shelby Leverington (Brossmer)- It was kind of hard to find much on Leverington past 2009. She has been on several daytime Soap Operas, and her last recorded role on IMDB is an appearance on ER during its final season in 2009.
Brian Cousins (Parem) –like Levrington, he appeared on daytime soap operas (a bit later in his career), as well as appearing in several well-known crime investigation shows. He will appear again on TNG in “Descent” which is connected to this episode. He will however be playing a different character.

Series: Star Trek: TNG
Episode: 4.24 The Mind’s Eye (05/27/91)
Rating: 5/5
Redshirt Status: 0/1/34

Notable Guest Stars:
John Fleck (Taibak) Fleck appears in three Star Trek series, including playing a reoccuring role on Star Trek: Enterprise as Silik, a Suliban agent they often come across. He has also performed in Babylon 5, a contemporary of TNG and DS9.  He also is known as being a part of a suit against the National Endowment of the Arts and wining in the Supreme Court.

Larry Dobkin (Kell)- Dobkin was a director, actor, screenwriter, and radio personality.  He originally entered the Star Trek world as a director, filming the episode “Charlie X”.  He has a long list of credits, including getting to play Simon Templer in the earlier TV/Radio productions of The Saint.

Denise Crosby (“voice of Romulan commander”)–  Crosby is back, but this time playing Sela, Tasha’s daughter.  Of course we don’t know that yet, so she is only “The voice of the Romulan Commander” at this time.

Edward Wiley (Vagh)- Wiley will appear once again in Star Trek on DS9 as a Cardassian.  He has several film and television credits, and worked with quite a few other Star Trek Alum
