Ha ha, I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense. I know Frakes started out by directing a few TNG episodes, and now I see his name pop up in other shows as well.
I just imagine Gates McFadden trying to expand her resume, and when they ask her what experience she has directing, she says "I directed an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation." Then they ask her which one, she tells them "Genesis" and they're like "WHAT? GTFO!"
