Added DiffLines:

** Notably averted with the addition of John Larroquette to the cast. His most well known television role, that he won four straight Emmy's for, was as a snarky, lecherous, ButtMonkey DA on a zany sitcom, the type of character that would fit right in with the rest of the cast. So, of course, he plays the sober straight man to the rest of the cast.

* YouMightRememberMeFrom: Creator/CandiceBergen's earlier claim to fame was on the [[LongRunner long-running]] sitcom ''Series/MurphyBrown''.
** And Christian Clemenson played sidekick to Bruce Campbell as another lawyer, Socrates Poole, in ''Series/TheAdventuresOfBriscoCountyJr''.
*** Perhaps more relevantly, Clemenson played Spader's brother in Bad Influence.
*** John Larroquette, who joined the cast as the straight-laced DeadpanSnarker Carl Sack is certainly better known for playing a lawyer, who was the complete opposite on ''Series/NightCourt'', Dan Fielding.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Nicknamed the "science fiction retirement home" for featuring [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Captain Kirk]], [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Odo]] (who clearly prefers working with Sisko), [[Film/{{Stargate}} Daniel Jackson]], [[Film/TwoThousandTenTheYearWeMakeContact SAL 9000]] and [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Seven of Nine]] among others.
** [[UpToEleven Taken even further]] in a third season episode with [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Odo]] ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine and]]'' [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Quark]], who are described as "old friends," arguing with each other.
** [[Film/BladeRunner Zhora]] appeared as Beverly Bridge, Denny's girlfriend and eventual (for about half an hour) seventh wife.
** Guest starring [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Neelix]]. And the voice of [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Leela]], if you're in to that kind of thing.
** Looks like Series/MurphyBrown has a successful legal career after broadcasting.
** Now GinaTorres (Zoe on ''Series/{{Firefly}}'') has appeared too.
