Former Las Vegas headliner and Time Tunnel star James Darren played this recurring Rat Pack-era style singer in the sci-fi series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. A mere holodeck character (created by writer/producer Ira Stephen Behr), he was thus doubly fake! James Darren actually had a number one hit in 1961 with the Grammy-nominated song "Goodbye Cruel World." Riding the popularity of his Star Trek character, Darren released a 1999 comeback-esque album, This One's From the Heart, chock full of Sinatra-era classics that mister Vic Fontaine would be right at home with. Ring-a-ding-ding, you bozos!

Darren also voiced fictional singer Jimmy Darrock on an episode of The Flintstones.
