    8. Picard's archaeologist lady friend.

    9. ST DS9. This guy brings some strange luck machines on board. Mayhem ensues.

    2. Harcourt Fenton "Harry Mudd" from Star Trek
    3. Cyrano Jones from Star Trek (the "Trouble with Tribbles" ep.)

  3. Hi Claudiu and Hugh,

    Excellent identifications, all the way around! Between the two of you, you eliminated all but three photos from the gallery!

    Outstanding work...

    4. Taybor from SPACE:1999 episode "The Taybor".

    5. Robber from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA episode "The Long Patrol".


  9. SGB:

    Right on the money with #4 and #5, my friend! Well done.


  10. Yet another groovy set of conmen, or conwomen, as the case might be.

    I'm going out on a limb and say the last guy is from Smallville. The WB network logo is a clue (which, interestingly, looks like an armband), and there's a sign behind the same shoulder that looks like it us a sports pennant from Smallville High School.

    Anyway, once again you've made an excellent selection. This would make for another great book for you....LOL

  11. PDXWiz Yep, you nailed it, my friend. That's Trent Ford as Mr. Myzlplx(sp?) in Smallville's episode "Jinx!"

    Excellent job, sir!
