Wow, I didn't catch Neelix there!

As long I don't recognize the same actor, great. (fairly easy with alien switches) But when it's obviously the same one, the brain has to go through that little readjustment dance. Which is why it took me the whole first season of ENT to get over Jonathan Archer being "that guy from Quantum Leap".

My 9 yr old and I love Acquisition. The Ferengi are kind of like a subtle 3 Stooges...if there is such a thing!

Ethan Philips also appeared in First Contact as the nightclub manager in Picard's Dixon Hill holosuite adventure, as well as a lieutenant on the web episode "Of Gods and Men"

Majel Barret as Nurse Chapel, Lwaxana Troi and Number 1 and of course, the voice of the computers in Starfleet.

James Doohan could also fall into this category. Although he didn't appear as other characters, he has done voices, such as Nomad, the Rock Creature and other computer voices. Not sure how many characters he's voiced but he's done alot on TAS as well.

But I do believe Vaughn Armstrong does hold the record for the most appearances on Star Trek in disguise.

Klingons:
Commander Korris (Star Trek: The Next Generation episode Heart of Glory)
Korath (Star Trek: Voyager episode "Endgame", also appearing in Star Trek: The Experience)
Klaax (Star Trek: Enterprise episode "Sleeping Dogs")
Cardassians:
Gul Danar (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Past Prologue")
Seskal (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episodes "When It Rains..." and "The Dogs of War")
Romulan:
Telek R'Mor (Star Trek: Voyager episode "Eye of the Needle")
Borg:
Lansor/Two of Nine (Star Trek: Voyager episode "Survival Instinct")
Vidiian:
Vidiian Captain (Star Trek: Voyager episode "Fury")
Human:
Admiral Forrest (recurring role on Star Trek: Enterprise)
Captain Maximilian Forrest (Mirror Universe version of Admiral Forrest)
Hirogen:
Hirogen-Alpha (Star Trek: Voyager episode "Flesh and Blood")
Kreetassan:
Kreetassan Captain (Star Trek: Enterprise episodes "Vox Sola" and "A Night in Sickbay")

Agreed. I thought the Ferengi episode of Enterprise was very well handled, actually - it was suitably tongue-in-cheek, canon was not violated, and our Ferengi chums were portrayed very similarly with how we'd see them later on the other shows. Ethan Philips & Jeffrey Combs did a fantastic job on that episode.

Don't forget about Clint Howard, he was in Acquisition and TOS Carbomite Maneuver! I like seeing guest stars featured as different characters and aliens, it really adds to the show.

Nice job on the research! Mr. Armstrong must hold the record for most characters played!

And FOR the record, I love seeing actors portray other characters not only in the same series but in different ones as well!

I just think it would have been cool to see main characters portray different characters....and I'm not talking about Frakes playing Tom Riker in DS9. I mean like LeVar Burton playing a Vidiian in VOY, or Robert Beltran playing an Adorian in ENT. THAT would have been cool to see!
