Star Trek: Most Prolific Actor

Having been a Star Trek fan for many years and having watched the shows and films many, many times over, I noticed that a few actors and actresses kept popping up in different make-up, from one series or film, to the next. So, I decided to try and work out which actor/actress had appeared the most. Then I discovered a slight problem; Was I to include stunt doubles, extras and people who added their voices to proceedings or just actors with specific roles? In the end I decided to concentrate on the first 10 movies and the 5 live-action series, coming up with this list:
