Recently, an odd little fact bubbled up out of my subconscious, and I thought I’d inflict it on you fine folks in the from of a trivia challenge.
What long-running sitcom from the 80’s and 90’s featured actors playing recurring roles (one four times, another 14 times) who have also, during their careers, portrayed the captain of the Enterprise? For bonus points, name the actors and the roles they played on the sitcom, as well as the series on which they each played the captain.
For a hint, see the extended entry.
Update: utprrthd nailed it. Who said anything about Star Trek?
This sitcom, over its run, won quite a few Emmies — which, as you all know, is a Major Award.
