Star Trek related NPCs in WoW

Being an avid Trekkie it was inevitable that I would run across all the NPCs which are Star Trek related!  Here are the ones I’ve found so far:

Jhodry Lapforge (Geordi Laforge) is the Engineer in Star Trek: TNG.  He even has the goggles and a yellow engineering uniform!

 Chief Engineer Trep (Charles “Trip” Tucker) is the Engineer in Star Trek: Enterprise.
Smiles O’Byron (Miles “Chief” O’Brien) from Star Trek: TNG and also Star Trek: DS9 has got his yellow Engineering uniform on!  The Smiles is the reference to the alternate Sisko who used to call O’Brien “Smiley”.
Nogg is likely the Ferengi from Star Trek: DS9 – the first Ferengi to join Starfleet.  He helps out in Engineering, and he even has his own workshop here in the Drag, Orgrimmar.
Scooty (Montgomery “Scotty” Scott) is the Chief Engineer for Star Trek: TOG.  He’s here in Stranglethorn ready to transport you to Gnomeregan.
 
Sprok is obviously Spock.  I like how he has Away Team as his title.  He is on the other end of the teleporter after Scooty sends you to Gnomeregan.  Interestingly he is wearing a red uniform… does this mean he is going to die?
 

Now here’s something that is not related to Engineering for once!  These guys are walking around in Exodar as a pack – do you recognise their names?  You’re forgiven if you don’t, as they themselves weren’t big stars in the series – the famous ones from Star Trek are Ezri and Judzea… did you get it yet?  YES, these are all of Dax’s previous hosts (Tobin, Audrid, Emony, Curzon, Torias).

Joran, Verad and Yedrin are all hosts of Dax’s that were not official hosts (ie psychopaths, rejected hosts/symbiote kidnappers, alternate timeline).  All are found in Swamp of Sorrows.

Ok, a multi reference toon here!  Data, the android from Star Trek: TNG, has an evil twin brother, Lore.  Datalore here even wears a yellow coloured top and black pants, like Data does in Star Trek.  Now, from the movie The Goonies, there is a character, Data, who is the same actor who played Short Round in the Indiana Jones movie, Temple of Doom.  Short Round = Small Sphere.  Get it??  Obscure much??  Haha.Lenny “Fingers” McCoy is probably a reference to Leonard “Bones” McCoy, the doctor from Star Trek: TOS.  Should have made him a medic or First aid trainer or something.
