Star Trek: Enterprise

Episode: ENT 020 - Oasis

Yes, it’s true: the host of ABC’s hit Dancing With the Stars and other competition series indulged his even longer Star Trek affection to appear as alien trader D’Marr in the Enterprise episode “Oasis.” What’s more, the celeb Trekkie even appeared uncredited as a Coridan ambassador at the conference seen in that series’ “Demons.”

Born in 1955 in Haverhill, Mass., Bergeron has also hosted American’s Funniest Home Videos on ABC since 2001, and hosted quiz show Hollywood Squares in its second incarnation in 1998-2004—a run which netted him four daytime Emmy nominations and one win. He has also authored I’m Hosting As Fast As I Can, appeared in TV’s Castle and The Nanny, and has remained active with the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
