Star Trek vs. Batman (Trivia Answer)

Trivia Question from Yesterday:

There were a number of notable actors who gave their voice talents to Batman: The Animated Series including at least 7 from the Star Trek films and movies. Can you name them all? Hint: As far as I know TOS, TNG, DS9 and VOY are represented as well as at least two actors from the movies.

Answer:

The Riddler (voiced by John Glover)

13

Played Verad Dax in DS9’s “Invasive Procedures”

Leslie Thompkins (voiced by Diana Muldaur)

She’s actually been in two Star Trek series TOS and TNG. Her TOS episodes were “Return To Tomorrow” and more notably “Is There in Truth No Beauty?”

But she’s probably best known (if not best loved) for her role as Dr. Katherine Pulaski on Season 2 of The Next Generation. Personally I like her McCoy-like personality in the TNG-verse and think she’s underrated.

Red Claw (voiced by Kate Mulgrew). This one I didn’t know till I saw it on the Wikipedia page for Batman.

Even before she was the first female Captain in a Star Trek show, Kathryn Janeway was a tough lady.

And now she’s Red again (in Orange is the New Black).

How colorful.

Ra’s al Ghul (voiced by David Warner)

Portrayed Chancellor Gorkon in my favorite Star Trek movie “The Undiscovered Country”.

As well as Gul Madred in the two-part TNG episode “Chain of Command”. There are four lights!

Also he played an ambassador in Star Trek V, but that’s best forgotten.

Mr. Freeze (voiced by Michael Ansara)

Freeze

Portrayed Kang in TOS and DS9.

And all the time on DS9 as Constable Odo.

Never looks very happy.

Can you name any more that I’ve missed?
