‘Star Trek’ Mystery Solved – Isis Actress From “Assignment: Earth” Identified

Star Trek fans did some clever detective work and found the identity of a lost actress on the original series: A contortionist(!) named April Tatro played the female form of a shapeshifting cat on “Assignment: Earth.” That was the episode where Kirk and the Enterprise go back to 1968 Earth and run into a superhuman alien named Gary Seven.

The co-star on that episode: Teri Garr, who later starred in “Young Frankenstein,” “Mr, Mom,” “Tootsie,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and a whole lot more.

And William Shatner totally hit on Tatro.
