Outside of the original Star trek, I don't know much about SciFi but I think that woman was the love interest/wife of Kahn in the episode played by Ricardo Montelhbon.

On second thought, I think that woman is Marianna Hill from the episode Dagger of the Mind. In a most interesting piece of trivia, Marianna Hill is the cousin of General H. Norman Schwarzkopf. Since her maiden name was the same as her famous cousin's their father's were obviously brothers. She seemed to play a lot of hot Latinas in old Western series and also played the blonde prostitute in Clint Eastwwood's High Plains Drifter.

I'm going to go with that woman being Marianna Hill. Hopefully, someone will know the eanswer for sure.

HAHA! Yeah, she ws Captain Kirk's old flame on that episode. Captian Kirk had to mantain his professionalism and not give into temptation, which makes me wonder WHAT THE HELL WAS WRONG WITH HIM? LMAO!!!!

Here is a very early promotional picture of her where she played the love interest of Clu Gulager in a recurring role in THe Tall Man. And it was one of her many roles as a hot Latina. She was some great looking woman!

Totally......Didn’t know Julie Newmar and Mariatte Hartly were Star Trek babes too.......Probably a bunch more too!

It was quite a parade of beautiful women guest stars on that show and as a young boy at that time it left quite an impression on me! LOL Sherry Jackson, Joan Collins and Nancy Kovack are just a few more noteables. Julie Newmar was kind of unregcognizable on Star Trek if you are thinking of her Catwoman look. She played a pregnant amazon who was the wife of a medevil warlord of giant warriors. Since she is 6 feet tall she fit right in with this tall tribe. She wore a very loose fitting tent like outfit which was no where near as impressive as her catwoman suit of the same era was. She was also blonde and they really had to dress her down for this particular part........wich is hard to do given Julie Newmar's stellar looks.

Did you know that he is still alive at age 91? And that name has an interesting backstory to it as seen below.

His Cherokee nickname was given to him by his father for the clu-clu birds (known in English as martins,[4] like his middle name) that were nesting at the Gulager home at the time of his birth.

Apparently he is one Okie who actually does have Cherokee ancestory. LOL and if Marianna Hill was hanging on me, you could call me Clu or a lot worse!

I'm not able to post any of my cool pickups due to that thing called "technology" but that does not mean I cannot show off a few cards I picked up in trade this month that my trading partner posted pictures of. I love vintage football and had to trade for some of the cards pictured below.

I traded for the 1964 Philadelphia Ditka, Jurgenson, Lilly and Olsen RC as well as the 1964 Topps Len Dawson. The cards are as nice as they look on the scans too and I was thrilled to get these.

Jeff, that is so interesting about Clu's nickname....you are a walking trivia expert!

I started collecting ttm at age 11 in 1992, and saw Merlin Olsen in the movie Mitchell, starring Joe Don Baker, who I loved as The Whammer in The Natural. I called Merlin's agent, knowing he was a hall of fame football player. I asked about writing to Merlin, to which his agent said "oh geez! Do I still represent him?" The phone was evidently not ringing off the hook for Merlin in 1994, the year I placed that call. In fact, it was June 17th. I remember that so well, since i hung up with his agent, walked out and turned the tv on, and saw another NFL hall of Famer in a white Ford Bronco on the freeway....

Not that I know of, I have not seen much of his stuff at shows or anything, and I don't collect him....I'm sure someone does somewhere, but I think he pretty well trashed his reputation, sadly.

God bless,

People (mostly non card collectors)were buying his cards like crazy when the trial was going on but after that the demnand plumeted . While I don't collect his cards, if I need one for a set, I'll certainly try to pick one up.
