Jonathan Frakes – Commander William Riker (TNG)

Riker finally got to be a Captain before he bowed out of the 'Star Trek’ universe at the end of 'Star Trek: Nemesis’ in 2002, but he swiftly swapped the captain’s chair for the director’s chair. Having already helmed Trek movies including 'First Contact’ and 'Insurrection’, Frakes was the unlikely director behind 2004’s 'Thunderbirds’ movie. These days he balances acting gigs with directing TV episodes on series like 'Castle’, 'Falling Skies’ and 'NCIS’, and he can be heard voicing Star-Lord’s father in the 'Guardians Of The Galaxy’ TV animation.

We know what Shatner, Stewart and the like are up to these days, but what about those other valuable Starfleet officers that entertained us so? Where are the crew members of ‘Star Trek’ now?
