* The king of hams is [[WilliamShatner Captain Kirk]] himself. He's pretty much the biggest ham in the galaxy, notably as Captain James Tiberius Kirk. Most famously... he often... talked like... this... while making... strange... hand gestures. And he's only gotten hammier as he's aged. However, to anyone who criticizes his acting, this is actually how William Shatner talks in RealLife.

* In her short acting career, Alice Rawlings got to overact ''opposite William Shatner''. She played a young girl who blamed Kirk for her father's (supposed) death and expressed it in her own subtle way: "YOU MURDERER!!! YOU MURDERER!!!"
* A Klingon in ''The Trouble with Tribbles'' says the Enterprise should be hauled away '''AS''' garbage, complete with EvilLaugh, in a way so hammy that it leaves Scotty with no choice but to respond with physical force.

* Majel Barrett as Lwaxana Troi.

** Speaking of Cardassians, Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine (specifically, the episode ''[[http://memory-alpha.org/wiki/Duet_%28episode%29 Duet]]'')was the series that introduced us to the so-called "Long Cardassian Monologue", a tendency of Cardassians to go on long hamtacular rants about various and sundry things. That's right. The Cardy's are so hammy that hamminess is encoded right into their genes.

** And if we're gonna talk about the Cardys being hammy, you gotta talk about Garak, ''Deep Space Nine's'' resident MagnificentBastard and ConsummateLiar. The man practically talks like a comic book supervillain in casual conversation. But he's not a villain; [[AlmightyJanitor he's just a mild-mannered tailor.]]

\n* The episode [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS4E13DevilsDue "Devil's Due"]] gives us Ardra, who is TheDevil as far as the people of Ventax II are concerned. As soon as she materializes on the planet, she's a tour-de-force of {{Camp}}, just relishing every moment of antagonizing the good guys and [[AbhorrentAdmirer putting the moves on Picard.]] She's pretty much '''the''' reason to see the episode.
