Star Trek alumni will appear in several NBC pilots this fall, the network revealed yesterday in announcing its 2004-5 lineup.
According to The Futon Critic, Neal McDonough (Lt. Hawk, Star Trek: First Contact) will star on Medical Investigation, based on true stories from the National Institute of Health involving life or death emergency situations that require travel to wherever their patients may be.
The show will air from 10-11 p.m. on Friday nights.
John Rhys-Davies (Leonardo da Vinci, Star Trek: Voyager) is featured in the eight-installment Revelations, according to Film Stew. The limited series tells the story of a group of people trying to postpone the effects of prophesies from the Book of Revelations.
Revelations will air on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. during weeks when West Wing is not broadcast.
In a separate article on NBC's longform projects, The Futon Critic revealed that comedians Jason Alexander (Kurros, Star Trek: Voyager) and Kelsey Grammar (Morgan Bateson, Star Trek: The Next Generation) would appear in a two-hour musical version of A Christmas Carol planned for the holiday season.
Grammer will play Scrooge, while Alexander will play Marley.
The WB and ABC were expected to announce their fall schedules today, possibly including more former Star Trek actors. The Futon Critic will list their lineups.
