King Abdullah II of Jordan made headlines this week after posing in military fatigues in a post on the official Royal Hashemite Court's Facebook page.
The image sparked - incorrect - rumours he would personally participate in strikes on Isis to avenge the murder of Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh.
King Abdullah would have been qualified to do so: he is a qualified helicopter pilot who trained at Sandhurst and commanded Jordan's special forces before coming to the throne in 1999.
Back when he was still a prince in 1996, King Abdullah appeared as an extra on Star Trek - a video of the incident has recently surfaced again after going viral on Reddit.
According to the Star Trek Voyager Companion the episode was called Investigations, and while it was a non-speaking un-credited role it is on the King Abdullah's IMDB page.
In other news, one of King Abdullah's pet projects in Jordan involves building a Star Trek theme park, according to the Daily Mail.
