The Only Planet In Our Solar System That Isn't Named After A Roman Deity Is?

Answer: Tom Morello

Tom Morello, best known as a founding member and lead guitarist of the group Rage Against the Machine, is also a die-hard Star Trek fan. In 1998 he contacted Star Trek producer Rick Berman and asked if he could have a cameo appearance.

Berman, whose son was a big fan of Rage Against the Machine, placed Morello as an uncredited Son’a officer in Star Trek: Insurrection. Morello later went on to appear in the Star Trek: Voyager episode “Good Shepherd”.

Morello later returned the cross-universe cameo favor by giving Voyager actor Garrett Wang a cameo in the Rage Against the Machine music video “Sleep Now in the Fire”.
