It's unfortunate that Leslie Parrish didn't go to lunch in the Desilu commissary in full costume the way Sherry Jackson did earlier in the series. wink

Or Mariette Hartley or Diana Ewing or Nancy Kovack.....smile

After revisiting this thread... no question.

Marianna Hill, for the win. Hottest TOS girl ever (IMO.) Her slight overbite reminds me a bit of the young Geena Davis.

Close runner-up: Barbara Bouchet.

They didn't come better on classic Trek than Mariette Hartley's Zarabeth, as far as I'm concerned.

Agreed 101%

Glad we could put aside Ellison discussion for agreement on more important things! smile



(Caps can now be bigger than when this thread started!)

Given the holiday we just observed, I can say that this topic is one more thing that I can be thankful for!

This, the original "Yum" thread.

Very close runner-up, to me (always thought Mariette Hartley was beautiful, and I love her voice.)

Well, for pure "I'd marry her in a minute" yum, I'm in the Marianna Hill camp.

To hark back to a post Eric made long ago on this thread, while it was a tour de force and a terrific episode, I remember watching in syndication and being deeply disappointed at Joan Collins' episode. After she had such an incredible costume on Batman, I thought to myself, 'imagine what she'll look like on Trek!' Of course, I didn't know what kind of an ep it was until I saw it.
I'll admit, I would have liked to have seen Joan in Marj Dusay's costume!! smile

Joan could probably have made the line, "Brain, brain, what is brain?!" sound better too. smile

HA!! I'm sure she could have. She also could have been quite convincing when zapping the entire Enterprise to sleep. . .

To this day, I don't think anyone knows the name of the woman used to play Isis for that last scene. OTOH, the reference guides say Barbara Babcock did all the vocal purring FX, but that clearly isn't Barbara they used in person.

Mystery solved. She was born Victoria Vetri. As "Angela Dorian" she was Miss September 1967 in Playboy and 1968's Playmate of the Year. Along with her Star Trek appearance, she was on Batman as Florence of Arabia in a King Tut episode.

Fooled me completely, and I remember her well from both "Batman" and her "Man From UNCLE" episode where she has been profiled in the Yum thread for that show. But I guess utilizing this MFU cap where she also had a dark wig, I guess that makes it easier to see the resemblance!

I just found out that Phyllis Douglas from "The Galileo Seven" also played a hippie in "The Way to Eden."

Andrea from "What are Little Girls Made Of?"


Hell to the yes! She's always the first one that comes to mind. Her and Marta (Yvonne Craig) from "Whom Gods Destroy".

I just found out that Naomi Pollack played an Indian in "The Paradise Syndrome" and Lt. Rahda (apparently the other kind of Indian) in "That Which Survives."

Wow! It's great to see the original "yum" thread bumped--and in HD glory, too! I've seen Barbara Babcock in so many shows from the 1960s-'70s but I'd forgotten she'd been on Star Trek. She made quite an impression on me as "nun" in The Mission: Impossible episode "The Cardinal."

Barbara of course was the rare case of a *two* time Trek beauty!



And then after getting mostly thankless guest starring roles in the 70s that didn't even come close to showing the allure she demonstrated on Trek, she got to shine again on "Hill Street Blues".
