I'll contribute John Rhys-Davies, one of my favorite actors, who played holographic Leonardo DaVinci a couple of times on Voyager. Possibly most famous for Gimli the dwarf and Treebeard the Ent in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Sallah in the Indiana Jones trilogy, and Professor Arturo of Sliders on television.
Merritt Butrick not only played the role as Kirk's son in ST2 and ST3, but also in the TNG episode "Symbiosis" but (imo) is best known for his "totally" awesome role in the 80s TV show Square Pegs - a personal favorite
Interestingly, Judson Scott was also in "Symbiosis" after his role in ST2. This guy has been in A LOT of places and typically in a villainous role, From Walker: Texas Ranger to X-Files and even a part in Babylon 5.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the very obvious cameo role. At least, his role was a cameo before his superior officer got herself killed by a sapient oil slick.....
Michael Dorn - who was best known as Officer Jebediah Turner on the T.V. show Chips from 1979 - 1982. He also played the role of Klingon Defense Attorney in the 1991 movie: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
