Maybe Pooka, but I'd lay money that yer man appeared in one episode and I'm fairly sure it was the one I mentioned. He strolls around looking - well - big and bald but conceals a trick that he has the ability to mimic voices. So when two teams of four, good and evil, with both Kirk and Spock on the good side, are fighting to the death in some perverse version of Gladiators, his little skill lures others to their deaths.
There must be a proper trekkie posting here who can verify all this.
Happy to oblige.....
Ted Cassidy appeared a couple of time in the original Star Trek series. The episone where he could mimic his voice was "What are Little Girls Made of" (apparently still a question blokes are trying to fathom!). He was an android, who although subsevient, was really in control. He did "appear" in a couple of other shows, but not in any prominiet part. Not mentioned, but he used to play Lurch in the 60s Addams Family.
