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!!
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!
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."
