    I meant outside of ST II,
    I'm talking about the Pagemaster, with Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Stewart and Leonard Nimoy. Also Frank Welker, known to Transfans everywhere as Megatron. Who later became Galvatron(who was voice by Leonard Nimoy) And Galvatron was created by Unicron, who was voiced by Orson Wells. And I just know this stuff off the top of my head. You'd think I'd have to go to some movie site to find that stuff out, but nope, I know my Transformers. Scary huh?

    Heck, Frank Welker is nearly the voice of every animal in either cartoons or live action films. I remember being surprised to find out he was the voice of the calf in City Slickers. I tend to think of him as Furrball, Gogo Dodo, Ralph the Guard, Thaddeus Plotz, Runt, Buttons, Slimer, and Chicken Boo, among many, many others. The guy is truly amazing.

    I just looked at his filmography at IMDB. He even did Spock's scream in Star Trek III.

    Oh, and a question was brought up regarding whether you can link THROUGH a SW film. I gave this some thought, and although at first I was tempted to allow that, b/c after all some of the actors are not in all of the films, or even all of the original trilogy, but I think that defeats the goal of the game. So my answer to that is a BIG NO. The goal is to link NON-SW actors to SW. Allowing you to get points for linking them through more than one actor was just to make this a little more competitive and have a lot more possible solutions.

    Good question though.
