William Shatner has remained a cultural icon since he first appeared in the Star Trek franchise as the legendary Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise back in 1966. Shatner has played the lead role of Captain Kirk throughout the TV series run in the 1960’s and in the first 7 feature films spanning from 1979 (Star Trek the movie) to 1994 (Star Trek: Generations).
Though notably known as Captain Kirk, Shatner has an impressive professional career as an actor on hit TV shows such as T. J. Hooker (1982–86), he hosted the reality-based television series, Rescue 911 (1989–96), which won a People’s Choice Award for the Favorite New TV Dramatic Series. He later starred as attorney Denny Crane in the final season of the legal drama The Practice and its spinoff series Boston Legal, a role that earned him two Emmy Awards.
Shatner’s love for Star Trek and sci-fi never faded as he has written a series of books chronicling his experiences playing Captain Kirk and being a part of Star Trek, and has co-written several novels set in the Star Trek universe. He has written a series of science fiction novels called TekWar which were adapted for television.
Seth Gilliam has seen much success on television with his portrayals of Ellis Carver on The Wire and Clayton Hughes on Oz.

Emma Caulfield is widely known as the Anya the demon turned mortal on the hit TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Caulfield’s role originally started out as a guest, demon-of-the-week, appearance in a December 1998 episode. She was called back for a few more guest spots for plot reasons, which is when Joss Whedon, the creator of Buffy, realized her talent. She appeared in most of the episodes the following season, and after that, was promoted to a full time series regular. Caulfield’s humor and levity was a favorite among critics and added a comedic dimension to the show, which made its final bow in May 2003.
Prior to her role in Buffy many fans will also recognized Emma from her re-occurring role on Beverly Hills 902010 where she appeared as a love interest to Brandon Walsh (played by Jason Priestly) on 30 episodes. She also starred in General Hospital for 39 episodes as character Lorraine Miller.
