Submission + - Leslie Nielsen's Bold Trek to a Forbidden World (

astroengine writes: "Long before Star Trek’s captain Kirk, there was Commander J.J. Adams of United Planet cruiser C57D who dared to visit the Forbidden Planet. Adams, played by a 30-year old Lesley Nielsen who passed away on Nov. 28, explored a deserted planet (save a powerful machine that wiped out their creators), a storyline that was picked up by Gene Roddenberry, underpinning a pilot episode for Star Trek."
