All right, I got done with the second season. Because my planning is fucked up, I now start on the first season.
Note:  Just came across a site called Memory Alpha, a wiki devoted to Star Trek. Good design and a lot of info, though the material below is all from regular Wikipedia.

“Charlie X”: Robert Walker Jr. was the son of Jennifer Jones. She left his father for David O. Selznick when Walker was three or so, and a year later she won Best Actress for Song of Bernadette. … The character actor Abraham Sofaer’s wife was named Psyche Angela Christian. 

“Where No Man Has Gone Before,” the second pilot … Gary Lockwood did a 1968 caper film called They Came to Rob Las Vegas. In 1978 he did a made-for-tv movie called The Incredible Journey of Dr. Meg Laurel. … Sally Kellerman. She wound up as Rodney Dangerfield’s love interest in Back to School (1986). Yikes. … Paul Carr “toured in summer stock with Chico Marx.” His character dies in “Where No Man,” and Wiki says that more or less makes him the first dead redshirt, though none of the uniforms in the episode were actually red. … Paul Fix played the ship doctor but was replaced for the rest of the series by DeForest Kelley. In 1972 the two of them wound up in the same lousy, career-nadir horror film, Night of the Lepus, which was about “giant mutant rabbits” in the Southwest.
“The Naked Time.” There’ an episode of Trapper John, M.D. called “Old Man Liver” and it was written by a bit player in this episode. … The guy who played Amorous Crewman voiced a role in Akira.
“Balance of Terror.” Back in 1932, RKO did a movie called Secrets of the French Police.
